What measures are in place at Premier Inn to make sure that I’m safe when travelling alone?
We’ve implemented a number of simple, security measures to ensure all our guests have a comfortable, enjoyable and safe stay with us.
• When you check-in we'll hand you your room details discreetly and we won't say them out loud, so they are not overheard
• Wherever possible we will give single female travellers rooms that are not on the ground floor or at the end of a corridor
• Every Premier Inn has a door entry system and only Premier Inn guests can enter after 11pm at night
• Our receptions are manned 24 hours a day, so there is always someone on hand to help
• Every bedroom door is fitted with a deadlock or chain
If you're eating alone, many of our restaurants feature nooks, crannies and corners where you can enjoy your meal undisturbed.
Any tips to help me stay safe?
We’re proud to be associated with the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, a charitable organization set up to raise awareness around personal safety. In conjunction with the trust we have produced the following guide to keeping yourself safe:
• If you can, book accommodation and plan your journey in advance to give you confidence to travel safely
• Let someone know where you will be staying and contact them on arrival
• Don't pack unnecessary valuables
• If you have any concerns with your room location ask if a replacement is possible
• If your room door is ajar or looks like it’s been tampered with, return to reception and ask for the room to be checked
• Arrange to meet colleagues in a public place when holding meetings at hotels
