Flying with budget airlines has its perks, but some of the things they charge aren’t as affordable as the tickets. If you want to avoid extra fees and make sure your ticket is as cheap as you thought, here are three common mistakes that you should avoid at all costs.

Picking Seats

We all want to escape the horrors of the middle seat, but this will cost you extra when you’re flying with a low-cost airline. If your flight is too short and you’re flying alone, paying extra so you can choose a different seat usually isn’t worth the trouble.

Checking In Late

Checking in at the airport usually isn’t the best idea when it comes to budget airlines. In addition to wasting time in the check-in queue if you’re flying with nothing but a carry-on, this step is best done beforehand because low-cost airlines charge extra for late check-in.

Extra Baggage

Traveling light is your best bet when it comes to budget airlines. They tend to charge pretty expensive baggage fees, especially if you didn’t make a payment online. If you’re traveling with friends and family, you can always pack a single suitcase to save up on baggage fees.
