Luxury Travel Diary, a high-end travel blog with great reviews based in the UK, has a bunch of travel auctions — some about to close, others extend into October — and there look to be some real bargains.
They wanted to highlight some of these, and offered to help organize a giveaway of a 3 night stay in a 3-bedroom luxury apartment in Knightsbridge, London for readers of this blog. Details on how to comment on this post to win below.
Folks who already know about these auctions won’t like the added attention, because frankly there aren’t enough bidders relative to the value of the offerings and some of these items go too cheap.
Here are some great auction values ending soon:
- 2 Nights At Bayview Resort, Hamptons, New York — as I write it’s at 101 British pounds.
- 7 Nights In A Luxury Travelopo Villa In Mallorca — £340.00 really???
- 3 Nights At Hope Town Lodge, Bahamas — £105.00 right now, no reserve.
- 7 Nights For 8 Guests At Villa Russelia In Rhodes, Greece, check out this current price…
- 7 Nights At Hotel Marinedda Thalasso & Spa, Sardinia, interested in Sardinia but think the Starwood options are just too pricey?
- 4 Night Yacht Charter With Kalimba Caribbean Tours, how baller would this be?
Check out the full details on each before bidding to make sure availability matches when you can travel. There’s page after page of auctions to scroll through, generally nice places that regularly appear to be selling for much less than they should.
Prize: a three-night stay in a luxury apartment in Knightsbridge, London at The Ovington Elegance – subject to availability, stay by April 28 (excluding December 25-27, December 31-January, and March 25-26).
The Ovington Elegance is a superb, luxury Three Bedroom Three Bathroom serviced apartments right on Brompton Road in the heart of London’s Knightsbridge. Two minutes’ walk from Harrod’s store and other exclusive shopping in the immediate area and with easy access to Knightsbridge and South Kensington tube stations, The Ovington Elegance has all of the luxury features and comfort you need for your central London stay backed up by London Lifestyle Apartment’s hospitality and care to ensure that you fully enjoy your visit to London.
London, like Paris, is one of those cities where a residential apartment is a great option for visitors. I tend to book hotels because I have so many points, but coming out of pocket living like a local can be uniquely appealing. This property looks lovely and in a great location — and while not cheap it’s a real value for three bedrooms!
To enter: leave a comment on this post with your favorite item up for auction at Luxury Travel Diary, or why you would choose to stay at The Ovington Elegance luxury apartment in Knightsbridge over other hotels in London. You may enter two times if you wish and answer those two questions one time each in separate comments.
Contest deadline and drawing winner: Entries close Thursday, December 3 at Noon eastern. I will draw winner with the assistance of random.org.
The fine print: For avoidance of doubt I have no affiliation with either Luxury Travel Diary or The Ovington Elegance luxury apartment. I will put the winner in touch with the hotel for booking. They are solely responsible for providing prize to winner. All decisions made in the course of running this giveaway are final and unappealable and your entry signifies your acceptance. The goal here is to make readers aware of a pretty cool auction opportunity, and to give away an apartment stay in London. So please don’t make it hard on me for doing so!
