Travelodge logoTravelodge 20% off London weekend stays*Online code for one and two-night stays

Nov-Jan stays

Enter the code LONDON20 online at  Travelodge*  and you’ll get 20% off a one or two-night weekend stay at 36 Travelodge hotels in London (see ‘more info’ below for full list). It’s valid for stays of up to two consecutive nights starting on a Friday or Saturday from Fri 6 Nov to Sun 31 Jan 2016 when you pay online in advance.

You'll need to go quick and book now if you want to nab a discounted room, as the deal will end at 11.59pm on Sun 11 Oct, or when all 3,000 codes are used, whichever’s sooner.

The code can be used on both 'Saver' rooms (the cheapest available) and more expensive 'Flexible' rooms (which allow you to cancel or amend your booking). It's limited to one discount code per booking.

Travelodge says there are no excluded dates and you'll be able to use the code on all available rooms. You'll be notified during the booking process if your chosen hotel has no rooms available on the dates you're looking at.

Before booking, make sure you compare prices and see our Hotels Guide to check it's a good deal.

Premier Inn logoPremier Inn £35 rooms*200,000 available across 500+ UK hotels, excl London

Oct-Dec stays

Discount hotel chain Premier Inn* has about 200,000 rooms outside of London available for £35 a night for stays until Fri 11 Dec - but you must book at least 21 days in advance.

This isn't really a sale, it's a promotion which highlights Premier Inn's cheapest hotels with its normal 'Premier Saver' rate. So while £35 room prices aren't unusual, there are certain times of the year when Premier Inn makes larger volumes of its rooms available at this price as in this case.

The 'Premier Saver' rate means you must pay upfront and you can't get a refund or make any changes once booked. Plus these are room-only bookings, so you don't get any extras such as breakfast.

There are no excluded dates but the 200,000 rooms are spread across the promotional window at more than 500 of approximately 640 Premier Inn hotels located outside of London, so you may have to root around a bit to find the cheap rooms. See the full T&Cs*.

Discounts we found

It's also worth noting that £35 rooms aren't always the cheapest - we found rooms from £29 in some central city spots. Cheap rooms we found include:

  • Leeds City Centre - £29 on Sun 11 Oct
  • Birmingham City Centre (Waterloo Street) - £35 on Fri 30 Oct
  • Southampton City Centre - £35 on Fri 6 Nov
  • Edinburgh City Centre (Haymarket) - £35 on Fri 4 Dec

Want to stay in London?

If you're looking to stay at one of Premier Inn's 60 London hotels, rooms tend to be available from £49 in outer London locations such as Wimbledon and Harrow, or from £69 in central London locations such as Aldgate and Kensington. However, if you search around and are flexible on stay days, you may find cheaper rooms. Cheap London rooms we found include:
  • London Blackfriars (Fleet Street) - £49 on Sun 29 Nov
  • London Bank (Tower) - £59 on Fri 20 Nov
  • London City (Aldgate) - £69 on Fri 20 Nov
  • London Holborn - £69 on Sun 22 Nov

Even if the room you find looks like a great price, do a comparison on Trivago* and TravelSupermarket* to check if hotel brokers are offering cheaper stays at other hotels in your chosen location. Read our Cheap Hotels guide for lots of price-cutting techniques.

MSE Tom says:

There's no maximum length of stay requirement, but you're less likely to find the cheapest rooms available on consecutive nights in city centre locations, so you might want to look a bit further afield if you're planning on staying for multiple nights.

use the money mantras

Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!

Skint? ask:
  • Do I need it?
  • Can I afford it?
not skint? ask:
  • Will I use it?
  • Is it worth it?
Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
