Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are you open on Christmas Day?
A: All of our locations are open Christmas Day, offering fuel, toilet facilities, hotel stays and limited food facilities. If you require further information please contact the Site Director of your chosen site.
Q: Can I swap or return something I bought in a Welcome Break site at a different Welcome Break location?
A: If possible we would advise you to take purchases back to the location at which they were purchased. However, if you have moved from this location we suggest problems are dealt with at the next Welcome Break service area, if you have rejoined the motorway. We are happy to exchange or refund any item in a saleable condition returned to us, with proof of purchase, within 30 days. Without proof of purchase, we will exchange at the current or last selling price.
Q: Why do you charge for cash withdrawals?
A: It is a service provided by Bank Machine, not by the banks and Bank Machine make the charge.
A: Yes we do - as part of Welcome Break's commitment to offer great customer service we provide free Wi-Fi that is accessible 24 hours. Whether you are travelling on business or for leisure this service is available to Welcome Break customers. Further details can be found on the Wi-Fi page.
Q: Why is your food so expensive?
A: At Welcome Break we operate a travel retail and hospitality business and consequently our prices cannot be compared to those of a supermarket. A more relevant comparison would be an airport, railway station or department store restaurant, where our prices would compare favourably. In setting our prices, we have to consider that we provide a large number of services 24 hours and for every day of the year. This is an expensive cost to us.
Q: Why do you charge to park at your services?
A: Drivers of all vehicles are entitled to park for up to two hours, free of charge. We believe that this gives sufficient opportunity for rest and refreshment.
Q: How rigidly do you enforce the parking restrictions? What if someone exceeds the two hour limit by a few minutes?
A: We do enforce this restriction as we want to ensure sufficient parking space for all of our customers. If someone thinks they have been given a parking ticket unfairly, we will do all we can to help and look at their case individually.
Q: Do you operate a Coach Drivers Scheme?
A: Yes we do. To apply for free membership to our scheme please visit our <a href=/about-us/coach-drivers page>Coach Drivers Page</a>.
Q: Where can I find out more information about Days Inn?
A: Welcome Break currently operates two brands, Days Inn and Days Hotel. You can find out more about Days Inn on the <a href=/hotels>Hotels Page</a>.
Q: What are your Hotel check-in and check-out times?
A: Check-in is 2pm and check-out is 11am.
