Founded in 1997, Priceline has been making a respectable name for itself as one of today's most well-known travel sites. Priceline's prices are generally quite low and its flexibility with travel dates, available search filters and Name Your Own Price tool put it a step above some of its competitors.
Priceline Rewards is a program created so that members can receive special Bonus Cash rewards that can be used towards future Priceline purchases. Signing up to be a member is as easy as entering your email address and creating a password and continuing on to make at least one purchase through Priceline while you're signed in. Private Pricebreakers offer deals for rewards members, and must be earned as you go.
Booking a reservation through Priceline is a standard procedure. Travelers will enter their intended dates as well as any personal specifications they'd like to use as a filter to find the best deals on flights, hotels, cruises, rental cars and other activities. We were somewhat bothered by the number of external windows that popped up every time we made a new search, but for those who are willing to commit more time to finding the best deal, these pop-ups actually offer some pretty low rates on certain flights and hotels.
As previously mentioned, Priceline also uses its Name Your Own Price tool to allow users to place bids on tickets and reservations. After entering their travel dates and preferred star rating, if booking a hotel or flight, travelers can place their bid and wait to see if their room or seat on a flight opens up.
