Noble Travels Group has launched its latest offering Bid2Travel.com, an online bidding site.

Bid2Travel.com enables consumers to decide the price they are prepared to pay for an unoccupied hotel room within the upcoming 14-day period.
The group, also associated with travel meta-search engine, www.chaklo.com, highlighted that this initiative will benefit the accommodation industry, which on average has some 10,000 rooms sitting vacant throughout India each night.
“Increasing the number of people undertaking spontaneous travel will result in more demand for rooms,” said Pritpal S. Saini, founder and director of Bid2Travel.com.
“I have a firm belief that a room vacant for a night is revenue lost forever. A property/hotel only has a limited supply, so this revenue cannot be recaptured in the future,” said Saini.
