The more eagle-eyed of you may have today noticed that we’ve added a new destination to our upcoming trips on the sidebar. Reykjavik, Iceland. We’ve never been to Iceland before. However, it’s somewhere that seems to be popping up on a lot of travel blogs recently.

Unfortunately, that alone wasn’t enough to convince us to visit. Post our trip to Norway, we’re very conscious of the cost of certain locations, and Iceland is one of them.

However, when I saw this little gem of an offer pop up on one of my favourite sites, Secret Flying. I knew we were going to be heading to Iceland. Notice the little ‘Members Only’ phrase in brackets. That refers to what I know as the only airline to have a discount club, Wizz Air.

What Is The Wizz Discount Club?

The Wizz Discount Club is an annual subscription that allows you to save money on Wizz Air flights & the cost of baggage.

Wizz Air Discount Club Price

The Wizz Discount Club is made up of two parts.

The first is the Standard Membership. This is designed for solo and couple travellers. The cost of the membership is €29.99 a year and covers the member plus one companion.

It’s worth noting however that the leading member must always be travelling if you want the companion to get the discount.

The second is group membership. This is designed for small businesses and families. Access to the group Wizz Discount Club membership costs €59.99 and covers the member plus up to 5 companions.

The companions can vary between trips, however, it’s important that the leading named a member of the Wizz Discount Club is travelling for the discount to be applied. This is the same price regardless of where you live. For example, we still had to pay €29.99 even though we’re based in the UK.

What Are The Benefits Of The Wizz Discount Club

The benefits of the Wizz Discount Club have been reduced significantly over the past number of years and right now the two benefits of the Wizz Discount Club are a saving of €10 per flight ticket along with a saving of €5 per checked-in bag.

While this might not seem like much of a saving (especially if like us you don’t travel with checked-in bags) it does quickly add up. The Wizz Air website has an intuitive calculator that can help you map out how much you might save over the course of a one-year annual membership.

As a standard member if you do any of the following with Wizz Air over the course of a year you’ll break even (or more) on the cost of a discount club membership;

  • 2 people on 1 flight (break even plus €10 saving)
  • 1 person on 2 flights (break even plus €10 saving)
  • 1 person on 1 return flight with checked-in baggage

My Wizz Discount Club Experience

Here’s an insight into one of our years as a Wizz Discount club;

Doncaster to Sofia

Our one-way flights from Doncaster to Sofia were €19.99 each (€39.98) and at this point, we also purchased our standard membership to Wizz Discount Club for €29.99 which brought our total flight cost down to €9.99.

  • Cora’s Flight – €9.99 (Saved €10)
  • Helen’s Flight – €9.99 (Saved €10)
  • Wizz Discount Club Membership (€29.99)

We didn’t take any baggage on this flight so at this point our savings were €20, however, we still had another €9.99 to make our money back from the membership.

Bucharest to Budapest

Our next Wizz Air flight was from Bucharest to Budapest, this flight was also €19.99 each (€39.98) and as such we saved a further €20.

  • Cora’s Flight – €9.99 (Saved €10)
  • Helen’s Flight – €9.99 (Saved €10)

At this point, we’d not only broken even but saved €10.01 by having the Wizz Discount membership.

It’s worth mentioning that at all times Wizz Air was the cheapest airline for us to fly with.

If you’re going to be paying more to fly with Wizz Air even though you have a discount club membership when compared to another airline, then it’s clearly not worth it…

London to Iceland (Return)

By this point, we were already in profit as a result of being Wizz Discount Club members. However, we managed to save even further by grabbing two return flights to Iceland from London Luton.

These flights were €29.99 each, however, thanks to the Wizz Discount Club we only paid €19.99 each (€39.98 in total).

  • Cora’s Flight – €19.99 (Saved €10)
  • Helen’s Flight €19.99 (Saved €10)

From our two one-way flights and one return flight, we saved €30.01 by becoming Wizz Discount club members. This is based on the two of us travelling using that standard membership.

These savings are based on two people taking two one-way flights and one return flight on the €29.99 standard membership.

How To Calculate If The Wizz Discount Club Is Right For You

Unless you’re planning on booking all your flights for the next year deciding whether or not the Wizz Air discount club is right for you can be difficult. As a rule of thumb, I’d try and ensure that there are two of you using the membership.

That way the savings are automatically twice as easy to achieve when compared to a solo traveller (who would have to achieve twice the amount of savings compared to a couple to make the discount club worthwhile)

Next, look at the flight or flights you are planning on taking with Wizz Air. In our case, it reduced the cost of the membership down from €29.99 (around €26) to around just €10 based on the savings we were making.

Finally, think about where you’re planning on spending your next twelve months. For us it was Europe and that’s where all of Wizz Airs’ flights are based. Therefore it was likely even after our first flight from Doncaster to Sofia, that we’d be flying with Wizz Air again over the course of the next 12 months.

