[Resolved] Opodo / flight from simferopol to larnaca cyprus - booking ref 5l9wn1

1 United Kingdom Review updated:
Contact information:

I booked a flight on Opodo website from Simferopol Ukraine to Larnaca Cyprus with Ural airlines for the 15th and 16th November 2016. It was a two legged flight. Opodo misled me when paying for the flight they stated I will get a discount and no service charge will be charged, but when the final total came they charged me for the service charge. They also charged for me using a debit card, 10 euros, a very excessive amount.
They also did not give me a chance to include check in baggage with my ticket when I was first purchasing teh ticket on their website.
So when I got to the airport Ural airline charged me 35 euros for checking in my bag from Simferopol to Moscow on 15th November 2016 and then anther 50 euros to check my baggage in from Moscow to Larnaca on 16th November 2016. Even though it was just one ticket I had bought.

    Booking code was 5LN9WNI. The point is as I was making the booking opodo's website offered to waive this fee but when I came to pay, this fee was back on and I ended up paying 10 euros more than I was promised. You have not addressed the baggage fee of almost 80 euros charged by the airline once I was at the airport. Opodo did not give me an opportunity to include my checked in baggage when making the booking. Of course the cost is much higher when you pay at the airport. I was charged baggage fee for each leg of the two legged flight.
