A MOTHER-of-three was stunned to find a family holiday to Mexico for two weeks during Christmas would cost over £3 million – working out to £633,000 per person.
Debbie Andrioli, from Stratford-upon-Avon was looking for a holiday with her family to Cancun in Mexico with British Airways when she spotted the rather shocking price.
For five return flights and a fortnight staying at Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, she was quoted a total of £3,178,612.
Despite it being an all-inclusive holiday with checked baggage included, the average holiday would normally cost around £2,000 to £3,000 per person for a similar break, not over £600,000.
Debbie took to Twitter to ask British Airways and BA CEO Alex Cruz what had gone wrong.
She wrote: “I was searching for a 2 week #holiday to Mexico for my family (2 adults, 3 kids) over Christmas.
“This one from @BritishAirways comes in at just over £3million for us all. It is all inclusive, but I think it’s a bit steep. Can we haggle @alex_cruz?”
One social media user was shocked to find they were still travelling in economy for the price.
Debbie replied: “Maybe we’ll get an upgrade at the airport.”
She would have at least been able to collect over three million Avios points if she booked the holiday, according to the quote.
British Airways confirmed the hotel has since been taken down from the website while they look into the issue with the supplier.
A spokesperson told Sun Online Travel: “We always want our customers to feel like a million dollars when they’re on holiday with us, but our holidays to Mexico start at £843pp (for seven days), so nobody ever needs to pay that much.”
Holidays to Cancun are best booked for the winter, as it is often the cheapest long-haul destination during the colder period.
A young woman was previously left stunned when attempting to book a Gatwick Airport train ticket, only to be quoted £10,000.
The route should only cost £11.
