    SO-CALLED bargain flights can rapidly rise in cost with airline add-on fees.

    But it’s apparently cheaper to take a BUTLER with you than check in your baggage.

    Research by WhichAirline.com shows it can cost less to buy an extra ticket for your man-servant (if you’re lucky enough to have one) to carry your bags on the flight.

    A Ryanair flight from Stansted to Maastricht, Holland costs £9.99 each way — but checking-in a normal-sized (15kg) bag costs £15 each way.

    So, buying two return tickets and using your butler’s hand luggage allowance — he clearly won’t be taking his own stuff — can save a staggering 20 per cent.

    We sent our man LEE PRICE and his butler, Timothy Brown, 29, from Ashford, Kent, to see if the plane-ly daft idea worked. He says:

    “Walking through an airport I’m normally constantly checking I’ve still got my passport in my pocket and dragging my suitcase around with me.

    So it feels more than a little strange having Tim walking slightly behind me with an almost deferential demeanour.
