A Nigerian lady, Sassy Funke, has disclosed a budget-friendly strategy for people planning to travel abroad, revealing a simple method to secure very cheap international flights.
According to the popular travel advisor, travelers can achieve substantial cost savings by opting to access Cotonou, Benin, and making use of the more budget-friendly flight options available from that location.
The travel advisor emphasized that Nigerians can effortlessly journey to Cotonou by land without the need for expensive domestic flights.
She pointed out that Nigerians do not need a visa to enter the Benin Republic, as both countries are members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
The lady went on to mention that there is no need to take a flight directly to Cotonou, as the town can be easily accessed through the Seme Border.
To maximize this opportunity, the travel advisor advised prospective travelers to be in the Benin Republic at least 24 hours before their scheduled international flight.
As an example of the potential savings, a comparison conducted by Gistreel on a Cotonou to London route versus a Lagos to London route revealed a substantial difference in airfare.
While the Lagos to London ticket was priced at $3,470 or N2.7 million, the Cotonou to London route was listed at $790 or N630,000.

@rachealjeffery4 said; “Before you can travel from Cotonou, you most stay for 40 days inside Cotonou minimum. Or get a travel agent. that will backdate your stay.”
@Not Mother commented; “I flew from Cotonou one time, much better than Lagos tbh.”
@sukisuki10$ said; “Why is their flight cheaper than Nigeria’s is what I want to know. It’s the same distance.”
