Easyjet scraps £16 per booking admin fee
Budget airline Easyjet has scrapped the £16 per booking administration fee it charged on flights.
The carrier said it had got rid of the charge, for bookings made from today onwards, after a review.
Previously, the fee was included in the price you saw when choosing a price, so the cost didn't jump up later in the booking process. It meant you were generally better off booking as a group, as the £16 fee was split among the passengers, whereas if you booked a single flight you'd have to pay the full £16 yourself.
If you've already paid the fee for a future booking, Easyjet has said you won't be able to get a refund. It added that it cannot give advance warning of changes to fees before it makes them.
