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 42 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 500 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.

Our Values
We Believe in our Vision: We're passionate about inspiring the World to Escape, we don't just want to sell things to people, we truly believe we're helping our customers have better experiences.We're open-minded: We ask for help, we listen and we learn - you'll not hear anyone saying "it's my way or the highway". Our people are smart, our leaders are consistent - everyone's opinion counts and the winning formula is a mix of big, new, smart thinking and a desire to get things done.We love data: Build. Measure. Learn. Iterate. There's no blueprint for success - we all recognise that it's up to us to choose the direction we travel in. A gut feel doesn't cut it when we have all the data at our finger tips. We always deliver: But our energy isn't ever wasted. Running through our veins is a deep rooted pragmatism; we're a team of people that are data-driven and execution- focused. We reach our goals by taking the most effective, direct route and we always get the job done. We're good people: We combine our desire to win, deliver and be brilliant with a genuine humanity and integrity. It's a real privilege to work with people we like. We promote from within and we invest in our team. We love our work: We expect work life to be challenging, rewarding and fun. We're proud to be something special. In short, we give it everything we've got.

Our Location and Transport

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.

A game of Pac-Man, anyone?Summer parties, Christmas parties, quarterly results celebrations and Friday night drinks at our Tiki Bar (don’t let the Tiki Bar sway you, too much…) adds up to plenty of partying. We love getting to know one another better, not to mention finding out who will bag the Best Dancer Award!
