Will the 90/180 Schengen rule apply to us? No. It does not apply to you because you are a Croatian citizen. As long as you are together, it does not apply to your husband because when he is with you he is a "person enjoying the right of free movement under Union law" for the purposes of the Schengen Borders Code.

Adding a passenger would mean you're changing your booking. It's likely that as a low-fare airline, Wizz does not permit bookings to be changed or added-to, or doesn't permit new bookings for someone (the person you want to add) who isn't a member of the Wizz Discount Club. In other words, there may be no link because it can't be done, or can't be done ...

In the interests of completeness, it's worth mentioning that there are signs when entering the UK which warn that processing Italian ID cards is slower than passports or other EU ID cards. They don't have any modern electronic reader or digital signature technology, so the border official probably has to consult an online database to check that it's not a ...
