Travelocity charging $10 fee on United tickets

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Travelocity.com began charging a $10 per ticket service fee on United tickets in the absence of a marketing agreement.

In recent months, Travelocity has revealed marketing pacts with Northwest, Continental and Delta, which, of course, have all eliminated commissions to traditional agencies in the past few days.

Northwest and Continental eliminated Internet commissions months earlier.

Asked if Travelocity receives cash -- as opposed to indirect compensation -- for selling these carriers tickets, a Travelocity spokesman said: "That's a general detail that's correct."
