Travelpod from Travelodge


Travelodge have unveiled a rather nice looking shedlike atmosphere which they're calling the Travelpod - they claim is the world's first mobile hotel room. They describe it as "a mobile bedroom or 'Travelpod' to ensure you have a dry, comfortable night's sleep outdoors". It comes with all the necessaries - double bed, lights, duvet, pillow, carpet, window blinds, dressing table, mirror, chair, flat screen television, DVD player (and DVDS), heater, tea/coffee making things, and green toilet. All for £26 a night. It all comes wrapped up in a clear poly-carbonate glass box 6m by 2.4m. And you can enter a competition to win a free stay in one too at the web site. The Travelpod has been trialled over the last year and Travelodge are expecting it to become popular at festivals and outdoor events. Below is how an early version looked when pictures were released last year.

Wayne Munnelly, Travelodge's Director of Sleep said: "It is a great concept where guests can enjoy the festival, dance through the night and climb in to a nice comfy bed. Not everyone who goes to a concert wants to sleep in a tent - this is the ultimate budget fun alternative."
