The Getaway

Extraordinary travel

within reach

The Getaway makes extraordinary travel possible for everyone.

We know that travel is powerful: it opens up the world and transforms your perspective. We also know that travel can be expensive. We looked everywhere for a site that would connect us to unique, unforgettable experiences without destroying our budget and provide real-time answers to our specific travel questions — but we couldn’t find anything.

So we created that site ourselves.

Maybe you’re a major planner, or always ready to toss some clothes into a carry-on for a last-minute long weekend. You may picture yourself behind the wheel, or looking out the window of a train. Maybe you’re after insanely old paintings, or gorgeous views to Instagram for everyone back home. Either way, we bet you want to see the world differently — because we do too. The Getaway will get you there.
