Anytime hotels

Our motto is only the best hotels at unbeatable rates.

With our flash sales, we do even better - our rates are guaranteed to be even better than anywhere else during the sale period.

We’re very proud of the hotels we feature on Secret Escapes, and we know that you may want to book them when they aren’t on flash sale. With this in mind, we've joined forces with Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN) to bring you Anytime hotels - a collection of hand-picked luxury hotels, in the UK and abroad, always available to book at Expedia's best available rates.

By partnering with Expedia, Secret Escapes is now able to offer all of our members access to a selection of our favourite hotels that we may not feature as a flash sale, because we always want to make sure you find what you're looking for.

Our Anytime hotels are permanently available to book and rates are dependent on your chosen check-in/out dates.

Frequently asked questions

What is 'Anytime hotels'?

We're very proud of the hotels we feature on Secret Escapes, and we know that you may want to book them when they aren't on flash sale. With this in mind, we've joined forces with Travelnow.com, a part of Expedia Affiliate Network (EAN) to bring you Anytime hotels - a collection of hand-picked luxury hotels, in the UK and abroad, always available to book at Expedia's best available rates.

Like your flash sales, are Anytime hotels guaranteed to be on sale at lower rates than anywhere online?

No, Anytime hotels are bookable at Expedia’s best available rate, this matches the lowest rate you’ll find online. Our flash sales are different and they are guaranteed to be the cheapest you’ll find anywhere.

So, who's my booking with?

You made the booking via our site, but you're actually booking with Expedia via Expedia's Affiliate Network (EAN), so they will handle your booking.

What's the different between 'Anytime hotels' and flash sales?

Anytime hotels are always available to book on Secret Escapes, they're not subject to any time constraints and they're available to book at Expedia's best available rates. Flash sales are time-limited and are only available on our site for around a week at a time. Flash sales on Secret Escapes are guaranteed to have better rates than you’ll find anywhere online. Both Anytime hotels and our flash sales are hand-picked for our members by Secret Escapes.

Why aren't 'Anytime hotels' cheaper than Expedia?

Anytime hotels are available to book at Expedia's best available rates - so they will cost exactly the same as if booked directly with Expedia. These rates are the best available online - although Secret Escapes' flash sales are available at an even better rate, beating even Expedia's best available rates.

Why should I bother to use Anytime hotels instead of booking anywhere else online?

Each of our Anytime hotels have been hand-picked by our travel experts, and by booking an Anytime hotel via Secret Escapes, you're guaranteed the lowest price available online.

Why can't I use my Secret Escapes credit when booking an 'Anytime hotel'?

You can’t use your Secret Escapes credit with Anytime hotels because this collection is affiliated with Expedia, and Secret Escapes credit can't be applied to Expedia bookings.

Can I use the 'hold' function to reserve a room when booking an Anytime hotel?

A member can only 'hold' a date for a hotel on flash sale. As Anytime hotels are handled by Expedia, the 'hold' function is switched off.

Can I cancel my Anytime hotels booking?

You can manage Anytime hotels bookings via the link in your confirmation email. Our flash sales are exclusive to Secret Escapes and are non-refundable, but Anytime hotels are normal travel agency bookings and Expedia's own cancellation policy applies.

Who do I talk to if I have a problem with my booking?

Secret Escapes has hand-picked the Anytime hotels, so in the first instance contact us. If necessary we'll communicate with Expedia on your behalf.
