    Bidding

     

    You have the opportunity to bid on our weekly auctions that close at 8 PM EST on Tuesdays based on location, vacation amenities such as golf, spa facilities, area attractions, and price. Bidders can save as much as 80% for their Florida vacations. Our winning bidders average savings of more than 50%, so trying your hand at an auction is a great way to save.

    Registration is free and simple and is required to bid on the website. If you have ADA limitations and require assistance registering on our site, please call or email us so we can help you. Before bidding, you must save your address and credit card information into your account. We do not sell your information or store this information off of the server.

    Bids are placed in $5 or $10 increments. When you place a bid by entering the Max Bid field, that amount will automatically be entered in the Maximum Bid field. If you are outbid, you will receive an email and/or text alert with a link back to that auction, providing you the opportunity to place another bid. You can also bid on a budget by entering a higher amount in the Maximum Bid field – in increments of $10 as the next bid higher than your Starting Bid will be $5 higher than your bid, so your counter bid would need to be $5 higher, so it is best always to enter a range in $10 increments when bidding on a budget. And if you select this method of bidding, our system will automatically enter your next bid if you are outbid and will never exceed your Maximum Bid amount.

    Being a winner is easy! Auction winners receive an email with a link to pay for their winning auction and then a link to a travel voucher Adobe PDF worth the value of their bid, plus any taxes. Certain advertisers that offer private homes or condominiums may have additional charges such as cleaning fees. Some hotels have resort or parking fees, which will be identified in the auction listings.

    All winning bidders will receive an email at the close of the auction to make a payment for the specific auction they won. Florida Vacation Auction only accepts credit cards as payment. Travel vouchers are redeemable for a minimum of 90 days and can sometimes be used for up to 6 months or even one year; details will be stated inside the listing. Individual advertisers, not Florida Vacation Auction, determine the redemption dates for any winning auction voucher. When bidding on specific auctions, bidders accept the terms and conditions for that auction. All reservations that require reference and redemption of the Florida Vacation Auction voucher are booked directly with the hotel or resort. Florida Vacation Auction attraction ticket vouchers are redeemable at the advertiser’s box office. Attraction tickets may be mailed with the Florida Vacation Auction voucher subject to the advertiser’s option. Florida Vacation Auction vouchers have defined redemption dates per advertiser and are non-transferrable. Any extensions to the redemption dates or transfers to a third party are at the supplier’s or advertiser’s discretion.

    Buying Direct

     

    You can book your Florida hotel, resort, and attractions from our advertiser’s special Buy Direct offers for those not wanting to participate in the auction process. These special offers are part of every advertiser’s offer during their four-week listings, and no registration is required. All you need to do is click on the Buy Direct button or text link below our chat box that lists the Buy Direct From price and a new window will open directly to the advertiser’s website so you shop for the best available rates and special offers from Florida’s best hotels, resorts and area attractions! This is also the preferred method if your vacation plans require specific dates as our auction vouchers are subject to availability on a date range.
