Landed with £18 fee after using CheapOair [ W4llppr ]

Wanting to book a flight to Glasgow, and being a bit impecunious, I found what I wanted on CheapOair and through them booked with easyJet. When my bank statement came I found that CheapOair had charged me £18 for the privilege of using them, but there is no mention of any fee on their site. Though I am aware of this kind of thing regarding passport application and other sites I did not imagine it would happen on this one. You might know of them already but I thought I ought to report it. BT, Brighton, East Sussex
