FLL in May

5 posts in this topic

I will be needing a car rental at FLL airport in May.  

Pick up will be on May 18 around 3:00 pm

Drop off will be May around 1:00 pm

 

I haven't ever used Priceline, however with the cost of the rental being close to $200 for a small car, I would like to try it.

 

I have read the pinned post here and Priceline's rules, but I still have some questions.

 

I would like to pick up the vehicle in the terminal.  Would Priceline give me a rental that I would need to pick up outside of the terminal (that I would have to take a shuttle to?).

If I don't win with my first bid, how many factors do I need to change in order to bid again?  Would changing my pick up time from 3:00 pm to 2:30 pm be sufficient?

TIA!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

 

What is the date of your rental return?

 

In order to bid again immediately for car rental bidding you need to change the calendar day of either pick-up and/or drop-off.

 

While off-site locations are possible when bidding on PRICELINE (but a shuttle would be provided by the rental company) i think most of the companies are on-site, although PRICELINE bidding now also deals with Sixt which is off-site, but i'm not sure if their nearby location is considered 'airport' or not.

 

Let us know your drop off date and if you'd like to continue to move forward with PRICELINE bidding.

Tried bidding today.  

I was really low balling it.  Nothing accepted. 

How long before I can try again without changing drop off and pick up?

You can bid again in 24 hours.

 

What were the lowball offers you made?  What is your maximum bid price?  What size vehicle are you bidding on?
