Shasha advised those wishing to travel from Nigeria to first go to Cotonou by road and then fly from there to London so as to save cost
A Nigerian lady posted a video on TikTok explaining that it is cheaper to fly from Cotonou to London than flying from Lagos to London.
The lady, Grandma Shasha posted a screenshot of the flight cost for the Lagos-London route which also shows the Cotonou-London cost.
In the screenshot, it could be seen that the cost of a flight from Murtala Muhammed Internation Airport, Lagos cost over N1.9 million.
But the same flight from Cotonou to London costs about N374k, which is far cheaper when compared to Lagos-London.
The lady insists that it is better to travel from Cotonou to London instead of flying from Lagos. She said wise travellers first go to Cotonou by road and then fly from there.
“Traveling requires a lot of money and careful planning, after your visa is granted, your next stop is flight booking. Be a smart traveller. For me, it will be a lot easier to go to Cotonou and board the flight since it is visa-free.”
