Save on Hotel Travel Expenses

October 26, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

If you want an interesting and innovative way to save on hotel travel expenses, go to the interesting auction site where you can bid on hotel gift certificates. These certificates are normally $200 and often go for under $50!

Baidu Hotel sells the hotel gift certificates via a “penny auction” process. It is a simple process where you bid on hotel gift certificates at the cost of$0.50 per bid. Each bid drops the price by $0.10, so the more people who bid for a particular hotel gift certificate, the greater the discount. Recently, a $200 certificate for Hotel 41 on Times Square, New York went for under $40.00: and the successful bidder will then discount this off on his next stay at the hotel. Furthermore, this is not a discount off the rack rate but off the best deals going at the time. In this case the rack rate is average $279 while the best deal found, using the website link, is $199, which means that you will spend a night at a great Times Square hotel for the $40 that you bid!

The auction process is rather simple: register on the website (no cost): buy a bid package ($15.00 for 30 bids), then start bidding on the auction. Each hotel gift certificate on action is on for a limited time, so you can watch the clock and the price run down, and time your bids accordingly. When the price is what you want, hit the “buy” button. If you are first, then you win the auction at the purchase value on the screen. The certificate is then fully redeemable at the hotel.

Look at the Baidu Hotel site when you next plan your holiday or business trip and you will certainly save on hotel travel as Baidu Hotel has deals with hotels in over 10 prime cities in the USA and Canada plus with some of the top hotel chains. Register for free and receive great deals.
