At Travelodge, our purpose is to provide affordable travel for everyone, offering our customers the best balance of location, price and quality to suit their travel needs.
Founded in 1985, Travelodge is the second largest hotel brand in the United Kingdom based on number of hotels and number of rooms operated. We leased, franchised and managed 592 hotels and c. 45,000 rooms throughout the United Kingdom, Spain and Ireland at 31 December 2021.
We operate in the midscale and economy (“MS&E”) sector of the hotel market (as defined by STR) and are positioned as a low-cost operator, offering standardised, modern guest rooms at affordable prices to both business and leisure customers. We aim to offer our customers the right balance of location, price and quality for their travel needs.
Travelodge is synonymous with affordable travel and is the best performing brand in the most buoyant sector of the UK hotel market, driven by our long-standing presence, wide geographic network and effective national marketing initiatives.
We are a predominantly UK leasehold business, representing over 98% of our total revenue. In addition we operate ten hotels under management contract in the UK, five leasehold hotels in Spain and ten hotels under franchise in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
We estimate that we attracted approximately 16 million customers in 2021, compared to over 19 million in 2019 pre-pandemic and approximately 90% of our bookings were made through our direct channels, including our own website. As of December 2021, our UK hotels had an average TripAdvisor score of four dots out of five.
In 2021, we employed over 10,000 people across our hotels and support offices, the majority of whom are on hourly paid contracts and worked in our hotels.
Following the record set of results achieved in 2019, following five successive years of revenue and EBITDA growth, Travelodge was significantly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 and 2021 but has recovered strongly. In the year ended 31 December 2021 we generated revenue of £560m (2019: £728m) and an EBITDA profit of £81.1m (2019: profit of £129.1m). We also continued our unrivalled track record of outperformance with 2021 marking our 7th consecutive year of outperformance against the competitive segment.
