Nice to be back on BetterBidding again.  It's been a long time since I've traveled on my own dime!


This is my favorite way to use priceline these days... bidding while on the flight inbound...


I had been holding on to a reservation for an Intermediate at Budget for around $34/day after coupons.  Right now, priceline is showing a strange pricing situation where Full-Size is cheapest, at $19/day.


So I bid $12 on Full-size.  It countered with $15.  When I said no, it offered to let me bid whatever I wanted on the same class again.  So I bid $13 and was accepted!


Total savings of almost $100!


Your Offer Price: $13.00 (per day)
Total Rental Days: 4
SubTotal: $52.00

Taxes and Fees: $21.22

Total Rental Car Charges:     $73.22     You saved 75%!*


......and, darn it, I just realized I didn't use the BetterBidding link to bid.  It's been so long, I'm out of habit.   :mellow:

Congratulations on your success!

Certainly amazing how technology has changed over the last decade and that we now have wifi available in-flight!

Nice to see you were successful at just $1 more than your previously failed bid and that you're pleased with the outcome.

Thank you for sharing your win with the board... please try to remember the board links for your future bidding, searches, and travel purchases.

Enjoy the rest of your trip.
