Hi Beav, good to see you and glad you stopped by the board! (although sorry to see your previous photo/icon missing... did we lose that in a board upgrade??)
There really has not been that much discussion about Priceline Bidding coming back to the system, although the thought has certainly crossed my mind, but i think it is way to early to speculate.
Whether bidding returns or not i do think there are going to be some incredible deals to be had in the not-so-distant future (and are already appearing for those who want to, or have to, travel... or are willing to plan travel well into the future). The hotel industry has been so strong for the last 10+ years, occupancy levels high, and fewer and fewer unoccupied rooms to fill at deeply discounted prices that it has made it more difficult for the opaque providers to offer the value they did nearly 20 years ago when most of started to get involved with Priceline/Hotwire (deals have still been available, but they have not been as prevalent and not the screaming deals they were when bidding/opaque first came on the scene. With global travel coming to an abrupt halt the balance of supply/demand has quickly reversed direction, and once people start to travel again we may be seeing lots of deals that were 'as good as the old days'.
Hope you and your loved ones/family are doing well and that things return to 'normal' more quickly than is currently predicted.
