Value hotels for leisure and business through the UK
Travelodge is one of the UK’s largest budget hotel chains and operates over 450 hotels (over 30,000 rooms) and has over 6,000 members of staff. With eighty-five percent of Travelodge bookings made online, Travelodge became the first hotel brand to join Pennies in 2011, allowing customers the opportunity to add just 50p to their hotel room bookings for charity. By introducing Pennies, Travelodge has given its customers the chance to make a real difference to other people’s lives.
Customers have raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for good causes so far using the digital charity box. For the first two years, customers online micro-donations supported KidsOut and Cancer Research UK; since 2013, donations have been benefiting Macmillan Cancer Support. With thousands of pounds raised every week, these donations are helping people like Kathryn cope with cancer.
