Welcome to BetterBidding!

All "name your own pricereservations" hotel or car, cannot be changed or cancelled. However, sometimes PRICELINE allow bidders to change the resarvation, it's rare but it happens. I guess the fee is $25. And you get the rest of payment in credit for a new bid.

But saying that "i meant to bid $65 and not $80" for a hotel don't cut it.

Incorrectly putting in the car type or bid amount must happen every once in a while.

Will Priceline cancel bid without a penalty? What is the typical penalty for a hotel or car reservation?


can you please share the details of your win?

your best bet is to call PRICELINE customer service and ask if you can pay a $25 fee for a one time cancellation and allow you to re-bid for the minivan. Let us know how results as this information could help others in the same situation. If you bid enough, you are bound to make a mistake, I've done it myself by not double checking my dates, or bidding in the wrong zone.

I think they wanted a 1 day rental as a cancellation fee so that would be ~$32. I still wasn't happy but that's better than paying ~$350 for a car I have no use for. They gave me the option of upgrading to a minivan for extra ~$15 per day but I can do much better on my own than paying ~$47 per day for a minivan.
