One of my main tips for leisure travelers is periodically check BiddingforGood.com for hotel travel deals. This week there are dozens of chain hotels in a few auctions posted on BiddingforGood.com ending August 24 and 25. Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, Choice and other independent hotels have deals at the present time.
Obviously the prices seen today may be far higher by the end of the week. But not necessarily for some hotels. Some of my best travel deals of the past few years were auction stay wins.
Here is a small sample of a dozen hotel stay auctions available for bids with latest bid price at Mon Aug 19, 7:20am PDT.
