IF you're planning a last-minute flight to Spain, you might not want to book your flight just yet.

A number of flights have soared in price, costing 10 times much as usual – and it's because of football.

Glasgow team Rangers have qualified for the Europe League final in Seville on May 18 against German side Eintracht Frankfurt.

This has led to desperate Brits trying to get flights to the Spanish destination.

While extra flights were put on for fans, they quickly sold out, with remaining tickets from Gatwick to Seville costing as much as £500 each way.

Prices are even soaring to other parts of Spain which are near enough to travel from for the match.

Destinations including Malaga have seen huge price spikes, with it even affecting Gibraltar and Faro in Portugal.

Flights between Edinburgh and Malaga have even sold out on May 14 and May 16, while flights to Faro – a two-hour drive from Seville – are as much as £450 from the UK.

The jumps are 10 times as much as they are normally, with flights between £40 and £50 after the match.

So Brits hoping for a last-minute holiday should wait another week- or avoid anywhere near Seville.

And Airbnb prices are being hit by huge spikes too during the final night.

A one-bedroom apartment in the Spanish city, which can host three guests is usually advertised for around £51-per-night.

But on the day of the match, the price has been bumped up by 8000 per cent to an eye-watering £4,212.
