Reviews and Testimonials

Quick reminder: you’re probably paying way over the odds for your holidays.

And travel agents aren’t in the business of saving you money.

Why we’re different: we don’t rely on commissions. Instead, we have a free membership and a Premium membership which keeps us afloat.

So when it comes to digging out deals, our only incentive is to let you know when flights and package holidays hit rock-bottom prices from your favourite airports!

And here are just some of the reviews from members who’ve been kind enough to leave their feedback so far…

David West

We booked a week in Skala, Kefalonia based on Henry's offer and went in May 2024.
It was insanely cheap (£277 all in for hotel with pool, breakfast, flights from LGW and transfers) and it turned out to be lovely.

Joined up last week on the premium subscription. I haven’t booked anything yet but from the first few emails I’ve received the subscription looks well worth it - some amazing deals available!

Great service, lovely people, great product. If you actually are in the market for great getaways at short notice & excellent prices, premium membership is well worth it.

I recently travelled to Nimes from Dublin for €49 return!! I would not have known about this incredible deal without The Getaway Lounge. This is a fantastic information platform on holidays from your chosen airport. My recommendation:- everyone needs The Getaway Lounge

This is a fabulous service. I have the premium account and it is well worth the money. We have booked several flights over the last 12 months and saved a fortune. An example: Stockholm return £24 each ! You get to know about all of the top deals on a weekly basis. I thoroughly recommend the getaway lounge. And Henry !

Fantastic service from Henry and The Getaway Lounge, always get a speedy response to any enquiries. Premium membership takes the hassle out of searching for bargain flights and breaks and is great value for money. Highly recommended for people who can be flexible about when they travel.

Came across The Getaway Lounge two days ago. Decided to opt for Premium Membership. This level of membership gives you access to all the amazing deals which Henry sources. I have just booked a long weekend trip to Portugal in December. Flights, hotel accommodation, transfers and full luggage allowance for £220! I look forward to seeing what is next on offer.

I love my updates from The Getaway Lounge for cheap deals from airports near me!!

I've been dying to take advantage of the alerts for ages and finally...

Just booked a long weekend in Malta with my boyfriend, only £44pp in November and it's still 21°C then, I'm so excited! ?

Would definitely recommend signing up to take advantage of the alerts for great deals on flights. ?

Brenda Kay

Great bargains. All the offers I have seen have looked good, but only now have the dates fitted my schedule.

I knew I wanted a break later in the year, and the latest one from my local airport fitted the bill perfectly.
I got a bargain! Means I will be able to treat myself to a few days in a nice hotel.

Fantastic service provider.
Flights from Manchester tend to be more expensive so it’s awesome that we get great prices. But be quick to book though as the tickets sell out.

I've taken advantage of an unbeatable Getaway offer and booked from Leeds to Florence for a weekend break. Annoyingly the cost had gone up slightly due to my hesitance in booking, but still cheap and I’m looking forward to more spontaneous trips away.....preferably from Newcastle next time:)
