Adrian and Gillian Bayford, who won £148 million on the Euromillions, flew off on holiday on an easyJet flight
Euromillions winners Adrian and Gillian Bayford opted to jet off on their first ever foreign holiday on budget airline easyJet - despite having enough money to own their own private jet.
The couple, who scooped a £148 million jackpot, took their two children and joined hundreds of other passengers on the flight from Stansted Airport.
The family are believed to have paid between £100 to £130 for their seats for the flight to the undisclosed location, and at such a cheap price they were certainly able to afford comprehensive
Before this the family's most recent holiday was last summer, when they spent a week in a caravan in Cornwall.
Although Mr Bayford's business partner Richard Hudspith refused to reveal the final holiday destination, he told the Daily Telegraph the family flew on an easyJet flight to have some time together.
He added: "You could say that it is a sunshine holiday somewhere in Europe."
Under data protection rules a spokesman could not confirm whether the family had used the airline to go on holiday.
But he said: "EasyJet is the smart choice for millionaires. You don't have to be a millionaire to fly easyJet but it helps you remain one."
