I have been saving all my tips from working part-time as a server at Mile Zero Lounge. When I finally was able to save $1000 (from January this year up until early February), I decided to look online and saw a great deal to fly from Edmonton, Canada to London, UK for only $998. I thought, sweet! I could afford that. I went ahead and booked it. Afterwards, I went to check my bank account online to transfer my cash to my credit card. I saw that I got charged for more than $998, so I was confused and was not happy. I called my bank and asked about the transaction. The lady on the other line suggested that maybe the currency was set to USD and not CAD. True enough, when I checked my receipt, it was in USD. Lesson learned? Check that the currency is set to a currency you would like to pay. I ended up paying around $1270 for a roundtrip ticket from Edmonton to London from July 21 to August 5. Anyways, I am happy that this trip is happening. Cannot wait!
