This Legend refused to pay £45 charge to check-in extra luggage on Easyjet flight

We all hate airlines due to their restrictive rules and often expensive fees but Matt Botten wasn’t having any of it.

On the outbound trip to Reykjavik, Iceland from Gatwick, London he was faced with a £45 excess charge for his bag, so he just emptied the bag there and then and put the clothes on.

Travelling with his Girlfriend Abigail White, they made it through security even with the Michelin Man style layering of t-shirts, jumpers, trousers and even shoes poking out of his pockets.


He wrote on Facebook:

‘We’re going to Iceland baby!

‘And how to do it in a financially frugal manner, without having to stump up forty five bloody quid for a hold bag? Simply by wearing EVERYTHING I OWN.’

What do you think:

Legend of idiot?

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
