  • Budget hotel chain Travelodge* has released more than two million rooms for £29 or less per night, for stays between Tue 3 Aug 2021 and 13 Jun 2022 across most of its UK hotels, excluding Northern Ireland. 

    There's no code needed but it'll be trial and error to find 'em given they're spread over a huge date range. The Travelodge price finder* can help by showing all dates, locations and prices in one place, but it helps to be flexible. We'd expect them to get snapped up fairly fast, so go quick if you're after a particular date or area. When we checked on Mon 9 Aug, Travelodge confirmed there were still over two million rooms available at £29 or less.

    What flexibility do I have? 

    The low price point gets you the cheapest 'saver rate' booking option, which is non-refundable if it's your decision to cancel (though if Travelodge cancels on you then you get a full refund). That said, at worst, it's only a £5 fee per booking to make a change as long as you do so by midday on the day of arrival, though you'd pay any difference in price. If you're lucky, there may still be £29 rooms available meaning nothing more to pay, but if not the difference may be relatively large. 

    If your booking is not classed as a 'saver rate' room, but is a 'flexible rate' room instead, you're able to amend or cancel your booking free of charge up until midday on your scheduled arrival date – if you choose to cancel, Travelodge will refund you. 

    Don't assume Travelodge will be the cheapest, even during this offer. Compare prices and see our Hotels Guide to ensure you're getting the best deal.

    • The offer's not available for hotels in Northern Ireland, Ireland or Spain. 

      It's best to pay on card because, in the unlikely event that the company goes bust or another issue arises, you might be able to recoup costs via a chargeback claim from your card provider. See our guide on Visa, Mastercard and Amex chargeback for more information. 

      Saver rate rooms

      It's likely that most of the £29-and-under prices reflect the basic 'saver rate' option, which is non-refundable and incurs a fee if you want to make a change. You can choose to pay extra to upgrade to the 'flexible rate' which is fully refundable and can be amended or cancelled for free up until 12pm on the arrival date. However, we've seen rooms available at the 'flexible rate' for under £29 too.

  • Budget hotel chain Premier Inn* has released two million rooms for £29 per night - there's no code needed and you can book for stays until 14 Oct 21, subject to availability. Premier Inn tells us the discounted rooms span across all its UK hotels, excluding Northern Ireland.

    In most (but not all) cases, the low price point will get you the cheapest 'standard rate' booking option which allows you to amend your booking on a "like-for-like" basis up until 1pm on your arrival day but is usually non-refundable unless you cancel within 24 hours of when you made the booking. Other terms apply for Covid-related circumstances (more on this below).

    The £29 rooms are available to book online or via the Premier Inn app (IOS/Android) across 800+ hotels. Premier Inn told us on Tue 25 May that there were still over 2,000,000 rooms available at the special price. We expect these to get snapped up fairly fast, so go quick if you're after a particular date or area.

    Can I get a refund if I need to cancel?

    If the reason you need to cancel is due to restrictions from leaving your area, then it's still worth asking for a full refund if you want one as Premier Inn says it'll assess on a "case-by-case basis" (see Premier Inn's coronavirus page* for more info).

    If you need to cancel for any other reason, then in the worst case scenario you can change your dates for free up until 1pm on the day of arrival but you'd need to pay any difference in the price of the room. 

    All Premier Inn hotels reopened from 17 May but it's worth noting England, Scotland and Wales have different restrictions in place so check these using the links in our Life-in-lockdown guide before booking, and bear in mind that plans could change.

    Don't assume Premier Inn will be the cheapest, even during this offer. Compare prices and see our Hotels Guide to ensure you're getting the best deal.

    MSE Jules says:

    When we checked Premier Inn on Tue 18 May, we found a few rooms at various different locations for £29 including Birmingham Intl, Market Harborough, Preston and Southampton. However, if you're planning on staying in popular UK holiday destinations such as Blackpool, Brighton and Devon, we've found most rooms start from £30. 

    MSE Becky found a nifty way of filtering the search to find rooms available for £29, which could be good if you're flexible with the location and have a particular date in mind. If you go online to Premier Inn* and type 'England' into the search bar, select the dates you want, click 'Search' and then filter by price, you'll be shown the cheaper hotels first.

      As there'll be limitations in place and you'll need to think about whether you feel safe sharing a space with other guests, it's worth considering if staying in a hotel is the best option – you may prefer to book a holiday rental instead, for instance.

      Standard rate rooms

      It's likely that most of the £29 prices reflect the basic 'standard' option, which is non-refundable unless you cancel within 24 hours of when you made the booking but does allow you to amend your booking on a "like-for-like" basis up until 1pm on your arrival day. You can choose to pay extra to upgrade to the 'flex' rate which is fully refundable and can be amended or cancelled for free up until 1pm on the arrival date.

  • Budget hotel chain Travelodge* has released more than two million rooms for £29 or less per night, for stays between Mon 17 May 2021 and 14 Mar 2022, but it'll be trial and error to find 'em. There's no code needed and you can make your booking from now right up until 14 Mar 2022, subject to availability. Travelodge tells us the discounted rooms span across all its UK hotels, excluding Northern Ireland. In most (but not all) cases, the low price point will get you the cheapest 'saver rate' booking option, which is usually non-refundable, except in certain Covid-related circumstances (more on this below).

    The £29 rooms are available online across various dates – the Travelodge price finder* can help by showing all dates, locations and prices in one place, but it helps to be flexible. Travelodge told us on Mon 24 May that there were still over 2,000,000 rooms available at the special price. We'd expect them to get snapped up fairly fast, so go quick if you're after a particular date or area.

    Can I get a refund if I need to cancel?

    Travelodge tells us that if Government restrictions mean people are not allowed to stay in the area where the hotel you've booked is located, then it'll offer a refund or a voucher worth 125% of the value to rebook.

    If you need to cancel for any other reason, then in the worst case scenario you can change your dates for free up until midday on the day of arrival but you'd need to pay any difference in the price of the room. There's normally a £5 per booking charge to move 'saver rate' bookings (which many of the rooms in the £29 deal are classed as) but it's being waived for now.

    Yet if the reason is you're prevented by restrictions from leaving your area, then it's still worth asking for a full refund if you want one as Travelodge says it'll assess on a "case-by-case basis" (see Travelodge's coronavirus page* for more info).

    On Mon 17 May, all Travelodge hotels reopened (see full list*). Remember that England, Scotland and Wales have different restrictions in place so check these using the links in our Life-in-lockdown guide before booking, and bear in mind that plans could change.

       If Travelodge has to cancel your booking and you opt for the 125% voucher, it can be used up until the end of the year.

      Saver rate rooms

      It's likely that most of the £29-and-under prices reflect the basic 'saver rate' option, which is non-refundable and normally incurs a fee if you want to make a change (though this is currently being waived). You can choose to pay extra to upgrade to the 'flexible rate' which is fully refundable and can be amended or cancelled for free up until 12pm on the arrival date. However, we've seen rooms available at the 'flexible rate' for under £29 too.
