Priceline is no longer offering “Name Your Own Price” bidding for rental cars.
They stopped offering the bidding for flights a couple of years ago. Back in my single days I got some great deals via flight bidding, though I also wound up flying from Cleveland to NYC via Cincinnati. Most people didn’t want to bid for a flight with non-ideal flight times and connections, so it’s no surprise that it was shuttered.
The rental car bidding option was one that could be quite lucrative though. I’ve been able to rent cars for as little as $5/day through the Priceline bidding strategies that I talked about at DansDeals Seminars (Incognito browsers, rebid zones, virtual card numbers or used gift cards, etc). Priceline will still offer discounts on Express Deals where you can get a discount without knowing the rental car company.
Priceline will still allow “Name Your Own Price” for bidding on hotels. I’ve stayed in 4 star hotels for as little $30 with that option. But we’ll see how long that lasts…
What bargains have you received from Priceline?
