Air Asia charges convenience fee for credit card bookings

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.

While it might seem a small grumble, it does take the gloss off of their whole fee-free campaign.
