Secret Escapes operates in 21 countries worldwide and is the UK’s biggest members-only website that runs best-in-market flash sales of four-and five-star hotels and holidays. We offer our members exclusive rates of up to 70% off.
We’re inspiring the world to escape by striving to be the worlds biggest and best source of great value travel inspiration.
Before starting Secret Escapes, we wondered why booking a holiday always felt like hard work – the price comparisons, the awful early morning flights just to get the best price, the huge range of possible hotels, both good and bad. Travel is, and should be, exciting – and booking a holiday should be a stress-free experience. That’s what we set out to achieve, and it is the philosophy that drives us on. We want to inspire people to escape, and we do so with amazing images, sharp, accessible writing, exciting destinations and unbeatable prices.
We already have more than 31 million members worldwide and a social-media following the size of a small country, and you can now find us everywhere from Spain to the US, from Sweden to Italy, Poland and Norway, from Germany to Switzerland, and elsewhere too. Founded in 2011, we’re (over 400 of us globally) doing big things fast and it’s all very exciting.
Our Tech and Editorial blogs give you an insight into some of the key areas that make us what we are. Have a read about our CSR commitments to see what good souls we are too… even if we do say so ourselves.
The Secret Escapes London office is perfectly situated in Holborn and neighbours bustling Leather Lane and trendy Farringdon. Leather Lane is a busy market with a whole range of goodies, from burritos to curries, clothes and novelty goods. Who knows what you’ll bring back from your lunch break after a little wander. A little further on, you’ll find Farringdon with bars, clubs, and lots to keep you entertained after a day’s work.
Transport: We know, we know - not as exciting as all our perks and quirks, but it’s good stuff to know. HQ is based a very short walk from Chancery Lane tube, a 10-minute walk from Holborn, and a short bus ride from Waterloo. Farringdon station is also easily accessible, giving you lots of options to get to and from work.
Staff awards and recognition are an important part of working at Secret Escapes. Our regular hero awards mean achievements and the completion of important projects don’t go unnoticed. These heroes are recognised at our company gatherings, like the end of quarter meetings and the Christmas party. Alongside these achievement awards, we also like to make sure we are having fun in the office and awards for the messiest desk, the most sporty or best dressed person etc, are also up for grabs
