I also have had good luck with SkyAuction.com. I've successfully bid on
flights from San Diego to Madrid and Los Angeles to Honolulu. Both times
beating any published or discount fare available. However, lately I've
noticed an increase in fees and/or taxes attached to the auction items.
For example, many of the hotel or package trips state that $190 per guest
will be added to the winning auction price. Also, look carefully at where
flights may originate and end. If you desire to fly out of a different
city, although offered, it may cost an additional fee. An extra fee may
also be added if you choose to fly on the weekend.
Once these fees are considered, published and discount fares are noted, and one doesn't succumb to auction frenzy, then SkyAuction.com can be a true moneysaver.
