Woman goes to Lanzarote for day for less than it costs to go from London to Manchester

A woman who managed to bag £23 flights to Lanzarote jetted off to the island with her friend as part of a spontaneous day trip.
The mums - who have seven children between them - have been praised for the idea after they left home in the early hours of the morning on Sunday and were back in their own beds by midnight.
You can watch one of the clips below:
“Well my weekend's on the up because I’ve just booked a £23 flight to Spain for the day to blow off the January blues - me and the bestie - the packed lunch is made for the kids on Monday and I’ll be back at midnight!” the mum explained in the first clip.
In follow up videos, the two friends can be seen enjoying a brunch, drinking cocktails on the beach and trying on clothes in Zara.
“Better than a Sunday round Sainsbury’s!” She said.
"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!”
Since the TikToker shared the clip, people have been desperate to know where she managed to find £23 flights.
Others were quick to praise the pair for being so spontaneous and inspiring others to do the same.
"I’m due in 2 weeks and THIS…THIS ladies and gents is the type of Mother I aspire to be. Have a belter," said one mum-to-be.
And a second commented: "Love this idea for me and My best friend... how did you find so cheap? where do you look?"
Meanwhile a third called the idea 'iconic behaviour' and a fourth added: "You’re the best omg."
Others admitted they wouldn't be keen on doing so much travelling in just one day, with the average flight time between the UK and Lanzarote being around four hours.
Meanwhile some shared their own similar experiences, with one recalling: "Did this for a laugh and went to Germany for the day. Sounds cheesey but you just have to see the whole journey as the fun part, not the destination."
And another said: "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."
