How to Book Premier Inn Hotels for £11.08 Per Night!

Some links to products and partners on this website will earn an affiliate commission.

Insideflyer’s good friend across the pond, Gary Leff at View From The Wing, recently wrote about a new hotel booking site – ‘Wayfarer Points’. It’s a members only site (you can join for free though), that claims to offer discounts of up to 50%, or even 70% if you pay for a Premium membership.

I’m normally quite sceptical about those sort of claims, but I thought I would have a quick look anyway – and I’m very glad I did!

I have no idea how frequently you’ll find decent discounts in general (indeed some examples I looked at were more expensive than other booking sites), but I did discover one very interesting common trend: Premier Inn hotels in the UK are often heavily discounted. 

When I say heavily discounted, I mean city centre hotels on Saturday nights for as little as £11.08:

Or, hotels in central London for £26.58:

If you are happy to be a bit further out of the centre, you can even find options in London from £11.08 on some dates: 

Good deal?


You can sometimes book Premier Inn hotels for a touch under £30 direct, but through Wayfarer Points you can book those same rooms for as little as £11.08.

Until last year I had never stayed at a Premier Inn (I think the lack of loyalty programme put me off), but I’m a definite convert these days. If the price is right, Premier Inns can be tough to beat – and by booking through Wayfarer, the price is definitely right!

One thing to watch out for, is that to bring up all the Premier Inn options on Wayfarer, it seems you need to search for 2 adults.

Bottom line

You can sign up to Wayfarer Points for free, or use Gary’s link here to get a discount and 2 weeks free trial of the premium membership.

I signed up for the premium membership straightaway, so I’m not sure if you can see the same Premier Inn deals as a basic member or not – let me know in the comments!

    I joined the free subscription, checked the offers and was unimpressed so I thought that maybe the good offers were with the paid subscription. Even less impressed because:
    1. No difference evident between the offers on the free subscription and those on the paid subscription.
    2. Very poor web page as every time I wanted to check something such as ‘free breakfast’ or ‘free parking’ across several hotels the page reverted to the input page so I had to reinput city and dates.
    3. No contact information in web page.

    Very disappointed.

    I have requested to be unsubscribed.

      Yeah, I wasn’t impressed either to begin with – but then I discovered the Premier Inn deals, which are sensationally good. It’s possible there might be other great deals hiding, so I haven’t unsubscribed just yet.

          • Joe Deeney says

            Definitely still showing for me. For example, try Leeds on Friday 7th Jan. Remember to search for 2 adults and then just put the results in ascending price order.

          • Joe Deeney says

            Plenty of options in Feb and March too (looking at London). I even just found Hub Tower Bridge for £13.50ish!

          • Joe Deeney says

            As you would probably expect, Fridays and Sundays (in London) tend to offer the very lowest rates, but I’ve just checked most of Feb and March and there is almost always something decent for between £25-40ish, which is astonishing for London.

        Does this only apply to the UK or across the world? Me and my partner are spending 2 weeks in japan next year, so we can do with discounts on hotels over there! Thanks in advance

        • Joe Deeney says

          Hi Winnie,

          Premier Inn hotels are only in the UK (with a couple of exceptions in Germany and the UAE). Unfortunately, I haven’t spotted any similar deals with other chains in other parts of the world, but it might well be worth having a quick look.

    I also signed up for the Premium service as I found little in the free one. The £11 deals with Premier Inn I found were for Sunday nights but there is currently little else to interest me. I compared with two nights I booked for this weekend at Hatfield and a post Christmas eight nights in Malaga but Wayfarer offered no significant savings for either.

    It does look as though hotel chain rewards and points (including reward nights?) may still be given however when booking through Wayfarer.

    I inadvertently didn’t sign up to Wayfarer using the Insider Flyer link (sorry) so I’m not sure if I can get a refund as no free trial was mentioned. If that’s the case it’s a lesson learned – to be more careful and cautious!

    • Joe Deeney says

      Hi Lawrence,

      Yeah, aside from Premier Inn the savings seem pretty limited (I saw plenty of hotels that actually seemed more expensive!). I also doubt very much members really will get points/rewards and elite benefits when booking through wayfarer. But… London hotels consistently under £40 (and often considerably lower – I checked A LOT of dates) is remarkable.

      Re the link (I actually just grabbed Gary’s from VFTW rather than waiting to negotiate a InsideFlyer one because I wanted to share the deal quickly), I would still definitely get in touch with them and ask to cancel for free. The worst they can say is no, and if you’re not personally getting value from Wayfarer, it seems a reasonable request.

    Thanks Joe, I’ll follow your advice. As you say, sub £40 per night for Premier Inn in London is remarkable.
