Priceline bidding for car rentals

Jump to last reply

Ok, I think I've got it down and will be trying soon. But just to recap what I THINK are the pertinent facts.

1. When I enter in my price, they show me a total amount which includes fees and taxes. Is that the FINAL, FINAL amount I'll pay?

2. They tell you your bid might be too low, so try a higher one. Should you still just go with the low one? Or are you wasting your time and should go with their suggested one?

3. If I select to pick up at the airport, that's guaranteed, right? Not like after it's done, they tell me to pick it up downtown, something like that.

4. I'll be billed immediately.

5. If my bid is rejected, I'll have to start all over again (entering in all the data on my next bid)?

Anything else I need to be warned about?

Thanks!
