Anyone got any tips for buying cheap tickets with Wizz? They always come out more expensive than EasyJet or Ryanair, especially inward to UK. I'd love to fly with them but they're priced almost like full service

jdcg - be flexible on dates of travel and route. Peak prices are typically because of high demand. Try to avoid Bulgarian beaches in August, and anywhere around UK bank or school holidays. Consider combining Wizzair with another airline (eg Ryanair outbound, Wizzair return) as this may well reduce the cost - look at Google flights for help on this.

You can find climate data on the web (eg wikipedia) for many cities in Europe; September can have surprisingly pleasant weather and avoids the August peak. If you're thinking of going to a major city (e.g. Prague or Budapest) there will be plenty of things to keep you entertained indoors so travelling in quieter periods such as October may be worth considering.

Wizz's website has a timetable feature showing fares on a particular route for an entire month. Have a play around with it and you may find dates that work for you.

Wizz's discount club can be good if you're doing 2 or more round trips in a year.

Enjoy your trip !

davidjohnson6 - thank you! We're wanting to fly to NE Poland in early September and wanted to use the new flights to SZY. Flying there is ok, but returns are already over 100 each. We've used FR to KUN before and just wanted to try something different. Whenever I try to use Wizz as an alternative they always come up as more expensive.

Interesting that Wizz are diversifying their Greater London(ish) offering by starting Gatwick. I wonder if they will look at the same with MAN/LPL/DSA, although I guess their LPL/DSA network is still developing so that may take the focus in the short/medium term.

In relation to the post I made earlier:
http://www.pprune.org/9275281-post988.html

The president of Krakow airport has now resigned as many predicted following the appointment of a new chairman last month who was the previous president. The new chairman was widely believed to be a political appointment. There is now even more talk that Wizz are in negotiations with KRK.

Jan Pamuła as expected has reigned as president of Krakow airport just two months after the political appointment of former president Kamil Kaminski as chairman. The two never got on in the past, with Kaminski having connections to LOT and being less favorable to Ryanair whereas Pamuła was more in favour of low cost carriers.

This will fuel speculation from two months ago that Wizz seeing a possible opening in Krakow and certainly it may make Ryanair try and play Krakow and Katowice off one another more because they are going to find negotiations tougher in Krakow now I would say.

There is still ongoing rumors about Modlin Airport with Polish State Airports wanting to take over control of that in addition to the main airport in Warsaw and run them as a duo airport strategy, however Polish State Airports showed much less interests in Modlin until the growth of that airport started to grow at a large rate, and many believe that they would like to take over that airport in a bid to stunt Ryanair's growth to protect LOT at Chopin airport.

With Wizz tending to have a much better relationship with Polish State Airports, this could be good this for them in both Krakow and Warsaw.
