THOMAS Cook have been forced to close travel applications for the Champions League final because there are too many fans scrambling to book last-minute flights.
The sports division of the company warned that applications would close by 5pm today due to a high demand.
Thomas Cook Sport is currently offering non-stop charter flights to Madrid for £559 to supporters who have bought a match ticket.
It includes return flights from London Stansted or Liverpool to Madrid and airport transfers to the stadium.
The trip does not include accommodation, and involves departing from the airport on the morning of the game and flying home at around 8.30am the following day.
Fans trying to access the offer are currently taken to a page with a five minute queue time due to the demand.
The Tottenham website said: "Due to the large number of travel applications received for the UEFA Champions League Final, Thomas Cook Sport will be closing applications at 5pm today (Tuesday 14 May).
"Please be aware that there will be no further opportunities to make an application once this deadline has passed.
"Therefore, if you have not made a travel application with Thomas Cook Sport by this time, you will not be considered for their travel package.
"All applications made with Thomas Cook Sport are subject to availability."
Brits who want to try and get in will need to have their passport details and THFC Membership Number used to buy their match ticket.
Brits looking for a much cheaper option should opt for a holiday package deal to Spain a few hours from Madrid.
A number of bargain breaks can be found along the coast for under £300 per person, including flights and hotel accommodation, and are just a short train ride from Madrid.
The Championship League final is also much easier to get to than the Europa League final – Chelsea and Arsenal fans will have to travel 2,500 miles to Baku, Azerbaijan, to see the final there.
Sun Online Travel has contacted Thomas Cook for comment.
