Frequently Asked Questions

How much do Preferred packages cost?

Each hotel package has a set minimum bid, and pricing is calculated on a 50/50 split of the winning bid amount. That means if just one person places a bid, you are guaranteed a return of 50% of the minimum bid. All additional bids continue to add to your bottom line.

Like all other Winspire Experiences, Preferred hotel stays are no-risk. If no one bids, there is no cost to your organization.

Where are Preferred properties located?

Preferred properties are located worldwide, in cities across the U.S. and Canada as well as popular international destinations. For a full list of offerings, use the contact form below.

How do you determine the retail value of these hotel stays?

The retail price is set based on the high end of the range provided on TripAdvisor.

We have procured enough donated items. Would Preferred have a place in our event?

Preferred packages are meant to complement what you already have. Do you have enough items in the middle price range of a typical auction catalog (between the low-end spa baskets and high-end travel packages)? Offering a wide range of quality items entices as many bidders as possible.
