Fantastic deals, easy to use.

Don't know where you are staying before you buy. ...

I first heard about this site from a review I read here on Ciao. When I decided to take a short break to London I decided to take a chance and give it a try. I couldn’t beat the price that I was offered, nor could I get anywhere near it so I am here to encourage you to try it too. ** Idea Behind...

Cheap tickets, 'name your own price'

Strict no-change policy

Priceline is a brand new concept in the UK. Customers actually name their own price for airline tickets, hotels and car hire. Can't be true surely? I mean how can they let us, the consumer name our own price? There has to be a catch? So - 'name your own price' - Yes, you do! I have used both the...

I got a really good deal - instant fan!

Takes a bit of nerve!

Whilst Annabella Marr may be the mother of Amanda's mother, Necessity is certainly the mother of bold experimentation. Allow me, if you will, to explain! Amanda's grandparents are about to celebrate 60 years of marriage and have invited us to join them in this happy occasion. There's a problem...

Whilst priceline does allow you to make flight bookings and normal hotel reservations, I only use it for the "Name Your Own Price" functionality. The way it works is that you pick a city, an area in that city and a star rating. You then offer a price that you would like to pay for a hotel that...

Yup, we've all seen the "amusing for the first three times only" adverts plastered on our tv screens. Those darling customers who really would settle for less if it meant a lower price - shame it's not like that in real life - Every flight I'm on there's always a nanny screaming at the hostess...

Good

Could get discounted tickets

Might not be able to get discounted tickets

You may have seen a rather comical television commercial advertising this new Internet service. The gimmick is very simple - name your own price for airline tickets. The advert shows lots of silly oafs who thought that because they got a cheap airline ticket, then they would have to load their...

“It really is that cheap”

published 12/03/2001

Easy to follow, hopefully cheap!

Time consuming

Yes, you've seen the adverts, the people sitting on each other's laps on the plane, the guy wrestling with the cleaner for the mop, the family trying to get into the wreck of the car instead of the stunning motor they have hired... Well, I'm afraid I have fallen for the advertising gimmics yet...

Cheap - at the cost you want

None

HOW? THERE MUST BE A CATCH? I DON'T BELIEVE IT! - Are they the thoughts that spring to mind when you here someone say you can fly anywhere in the world on reconised airlines for any price you want? YES - thought so! WELL STOP! I flew to Toronto for £51.70 from London. Not bad! and the Belfast...

Fast, efficient, great value

Committed to buying once you input your details

I was initially pretty apprehensive about Priceline. I was used to buying airline tickets over the web, but always had the option to surf until I found the best deal and then could make absolutely sure that the tickets were what I was looking for before committing to them. So when I heard about...

Thats right you can name your own price for tickets and fly with the top airlines. So, you are thinking wheres the catch? And you would be justified to do so. In my experience theres is not one. I would recommend using Priceline if you are flexible with when you want to fly and where you want to...

Great prices

Can't specify what time you fly

I've used Priceline a couple of times before and was very happy with the service. But my latest experience with them took a bit of shine off of their so-called halo (if that's the right expression). I recently booked tickets to Barcelona for the last Bank Holiday weekend. Since you can't specify...

Extremely easy to use and the updated site is better still. I confess that I really love this site. What a rush when you bid some outrageously low amount and it is accepted by an airline! I used www.priceline.co.uk last year. £7 a day car rental in Spain, flights costing £62.00, high season...

Satisfactory

published 04/06/2008

Not impressed with Priceline at all! Booked a hotel in London for April 2008 and the Priceline cost was literally only a couple of pounds cheaper than dealing with the hotel directly. Once Priceline's 'Tax & Service Fees' were added on to the bill, I was paying almost £12 more than if I had made the booking with the hotel myself. That was annoying - but what was worse was my experience of their customer service. In the end I called a number in the States where the agent tried to be 'helpful' but all she could do was refer me to the terms and conditions on the site. If I can help it, I wont be using Priceline again.

Not for me

published 25/02/2008

This website in theory is great but if somthining goes wrong, dont expect it to be sorted out quickly. i put a bid on a hotel and it was accepted, but found out it was £43.66 chaeper if i went direct to the hotel. Tried to sort this out with priceline but theeir american cistomer service didnt seem to want to give me back the difference, they were trying to give me less of a refund due to the taxes, which made no sense!! i was on the phone for over 1 hour and they had to get back to me. so had a hotel that was more expensive from them and in not the ideal area. they refused to rectify this.
