We are delighted that, having looked at our credentials and the work we deliver for our clients, Travelodge has entrusted this major undertaking to us and charged us as the guardians of their enormously important customer gateway. It's a role we will undertake with care and one which will allow us to develop their site both functionally and aesthetically to realise their online ambitions."
