Pay for a better airline seat or hotel Wi-Fi? No thanks.
Most travelers steer clear of optional fees to make their trip more comfortable, according to new data from reward platform Switchfly. Roughly half of the 9,996 travelers surveyed said they "have no intention of purchasing" extras including priority boarding access, upgraded seating or in-flight Wi-Fi. (See chart below for what services travelers are, and aren't, willing to pay for.)
It's getting harder to avoid some fees as major carriers segment their cabins to introduce no-frills economy fares that come without many of the trappings travelers have gotten used to, like the ability to select a seat or change their travel plans.
