I’ve just signed up – how does it work?

Last Updated on October 14, 2023 by Henry @ The Getaway Lounge

This post is reviewed on a regular basis to ensure a high level of accuracy.

Firstly – welcome and thank you for joining The Getaway Lounge UK!

If you’ve joined successfully, you should have received your Welcome Deal by now, which will be sent to you within about 5 minutes after confirming your email address and departure airports, if its your first time here.

How does it work going forward?

Going forward, you’ll receive a fresh deal every couple of weeks from your favourite airports.

The more airports you’ve selected, the more deals you’ll receive.

For example, if you’re happy to receive deals from both the Midlands and the North West – you’ll get twice as many deals.

You can update your airport preferences at any time using the link at the footer of our email alerts.

Is there anywhere to log in and view the deals?

This is something we might introduce in the near future, but for the time being we only send out deals via email as and when we find them.

These deals are often very time sensitive and we have a lot of regions and preferences to account for, so it wouldn’t be feasible for us to be constantly checking and updating them at the moment.

What’s the difference between the free and Premium membership?

You might have noticed that we have two levels of membership.

The free membership is more basic, but still provides a very valuable service which focusses purely on long weekends departing from your favourite airports.

The Premium membership unlocks even more deals from your favourite airports, and you can expect to see a couple a week in comparison to a couple a month (around 3 – 4 times more deals).

Premium includes all the long weekend deals, as well as the longer getaways typically up to nights long, and the midweek getaways (you can opt in for whichever combination works for you).

So you’ll be more likely to take advantage of the deals that work for you, and more likely to bag some great savings, but it’s completely optional.

What destinations do you cover?

We feature destinations all over Europe, depending on what’s cheap / fantastic value.

For free members, this includes short-haul getaways only – destinations that tend to be under a 3.5 hour flight away max.

For Premium members, you’ll get all the short-haul deals as well as the medium-haul deals, unlocking even more destinations such as Greece and Canaries etc.

Any more questions?

Please don’t hesitate to reply to any email we send you if you need any further information, or of course you can email us directly right now using one of the following two email addresses, and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible:

    When will you be instigating a log in feature for Premium so we can look at all the deals on offer?

    • Hi Stuart, as soon as we can. The problem at the moment is that the deals are very specific and time sensitive, so it wouldn’t be feasible for us to be constantly checking them at the moment. But we definitely hope to be able to facilitate this soon!

    Hi Henry,
    Can you advise whether your breaks are suitable for solo travellers. I’d prefer to be sure before paying the membership fee.
    Thanks in advance,

    Hi. Really excited. Just joined the free option. I’m sure I’ll subscribe to premium within a few weeks once I get the hang of the site. Xx
