Value hotels for leisure and business throughout 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 a few pennies 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, and from 2013 to early 2017, donations benefited Macmillan Cancer Support, helping people like Kathryn cope with cancer. From March 2017, donations are supporting British Heart Foundation, as they fight for every heartbeat.
