BA Baggage

Hi

I am booking flights from London to Croatia through BA, I can get them from opodo for £327 without baggage. I can book with BA.com and get a bag each for £383, would I be safer doing this? how much extra would it be to add two bags if I was to take the opodo option?

Thanks.

Avoid Opodo like the plague. Book direct with BA, Opodo used to be fine until they were taken over by edreams. There are several posts on here about people being charged twice, or finding an extra substantial non-refundable booking charge on their credit cards, and worst of all having the money taken and no tickets.

SO AVOID

It's £20 for the first additional bag each way so the Opodo fare would end up at £367. I would be careful about booking from Opodo, lots of complaints in here about them.

DO NOT touch Opodo with a bargepole. They're now owned by eDreams, many times verified on this forum as the scummiest third party booker out there.

Book directly with BA, you'll get all the details of their cabin baggage only fares very clearly displayed on ba.com, and you can decide whether it's worth it.

Thanks for the help folks, it seems it will only work out £20 cheaper, so I will go directly through BA.com then.

Hi

And of course the fare Opodo offer might not even exist and you end up getting tied into an escalating fare as well as reservation charges which according to other posters Opodo don't mention up front.
