Flying within the UK, booking on Sunday night he would have spent £172 on a return flight departing from Newcastle on the Saturday rather then head to the Balearic island.

‘I can’t wait for it now I’ve booked it. I’m going to pack my shorts and make a little holiday out of it,’ said the 33-year-old, who works as a purchasing manager. ”I’ll have a couple of pints and a walk around Menorca.’

He’s more excited for his overnight stay in an airport hostel than the finals game, he told The Sun.

The deal finder has also secured a lift from Sanstead airport to Saturday’s game, as well as a ride home, he said.
