Travelodge keeps 47 hotels open for key workers & vulnerable groups

Travelodge, the UK’s first budget hotel chain, is currently operating 47 of its hotels in critical locations across the UK, providing accommodation for critical workers such as the NHS workforce and vulnerable groups during these unprecedented times.

These Travelodge hotels are located in major cities and towns running from Plymouth to Aberdeen. This includes 20 Travelodge hotels close to major hospitals, including the new Nightingale hospital to support NHS workers. The company is also operating twelve hotels across London.

In addition, the company is supporting around 30 local councils around the country by providing accommodation for the less vulnerable.

Shakila Ahmed, Communications Director, said, 'In these unprecedented times, our hotel teams across the UK are working enormously hard, under great pressure, to support the national efforts.

'We have hotels open from Aberdeen to Plymouth, providing accommodation for critical workers and other groups. This includes 20 hotels close to major hospitals such as our London Excel Travelodge which is our closest hotel to the new Nightingale hospital.”

“We are reviewing daily which hotels are best positioned to support the needs that arise with the government while ensuring we comply with the restrictions in place to protect the public.”

Travelodge, in common with all UK hotel operators has been obliged to temporarily close the majority of its hotels and is currently operating just under 50 hotels in critical locations to support critical workers and local authorities in the fight against COVID-19.
