About Inspirato 🏖️
Inspirato is a luxury hospitality company that manages, staffs, and maintains a portfolio of branded luxury vacation homes and partner hotels and resorts. They offer charity auction travel packages through Inspirato for Good, which aims to create unforgettable experiences for donors and generate higher bids for nonprofit fundraisers. The process is commitment-free, and beyond a modest reserve price, nonprofits receive the entire winning bid amount.
How it works 🔎
Each travel package added to an auction has a reserve price set by Inspirato.
If bids on the travel package exceed the reserve price, the nonprofit organization running the auction receives the entire profit beyond the reserve price.
If successfully sold, the winner of an Inspirato travel package will receive:
An Inspirato luxury vacation, inclusive of all nightly rates, taxes, and fees.
A wide selection of travel dates, with one year to make their reservation and two years to complete their trip.
Expert pre-trip planning, an on-site concierge, and daily housekeeping.
A complimentary six-month subscription to the Inspirato Club, providing access to hundreds of luxury vacation options at members-only rates.

To add sponsored travel packages to your auction, head to your Page or Event campaign. If you haven't already set up an auction, you'll want to head to the Auction tab and add an auction to your campaign. If you already have an auction set up:
Go to the Auction tab on your campaign.
Click on the Items tab.
Click Add item > Add sponsored item.
A popup window will appear. Click on View details if you would like to view more information about a specific travel package.
Review the details of the travel package. Once you've decided which travel package you'd like to add to your auction, click Import to auction.
Before listing, you can add your own description and images, and hide the images imported by the sponsor (Inspirato) if you like.
If you add your own images, they will be displayed first.
If you add your own description, it will be displayed above the Inspirato description.
Please note that you cannot edit the name/title of the sponsored item.
Selling format and pricing options include:
Starting Price – Set a starting price for the first bid. (This is not restricted, but if the item amount is below the reserve price when the auction ends, the item will remain unsold.)
Buy It Now Price – Set a fixed price for bidders to purchase the item. (This must be higher than the reserve price.)
Reserve Price – Set the lowest price that the item must sell for. (This must be the same as or higher than the default item value. You cannot lower the reserve price from the default value.)
Item Value – This is not editable. Indicates the retail value of the item being sold, and serves as a guideline for bidders.
Bid Increment – Sets the minimum amount a price must be raised by during the auction.
Click Save & List when you're ready to add it to the auction. You can also Save as Draft if you'd like to come back to it later.
This is how a sponsored item will appear in your auction:
After purchase 🧳
After the sale of an Inspirato travel package, the nonprofit organization operating the campaign gets any profit beyond the reserve price set by Inspirato.
Inspirato for Good handles the entire reservation and booking process for the winner of the travel package. You do not need to manage travel plans for the winner or manage any aspect of the travel package.
If a donor wins or purchases a travel package through your auction and they would like to contact Inspirato with questions, the Inspirato team will have access to their information – the winner's information is automatically forwarded.
Does the reserve price cover the transaction's processing fees?
If a travel package sells at the reserve price, the processing fees are included. If the purchase price of a package goes beyond the reserve price, the standard processing fee of 2.9% + $0.30 applies.
Do we need to be a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in order to use this integration?
Yes – Inspirato for Good is for use by 501(c)(3) organizations. You can also review the Inspirato for Good legal disclaimer.
Do I need a separate account to manage my Inspirato for Good integration?
Nope! This is a built-in integration, and you do not need any type of Inspirato login or a separate account.
