JV to bring Travelodge brands to Thailand

Travelodge Hotels Asia has entered into an agreement with Thailand's Absolute Hotel Services Group (AHS) to form Travelodge Thailand, a joint venture to bring the Travelodge brands to Thailand. Four brands will be entering the Thai market: Nano by Travelodge, One by Travelodge, Skye by Travelodge and the main Travelodge brand.

In regard to introducing Travelodge to the Thai market, Jonathan Wigley, CEO of AHS, said: “Thailand continues to be one of Asia’s most popular holiday and business destinations. Travel and tourism is a key contributor to the Thai economy and the country’s GDP. Specifically, the midscale hotel segment that Travelodge and its three sub-brands operate in is expected to fit in well with the travel demographics of Thailand. We are excited to bring in a new international brand to Thailand and we target over 4000 keys in Thailand for Travelodge by 2020.”
