Every August, the whole family travels . I drove to Scotland last year, and this year I went to Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. There are not many options for flying from the UK to Belgrade. Finally, I choose WizzAir, which is the cheapest in Europe. Air, departing from Luton Luton.
Luton/Luton (Luton) is my first place to settle in the UK, and I have been living in this small town from 2004 to 2011 when I went abroad.

Low-cost airlines cost money for everything
Low-cost airlines need to reduce costs, so many things have to be bought, such as seat selection, which has to be bought. Ryannair and Wizzair are low-cost airlines. We are a family of four traveling. If we want to sit together this time, we have to pay for seat selection. The average seat is 20 pounds, and it costs 160 pounds for 4 people to choose a seat. It is said that Ryanair Ryanair has to pay extra if you want to choose a window seat. This way of making money is a bit ugly.
Drinks and snacks on the plane also cost money. In 2009, I went back and forth between Geneva Airport and Luton Airport in Switzerland . At that time, I liked to buy a small bottle of tomato juice on the EasyJet plane, which was 2 pounds at that time. This time I came back for a meal on Wizz Air. Four people ordered two cups of instant noodles, three juices (one green tea and two apple juices), three bread sandwiches, and a small box of Pringles, a total of 34.5 EUR.
There is a limit on the size of luggage on the plane for free, and you have to pay extra (£40) for small suitcases on the plane, and about £80 for a 20kg piece of checked luggage.
Low-cost airlines may be cheap for personal travel with small luggage (no seat selection, random designation, no checked luggage, just a small bag for free boarding)
Low-cost airlines generally have very early or late flights
It is probably because the airlines need money to apply for the route time, so usually the plane is early in the morning. This time, the flight to Belgrade (Belgrade) is at 6:20 in the morning, so I can only check in at the hotel next to Luton Airport one day in advance. , I have to get up at 3 o’clock in the morning the next day, and the hotel has breakfast at 4 o’clock. After breakfast, the whole family walks to the airport in less than ten minutes.
