Secret Escapes

Secret Escapes is an exclusive members-only travel club offering discounted rates on luxury hand-picked hotels and holidays in the UK and abroad. The Company only works with hotels that give it exclusive rates – Secret Escapes looks after its members and find them good prices. The Company is also always on the look-out for those additional perks that make staying at its hotels extra special: complimentary room upgrades, a bottle of bubbly, a massage – that sort of thing. By hand-picking hotels and holidays for members, Secret Escapes acts as an agent for the suppliers, tour operators, and hotels featured on the site.
