A Brit flew to Portugal and bought peri-peri chicken all for less than £15 - cheaper than the cost of his usual Nando's order. Callum Ryan, 23, usually orders a butterfly chicken, peri salted chips and garlic bread from the fast food chain and wondered if he could get it cheaper elsewhere.

He booked a flight from London Gatwick to Faro, Portugal, with Wizz Air - costing him £8.99. Once he landed in Portugal, Callum went to Frango Piri Piri in Albuferia - where he got half a chicken for just £3.45.

In total, Callum spent £12.44 on the flight and lunch, which was cheaper than his £15 Nando's order. He liked it so much that he decided to splash a little more cash on staying for a few days.

Callum, a content creator, from Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, said: "I ended up having a three-day trip - I wanted to make the most of it. I asked a local taxi driver to find the best chicken and he sent me to Frango Piri Piri.

"It was a typical Portuguese peri-peri chicken. It was a half chicken and it was so nice - I would definitely go back."

In October Callum flew to Spain for a three-day holiday for less than £100 all in. He also flew to Dubai for £64 - less than the cost of filling up his car with fuel.
