A devastated mum claims she is being forced by her hotel in Tenerife to cough up £1,000 owed to them by Thomas Cook or be booted out on the streets.
Stacey Robinson broke down in tears when staff at the beach resort of Playa de las Américas reportedly informed her she had two hours to stump up the cash.
She was halfway through her holiday with partner Ste and nine month-old daughter, Olivia, when the tour operator collapsed, reports Manchester Evening News.
The 28-year-old from Bolton says she woke up to find a note under the door to her hotel room on Monday morning, telling her to contact reception immediately.
She claims that hotel reception staff handed her a piece of paper with a sum of £1,038 written on it, believed to be owed by Thomas Cook.
Stacey says she was told to pay the sum within two hours, or face being chucked out of their room.
The travel giant went into liquidation after failing to secure a last-minute rescue deal, leaving thousands of holidaymakers stranded abroad.
A major repatriation process is currently underway to ensure all 150,000 Brits stranded abroad can return home.
Stacey says she checked her situation, and is booked onto a return flight with the Civil Aviation Authority on September 30.
But now she faces being kicked out of her hotel a week early if they cant stump up the extra cash, despite having forked out £1,600 for the original holiday.
Speaking from her hotel room, Stacey said: "We went down to reception this morning and it was absolutely manic.
"The receptionist asked if we were Thomas Cook and I said yes - the next thing he handed me a piece of paper with a sum of £1,038.
"He said if we didn't pay the money Thomas Cook owed within two hours we would be thrown out of our room.
"I was in tears as we don't have that kind of money."
Stacey says she has contacted the Civil Aviation Authority, who advised her she was allowed to stay at the hotel, and confirmed they were in contact with several hotels to sort the issue.
"The problem is we have no idea how long that is going to take," she said.
"I have a nine month-old baby so we can't just be waiting around with nowhere to go until our flight back.
"We are just sat waiting in our room because we are scared if we leave we will end up being locked out."
She added: "We have family back home that could book us another place to stay but this is our little girls' first holiday abroad and I don't want to ruin it.
"They are not bothered at reception, there are older couples and other families who are in the same position, it's just a waiting game now."
