How to Bid on Priceline aka Name Your Own Price


 

Have you ever bid successfully on Priceline Hotels and “Named Your Own Price”? I do this all the time. In fact, it is one of my favorite websites to book travel through.

I often use this to book hotels and occasionally I use it for flights. Here are a few of the deals I have gotten.

  • $45 a night at Courtyard Marriott in Jackson Mississippi
  • $33 a night at Hilton Garden in near Sea World, Orlando
  • $40 a night at Holiday Inn in Tallahassee

 

How to Bid on Priceline aka Name Your Own Price

When you are bidding on the first page it will pop up a box that tells you if there is next to no chance of that bid being accepted. So, if for a $30 bid it says this, I bump it up in $5 increments until it takes that box away. So, lets say at $45 it took the box away, now I am going to start reducing it by $1 until it pops up again. Now I am at $42 when the warning pops back up, so I bid $43 and I usually get it.

It’s that easy!

For a while they took away the option to Name your own Price, but they quickly added it back. I guess they realized that was a mistake.

Do you have any tips for naming your own price on Priceline? I would love to hear your tips!

    I feel like I have been very successful with Priceline in the past. Have not used it in years. Paid as low as $16 for a night in Kissimmee and $24 for a few nights in Ft. Lauderdale. Paid $45 for a 5* place in Tampa and then got free drinks and a meal when my room was not ready. Sweet.
