    each way

    What is "each way" saying in the following?

    Charging one transaction fee for a debit card payment was perhaps justifiable, but to charge 5 pounds each way for each passenger in a single transaction ---40 pounds for a return trip for a family of four --- was hard to stand behind.

    Does it mean "charging twice, when they leave and come back each"?

    Thank you.

    Yes
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: each way

    Does "each way" mean "each direction" here? My dictionary says "way" can mean "a particular direction".

    Yes. My guess is this was an airline.
