They're certainly not low cost now. They appear to be upfront when you go to book online. Until you go through the process.
Apart from the return cost which is £200, they also charge you for 20kg of baggage at £41 per person, and £6 for a cheap seat.
And here is the kicker. Do not try and change passenger details after you have booked. Even if you just try and change the name details of one of your party (Made a mistake in the spelling maybe?) they will charge you £35 for both the outbound and return journeys. Another £70 pounds for no appreciable extra work by these scavengers. Where it gets worse is if you have to, as I did, substitute a new passenger into one of the seats. They charged another £144 because the seat price now is that much higher and they expect me to pay the difference (Incidentally in the small print they state that they won't refund you if the price is lower).
I think a letter to trading standards is in order.
And if you read this, easycrap, don't hesitate to use the comment form.

I’ve just spent nearly an hour on the phone with my son.
The usual pleasantries exchanged the subject changed to politics of the forthcoming election. After a short period he came out with some shocking revelations.
IN THE LAST ELECTION HE VOTED LIBDUMB! Almost as bad is his choice of newspaper. That bloody left wing rag, The Guardian.
.And I thought I’d brought him up with respectable values.
I have failed.
Actually not quite.
In fact he only voted for the Libdem candidate as his constituency is hard labour and he knew that voting conservative was a waste of time.
The reason why he reads the groan is for the amusement factor when reading online comments by those of a lefty, ignorant of real life, hard done by, guardian reading twats.
I’ve persuaded him to vote UKIP, and to read the Daily Mail.
If I can persuade my son, should I stand for parliament?
