“Rip off and bloody cheats!”

Written on: 18/10/2013

Booked tickets for Xmas - paid around £350 for two, booked few months in advance... First few months after the booking took place, they lowered the prices - then increased it again... Then in October sent a text message that they rescheduled my departure flight half a day earlier (while I'm still at work) and asked me to call them if I want to change to a different date... Calls are 79p per minute on a 0900 number! What's the point of booking system if it all really means: "whenever we can put… Read Full Review

“WizzAir Sucks!!”

Written on: 12/10/2013

They will charge you for everything they possibly can and their carry on regulations are plain stupid! Even if you pay for oversized carry on they will try to convince you it is too big and that you need to pay more. The comfort of flight is terrible and again you have to pay for everything. I am surprised they don't charge to use the restrooms on their flights. This was one of the worst cheap European airlines I used and I will never use them again. I rather pay extra, have comfort of travel… Read Full Review

“Rip off company”

Written on: 26/08/2013 by UlasT (1 review written)

At first, it seems to be a suitable option to fly from Gdansk to Hamburg with this company. Yet, we couldn't check-in online. Other day we had to pay quite much money for the check-in(much more than stated on web-site). As for the luggages, you may go on the board just with a back-pack otherwise it won't suit their standars definetely! So we had to pay another big amount for the luggages. So when we were on the plane, there were plenty of places to sit together(we were brothers), but they said… Read Full Review

“AVOID THESE AMATEURS! ”

Written on: 14/08/2013 by kernkraft (1 review written)

They have no concept of discretion, customer service or value for money. My luggage was 1(!) cm too wide because of the wheel sticking out after my duty-free shopping. That cost me £30, I hope that these awful people go out of business in no time. Trust me, take the coach! Also, avoid Debrecen! They take border control, body-searching so seriously, that you will wonder whether you are in some banana republic. WIZZAIR - NEVER AGAIN!!!… Read Full Review

“asking extra fees without reason”

Written on: 23/07/2013 by sofia1 (1 review written)

Our flight was from Sofia to Einthoven. We made online check in one day before our flight (2.07.2013) but the Wizz air desk in the Sofia insisted to charge check in amount 20 Euro per person. We did not have only a print of our check in. We did not find anybody for complaint there so we had to pay 40 Euro for two pages print. Exactly the place which I paid 40 Euro there was a printer but they did not use it for us. After coming back we ask for reimbursement this amount back unfortunately… Read Full Review

“WizzAir targets expats”

Written on: 16/07/2013

Travel was for my wife + 2 daughters, all with Premium Plus reservations (incl. 3 checked bags + 3 large cabin bags). I purchased WizzAir's Premium Plus package for everyone so that they could check their bags and stow the girl's 2 violins in the overhead bins. Upon arrival at BUD, the check-in agent claimed that my daughters violins were 3 cm longer than allowed for large cabin bags. These were child-sized violins, so think small cases. My wife was then charged $352.75 USD to purchase 2… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/08/2013

faced the same stuation difference was i declined to pay that money (same size issue max 2-3cm) and i couldnt travel(they were so serious if i dont pay i cant leave the country) eventually i said i will pay they offered me to pay in Czech Krouns or credit card.(offered them to pay in euros assuming that we are at Europe they said NO)
They werent kind at all. I guess reason was they tought i am a Turist here and leaving the country and i have to pay. But they mistaken i leave here and i am planing to go court and ask for compensation..

“My sister wasnt allowed into wizzairplane for...”

Written on: 14/07/2013

Myself and my sister Valentina Dimitrov had a highly unpleasant experience with Wizzair on a flight we were planning to take on May 31 fro London Luton to Bucurest Otopenie (08:25am flight). The ladies at the gate closed the gate door before we could enter the plane. Their reasoning was that we were not obedient and it was her decision who to let into the plane or not. She said: "For the official records you have missed the flight." When I asked her for her name initially, she denied giving it… Read Full Review

“You will always pay extra”

Written on: 20/06/2013 by SergioM (1 review written)

The handbag policy of this guys is simply ridiculous. The size of the allowed bag is so small that you will be always paying 30€ more. I have been using the same bag in Ryanair (considered to be strict on this area) without any issue. So,avoid the airline if you are carriying anything else than a beakfast box. Simply silly anti-marketing policy… Read Full Review

“Would give 0 stars if possible”

Written on: 11/06/2013

You'll think you've found a cheap flight. Until you get to the airport..... Delays for hours with no notice or even information about cancellations, baggage fees are deceitful- the online specifications say one thing but the baggage checking cages at the airport are smaller than the online dimensions so you have to pay, staff members make themselves scarce so as not to have to help anyone, difficult to communicate with staff members at all (saw people trying to speak to them in gestures)… Read Full Review

“money for nothing”

Written on: 11/05/2013 by Verhoof (1 review written)

Wizzair moved my flight from Budapest to Eindhoven "for commercial reasons" from a flight time in the afternoon to 6 am in the morning in the night before. As this changed flight was useless for me, I chose the option to cancel the flight. According to Wizzair the ticket costs should be reimbursed in this case. More than eight weeks later and 4 calls to the call centre I still have not received my money. The reasoning is constantly changing: At first there was allegedly some mistake in data… Read Full Review

Bewe's Response to Verhoof's Review

Written on: 19/05/2013

my costs: 550eur and I will get back 65eur (ever...).

extremly bad and misleading company.
all flight conditions, website and the way Eindhoven airport 9in my case) functions is calculated on maximal income with minimal costs. WIzzair earns the most if passenger does not fly: lugagefee they keep, even if there was no Luggage transpprted, "seat protecion fee"is higher than most of the Wizzair ticket prices, and if you mss one flight do not expect that they will re-direct you in a normal way. also: even if it is clear that a fligh can not be uses no money bacjk whatsoever...

raely BAD company

“Wizzair always a positive experience”

Written on: 01/05/2013

Have flown from various airports in Romania (Cluj-Napoca, Targu Mures, Bucharest) to destinations in central and western Europe. Always a nice experience - on time, nice service on board (reasonable prices for a soft drink), and best of all found great prices. I wish they offered more destinations though, or better frequencies… Read Full Review

“Utterly disappointing. ”

Written on: 15/04/2013

I have nothing but words of disappointment for this airline. It never arrives or leaves on time, and they don't even offer a reasonable explanation. I even had to wait 7 hour for my flight to leave! They are not reliable and I would not recommend it to anyone. You can more wisely pay a bigger amount of money and you will be guaranteed the fact that you will leave on time and everything will be fine. If not extremely unpleasant situations WILL occur… Read Full Review

“So bad customer service”

Written on: 10/04/2013 by tacktick (1 review written)

Waiting for 30 minutes for someone to answer my call! And each minute costs a fortune. They have sent me a receipt without my name on it, and i need it to refund my money. I wrote like 5 emails and called a dozen times. No contact with anyone from the company - for days now... This will be the last time to fly with Wizz for sure. What an amateur company they seem to be… Read Full Review
