I'm trying to book a rental from IAD in 3rd week of April from Wed a.m to next Monday p.m. - I've been trying for over a month. Both Hotwire and Priceline send me emails saying bookings have been gotten for $11.95 or $13 a day then when I got to bid all I get is weekly rates or pricing of $30 a day or higher. Getting frustrated! Any suggestions?

Welcome to BetterBidding!

The email alerts you're receiving are not not for your particular dates, which based upon the above, i'm guessing are much higher in demand than the dates for the wins you're receiving.

What are the actual dates of your rental?

Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases. (and not the links in any email you receive from either). Please click each of these previous links before replying.

The dates are April 25 through 30 - I've been using Priceline for years and never had an issue until this trip. It seemed odd to me. I was bidding on hotels in Alexandria for a couple of weeks and I got as high as $125 with no results - then I went to Expedia and got one for $80 (for the same trip I'm still working on.)