Of course, unless you can guarantee that you’re going to save by getting the Wizz Discount Club membership the day you buy it.

i.e. booking multiple flights or saving the cost of the membership or more from your one set of flights then it is going to be a calculated risk that you’re going to want to consider.

How To Cancel Wizz Discount Club

Unlike other subscriptions, this membership discontinues after a year unless you renew it when booking a flight after your subscription end date.

For example, our Wizz Discount Club standard membership expires on the 25th May. If I was to book a flight at any point after the 25th of May then I’d be asked to renew my Wizz Discount Club in order to get the Wizz Discount Club price.

How To Fix The “WDC Membership Has To Be Purchased Before Continuing The Booking With A WDC Fare” Error

If you notice the error “WDC membership has to be purchased before continuing the booking with a WDC fare” upon trying to book your flight it means you’ve selected a Wizz Air Discount Club fare, without having an active membership.

If you have a Wizz Discount Club membership be sure to log in to prevent the error, alternatively if you don’t have a Wizz Discount Club membership you’ll need to purchase one in order to be able to capitalise on the discounted fares available to members.

    Hi, thanks for a lot of helpful information. I also decided to join, paid for the ticket and for the membership, but for some reason, it doesn’t show anywhere that I am a member. Did you have to be approved? Or wait for an e-mail from wizzair? Thanks

    1. Hi Alexandra, really, really glad we could help! 😀

      1. Hi, I have the same problem. I paid for group membership and book a flight. Then when I going to book a new ticket ask me to paid for membership again, I choose”already member and login” but still wants to charge me for a club discount membership. I have to wait for a day or something?

    2. Hi, That happen to me also, Did you find out what was wrong? I book a ticket and paid for membership, than a few minutes after I was trying to book a new ticket but dosent show Im a member, even when I loginn me again. Seems like Im not member.

      1. If you’ve already booked the ticket post the upgrade to Wizz Discount Club. Then you’ll need to contact them to get them to refund the difference 😀

        1. JOHN LEEDALE says:

          I’m looking to book a flight in Mar 2022 (more than 12 months from now). If I join the discount club, will it start from the flight date? If it starts at the booking date, the discount club would finished before I fly.

          1. Hi John, it starts when you purchase the flight not when you take the flight. Although all flights booked during the time having the membership will be eligible even if you’re no longer a member once the flight takes place – if that makes sense 🙂

    3. Hi Alexandra,
      I have the same situation. How you have solved this? Thanks.

  2. Mike Nathanson says:

    Hi. This is very helpful; thank you. But….what I can’t see is how to book flights if you are not a member? Maybe advance flights (I am looking at November) are only available for Discount Club members? Or maybe I have missed something…? Do you know?

    1. Hi Mike,

      You should be able to book whether you’re a member or not it’s just members that can’t get the discount. However, there could be fares, routes or advanced bookings that we don’t know about where only members can book.

      Hope this helps 😀

    2. Mike Nathanson says:

      Many thanks, Mike

  3. When trying to book flights the discount suggsted is almost ?200 as there are 4 of us.
    But when going through the process – no discounts is showing.
    Do i have to join and then log in to book & get discount?

    1. Hi,

      Yes, you’ll be able to see the discounted price but not access it unless you upgrade to the Wizz Discount Club prior to or during your booking process and login to your account.

  4. Bernadette Leggett says:

    If I book flights for a 4 people including myself and buy the Group wizzair club discount can I still use this to travel say on my own or just two of us throughout the year. Or do I have to buy a standard wizzair club to travel without a group.

    1. Yes you can. That is fine. Hope this was helpful 🙂

  5. Lea Izabela says:

    I was wondering what is the outcome of the following: I have bought tickets as a member of Wizz Air Discount Club for me and 3 more persons. But now I won”t be able to fly. Some people told me that it might be a problem, penalties or so. Are there any rules regarding this situation? What can those 3 people expect on the airport?
    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Lea, sadly it’s not something I’ve experienced. I’d suggest contacting Wizz directly and explaining the situation.

  6. Alex Jones says:

    Very useful topic about Wizz discount club to know everything. Thank you for this information.

  7. I joined the Wizz Club but somehow my country of origin got got included in my name description! Whenever I book now I then need to get a name change at the airport-they never charge for this change but there doesn’t appear to be a means of correcting the problem within the Club Membership. I wish they would sort it out for me.

  8. It is a pity,as of 2022, Wizzair are charging £20 for each flight leg ordinary seat booking, when you only want to travel with two cabin bags and Priority Boarding, or travelling with one bag. This often makes their fares almost twice as much as Ryanair who charge about £6 per normal seat each flight for their two cabin bags with priority boarding. You only get free seats if you choose there very expensive check in bags deals. This will put a lot of normal passengers off Wizzair in favour or Ryanair, when travelling light.
