I have used Sky Auction a number of times and have been quite pleased! In fact I just returned from a vacation where my hotel was book with Sky Auction. Also they have always been accommodating with any logistical problems with my travel plans (eg. They have generously cancelled a "win" I had for a hotel room when I could not find adequate airfare to match). That being said you MUST READ THE... Read more

I have bought a number of trips on Skyauction and have had no problems. Obviously you need to read the offer carefully and often you will find that with their fee and certain up-charges (for special dates or upgraded accommodations), you might not be getting the bargain you had hoped for. But I have done well by them (and vice versa). My most recent purchases were for a week's rental at Fripp... Read more

I have used SkyAuction several times with no problems. I won a vacation to Fantasy Villas in Orlando. The place looked really nice. Great pool, water slide, etc. When I chose the dates(within the period of time stated), I was told that those dates were not available, but I could get Fantasy Villas 2, which is right next door. So thats what I did. When I got to Orlando, FV2 was a far inferior... Read more

First I am not a employee of Skyauction. Just ran across this complaint board. Learned a long time ago people have different levels of expectations. I often blog on internet reviews of services and find most negative reviews are in 2 categories. User error and bad days. While not perfect I have booked over 40 trips with this company since 2006. Never had a issue that they did not take care of. I... Read more

I have heard that they had employees bidding to up the bids. I'm not sure if they still do it. I would not trust them. It is something I heard a few years ago but it explains a lot in my opinion. I also heard they list "hotel taxes" as a way to make sure they make money on the deal no matter what. From my experience hotels charge a tax percentage based on your daily rate not a preset figure. I... Read more

Back in Sept. I had won an auction for 3 days to NYC. At the time I selected 11/5-11/7, but you could have selected any time period through the end of the year. With the recent events that have transpired with the hurricane, I asked if I could move my trip to a later date while NYC gets back to a level of normalcy. I am not even sure if power is back in this area of the city. I did get hit... Read more

We had a problem that was not the fault of Skyauction, we didn't read the terms and conditions correctly. Denise in customer service was great! She solved the problem and was very accommodating. I see all of these negitive reviews and don't understand them. I have been buying Hotels/Resorts, Dinners, and Trips from them for years and have never had a problem. Even had to change a trip to Mexico... Read more

I'm not looking for any response or comments.My sole purpose here is to educate hard working good people.So that know one falls prey to the white collar crime that happens every day via Internet. Let's start off on a positive note for all those that feel they would like to bash my opinion and my personal experience.My very on brother loves them, he is a... Read more

In their contract it states they are not responsible for third parties but what you don't know is everything they do is through a third party !!! they are only a name that charges your credit card. So they can be either nice to you ,especially if you are known to refer or like writing reviews.or if your someone that's not on their nice list WATCH OUT they are computer people and they...
