Hi,

I'm looking to book the Travelodge for a couple nights - currently sitting at £24.99 if I go for the saver rate (no cancellation/refunds).

I was thinking to go for the 'flexible rate' that allows me to cancel with a full refund, then re-book it under the saver rate closer to the date (just incase covid strikes etc).

Does anyone know when Travelodge tend to ramp up their room prices? How many days prior to the arrival date?

Thanks!

    It is not date driven but demand related. If enough rooms sell at the non refundable rate, price will go up immediately. And if bookings are a problem, or there are too many cancellations, it may even drop closer to the stay date. Also, if there are any events in the area, that too will influence the rate.

    How sure are you that you’ll be able to book it again at the same saver rate “closer to the date”?

    What is the price difference? I found a £24 room in December, flexible rate was £28, worth the £4 with all the uncertainty.

    If you need it and it's a good price, just book it.

    What’s the flexible rate? When it says full refund is that a refund of everything you paid or is it a refund of the room price only minus any additional flexible rate fee if that makes sense?

    If the later there would be no benefit of cancelling and rebooking anyhow would there ?

    Would love to, but the government change their travel restrictions at the flip of a coin. Also can't guarantee I won't get covid between now & then

    Then just book the Flexible rate that you can cancel for a full refund if need be. I’m not sure what else there even is to say.

    Booked a bunch of Travelodge flexible rooms last year as lockdown rules were being relaxed. Also joined National Trust - All combined to make a mini 'Travelodge tour'. Really good.
    The flexibility allowed us to do a literal raincheck right up to the day of booking and good rates by booking well in advance
