On a budget? Better not book with a budget airline
Anyone who works in travel knows that budget airlines are often more expensive than regular airlines. But because of clever marketing the travelling public are often blissfully unaware of this.
With all the extra charges it’s difficult to make an exact comparison. However website idealo.co.uk has done just this in a survey comparing airlines such as Easyjet, Ryanair and German Wings with British Airways, Air France, KLM and Swiss across a range of routes.
They have worked out that booking with a budget carrier costs the average family an extra £87 per booking!
