Flying charges set to take off

Have your say

Holidaymakers booking a last-minute Easter break or summer getaway on a budget airline should beware of a host of new fees after Ryanair and Easyjet hiked charges.

The pair have increased baggage charges and flight fees for paying on plastic. Ryanair has also added a new £2 cancellation fee per leg which is not included in the initial price of a trip.

The jumps come shortly after consumer lobby group Which? submitted a ‘super complaint’ to the Office of Fair Trading calling on firms to stop profiteering from card fees which it says sometimes cost firms just a few pence to process.
