The Scots student bought the £99 Wowcher Mystery Holiday but claims she was told the bags she was taking could be taken as a carry on.

But when they got to the gate, they were told the bags would have to be placed in the aircraft’s hold.

In the clip uploaded to the social media site, she told her 54,000 followers: “In the UK you can get this thing called the Wowcher £99 mystery deal where you pay £99 each and you get a whole holiday, flights and hotel, for £99.

“The catch is you just don’t know where you are going.

“And she told us that our bags were included in the airfare because they were just cabin bags and not hold bags or anything, they weren’t suitcases.

“She was wrong.

“We got all the way to the gate at the airport and just as we are boarding the woman at RyanAir says ‘look, you’ve got to put these bags in the hold.’

“We were a bit annoyed because we had to pay extra money that we didn’t know about and they put the bags in the hold.

“But that is not why the plane was delayed.”

When her and her pal got to the seat she realised that she had left one CRUCIAL item in her bag.

She continued: “We take our seats and my pal turns to me and asks ‘oh do you have your passport?’

“My passport was in the bag that they put in the hold.

“And you can’t get through customs without your passport.

“So I had to go to the pilot and the pilot had to call the ground crew, the ground crew had to bring my bag out from the hold they just put it into.

“And then I had to rummage through my bag in front of everyone on the plane.

“And then they had to repack the hold with my bag in it.

“I was the most hated person on that flight.”

The TikTok user then revealed despite the delay, they got to enjoy their mystery holiday to Turin in Italy.

The clip has been liked over 19,000 times as followers reacted to the tale.

One said: “Oh no, I would cry.”

Another replied: “I’d have to pass away.”

Some shared their own similar experiences where the same thing ended up happening to them.

One person wrote: “Happened to me flying krakow to Edinburgh, didn’t click till we landed. They had to send staff looking for my case once it was unloaded”.

A second replied: “Nooo I did this and only realised when I lanced in Barcelona, held up the whole school trip.”
