    Better to bid close to travel date?

    Upped the bid to $120 and added Copley Square - still no takers. I will give it a rest for a week or so and try again. I looked for any baseball interference and there was none. The football schedule is still unpublished for 2010. Not sure about any conventions. I guess I will try to figure that out.

    Better to bid close to travel date?

    Thanks for the welcome. I am very familiar with travel insurance and its limitations; so again, purchasing far in advance is not considered a problem for us. I did do some preliminary bidding today USING YOUR LINK TO PRICELINE and will continue tomorrow. We are arriving in Boston on Oct 20 and will check out on the 23rd (3 nites). Looking for a 4 star in either the Financial District or the Waterfront. I successively added in two other districts with no 4 star hotels. I ended up with a "no success" last bid of $100. I will try again tomorrow and test the waters once more. Budget is at $150 per nite. I have refundable reservations held as a backup, but I know we can do better. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  4. I am 7 months from my travel date. Is it better to bid now or wait until closer to the travel date? I will be purchasing travel insurance, so non-refundable costs are not an issue.
