Going, going, gone! Australia's leading student and youth travel provider -- STA Travel -- has unveiled its online travel auction site, allowing their travellers the ability to bid online and ultimately determine how much they pay for their holidays.
With no set reserves and all bids starting from $1, the launch of the online travel auction unlocks the world of cheap travel to all - but the advice is to get auction bids in quickly before the best deals are snapped up.
The enormous selection of destinations to be auctioned-off online include: Tokyo, London, LA, Hong Kong, Toronto and Vancouver.
STA Travel's Product and Marketing Director, Basil Hyman, has claimed that actively listening and then catering to the needs of this market helps STA Travel to be industry leaders and innovators in the online space.
"Our customers are young, savvy and smart. They want to mould the world they live in - whether this is about taking control of their careers, their environment or the news they read. The STA Travel Auction site now allows them to dictate the price they pay for their holidays, too."
"Participants simply need to register online for the auction on the STA Travel website - http://www.statravel.com.au/auction Registration is free and users can log-in at any time to monitor how their bid is placed, with the highest online bidder claiming victory at the end of the travel auction period'' he said.
Auction bids are automatically placed in set increments until the maximum bid is reached. This maximum limit can be increased at any time - should the contender wish to improve their chances due to the intense competition.
When discussing the range of travel deals available, Mr Hyman said that STA Travel had secured destinations that ensured there was "something for everyone".
With flights departing all major Australian capital cities, there's an awesome amount of online auction-action bound to satisfy all travel lovers.
The STA Travel Auction site also hosts a range of other travel options up for auction, such as: accommodation, tours, package-holidays, travel passes and more.
