Check-in.com.au’s Escape Lounge

March 14, 2014 OTA News No Comments Email Email

Part of one of Australia’s leading online accommodation booking hubs, Check-in.com.au’s Escape Lounge is a unique one-stop-shop for travellers wanting to build and book a customised holiday, and features lively, fresh editorial content designed to inspire Australian travel lovers from all walks of life.

Jessica ByrnesComplementing the 150,000+ hotels bookable on the Check-in.com.au website, Check-in.com.au’s Escape Lounge allows users to investigate and book in-destination experiences such as holiday packages, tours, activities, and services including car hire and babysitting. This system provides customers with the ability to create a seamless itinerary and book all components of their getaway in one place.

The Escape Lounge was originally founded by entrepreneurs Jessica Byrnes and Jarrod Bryce as a stand-alone website in September 2013. Jessica and Jarrod had noticed the proliferation of lifestyle and travel related booking and discount sites and saw an opportunity to develop a new online platform to cater to travel lovers in Australia.

After meeting with a range of tourism bodies and trade representatives, they identified the need for a fully-integrated holiday booking platform that offered auxiliary products including in-destination experiences – from dining options to tours and activities – and services like babysitting.

Following a successful launch and impressive initial growth, the site drew the interest of ASX listed Disruptive Investment Group Limited (ASX: DVI) and owner of Check-in.com.au.

Disruptive Investment Group Limited, via its wholly-owned subsidiary, has agreed to acquire a 50 per cent stake in Escape Lounge Pty Ltd (owner of EscapeLounge.com.au), which has now been integrated and relaunched as Check-in.com.au’s Escape Lounge with Jessica Byrnes leading the marketing and business development team.

Membership to Check-in.com.au is free and all users have access to Check-in.com.au’s Escape Lounge. For more information visit www.check-in.com.au.
