Can you sell a Priceline hotel reservation on ebay?

Jump to last reply

I'm sorry if this is way off topic. I used Priceline for the first time last week to purchase a hotel in Rome because all the hotels are so expensive. I put in 100 euro and that I wanted a hotel in the historic center. I honestly didn't think I would get any bites, but sure enough I did. Now I have a reservation for 2 nights at the Hotel Terminal. I checked the reviews on tripadvisor and they don't look too great. My husband and I decided that we do not want to stay there. We are going to eat the cost and rent an apartment for 3 nights instead.

Okay, now onto my question. I understand that we are totally at fault and that the reservation cannot be cancelled, as I read through Priceline's terms and conditions before I made any moves. We accept that we will just have to lose the money. However, a coworker suggested perhaps putting the hotel reservation up for bid on ebay and try to recoup some of the money back. Can this be done? And if so, do I just call the hotel and change the reservation so its in someone else's name?

Thanks!
Tracy
