THE CHANCE of a last-minute free hotel stay in the Costa Del Sol is being dished out after one Bicester man's travel buddy was forced to cancel.

Chris Archer took to social media to offer out the 5* hotel stay to find someone to join him travelling after a friend dropped out.

The 29-year-old said the accommodation was non-refundable and his friend was willing to give up his paid share for someone else to join Mr Archer.

The Bicester resident wrote on Facebook about preferring not to travel alone and was offering out a five night stay in Malaga and Marbella.

Mr Archer jetted off alone to Malaga yesterday, but confirmed the free accommodation to join him in Marbella is still available and said it would just be flights to pay for anyone that joined him.

The advert, listed on selling site Gumtree, said: "After a non-refundable holiday cancellation there's room for someone to join me and take advantage of already paid accommodation in Malaga and Marbella.

"Now a case of sourcing own flights."

The advert includes descriptions of the Amare Hotel where the pair would stay in Marbella for three nights from tomorrow.

It continues to say Mr Archer is 29, local to Bicester, and has no expectations from the trip just would 'rather not go solo'.

Mr Archer said he was curious to see if anyone would step in, otherwise the holiday place would go to waste.
