You’ve probably already seen Air Asia proudly proclaiming their “No Admin Fee, No Fuel Charge” policy. All seems swell as you choose your destination and dates and fill in your credit card details. But before you hit the pay button, look out for the “convenience fee,” charging you an extra B100 per person for a roundtrip booking via credit/debit card. Hang on—who isn’t booking an AirAsia ticket with a card, isn’t that the whole point of online booking? While it might seem a small grumble, it does take the gloss off of their whole fee-free campaign.

It's very hard for relief efforts to get into Nepal right now. I was living in Phuket when the Tsunami hit, and for the first couple weeks, locals were definitely more effective at providing relief than organizations that had no foothold in the island. The followings NGOs are all present in Nepal right now, and have been present since before the earthquake struck on April 25, 2015.
