Why can I no longer get Audible Escape?
We introduced Audible Plus, our new general interest all-you-can-listen plan, in August 2020. Audible Plus includes titles across multiple genres, including Romance, as well as shorter-form titles, podcasts, and Audible Originals. Audible Plus will be our single all-you-can listen option in the US.
What’s happening to all of the books that are a part of Audible Escape?
After November 1, all titles previously in Audible Escape will be available for purchase with cash or an Audible monthly credit. A selection of titles previously in Audible Escape will also be available in Audible Plus. To view some of these titles, you can browse our dedicated Romance in Plus page.
Will I be able to finish the titles that I’m currently listening to?
You have until November 1 to finish your Audible Escape titles. After that, they will be removed from your library.
Will I still be able to see my Borrow History after Audible Escape ends?
Yes! You will have access to your Borrow History. Click here to see it.
Am I going to be charged for Audible Escape between now and November 1?
No, you will not be charged again after September 16th, but you will still have access to the full Escape catalog until closure on November 1.
What other membership options will I have?
You now have the option of unlimited listening to the Audible Plus Catalog for $7.95/month with an Audible Plus membership. In the Plus catalog you’ll discover a wide selection of exciting content added weekly, as well as a robust, always evolving selection of Romance titles for the avid listener.
