Flying Wizz Air is a miserable experience and one I hope never to experience again. While they may appear cheap, there are all sorts of hidden fines and surcharges. The priority boarding is a complete waste of time and money. On boarding priority and non priority were simply herded into 2 separate tubes and then boarded a coach to the...

Allow electronic boarding passes on the way out, but not on the the way back and would charge the four of us 140 euros to print these off for us. It is very difficult to know where else to get these printed and they allow electronic ones on the way out with no charge (when they know people can easily...

Ridiculous extra charges on check in from online purchases on their website. I bought tickets online and checked in as any normal person would. These scammers did show the 35 extra Euros to check in at the ticket counter in their terms and conditions. They should be fined under some code for misleading terms and conditions.

All aspects of this flight, from security at Budapest Ferihegy airport through to leaving Speke airport in Liverpool. Perfect service from start to finish, except chaotic queuing at Budapest departure gates, as the Ryanair flight to Dublin queue merged with the Wizzair to Speke queue, and there was no Priority queuing for our flight. Myself and my girlfriend had to...

Went through security gates and arrived at the boarding gate, to then be told that actually if I wanted to take my hand luggage as stated on my ticket onto the plane...

Difficult, confusing website, booking is not straightforward, everything is premium rate to get help, FAQ section really unhelpful and couldn't find info on what I needed, and after problems checking in online I had to pay extra for the check in, and extra to have a handbag and a suitcase, which it was unclear when booking, so with extra fees...

We were only away from the Tuesday to the Saturday so missed a good chunk of our trip. The crew could have informed us.
