Our Editor’s Review:
You get more value for your money on Luxury Link. Unlike Priceline or other hotel bidding sites, taxes are generally included in the price. The prices are generally for 3 to 5 night hotel packages, and most Luxury Link auctions include free dining credits, spa treatments or other fun extras. When you add up how much those extra’s would cost you otherwise, the savings are incredible. Plus, you’ll find some of the most exotic destinations on Luxury Link, which offer great vacation ideas.
Some people are wary of online travel auctions, and are afraid that Luxury Link is a scam. Be rest assurred that Luxury Link has been online since 1997, and is not a scam. Luxury Link is a legitimate travel auction site, and we have used them ourselves without issues. Just read carefully over the terms & conditions prior to starting a bid, so that you know exactly what fees you may be charged. Each travel auction has it’s own terms and blackout dates generally apply. If you don’t feel comfortable bidding on travel, Luxury Link has many fixed price offers that don’t require any bidding at all. However the best deals are usually found on the travel auctions. Make sure to check out Luxury Link’s “AUCTIONS CLOSING SOON” page where it is easiest to save up to 50%, because the bidding is about to come to a close. At times there will be less than a hour to bid, and this is where real deals are made.
Most Luxury Link travel auctions are priced for two people. If you are traveling with a family, visit their sister-site FamilyGetaway.com. That’s not to say that Luxury Link doesn’t cater to groups. Do you want to stay in an giant Italian castle with a group of friends? We found that here, for groups as large as 20! When you break down the pricing per person, it can be more affordable than a hotel and much more memorable.
The selection on Luxury Link is definately a little sparse compared to other travel sites. You may not find a specific hotel that you intend to stay at. As Luxury Link specializes in luxury travel auctions, you won’t find the flexibilty here to customize vacation packages as you do on other sites, and you will not find budget properties. You also need to keep your eyes peeled and read the terms & conditions carefully on each auction prior to bidding to make sure that the fees and available travel dates are acceptable to you.
