ATL to SYD, priceline NYOP bidding question

By ramullis,

Recommended Posts

My wife is flying to Australia for several weeks between late July and middle to late August. As an example of rate quotes, July 24-August 14 or 21 (middle of the week) is currently $1,637 including taxes and fees. Is there a legitimate chance of getting a price less than roughly $1,100? This is smack-dab in the middle of winter there, so it should be off-peak travel time.

Also, am I right in assuming that, since available flights out there are limited on a day-to-day basis, she would have a pretty good idea of what set of flights she might get before bidding?

Welcome to BetterBidding!

Bidding in Airfare is a bit of a crapshoot (almost like when to lock in a 'regular' airline ticket... rates at times seem to be unpredictable and illogical).

While historically deals when bidding on airfare has been hard to come by, we have been seeing a few more winning airfare bids lately so it's certainly worth a shot.

You have an almost unlimited number of re-bid options as per this Priceline Airfare Re-Bidding thread (see both the first and second posts)... so you have the ability to start low and gradually increase your bids all in the same bidding session.

Feel free to ask any questions you have and let us know how we can be of further help.
