Arlington Heights, IL, United States, 2009/10/03 - Vacation package domestically or around the world, take a few minutes to peruse Deals-Travel.com new travel auction site before booking.
Deals-Travel.com, Inc., a rapidly growing online travel auctions website and an alternative to eBay in this market space, has announced the official launch.
If you like eBay, you might love Deals-Travel.com, which auctions off travel deals from around the world inventory for all kind of travel, vacation packages, hotels, tickets and more. Unlike the CheapTickets, Hotwire or Priceline, you know which travel package you are bidding on before you start the process of buying, so you can go research it and see what you're in for before you decide to commit a bid. Deals-Travel.com really works well, just note that you are not bidding on specific dates, so it's best to win, reserve the specific dates, and then sort out the flights if it's not low or shoulder season.
Most of the sales take place through a auction format, but stores and "Buy It Now" listings are also available. Deals-Travel.com allows sellers to use a variety of rich media solutions within listings in order to aid and improve the format and presentation of the listing. This includes audio, video and picture galleries.
Deals-Travel.com offer numerous of cheap vacation packages, hotels and air fares, to both domestic and many foreign destinations including North and South America, Africa, Australia, Asia and Europe. Most tickets and travel package offers will be kept on auction for one week. However, certain items that have a close departure date to the auction will require an instant response from bidders.
To use Deals-Travel.com you must become a registered user by completing an easy form, and it's free! After you submit your form you will be emailed a confirmation code that you will use to activate your account. When you find an item you like in the category listings you will use your customer ID and password to place a bid. If you have chosen to be notified when outbid, you will be sent an email message as soon as someone overbids you.
Deals-Travel works much like eBay does, except you're buying from a travel agency inventory from around the world, not from a person. You submit one bid at a time or autobid up to the amount you are willing to pay. Most of the travel deals are for a specific-length package 3,5 or 7 nights or are set up on a "bid per night" basis where you can stay as long as the listing allows for that nightly rate. The one caveat to this service is that you have to read the rules and conditions very carefully. They vary a lot from item to item and the extra fees can easily add up to more than your bid price if you're not careful.
