Travelodge Discount Codes

Why pay extortionate prices for a hotel, when you don’t have to? Travelodge has a variety of rooms all across the UK & beyond, providing comfort that doesn’t break the bank. As if this wasn’t enough, use the Travelodge discount codes above to save even more!

American businessman, Scott King, established the first Travelodge in San Diego, California, in 1940. In the early 1970s, the Travelodge brand was purchased by Italian-Scottish hotelier Charles Forte. Travelodge was born to humble origins as a small boutique hotel brand with only one hotel. The hotel was located by the side of the main road in Barton-under-Needwood in Staffordshire.

Originally, Travelodge hotels were, in fact, former Excelsior Motor Lodges. Excelsior was a brand owned by Charles Forte, and their hotels were built next to motorways for weary travellers to rest during long journeys. They were also frequently attached to Little Chef restaurants, making them the perfect road-trip pick-me-up combination of a warm meal and a comfy bed.

Since its early days, Travelodge has grown into one of the UK’s largest budget-friendly hotel brands, operating over 590 hotels and more than forty thousand guest bedrooms. It has also built more and more of its hotels in cities, and not just on major roads. Rather than keeping this large number of hotels solely in Barton-under-Needwood, Travelodge has expanded across the UK, as well as into Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and even Spain.

In 1995, Forte’s ownership of Travelodge ended, and ownership transferred to Granada, a British television group based out of Manchester. It was Granada who came up with the idea to build hotels away from major roads, elevating Travelodge from its motor lodge beginnings and helping to forge the hotel brand that we know today. Granada merged with Compass Group in 2001, and still maintained their ownership of Travelodge under the new name.

In 2003, both Travelodge and Little Chef too, were sold to global investment firm Permira, who moved the headquarters from Bedfordshire to Oxfordshire. In 2004, Travelodge purchased the ‘Moat House’ on Drury Lane, as well as the sites that became their Farringdon and Islington hotels, which you can visit today.

In 2006 Travelodge came under the wing of Dubai International Capital, an Emirati investment group. In 2010, Travelodge expanded their reach, absorbing fifty-two Innkeeper’s Lodge sites around the mainland UK.

Travelodge were with Dubai International Capital until 2012 when ownership passed to a triumvirate of GoldenTree Asset Management, Avenue Capital Group, and Goldman Sachs, who have kept it to this day.

What kinds of rooms do Travelodge have?

Travelodge has three types of rooms: Standard, SuperRoom, and Travelodge Plus. Here’s a brief run-down of each one, so you can make the best choice for your trip and budget (remember to use your Travelodge Offer Code, regardless of your choice of room):

Standard: The usual room to lay your head down in upon booking a Travelodge room. Double and family rooms come with a king-size bed, a comfy duvet and four freshly fluffed pillows. Standard rooms come with an en-suite shower, a spacious desk, and a Freeview-enabled TV. All standard rooms include Wi-Fi. Each room has a phone charging slot right next to the bed, so whether you’re sleeping or relaxing, you’ll never be far from your phone.

For those travelling with children, or adults sharing an overnight trip, Standard rooms come with two pull out beds to accommodate an extra visitor or two.

Single rooms come with a single bed, instead of a king-size, but all of the other features remain the same. All mattresses across Travelodge’s range of rooms are made by Sleepezee, the company that holds the royal patent for mattress-making, so you know that you’ll get a good night’s sleep with Travelodge.

SuperRoom: Is extra comfort more your thing? Travelodge’s new SuperRooms have all that you could need. Take the features of a Standard room, and dial up the luxury. SuperRooms feature a Lavazza A Modo Mio espresso machine, Hansgrohe Radiance 3jet shower, and your choice of firm or hypoallergenic pillows for your added comfort. Combine that with blackout curtains and a Samsung TV and you’ve got your perfect cosy evening & morning coffee. An iron and ironing board allows you to freshen up your wardrobe mid-trip, so you’ll always be looking your best.

SuperRooms offer what Travelodge calls ‘Premium Economy’ option: everything a Standard room has, plus extras, but without a luxury price tag. (Hint: book a Super Room in advance, and use your Travelodge Discount Codes to get a luxury stay at a budget price)

SuperRooms occupy their own floor in a Travelodge, and are not yet available in every hotel. Most major cities have them, but it’s still advisable to check on the Travelodge website when booking, to see if your hotel has a SuperRoom. (If you have the opportunity to check them out, don’t pass it up, it could become your new favourite.)

Travelodge Plus: Not just a type of room, but a new breed of Travelodge hotels, Travelodge Plus has Standard rooms and SuperRooms in abundance, with all their amenities available, plus a few more. USB charging sockets, armchairs and more powerful hairdryers round out the SuperRooms already extensive features, while the hotel itself comes with its own Cafe-Bar area, serving unlimited breakfasts in the morning, hot dinners in the evening, and fresh coffee all day long.

Travelodge Plus hotels are a new addition to the Travelodge family, and so aren’t available everywhere quite yet. They can be found in most large cities, including London, Edinburgh, Portsmouth, Gatwick and Brighton. If you’re holidaying in any of these places, check the Travelodge website to see if your hotel is Travelodge Plus…it might just be the cherry on top that you need.

