I would like to bid on a 3 night package to Istanbul at the Conrad Hotel, but I would like 2 of these packages asmy wife and Iare going away with another couple.Does anyoneknow if there is any way in which I could do this? I am obviously concerned that if I win this auction then the same package may not become available in the future.
It takes alot of work for LL to get a hotel onboard and to work out all of the details. I have never noticed a package offered on a one time basis. I haven't watched this particular package but I see that it isn't even good for use until starting next month. I have bought two of the same packages on multiple occasions. While I agree you should talk to LL, I think you can be fairly certain that it will be offered again if it hasn't been on the boards for a long period of time. The properties generally sign on for a period of time, not just a one time shot. Good luck.
Thanks for your replies, I have checked with the hotel but unfortunetely LL have not answered my emails so I will have to check again. Is it usual for them to take so long to reply? I have sent them 2 emails, the first being over a week ago. I havn't seen the same deal available for a few days now, does anyone know the length of time before they get relisted. I'm not traveling until the end of March but I would like to get everything in place sooner rather than later.
We too are traveling with friends to Italy and I have organized our trip with 4 LL properties. In each case, I e-mailed the hotel to ask then if they had availability for two room for the dates we needed and informed them that I was bidding on the LL auction for their package. As soon as I won the auction I informed them that we indeed had won the auction and made reservation. I also informed them that I was going to bid on the next auction for our friends and again specified the dates we needed for our friends. The hotels were very accommodating. All the hotels held the 2nd room until we could secure the 2nd LL auction for their property.
I have seen the Conrad property a number of times in the past, but to be on the safe side, by all means call Nancy Taylor.
