Arrived at Wroclaw airport Friday 18th – flight to Luton cancelled. No Wizzair staff at airport. No explanation, no information. By the time we got seen, last flight to any London airport that day had left. Offered (if room) seats on Wizzair Monday, or pay 1800 (£450) for 2 tickets Ryanair to East Midlands that day. Took tickets and were assured would get refund from Wizzair. No offer of food, hotel, phone calls – as stated in their documentation. No warning of cancellation – again as stated. Got claim form from airport staff – but looking at details, only applied if we get a Wizzair flight – even though their Conditions of Carriage say that an alternative Low-cost carrier is acceptable.

A regular traveller between UK and Eastern Europe. Do not expect information about delays and cancellations until the last minute – there is no way to speak directly to Wizz staff and the only way to contact them is via e-mail to customer service – even then, don’t expect a reply! Take your own food – the onboard catering is a disgrace! The ground service varies massively between countries and on the aircraft. Taxes and surcharges – make sure you factor them in, they are excessive on Wizzair compared to easyJet. The low fares of the first 2 years are gone now – check regular carriers such as LOT and BA for similar priced tickets with advantage of mainstream airports and facilities. Its one of the new breed of low-cost airlines so expect to pay heavily for any extra’s such as over baggage allowance / food / drink etc. etc.
