  2. I have many negative inputs with skyauction.com

    1) They book my hotel wrong year 2009 instead of 2010.

    2) They over charge me for 1 night

    3) it took several phone calls and several email to get them to re-credit me for the over charge

    4) They never return my call although I emailed and called several times try to clear that up

    5) The saving is less then $5/ night for all the troubles I went through. It is not worthy in my opinion.

    Therefore, It is up to you to decide. For me, I cancel the account with them and never want to do business with them again

  3. Sorry, I sill use to 2009 year instead of 2010. This ticket purchased on 2010 year. I just return from my trip from DC. Shoreham hotel is a nice hotel to stay with. I bought the first night using HOTWIRE link. Thanks for correcting my mistake.

    Here is the itinerary

    Depart From

    San Jose Intl (SJC)

    San Jose, CA

    Departs: 03/02/2010 at 12:10 P.M


    Washington - Reagan National (DCA)

    Washington, DC

    Arrives: 03/02/2010 at 10:13 P.M (with 45 minutes stop over Minneapolis St Paul Intl (MSP)

    both ways)

    Return 03/07/2010


    Washington - Reagan National (DCA)

    Washington, DC

    Departs: 03/07/2010 at 6:40 A.M.


    San Jose Intl (SJC)

    San Jose, CA

    Arrives: 03/07/2010 at 11:28 A.M

    Airline Ticket Cost: $170.00 (USD) per ticket

    Airline Ticket Taxes and Fees: $39.55 (USD) per ticket

    Number of Tickets: 1

    Airfare Subtotal: $209.55 (USD)

    Total Trip Cost: $209.55 (USD)

    I don't know exactly how much I saved, must be between over $120 - $150 because I bought my ticket only couple days before my departure day. This is a last minutes planning to go with my son to see DC. One nice thing I learn thru this bidding is PRICELINE gave me an option to send email to 4 other persons who may want to accompany me on this trip with the same intinerary and the same pricing. As a result, my son cancelled his booking with Southest airline and was able to buy his ticket $100 cheaper.

    We did have a good time there. Now I need to learn how to bid air ticket for international travel. I will ask for your help soon. Please feel free to edit my post so that it is clear to other member to read.

  4. A fews day ago, I was not succeed in bidding (up to $130) these areas as well. I know there is a dental conference will take place in convention center in the first week of March. Therefore, I checked with HOTWIRE website and decided to get a room for ouselves there. We are leaving for DC tomorrow. You still have sometimes, so you can take your time in bidding thru PRICELINE or you can check with HOTWIRE to see if any good hotel to come up for your days. Good luck

  5. I need a quick 1 night in DC for Dupont circle- embassy row area for 2adult

    check in 3/2/10 check out 3/3/10

    Hotwire show Amenities:

    4 * hotel ($ 148/night) Fitness center, Pool, Restaurant, High-speed internet, Business center, Spa

    3.5*hotel ($107/ night) : Restaurant, business, highspeed internet

    From your listing list, my guess is the 4* hotel could be (Omni shoreham) and 3* ( crown plaza). What is your inputs?

    BY the way I use your link to purchase the air ticket. I wonder if I should put it here as well.

  6. I am looking hotel stays for my sister. Can you please help identified which hotels it is for staying from 8/6/09 to 8/13/09 for 2 adult and 1 child

    1) 4-star hotel in South Hotel Zone

    Cost $71/night, best value

    amenities: Resort, beach front, Fitness center, pools, Restaurant,business center, High-speed internet access, Tennis near by and spas services.

    No trip advisor rating

    I am not sure if it is a Hiltons. I don't see children icon. Could it be the Omni hotel

    2) 4-star hotel in Cancun City Center Vicinity. Hotel

    Cost $72/ night, best value

    amenities: Beach front, Fitness center, pools, Restaurant, business center, High-speed internet access, Tennis near by and children activities program

    My guess is the Inter continental presidential hotel. Please let me know your opinions



  7. I get Hotwire specials emailed to me.

    There are always great specials but when i click on "show me", the price jumps $10-20 more once i have clicked on the special. For example just this morning i get an email that there is 4 star hotel in waikiki marina for $109 but once i clicked "show me" the price jumped to $119.

    Isn't this false advertising?? :)

    I received the same email. I think it depends on which day you book your hotel stay. Plus total number of occupant in the room also affect the price . I noticed that most of the time the rate I receive through notified email from hotwire only applies when booking for 2 occupants in the room.

  8. Are you looking for a 40% discount to an all-in price (~$475 all-in) or from the base price ($285 discounted base + $316 taxes = $600 all-in)

    Please use these PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links to begin your travel purchases.

    Thanks for your response. I tried to bid tickets for Sydney trip or Cancun trip since Febuary, but not successful. I missed my chance to buy 4 tickets when it went on sale in early February. Therefore, I though I may get a good deal with Priceline bidding

    I am now changing my destination to Hawaii this summer. (Save my Cancun trip for next year). At first, tried price line bidding several times for SFO- HNL and SJC-HNL but not successful like others who posted their wining here. Still learning how to bid air ticket using PRICELINE link here. Keep getting message (unsuccessful bidding) and offered me the ticket price it found for me.

    Can you please clarify one thing so that I understand better. When bidding for air ticket (international and dosmestic), should I bid 40% less the base price only or should I bid 40% less the total all in price ( base price plus tax)

  9. Hi,

    I would like advice on obtaining the cheapest fare on a plane ticket from SFO to Sydney , (australia) leaving 6/12/09 and return 6/26/09 or 6/6/09 (departure) and return 6/26/09. The lowest fare I can find at this point is $792.14 r/t (airfare $476 + $316.14 taxes) on United air com. I would like to get a 40% discount if possible by going the PRICELINE bidding route.

    All suggestion is highly appreciated
