Step Two – Find out best no-bidding fare (not Priceline)

Here you'll check fares for your travel dates.

Wiggle room in your travel dates? Remember that Tuesdays and Wednesdays usually offer less expensive fares. Try to include a Saturday night stay unless flying to Las Vegas. Avoid Friday travel to and Sunday travel from popular vacation sites such as Orlando.

Step Three – Keep in mind rebidding rules

Remember you can rebid within 24 hours if you can:

  • Change dates.
  • Use an alternate airport.
  • Use yet another airport in a separate bid.

Step Four – Determine your smartest bid

The facts you gathered have helped you come up with your first impression of a good bid. But now you are going to fine tune it.

  • Come up with a lower figure if you can rebid in the ways mentioned in Step Three.
  • Even lower if you 1) can rebid every 24 hours for 2 or more days, 2) noticed lots of flights with the lowest no-bidding fare on Travelocity, or 3) or are flexible with dates.
  • But determine a higher figure if you can't do any of these, or if Travelocity showed very few flights available at its lowest fares.

Refined your bid? Great. But don’t place it until you’ve read our best tip for placing a low, winning bid:

BoT's best tip

Best bidding strategy—optimize rebidding opportunities.

Bid in a way that lets you immediately rebid, so you can be more aggressive with a low first bid. If it fails, you can bid higher. If it's accepted, you'll have extra money in your pocket.

This strategy makes you an expert Priceline bidder —
  • Make separate bids for each option you have (dates, airports).

  • Do NOT include more than one airport in your first bid, even if Priceline suggests alternative airports.
