If you need a hotel room and don’t want to pay top dollar, you can stay at a Travelodge and pay just £17-£19 with this clever deal-stacking trick.
Of course, Travelodge is known for its cheap rooms, and paying less than £30 per night isn’t uncommon – but at the moment you can go one better by combining its cheapest rooms with a free £10 Amazon voucher, effectively bringing the price down to £19. Plus there’s an extra 5% off deal for Travelodges in London, meaning it’s possible to bag a London room for only £17.55.
Here’s how to do it:
Step 1. Find a £29 Travelodge room
Rooms booked via the Travelodge* website start from £29. Sometimes finding these cheapest rooms is tricky, but there seemed to be lots available when I did a quick search on Wed 11 Apr.
Here’s one I found at my local Travelodge in Romford. I also spotted £29 rooms in Sidcup, Kent and Cardiff, though I didn’t check everywhere – there are likely many more.
It’s worth me pointing out that even if you can’t find a £29 room for the location or dates you need, you can still do steps 2 and 3 (it just won’t be as cheap as £17-£19).
Step 2: Get a free £10 Amazon voucher for booking via VoucherCodes
Once you’ve found your cheap room, go to VoucherCodes*, where you can get a free £10 Amazon voucher after making a room booking through its ‘Get Reward’ link.
IMPORTANT: This will only work if you click through to Travelodge’s website from the VoucherCodes button (pictured below).
Once you’ve booked the room, VoucherCodes says you’ll receive the voucher in your online account within 30 days. You should receive an email when it’s available.
The deal’s only valid until Mon 23 Apr and can only be used once per person per booking. Though if a couple of you are booking two nights, you could separately book one night each to max the savings. There are 1,000 vouchers available, but VoucherCodes told us it’s unlikely the offer will not run out.
But assuming you’d spend £10 at Amazon anyway, and you managed to bag a £29 room, this effectively brings your hotel costs down to £19 per night.
Step 3: Get 5% off London rooms via VoucherCodes
While you’re on the VoucherCodes* website, you may notice there’s a code to get an extra 5% off Travelodge rooms at 72 locations in and around London – simply grab the code* and enter it at the checkout.
If you can find a valid room for £29 (like I did at Romford and Sidcup), you can stack the two together, along with the £10 Amazon voucher deal, to bring your out-of-pocket expense down to £17.55.
It won’t work for everyone, but I reckon it’s worth a shot as you’d be hard pressed to find a hotel room for less than this after stacking these deals. Let me know if you manage to do it!
