A safe and effective way to enhance your travel performance without the use of steroids or any type of enhancement drugs. (By using your Brain)

June 7, 2013

With all this talk about people using all types of substances to enhance this or that performance you can rejoice in the fact that you can enhance your “travel” performance without the use of any outside stimulus.  That is correct, each one of us possesses the tools we need to travel and save money like the most seasoned professional, and we only need to use one thing, our brain!  (You might need your fingers to type with or maybe not) 

I am not trying to be sanctimonious or pass judgment on those who feel injecting themselves with hormones or smothering themselves in product reviews and brochures might somehow bring them to a greater state of travel enlightenment, quite the contrary.  Go on, go through whatever ritual you feel works for you but no matter what you do, you aren’t getting the most for your travel dollar unless you understand how auctioning travel changes the very game itself. 

 WWW.skyauction.com has been around for many a year now. (Since 1999)  We have helped millions of customers to develop their full potential when it comes to the confusing world of purchasing travel.  Our formula is quite easy to relate to:  Find the best price you can on the trip you want to take and then come to our site and bid for it, or any like product.  I know you are getting bombarded by tons of sites telling you this and that about what a great deal they have for you.  You are receiving daily deals, deals with groups of other travelers, deals for jetsetting people, deals with prices on the line, deals for bookings and so many more, you just don’t understand which one is the best for you.  That is where we make it easy, you put in the bid amount you want to pay, simple. 

You use your brain to determine the best price on a deal and that is what you bid on www.skyauction.com.  We have luxury products that can save you hundreds on your purchase.  Of course we have cruises, hotels, packages, vacation rentals (no one has them for less) and even shows and attractions.  What we don’t have are a lot of fixed prices that steal your individualism by forcing you to join some kind of “group” to get a real deal on travel.  Besides, no other company makes you a winner in the process! 

So bulk up on your knowledge and come and bid on your next trip.  Don’t worry we don’t test for any banned substance either!

Hot Trends, why Vacation Rentals are cool

May 21, 2013

Whenever I am relaxing with a group of friend they always get around to the subject of travel and they pick my brain about what is “hot” in the marketplace.  Over the past few years there have been more deals available than travelers to occupy them, but not so much in 2013.  First of all, airfares are crazy high right now and it is really cutting down on the type of long distance family travel this summer.  People are still going, but they have to dig a lot deeper into their pockets if they want to board a plane.  The one constant area of growth for this year is in the area of vacation rentals.   What is a vacation rental you ask, it is more like a hotel/apartment than your standard hotel accommodations.  In many cases they are substantially less money that hotel rooms and they allow you a lot more room and flexibility and they are usually concentrated in great locations at all the major tourist destinations.  Here is what I see as the major benefits provided by using a vacation rental for your next trip.

Benefits of Vacation Rental

  1. Size matters: larger accommodations at the same or lower cost as a regular hotel room.  If you travel in a large group of friends or with extended family, a vacation rental apartment is a practical option.

 

  1. Location, location, location: Good locations near local attractions, restaurants and transportation.

 

  1. You gotta eat:  Most of our vacation rentals come with a fully equipped kitchen and private dining space which means you can save money dining in and plan meals around your family’s schedule.

 

  1. Home away from home:  A vacation rental apartment for a family means parents do not have to worry about their children being in another room down the corridor. A vacation rental apartment will function like a second home, making it easier for you to monitor your children.

 

  1. Laundry: This is a huge benefit. Most vacation rentals have a washer/dryer in them. This means you can pack less and save on baggage fees if you are flying. You can also do laundry mid-week, or if you are like me, do all of your laundry while on vacation, so you come home with two big suitcases full of clean clothes! (Don’t forget to bring laundry detergent with you.)

 

 

  1. Selection:  No one offers you a wider selection of vacation rentals to choose from than Skyauction.com.  We have them, all over the world at amazing discount prices.

Many vacation rental destinations in the USA are easily accessible by driving which is also a huge benefit to traveling families.  Just pile the family in the car and off you go.

