    "Information on optional extras such as baggage and seat selection must be clearly available from the first stage of the booking process."

    Is that before or after you pick the flight you want to go on?

    Yes it does, the basic price must include the debit fee charge although there can be extra charges for paying by credit card

    Misleading omission under the CPRs if you were not informed of those hotel charges
