She told friends on Facebook: “How’s this for a great price?

“I have just tried to book cheap flights… for a weekend trip to stay with some good friends.

“I Googled ‘cheap flights to Faro’, found eDreams (‘Great Trips at Great Prices’ is their slogan) were offering the best, with Ryanair and Monarch Airlines, at a cost for the two of us of £164.07.

“I duly booked and fortunately was alert enough to realise – before clicking ‘confirm’ that the final cost was the truly – as advertised – great price of £23,659,382,125.95!!!”

She added: “Don’t think our current account would have run to it this month…”
