An interesting charity auction caught my eye over at luxurytraveldiary.com. It is possibly the biggest and broadest travel auction that I have seen outside of the mainstream press – and because this is being run by a more modestly sized site, your chance of a bargain is better.
All proceeds from the auction are being split between UNICEF, Doctors Without Borders and Julia’s House, a hospice close to the author in Dorset.
The range of items is huge. There is a private jet trip between New York and California (currently at £1,150) sitting directly above a candle and an iPad cover (£7.50).
There are stays available at hotels and resorts all over the world, and some of them are currently not attracting any bidding interest despite being very valuable. Two nights in a Junior Suite at the Old Bahama Bay resort in the Bahamas (pictured above) is currently at £5. On the other hand, a night at the new Park Hyatt in Vienna is close to its true value.
The best thing to is pop over to Luxury Travel Diary and take a look. The auction lots do not close until March so you have plenty of time.
