Joe McGrath, 21, from Manchester, England had nothing to lose when the nine strangers contacted him online and offered him a free vacation.
With a spot to fill on their vacation to Mallorca, the gang had set out to find a replacement to take their friend Joe McGrath’s space. With the flight booked in Joe’s name, they had to find someone with the same name – and they did.
After discussing the idea with his girlfriend Becky, and his boss Clint, Joe decided to go.
“I was at a gig in town when I first got the message and I just thought it was rubbish but it kept playing in the back of my mind,” Joe said.
“I looked at Dan’s profile and after speaking to him on the phone I realized he was genuine.

“They are such a great bunch of people,” Joe said. “I’m hopefully going back to Bristol again soon and there might be more holidays in future.”
