A new bride has spoken of her “absolute nightmare” after her honeymoon plans were thrown in chaos when Lowcostholidays went into administration.
Joanna Tully and fiance Craig Liddle tied the knot on Saturday (23 July) and were looking forward to staying in a luxury five star hotel in Italy just a few days later.
However, devastatingly, the couple were told just THREE DAYS before the wedding that the four-night star, costing £960, had been cancelled by Lowcostholidays.
Not only had the couple, from Leeds, West Yorks., lost the cash, but the hotel also told them they would have to pay again at that the price had rocketed to £1,290.
The pair have now had to book into a cheaper hotel in the coastal town of Sorrento in order to rescue their plans.
Miss Tully, 37, and her now husband Mr Liddle, 38, flew to Naples on Monday (15 July).
Miss Tully said: “We booked the flight directly with the airline so that still stands but we have lost £960 for the hotel.
“I just feel like the hotel have been really greedy. I can almost understand why we have to pay for the hotel again but I’m angry that they have decided to put the price up by £400.
“It’s been an absolute nightmare and one of those things we could have done without.”
The newly married couple are among thousands of travellers whose plans have been wrecked when holiday booking company, Lowcost Travelgroup, went into administration last week.
The company said uncertainty ahead of the EU referendum and the fall in the pound were blamed for its demise.
