About BidOnTravel.com

As its president Don Nadeau, I thank you very much for visiting BidOnTravel.com.

Above all, BidOnTravel attempts to provide useful and unbiased information.

Because BidOnTravel.com does not sell anything to the general public, but merely refers visitors to other sites when appropriate, we do not qualify for travel agent discounts. That means that we depend on BoT bidding tips as much as you do to get great prices. 

BidOnTravel.com strives to give unbiased information that helps you make the right choice best for you. For example,

Priceline Pros & Cons


That said, we know from years of experience that Priceline can save you a boatload of money! I personally am an avid traveler (to put it mildly) and benefit greatly from Priceline's prices.

If you 1) do the research, 2) use the tips that we recommend, and 3) note the cautions mentioned, you should have a great experience.

You are probably already aware that in our current economy prices can change in a moment. What was a great value three days ago may not be available now or vice versa.

You need to be flexible in order to grab opportunities. That is so very often the key to savings. See this illiustrated in -

The BidonTravel team

Let me introduce you to our great team:

Alek Lisefski offers brilliant design and site administration. Check or his design of the BidOnTravel.com Blog:

Benek Lisefski, the twin brother of Alek, also contributes brilliant design and site administration. In a bold strategic move, I hired both Alek and Benek.

Ellen Finkelstein does not work for BidOnTravel, but she was the impetus behind its creation. I deeply appreciate her inspiration.

Fred Swartz gives wise financial and legal counsel with good humor that I treasure. I actually look forward to our IRS discussions, if you can believe that.

Paul Saipher helps in so very many ways. A Quick Books Ninja he is.

Rick Archer provides great online marketing help, but his primary love is his spiritual site, Buddha at the gas pump. Don’t ask me to explain the name.


Ruthie Hutchings edits the truly elegant pages. Blame me for the rest. Steve Jobs once praised a user's manual that Ruthie co-wrote. That’s high praise indeed coming from a person who would not tolerate anything but the best.

Our great team of blog journalists

Billie Frank and her partner Steve Collins bring immense travel knowledge to BidOnTravel.com. I love them both.

Nick Runkle brings travel experiences that are a joy to read. The photos he takes are often out of this world.

Dallas Terry loves life and it shows in his writing.
