I've edited my previous comment...

Has anyone succeeded with a non-North American address?

So I tried to bid today and it was rejected. Not sure if its due to the fact that I used my real address (with a space in the postal code) or the fact that I use an RBC Visa, or my bid was just too low. Im going to change my profile to use the CA 99999. hope it works!

so, should canadians be using an american state and zip code in order to bid successfully on hotels in the States...don't think this issue has been resolved...i've entered my full Canadian address, and so far have been rejected on bids..just would like to make sure that it is not due to my "Canadian Address and zip code"

thanks.

Canadians should have no problem inputting their actual address... it is most likely that your bids are too low.

As it sounds as if you have bid this recently, please follow-up your existing Priceline New York City thread with an update and we'll be able to advise you further there.

Thanks.

Welcome to BetterBidding!

The 4* above is a match for the Le Meridien Etoile and that woudl be our best guess. Unfortunately the other two properties have not yet been identified, although i'll add a little caution in regards to the 3* property... as hotel star ratings in Europe are somewhat different than here in the US, and with no amenities shown that property may not be what you expect from a 3 star property.

Let us know whatever you decide to do for this stay or if we can be of further help.

Long time, no see! I am adding a data point for Aussies. I used my Aussie based Amex with the US state of Alaska (AS) as my address and 99999 zip code. I successfully bid for an Amsterdam Hotel.

Just an update for users from the UK (or anyone else!)

I just won a bid via PRICELINE.Com, using my British visa card and a British address.

I squeezed my FULL POSTAL ADDRESS (inc 'UK' and the post code) into the two boxes for the street name.

In the other boxes, Country I left as the United States, for City/Town I entered New York.

For the State/Province/County I selected New York and finally the Zip/Postal Code I entered 99999.

All worked OK with no problems

Hi . I'm really struggling here. I'm from NZ and cant get through the page of personal information eg phone number not being accepted. For the address I filled in the top 2 lines with my address then put in US and California and code being 99999 but now phone number is causing me problems. Any suggestions? I want to make a bid for San Diego in 2 weeks time being Easter. Is this too early or is it fine to bid now? I'

I'm very new to this site. Thanks so much.

Canadian Visa Cards now accepted. I just tried a Visa that previously did not work and it went through.

No problems with German Visa (Citibank) or Mastercard (Barclaycard) using Delaware as state and then full address, adding Germany after my city...

Used a Singaporean Mastercard.

Squeezed all the address info in the 1st line.

Put "Singapore" and my postal code in the 2nd line.

Selected New York for city

Selected New York for state.

Put "99999" for zip code.

Worked perfectly.

Hi,

I am from Australia .I have just registered myself with US Priceline, it accepted all my details no problems at all.

I will try tomorrow to get a room in Seattle through the US site via this site if that makes sense.

Thanks people, you've been a great help.

Hello

Is it possible to book hotels using priceline.co.uk from the UK anymore? In March this year we booked some fantastic hotels in CA USA on www.priceline.co.uk but this address now just leads to www.booking.com. I am currently trying to book a hotel in Brisbane Australia. Have tried hotwire but don't give the option for anything greater than a 3.5 star and only 2 hotels - suspect that the hotels are in the suburbs not in the city centre. Thank you.

Type priceline.co.uk into Google and search for pages in the UK only ... a link to a www.priceline.co.uk page will appear.
