A 12-year-old stole his mum’s credit card, booked a flight to Bali and spent four days living a life of luxury after getting into a fight with his parents.
The boy, who has not been named, booked the cheap flight to Indonesia after the heated argument with his parents. Before booking, he did extensive research on which airline would allow him to travel by himself without a written and signed letter from his parents.
He managed to find a ‘cheap deal’ to Indonesia and booked the flight on a school day, 9news reports.
The boy then tricked his Nan into handing over his passport, packed his bag, grabbed his scooter and then headed to the airport by train to go on his solo adventure.
At the airport, the boy used the self-service checkout and boarded a connecting flight from Sydney to Perth, and then another to Denpasar. The boy said he was shocked no one at Perth International Airport asked him why he was alone.
‘They just asked for my student ID and passport to prove that I’m over 12 and that I’m in secondary school,’ he told A Current Affair.
By the time his parents had reported him missing when he didn’t show up for school, he was already living the luxury life. at the four-star All Seasons Hotel. His mum Emma, a mother-of-two, said that she was ‘shocked, disgusted there is no emotion to explain how we felt when we found he had left for overseas.’ The boy said: ‘It was great because I wanted to go on an adventure.’