Travelodge will be adding more Travelodge Plus hotels as time goes on, so remember to check regularly, you never know what you might…and what it can do for your trip.

Please be aware that pets are not allowed in the cafe or bars at any time, and cannot be left unattended in the hotel rooms. It’s best to keep your pet with you if they’re joining you on your trip.

Travelodge beds are so comfortable and well-received, that they are available commercially, via Sleepeezee. Royal comfort for your home.

Applying your Travelodge Discount Codes

Applying your Travelodge Discount Codes when booking your room is a simple process; and it stays the same, whether you book via phone, tablet or mobile:

  • Step 1: Choose your destination, date, and length of your stay.
  • Step 2: Travelodge will show you the hotels that they have in the area and for what prices. Pick the best hotel to suit you. Tip: Remember to check if your room is in a TravelodgePLUS hotel, for added amenities. Also don’t forget to check whether your room is a Saver or Flexible rate room, as one gives you more freedom than the other if you need to amend anything after you’ve booked (that will be discussed in detail later).
  • Step 3; At the booking screen, select the extras that you would like. Travelodge offers A breakfast to go, Faster Wi-Fi, Early Check-In, Late Check-Out or Pets. Each extra carries its own charge (Service Dogs are except, however).
  • Step 4: You’ll be shown the checkout screen, with a breakdown of the cost of your trip, and any extras you’ve added on. On the right-hand side is a box that says ‘Discount Code’. Enter your code and select ‘Apply’.
  • Step 5: Complete your, now reduced, booking and receive confirmation via email.
  • Step 6: Start packing and get ready to enjoy your holiday!

How do you pay for your Travelodge room?

Travelodge accepts all major credit and debit cards, including VISA, Mastercard and American Express. If you would rather not use your card, Travelodge does accept PayPal. In part due to the nature of the business, they do not accept Klarna, ClearPay or any buy-now-pay-later methods. If you want the affordable comfort of Travelodge, you can’t split the cost. What you can do, however, is use your Travelodge Voucher Codes, found above, to reduce the cost and keep both you and your wallet happy and comfortable.

Sometimes you might need to change or cancel your booking for whatever reason. If the unthinkable should happen, Travelodge have you covered. If your booking is a Flexible Rate booking, you can get a partial or full refund on the room, provided you have not already checked in, and you’re notifying before either check-in time or midday on your Check-In Day. You can cancel or amend your booking online, via Travelodge’s Manage Booking portal, or by calling Travelodge’s Central Reservations team, if that’s your preference.

If you do have to cancel a Flexible Rate room, you will be refunded the cost of the room and any food or drink extras that you have booked. You can expect the refund in your account within ten days of the last day of your original booking.

If your room is a Saver Rate room, you are not eligible for a refund, although you are able to cancel your booking. So, please double check your room, to see if you’re eligible or not.
Using a Travelodge Voucher Code on a Flexible Rate room will not affect your eligibility for a refund.

If you’re looking to amend a booking, there are some things to be aware of.

If you have a Flexible Rate room, you can amend:

  • The Check-In & Check-Out dates
  • The Number of Guests
  • Your Room Type (Single, King, SuperRoom etc)
  • Any extra items (paid for as part of your booking)

If your new room is cheaper than your original booking, Travelodge will refund you the difference (subject to the same ten-day clearing period as stated earlier).

Saver Rate rooms are still amendable, allowing you to change the dates, number of guests, and room type should you need to. Any change to a Saver Rate booking will incur a £10 amendment fee per change, payable any time you change a booking.

Once again, if you have used a Travelodge Discount or Voucher Code (and why wouldn’t you?) you can still amend your booking. Having used a Travelodge Offer Code will not affect your eligibility to amend your accommodation.

Travelodge may offer you eVouchers from time to time. These can be added to your online MyTravelodge account and used when making bookings. These can be combined with your Travelodge Voucher Codes to keep your trip budget-friendly, so make sure you check your MyTravelodge account regularly… you might never know when you can use an eVoucher you’d once forgotten about.

Does Travelodge offer subscriptions or student discounts?

Travelodge do have their mailing list, which you can join for free. Travelodge will regularly send you updates and news about Travelodge… as well as a selection of deals and Travelodge Promos to spark a spontaneous trip, or to make one you’ve already been planning a little bit cheaper. These can be used in conjunction with the Travelodge Voucher Codes you can find above to make your trip even more cost-effective and leave more money for souvenirs, nights out and attractions.

Travelodge will send you emails specifically concerning their deals, so watch your inbox and your junk folder so you never miss a good, last-minute deal.

Travelodge does not accept gift cards. Instead, they offer a variety of deals year-round and accept Travelodge Voucher Codes when taking your booking, so you won’t be at a disadvantage from the lack of a gift card.

Travelodge does offer a 5% discount for students, provided you have an account with Student Beans. If you are a student and don’t yet have an account with them, you can sign up for one online. It will take less than ten minutes, and you’ll have an additional 5% off of your already (thanks to Travelodge Discount Codes) discounted trip. Whether it’s a brief break, a return home, or a reading week excursion, students pass up this deal at their own peril.
