PAY TO LEAVE Before spending all your vacation money on souvenirs, keep some cash handy for the flight home. International departure and arrival taxes are on the rise, along with such levies as airport service and security charges, not to mention the more obscure "noise taxes." While many of these fees are built in to ticket prices, countries like Jamaica collect them on departure--cash only.
