Budget Airline Now Charges Passengers A Fee For Keeping Fares Low

Budget Airline Now Charges Passengers A Fee For Keeping Fares Low

Hungarian budget airline Wizz Air recently announced a new offer called Fare Lock that allows passengers to lock in the cheap prices they see online for 48 hours — for a fee.

Fare Lock gives passengers two days to decide whether they want to purchase the low fare they’ve found for a fee of 3 Euros per person and flight.

    Slightly misleading headline there – the implication is that the airline racks on a mandatory fee to disguise its artificially low fares, much like Las Vegas “resort fees”. Really this is an entirely optional extra service. My question here would be, is this something they didn’t offer before, or something they used to do for free?

    Wow, how innovative. Not at all like Fare Lock offered by United for years which does – well, apparently exactly the same thing except for different pricing and the option of a short or long fare lock. They even copied the name..
