UK Penny Auction Bidder With Wanderlust? You May Want to Try This New Travel Site!

hawaiiIf you know anything about me personally, you know that I absolutely love to travel.

I’ve been blessed with the ability to visit so many wonderful places over the past few years. My favorites so far are Colombia for the amazing hiking in the foothills of the Andes, St. Maarten for Orient Beach, Guatemala for the handicrafts, Prague for the architecture, Japan for the cherry blossoms and because it’s super hip, Spain for the amazing vegetarian food, Hawaii for the island life. (The photo above was taken by me on my flight leaving Honolulu.) “Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” I believe it. 

So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I LOVE penny auctions for travel.

I really miss OffAndAway! It was an amazing penny auction site for highly rated hotels/resorts, suites included. I stayed in a stunning penthouse suite in Chicago way back when that site was around. Ah, the memories!

This brings me to the newest penny auction site for travel, and while I can’t bid on the site, since I’m US based, I still wanted to share this one with my UK readers here!

Thirst for wanderlust? Give this one a try and let me know what you think!

GetAwayAnywhere:Airfare for Under $1? It’s Possible, New UK Penny Auction for Travel  launched about 6 months ago, it’s a bidding site offering deals on travel experiences and discounts on airfare via their pay-per-bid platform. Screen Shot 2015-05-19 at 10.48.55 PM

Right now GetAwayAnywhere has been offering two auctions per day, one for a trip or travel experience deal and one for a bid pack.

Current auctions include 50 bidding credits and a trip for two to Venice. Both auctions end today, May 20.

The trip to Venice includes 2 roundtrip tickets from London to Venice, Italy on British Airways on your choice of dates up to a max value of 350 pounds and subject to seat availability.

Notice how it looks like a lot of the same bidders are winning auctions?
A trip to Amsterdam sold to to bidder “neilha1” for only 1.68 pounds, Carson has been able to rack up free bid credits by winning a few bid credit auctions. magdakor has won a trip to Amsterdam for 7.84 pounds, an Aer Lingus 250 pound voucher and 100 bidding credits.
How Does GetAwayAnywhere work?
Since GetAwayAnywhere is a penny auction, you must purchase bids for the chance to bid in any of their auctions. When an auction is about to start the countdown clock will start to countdown, wait until about a minute prior to the auction to start to really start bidding. Each bid credit is worth 50 pence.
  • 5 pounds – 10 bids
  • 10 Pounds – 20 bids + 1 free
  • 25 pounds – 50 bids + 5 free
  • 50 pounds – 100 bids + 20 free
  • 100 pounds – 200 bids + 50 free

So, once you buy a bid pack you have a chance to start bidding to try to win an auction. Bidding and buying tons of bid packs is not a guarantee you will win. You will (most likely) be bidding against other bidders once the auction of your choosing begins, so really – the last man standing is the one who will win when the auction clock hits 0. Penny auctions are very much unlike eBay in that once another bidders places a bid the auction clock gets reset *(usually at 10 seconds)*, and you have to place another bid to reset it again and regain your chance at winning. Sound risky? It can be. Sounds like a waste of time? It can be too, but you can also win big. It really all just depends.

One great thing about this site is that they offer buy-now. This means you can purchase the tickets at the price stated minus the value of the bids that you placed on an auction. Buy-now is only available to the first 20 buyers and for up to 2 hours after the auction has closed, so be sure to take advantage of this.
