[*]Pay in advance.

[*]Book at least 21 days before day or arrival.[/LIST]

Just got to watch out in case they doublebook your room.. They have something in their T's and C's about being able to send you to ANY travelodge in the country. Was on watchdog a while back.

Are these the people that have been on BBC Watchdog for double booking?

I saw that Watchdog thing. Would be worthwhile to get to the hotel soon after the first available check in especially if the supersaver deal is on. Travelodge have a policy of overbooking and they will send you miles away if all the rooms have been taken, regardless if you booked it or not.

But if you do manage to get in, it's one heck of a deal :w00t:

Yea they sent me somewhere else, I booked into Maypole they sent me to Birmingham central at short notice which was fine as had a great night out there in the end and was well worth £15.

Here's the T+C's for 'overbooking':
[LIST=1]
[*]In the event that a room is unavailable on arrival due to overbooking (please see the "][COLOR=#800080]What is Overbooking?[/COLOR]" question in the General Help section of the Travelodge Help for further information), our staff will attempt to locate suitable alternative local accommodation at no extra charge. Where this is not possible or alternative accommodation is not required, we will cancel the booking. Where the room has been paid for in advance, we will refund the sum paid for the room to the credit/debit card used for payment.[/LIST]and the "What is overbooking?":

Like almost all other hotel companies, we overbook some of our hotels because we know that a percentage of our customers make a reservation but then do not arrive to check-in.
While we are aware that overbooking might sound negative, it allows us to accommodate customers who would otherwise not be able to make a reservation once availability at the hotel has been booked up. In these instances, we calculate the level of overbooking through computer forecasting (based on historical data) to ensure that we can be as accurate as possible. Our aim is to make sure that people who arrive to fulfil their booking are allocated their rooms, while also ensuring that rooms that would have been left empty due to other customers not arriving are also used.

Seems like if you get there and your room is gone, and there is nothing locally, then you are on your own.

First post....HURRAH!

I stayed in one of these before Christmas, booked 4 rooms, no problems, and they were available when I got there.

Having looked at the availability on the site, some lodges appear to have £15 rooms into March as well?

If you're that worried about overbooking (and as mentioned 'every' hotel does it) then simply phone before you leave the house.

I've used this deal about a dozen times and never had a problem or met anyone who had a problem. In fact on two occasions I've had to switch rooms and they had ones spare (broken window latch and a leaky tap respectively).

Always nice and clean, never a problem. About the only thing I can think of to pick at is that the beds are completely random. Sometimes you get a nice solid one but other times you get what feels like a giant bloody marshmallow.

Well, seems handy enough if you get there early I suppose. That overbookling policy isn't the best...

Welcome to the forums Huwbob

thanks for the heads up emma

All hotels overbook, as do all budget airlines (and probably most non budget). I think doctors do as well. They have to take account of the inevitable no shows in order to make their hot deals viable. Except doctors.

I regularly stay in them and have never had a problem; in one near York at the moment

Thanks for the pointer as I can make a few bookings...

thanks for this - might have to see if we can sneak away somewhere for the night...do travelodge rooms just have one double bed? i.e. is there enough room to take the kids along, or do you have to book a bigger room for that?:-(

Does this include breakfast?

do travelodge rooms just have one double bed?



Either a double or two singles; most also have a pull out sofa type bed and generally sleep 3 adults or two adults / 2 children.

Book a family room to be sure.

Does this include breakfast?



No; they usually have somewhere nearby but its better to bring something for the kids along with you and eat elsewhere.

No double room I've ever stayed in has had a sofa type bed, those are family rooms only.

Rooms are Bed, 1 Chair, TV Table/Mirror Nightstand, Two bedside tables and lamps, Bathroom (You'll need to note when you book whether you have a bath/shower or just shower, it says on the room listing), Towels, Minisoap (No shampoo etc), 2 Plastic bathroom cups, Kettle and Tea/Coffee stuff.

Breakfast is generally a pay for extra but isn't a bad deal (most do an all you can eat).

4 of us in a family room for plymouth on feb 10th

(plymouth vs sunderland football match)

room cost £59

IF the room is priced at £15 in this sale, then we are going to cancel our £59 room and book a £15 room instead

Stayed in that one. I presume you are going for some post match refreshments. You are right amongst the nightlife and Plymouth is an awesome night out.

I've stayed using these deals every school holiday for the past 5 years. Never been overbooked, mind you we do check early.

Breakfast is available at some city centre ones. It costs about £6 and is a buffet. Sometimes its good, other times less than satisfactory! Kids under 10 eat free with an adult.

We usually use a nearby supermarket to go for breakfast though. Good quality and very cheap!

aye exactly

will be much cheaper, see what they have available.

if they have a £15 room available on the Friday night, we probably just leave after work on Friday instead and stay 2 nights

NO
just a word of warning if you stay at the Harrogate Travelodge...at the rear is a Wetherspoons and you get woken in the early hours by a bottle collection vehicle that makes an absolute racket...also there is a constant humming noise..not sure if it is an air conditioning unit on one of the other buildings at the rear..and I expect all the £15 rooms are at the rear because of this disturbance.

The fronts not too much better. There's a bar across the road! Harrogate is not one of my favourite lodges.

Hey jacksonsheena

Most rooms have a sofabed to cater for the kids (or partner if their snoring is too close! :giggle: ) but best to make sure they know how many occupants when you book so you get the facility.

Great deal on offer - I too use them regularly and love the marshmallow bed, myself... it's the featherweight duvet with what feels like 200 TOG that does me!

Most rooms do 'not' have a sofabed! You have to specifically book a 'family room' to get a sofa bed, none of the double or singles have them.

The room has a double bed & sofa bed with additional pullout bed - which is fine for 2 adults & 2 kids.

When you are choosing dates, locations etc. there are check boxes for no. of adults/children - if u fill out your requirements it should automatically show search result of family room. Although last time my partner & i stayed ( on the xmas deal!) they gave us a family size room.