Skyauction.com has been offering a huge variety of highly discounted vacation rental units for many years now.  We have sold many hundreds of thousands of weeks all over the world but many in your favorite USA destinations.  Orlando, Las Vegas, California, Atlantic City, Williamsburg, and up and down both coasts and to many, many places in between, we have something for everyone that will save you money and provide a great vacation that you can indeed afford! Image

4 Travel Deals, you have to really want it!

March 9, 2013

Travel Relevance in the face of total Travel Irrelevance

How can anyone make a determination on what is a good deal anymore when purchasing travel? The noise is deafening! So many web marketing companies are mining for gold in the travel space that they have completely bleached the word “deal” into something less that white, it is nearly invisible! Even the savviest in the crowd can’t get a firm handle on where, when and under what restrictions you can gain access to a good place to go, at a good price. The web went from wonderful to wondrous, as you stare wide-eyed into a glaze of deals, deals, deals. I meet and speak to people every day who wouldn’t know a real bargain if it bit them in the butt!
You need to stop, get away from the groups and the people living socially and make up your own mind. There are some really great sites for research and photos and descriptions on just about every destination on earth. Get a feel for what you want to do and how much you would like to spend. With that said, here is my paramount piece of advice: DON’T BE A JERK! Sorry if that was rude but you don’t know how many people I run into that want to buy 6 star luxury for 2 star prices. Yep, they go and come back and rant about how they usually stay here or there, but decided to go for a deal and found it wasn’t here or there, it was somewhere completely different! What a shock.
So if you are realistic, and you can narrow down your choices to a few regions you can go out and shop your deal dreams on a few very powerful websites. This doesn’t mean these are the big, big guys alone, but a few that are in business to deliver high value for money spent.
That is where we come in, we make deals, that is all we do. We live to secure and deliver good deals to the people we do business with. Sure we offer some buy it now type stuff for those who won’t ever understand that in order to get real savings, the process might require a bit more “inconvenience” than on other sites. You might have to wait a while for a confirmation but you really have to understand that our unusual process saves you money at the end of the day. So if you really want something extraordinary, and you are willing to invest a bit more time, then you may be worthy of working with us. If you want to pay more to be with the group, then go right ahead.

Atlantic City, for Bettor or Worse.

March 3, 2013

 

Atlantic City, this almost reborn jewel on the New Jersey coast has recovered nicely from its recent bout with Hurricane Sandy.  As someone who has been known to frequent this town from time to time, I have always been puzzled by AC’s schizophrenic nature.  A part of the city is big and gaudy and loud, and the other part seedy, and unattended and shot but together they make up a really freaky intertwined mess of place that is generally a lot of fun to visit.  I mean, there are not too many places you can go that offer you the ability to see a slice of history along its streets and sleazy boardwalk, all while being showered in the glaring lights from hotels that are as out of place here as they possible could be.  Strolling, you are moving through a maze of carnival games, homeless squatters, pretty girls dressed to kill, and fat, middle aged men with that, “Forgetabout” look and pinky rings.  The Casinos offer you an opportunity to sit shoulder to shoulder with people you would never get a chance to meet if left up to your own devices, and I mean never.  I love to walk around and just watch all the different types of people mesh together in what can only be described as a bastion of universality, it is a melting pot for every one of every shape, size and background.   

If you have never been to Atlantic City, it is someplace to be seen.  People like me are left to wonder if this is what they set out to create, and if it is, what bizarre mind came up with the idea?  Nothing here seems to fit right, not the structures, not the boardwalk, not even the people.  It seems always one step away from being anything cohesive, and it kind of works, but you’re never quite sure how it does.

The only thing that would be worse than spending time here is never doing so.  It isn’t funky chic, its sleazy chic. This is the East Coast baby, NJ’s version of hip meets trailer park meets the down and out, over a latte with frothed soy milk while being walked down the ocean front in a foot driven pedi-cab by an Angolan kid who speaks better English than you do!

Don’t be confused just check it out.
