Question Why so expensive? Ridiculous pricing on Holiday Finder

Not sure if this is a bug, intentional, or I'm missing something obvious...

4 nights in Copenhagen in January, Club flights return, for two people... 250k per person.

That's the price to charter the plane maybe?

There is a 60k difference for each additional night- maybe it books the whole hotel?

At least it comes with a continental breakfast...

Arrow

Looks like someone had entered the room rate of 999999 DKK/night to signal a stop-sale to human agents (which converts to ~120000 GBP).

BA are probably envisioning a steep decline in Sterling after a no deal brexit

Found another one... Not quite so expensive, but still a bit out of budget for me.

I read a story over the weekend about a hotel in Cornwall which is "charging" 1,500/night (it is not a fancy hotel) because it is full but there is a glitch in the system with one of the online travel agencies which persists in showing rooms available despite their repeated complaints. Therefore to put people off booking they have made the price stupidly high. The owner was quoted as saying that if anyone did want to pay that much they could stay in his house. Maybe the same here?

This. A friend's sister runs a hotel in Biarritz and had to put up the price to EUR10k pn to stop people booking (normally EUR200). They had changed the price to EUR1k and had people either trying to book or phoning to remonstrate that they were price-gouging due to coronavirus.
