  4. chpcruzr, Very good question, actually I am a travel coordinator and do use Priceline for my clients when I can. But, always with the client knowing, If they save money they keep coming back to me for tours, cruises, and other hotel and vacation needs. A travel agent who knows his or her stuff knows the client and what the client is looking for. So bidding is not hit or miss. For most clients priceline only works for Hotel stays, not airline fares. I have been doing this for a 4 years now and have not yet incountered a problem in bidding for myself or for clients. I know when bidding will work and when it won't. It goes without saying for clients who change plans often I do not bid, for those I know will keep the reservation I bid. However, when I do bid, my clients know I am bidding and the price that is accepted is what they pay. I spend hours and hours researching the best deals. Because as a travel agent I do put my clients first. If they save money, they might travel more. Just thought Id put in my two cents. Lisa
