Travel: The Internet Man: It's trouble Dutch.

CAROL Vorderman has been drafted in by holiday company, www.lateescapes.com to explain to customers the low-down on the Dutch Auction countdown.

The plea to Britain's brainiest television presenter comes after the company was bombarded with callers gob smacked at the special sale which saw prices tumble rather than rising.

In a Dutch Auction each holiday lot starts at the maximum price and at regular intervals the price drops until it reaches the reserve price.

So the longer the user waits the cheaper the price! Lateescapes' John Andersen said: "Who better to spell out exactly how a countdown Dutch Auction works than Carol?

"She has a wonderful way of explaining even the most complex of subjects."

John added: "Carol certainly knows her sums and she can be confidently expected to help people figure this one out."

Lateescapes.com is staging 10 Dutch Auctions every day from now until the end of February with a reserve price of just pounds 1 on its holidays to the Balearics.
