Secret Escapes is an online community offering exclusive rates and deals at luxury hotels in the UK and elsewhere around the globe.
Secret Escapes offers exactly what its name suggests — access to incredible hotel rates otherwise unknown to the public in destinations around the world. In exchange for signing up with Secret Escapes by giving them only your email address, the site offers deals at hotels with rates at up to 70% off. The site only works with high-quality luxury hotels, as only four or five-star locations are listed. They also only work with hotels that give them exclusive rates, meaning that the lower prices found on Secret Escapes can’t be found elsewhere on the web. It’s extremely easy to sign up for an account, and the deals offered are amazing.
The deals on Secret Escapes are typically “flash sales,” or deals that are only available to book on the site for about 10 days. Unlike services such as Hotel Tonight, the deals aren’t only available on last minute rooms, so users can plan a vacation in advance and still book a room through Secret Escapes. There is, however, a limited amount of deals offered, so users have to act relatively quickly if they want to take advantage of a particular low price. All of the deals are only available via Secret Escapes’ web page, but the site blasts out an email as soon as its deals go live. They typically maintain about 80 flash deals at any given moment. The site also has a strong price guarantee policy, so users can be sure that they wont find a better deal elsewhere online. If they do, Secret Escapes will do their best to accommodate those users. If you travel at all, Secret Escapes is another great online booking tool worth having on your bookmarks bar.
