Travlodge, which has 573 hotels across the UK, has been operating 51 of its hotels during the Covid-19 lockdown in critical locations across the UK – providing accommodation for critical/key workers and supporting local authorities during these unprecedented times.
These Travelodge hotels are located in major cities and towns running from Plymouth to Aberdeen and now a further 11 Travelodge hotels are being reopened to support the growing demand by key workers.
These additional 11 hotels will take the total to 62 Travelodge hotels operating across the UK to support key workers and local authorities.
As part of its re-opening hotel programme, Travelodge has taken its key learnings whilst operating in the lockdown and is launching ‘TravelodgeProtect+’, a programme of cleaning and social distancing measures in line with government guidance, designed to keep its customers and teams save and protected post lockdown.
Some measures include, protective reception screens, comprehensive cleaning throughout its hotels using an antiviral disinfectant – effective against coronavirus, all linen and towels thermally disinfected, alongside, contactless payment and check-out.
Travelodge spokeswoman, Shakila Ahmed, said: “In these unprecedented times, our hotel teams across the UK are working enormously hard, under great pressure, to support key workers and the less vulnerable groups.
“We are delighted to reopen a further 11 hotels this week which will assist our 51 hotels that have been operating during the lockdown. In addition, we are also kick-starting our nationwide hotel reopening preparation plans today so that we can start to reopen the rest of our hotels from early July.”
