    I have just searched for a hotel in Turkey via price comparison sites. For One week all inclusive for people people, this was showing as £1228 on a popular booking site, however, the same holiday is showing as 2,298TL (£628) on a Turkish website. When I went to book I was then asked for a Turkish ID Number or tick a box to say that I wasn't a Turkish Citizen which I did, I was then presented with the following:

    WARNING: You stated that the visitor is not a citizen of the Republic of Turkey. The facility prices mentioned for the reservation can only be applied for Turkish citizens. If the guest is a citizen of a different country other than the TC, the facility may charge a price difference. If such a situation occurs, our related departments will communicate with you.

    ....but the "price difference" Isn't specified therefore leaving it open. So I called the hotel myself and asked and they said that foreigners would be charged an extra 200 Euros, yes Euros, per day per apartment !!

    I don't mind a little price discrimination....but that is taking the kebab!

    This is very acknowledged + bios. Do you know how much double international students have to pay for their tuition more than normal local students in many countries such as USA, Canada, UK or in Europe?
