airlines! Does booking direct cost more?????

I,ve just been on line checking our future flight plans and booking DIRECT with the airline costs more ( $600 or so ) than booking with an online booking agency.Am I going wrong somewhere:?

Dee is right. They love foreign currency! We bought things with sterling and they are very willing to accept it! Or, they were when we went a few years ago.

Just a suggestion. Go to a Large Bank and just ask them if they do it and what the rate of exchange is.
No banks have Chinese currency and no kiosks have it.Its like getting gold of gold dust :(
