2011 UPDATE – The Contiki Auction site has been discontinued
Website Launches on December 8, 2009 With $0.99 Starting Price on a 14-Day European Travel Package
Anaheim, California, Dec. 03, 2009 – Contiki Holidays, the industry leader in designed vacations for 18-35 year olds, is pleased to announce the launch of its first-ever auction website, which permits travelers to bid on various international and domestic vacation travel packages. Going live on Dec. 8, 2009, Contiki will open the bidding at $0.99 on its most popular vacation itinerary, the 14-day European Discovery. This package ordinarily sells at a retail price of approximately $2,220 per person.
After the introductory $0.99 minimum, hopeful bidders have one week until the deadline on Dec. 15, 2009 at which point the highest bidder receives the action-packed trip of a lifetime. There is no minimum reserve requirement and the winning bid reflects the final price for that vacation.
“Realizing our travelers are dollar-wise, technologically savvy and always looking for fun places to go, Contiki Holidays proudly offers the new online auction service,” Contiki’s President, Greg “Fish” Fischbein. “In the spirit of the Holidays, we bring the gift of European travel for less than a cup of egg nog!”
The European Discovery is a two-week trip taking travelers through London, Amsterdam, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Paris. The trip includes an expert tour guide, transportation, accommodations, daily meals, local sightseeing, and optional activities.
