Flight to Europe

So I believe i have a general idea on how the system works, and plan to use the links provided here once i do decide to start bidding. My question has more to do with when to start actually bidding. My wife and I are planning on backpacking for a month through Europe, but not until May of next year. The Hotwire and Priceline bidding systems seem like they are geared towards last second travel. So when should we start trying to put in bids? As soon as possible? 6 months out? Would we have the best luck significantly closer to the date of our trip? Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to BetterBidding!

The 'bottomline' advice is to begin bidding once your plans are firm, while at the same time making sure that you don't overbid. For a more indepth discussion of this subject see the related 'Bid Early or Close to Arrival' link in our PRICELINE FAQ.
