Travelodge Hotels Launches New Bedshare Service And The Doonas Are Divided

April 1, 2019 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

Travelodge Hotels has just announced Bedshare – an exciting new room share option – that will be rolled out through their Australian and New Zealand hotel properties this April.  The concept has impressed guests so much so, they have been asking, why hasn’t anyone thought of it before?

Bedshare is the hotel industry’s contribution to the booming share economy and promises up to 50 percent discounts for guests willing to share 50 percent of their rooms and amenities with another guest.

The Bedshare feature, first trialled across at Travelodge Hotel Sydney earlier this week, will be rolled out nationwide from 1 April, with hundreds of guests expected to partake over the Easter period alone.

How will Bedshare work?

The concept is refreshingly simple.  The Bedshare option differs from a standard hotel check-in, in that guests can be paired with travellers that are checking in and out at a similar time. And, if they decide to extend their stay, someone else can replace their previous Bedshare buddy in their room.

Travelodge Hotels are known for offering comfortable beds, rooms with modern, well designed interiors and public spaces where guests can feel free to hang about. With Bedshare, as well as sharing a room, meal and all amenities (including towels and toilet paper) team members go to the effort to mark literally everything down the middle, a move which guests are equally happy about.

When requesting the Bedshare option, guests will be given be a price estimate and general details about their room companion. As per other services price increases will apply, dependent on the demand.

A Spokesperson for Travelodge Hotels said that the Bedshare was a strategic move aimed at capitalising on the share economy boom.

“We are about making things refreshingly simple for our hotel guests and if making friends and cutting costs is important, then we are willing to make it happen.

 “We have also received feedback that by using our Bedshare option, businesses are not only cutting costs to their staff travel costs but giving their employees a chance to meet new people on the road.”
