Graeme Brett, the owner of Westoe Travel, said one hotel, which he did not want to name, tried to charge £985 to rebook a three-night stay that had originally cost £435.

Other hotel brands have been praised for honoring the original rates, including Best Western. A spokesperson said: “We have been encouraging hotels to get in touch with Super Break customers to try and minimize any further disruption.”
