Airline Extras, Fees etc....Just booked - and paid for, a flight from Luton to Varna with Wizzair.
I seem to remember awhile back - airline card fees were to be scrapped.
EasyJet did just that - but then introduced a £9 'Admin' fee.
Ryanair still charges a card fee. Wizzair charges both a booking fee - 'And' card fee.
Was still a great bargain compared to other airlines - by a big margin.
However, it seems the fees are very much still in force. Wizzair has a credit card - that isn't available in The UK.
When booking a flight with it - there's no card charge. However, there's an annual fee.
Oh - and the booking fee (£10 'Per person ! !') still applies.
Also (still with Wizzair) - there is a 'Bank transfer' option, with a fee of £3.25.
I thought I might give that a go - instead."Fine" - said my bank - "But there's a £25 charge".
Wondered if anyone had any thoughts on it all.

4I look at it as simply breaking down the cost into the component pieces. British Airways might give you a price with all the fees hidden inside while an LCC shows each line item separately.
For example, here in Canada, they are finally getting around to passing a law that says an airline cannot advertise $199 Toronto to London and then add on $250 in airport fees. But really, what's the difference? In the end you pay what you pay. The final total cost is all that really matters.
