A MUM revealed how she and her mate ended up flying to Lanzarote for the day for just £23 – and had the time of their lives.
Posting on TikTok, the pair, who have seven kids between them, decided to make the 2,500-mile trip when spotting the cheap flights.
They then spent just nine hours on the Spanish island, soaking up the son.
In the video, she showed herself sitting by the beach and enjoying a cocktail, saying it was “better than a Sunday round Sainsbury’s!”
She added in the captions: “9 hours in Lanzarote. Brunch, shopping, cocktails – next stop beach!”
“A Burger King to sober up at the airport back in my own bed for 12:30am!”
“Ladies, if you only think you have a day to spare, make it count! You can absolutely do it.
“We got up at 3.45am – we’ve had the best day in Lanzarote.
“We’ve been in the sea, had three sex on the beach cocktails, been to Zara – what more do you need hun? Book the flight!”
Her video has been watched more than 1million times abd oeople on TikTok were torn, with some loving the idea.
One person wrote: “Why not! Life is for living enjoy.”
Another said: “Life goals.”
A third agreed: “Not me immediately convincing the girls this is THE best idea.”
Some had tried it out for themselves: “I did this in October -£38 return flights to Milan! 6am flight pasta lunch in the sun had giant Aperol Spritz’s & pizza home for 12.30am.”
Others didn’t agree, saying it was a long journey for a day trip.
Someone commented: “Over eight hours flying plus airport time and transfers. Just for a few hours? Not for me.”
Another added: “Waste of flight money going for a day.”
They aren’t the only Brits to try this out.
Abbie, from Manchester, told her 19k TikTok followers about her cheap – and fast – trips abroad.
She said she gets £10 return flights to go on holiday for the day across Europe.
Going by ‘Torkersss’ on TikTok, she captioned the video with: “This is your sign to catch a cheap flight abroad for the day.
“I went to Ibiza with Ryanair for £9.98 return.”
Another woman revealed how she managed to bag a three-night stay in a European capital city for £42pp, including flights.
