Brit flies to Dubai for £65 – less than it costs to fill up a tank of petrol | The Sun

A MAN has revealed how he was able to fly to Dubai for less than filling up his car with a tank of fuel.

Callum Ryan, 22, challenged himself to fly all the way to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates for less than a tank of fuel.

He shared the cheeky trip on his TikTok account after he spotted a series of cheap flights online.

He booked a flight from London Luton to Sofia in Bulgaria with Wizzair at a cost of £21.99.

After spending a night in Sofia, he took another flight to Abu Dhabi with the same airline for £35.16.

Once he arrived in Abu Dhabi, he took a 90-minute bus from the airport to Dubai, which set him back £7.51.

In total, he spent £64.66 on his journey to Dubai, which cost £15 less than filling up a 55 litre Ford Focus.

Callum, from Milton Keynes, told South West News Service: "It was my second time visiting Dubai, and I've always wanted to go back.

"Dubai is a crazy city so to go back for such a small price, as cheap as it was, it was a no-brainer for me. I will definitely do it again.

"When I got there I made the most of Dubai with my friend, we went to a water park, an off-road excursion, and to the mall – it was a crazy experience."

Callum flew out on June 2, 2023, and arrived in Dubai on June 3, 2023.

He checked in to Citymax Hotel Bur Dubai for four nights which worked out at £21.75 per night because he split the bill with his pal.

Callum then flew back to the UK on June 7, with his return journey costing £72.85.

While the video has only had 3,000 views on the social media platform, many have been left shocked at the cost of Callum's budget trip.

One person wrote: "Unbelievable."

While another added: "This is brilliant, I'm off to book."

This isn't the first time that Callum has set himself a budget travel challenge.

Earlier this year he revealed how he flew to Italy to get a pizza – and it still cost less than a Domino's even with his flight.

He paid just £8 for a last-minute plane ticket from London Stansted to Milan.

In the video, he showed how he packed lightly with just a small backpack before boarding his Ryanair flight – and lucked out when no one sat next to him.

In a follow-up video, he then headed to a local restaurant in Milan, where he paid just €8.50 (£7.50) for a margarita pizza and another €2.50 (£2.22) for service charge.

Adding that to the flight, it means he paid just £17.72 – cheaper than a medium Domino's pizza which costs £19.99.

He's also flown to Ibiza for less than a crate of beer.
