BUDGET hotel chain Travelodge is launching a one stop wedding service to brides and grooms sort accommodation for guests.
Couples get a wedding planner and a personalised website which can be sent to guests so they can book rooms directly with a local Travelodge – and prices start from £29 a night.
If more than ten guests book a hotel room then the newlyweds can spend the night as newlyweds for free.
Travelodge has over 563 hotels across the country.
Prices start from £29 a night outside of London – but in the capital they cost upwards of £49 per night.
Room prices vary depending on the time of year, number of rooms being booked and the location of the hotel.
Brits spend £2,151 attending three weddings a year, according to research by Travelodge.
How to find a cheap Travelodge room?
BUDGET hotel Travelodge always boasts about its lowest £29 a night price – but you have to be quick if you want to book one. Here are some top tips for getting a bargain booking:
- Always book direct with Travelodge
- Book early – rooms are available 325 days in advance
- Stay midweek – more £29 rooms are available Sunday to Thursday
- Sign up to the Travelodge newsletter to hear about new offers
Almost half of Brits have also turned down an invite to a big day due to the cost.
Shakila Ahmed, from Travelodge, said:“Nowadays weddings are not just expensive and stressful for the bridal couple but they have become a budget-buster for guests too.
“With the average cost of attending a wedding being £717, which is the cost of a holiday, it’s not surprising, that so many Britons are declining attending their family and friends big day.
“To help ensure brides and grooms are surrounded by their loved ones on their big day, we have launched the one stop wedding service that eliminates the stress and reduces the accommodation cost for wedding guests.”
