Name Your Own Price

By mbarry,

Recommended Posts


I am experimenting with the Name Your Price feature on Priceline.com and have been given a very cheap offer of a round trip flight from Chicago to Vegas for $150 on the 18th of December. It says in the information: "If we find an airline that accepts your price, we'll immediately purchase your tickets using the payment information you provided."

Despite being offered the $150, if I pay this non-refundable fee, am I guaranteed to get on a flight on the days mentioned? Or is it possible for me to pay this and then them not able to get me on a flight? I cant quite tell from how it is worded and any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to BetterBidding!

If you haven't yet, please start by reading your messages.

The page you are looking at is NOT indicative of an available offer at that price, PRICELINE is simply asking you to review the information (dates, bid price, etc) before submitting the bid (since if an airline is able to accept an offer at that price your purchase will be confirmed at that time and non-refundable)

However, to answer your question above, if your bid price is accepted it would be for the dates that you have submitted.

Please use the PRICELINE and HOTWIRE links on the board to begin your travel purchases.

Let us know what you decide to do for this trip and how the bidding goes or if we can be of further help.

Please use this HOTWIRE and these PRICELINE LINKS: HOTELS, CAR RENTALS, and AIRFARE to begin your travel purchases
