PRICELINE & HOTWIRE

Originally posted on 2/10/09

I have always heard of people getting hotel rooms on Priceline and Hotwire but I have never felt comfortable taking the gamble on an unknown hotel room. Until NOW! I have recently discovered Betterbidding.com
It is a forum that posts results of what hotels people are getting when they book a priceline or a hotwire room in a certain city or area. If you create a username and ask for a bidding strategy on priceline (where you would bid on your hotel) or post the amenities and stars and price on a hotwire hotel you are looking at they will help you guess what the hotel is. I have booked 3 separate hotels recently and they were right on with each hotel guess. Of course you are still taking a gamble using Priceline and Hotwire but it is nice to see some of the results that other people have gotten when booking to give you some reassurance. All they ask is that you book your rooms through their links to Hotwire and Priceline (they must get a kickback). Otherwise it is free!
