I never thought this would happen. When I was ready to finalize the purchase of my airline ticket through ASAP, I received a message.
How appreciative are you of your booking agent? Following this question of me, i was reading some dollar amounts. They ranged from $6 up to $35. These were the amounts suggested by ASAP to give to the booking agent in addition to the airline tickets.
Sort of like a gratuity. But, in order to finalize my purchase I first needed to select how much of a gratuity I MUST give. This was not an option. I could not continue to finalize my ticket purchase until I chose the appropriate gratuity.
I thought this was very strange. I have never been required to give my booking agent a gratuity. I have used many online travel sites and this was the first time this has happened. I consider this illegal.
Again, this was not optional. I was required to give my booking agent a gratuity in order to make the purchase.
