A bargain hunter saved money by flying to Berlin as part of his journey home rather than take a train trip within the UK.
Jordon Cox, a blogger for MoneySavingExpert.com – where he goes by the name The Coupon Kid – saved £7.72 by travelling from Sheffield to Essex via Berlin.
And he's the first to admit it sounds crazy.
Writing on MSE he said: "I know that flying is not very environmentally friendly and I won't do this every time I travel, however this was the cheapest way for me to get home and I got to enjoy a 'free' mini holiday to a city I've always always wanted to visit."

His journey started in his home at Essex and he booked a cheap train up to Sheffield where he was teaching a class on couponing. (What else?)
But his journey home – Sheffield to Essex – was coming in a bit too pricey for the thrifty 18-year-old at £51.79.

"It needed some blue-sky thinking," said Cox who then realised he could add on international travel to make his journey cheaper.
And obviously, he got that Berlin experience too. Here's what Jordon got up to during his afternoon city tour.
