Get a Travelodge room for £35 or less

With over 580 hotel locations throughout the UK, including in major cities and near popular airports, Travelodge is a great option for those travelling on a budget. And up until December 25, 2024, there are even more savings to be had on select stays.

Last year, the budget hotel chain released “thousands” of rooms for £35 or less. But, the clock is running out to make the most of this deal, with it coming to an end next month. If you manage to snap up a £35 room, this could result in a stay for as little as £17 per person based on two people sharing a room.

This means that a family of four making the most of the deal, the saying as “cheap as chips” really does come to mind. According to Travelodge data, a £35 Travelodge room shared between a family of four, works out at just £9.50 per person “which is cheaper than a portion of fish and chips and a can of pop” or a “trip to the cinema”. 

Early birds have the opportunity to lock in the price of their stay now for a holiday later in the year, with the deal lasting for almost one whole year.

Guests can indulge in this wide-ranging breakfast option for just £9.75. And for families, the savings go even further! Up to two children aged 15 or under can eat free for every paying adult they are staying with. Just make sure you add your unlimited breakfast to your booking during checkout.

Top tips for finding a room under £35

Booking your trip in advance is one of the best ways to secure the best prices, with Travelodge allowing customers the opportunity to book up to 325 days in advance. However, there are some other methods Travelodge recommends for those hoping to bag some incredible savings.

Stay midweek

According to Travelodge, the cheapest rooms are typically available between Sunday and Thursday, as Fridays and Saturdays are some of their busiest times. Although £35 and under rooms are available on weekends, due to the demand, these are likely to be snapped up quickly.

Your location

Cheap rooms ultimately depend on the popularity of the destination. In London, for example, rooms start at £49. However, given the hundreds of destinations to choose from, searching around could be the key to bagging a bargain.

Always book direct

While price comparison sites are a great way to see what offers are out there, Travelodge urges customers to book direct if they want the best deals.
