Shhhhhhh! Secret Escapes
“Shhhhh! Quick, Go, Go,” the strange lady hisses, before regaining her composure enough to declare Secret Escapes the “worst-kept secret in luxury travel.” But is it really any good?
Secret Escpaes promise to offer “Hand picked hotels at members only rates” where savings up to 70% can be had, but do they deliver on their promises?
SecretHotelsRevealed.co.uk carried out a comparison on hotels only, the results of which can be seen below;
Setai Fifth Avenue – New York City, USA
7 nights accomodation starting 30 Sept – Standard King Room
Booking.com – £3670
SecretEscapes – £2695
Saving approx 27%
St Martins Lane – Covent Garden, London
2 nights accomodation starting 02 Nov – Deluxe King Room
Booking.com – £621
SecretEscapes – £537
Saving approx 14%
The George Hotel – Penrith, Cumbria
2 nights accomodation starting 29 Sept – Standard double room offer (B&B, 1 x 3 course dinner)
Booking.com – £268
SecretEscapes – £218
Saving approx 19%
All the above examples do show a saving when compared to Booking.com, undoubtedly one of the cheapest hotel website provider on the internet (often beating Hotels.com, LateRooms.com and LastMinute.com), however we did struggle to make a saving anywhere near the much promoted Secret Escapes 70% level.
Secret Escpaes only have a very small number of hotels & holidays available at any one time, whereas Booking.com boast 241,119 hotels in 41000 available all over the world.
If you know where you want to stay, and when, checking Secret Escapes to see if they have anything that fits the bill could be worth your while!
