Sunday at your destination, or 8 p. Friday to 4 p. Airlines offer incredible sales nowadays through their own Web sites. Airlines deliver some incredible deals during low seasons times of the year when fewer people are flying for various destinations. Even if no competitive airfare sale is going on, airlines typically cool it with the Priceline seats when their regular prices are at rock bottom.
In order for Priceline to book a ticket, you must be able to fly your whole route on a single, Priceline partner airline. You can change planes, but you must stay on the same airline or one of its codeshare partners. And you must get there with no more than two stops each way. US Airways and United, for example, pretend to be each other all the time.
Priceline counts codeshares as one airline.

Priceline tickets are nonrefundable and nonchangeable. Using Priceline to connect with a cruise is a bad idea.
Asking is always worthwhile. Priceline only books standard round-trip tickets. If one-way fares are very high on your route through the airlines, you can buy a round-trip ticket with Priceline and only use the first half. You can only throw away the second half of a ticket. If you miss the first half, your airline will automatically cancel the rest of your ticket. Airlines hate throwaway ticketing. You want to compare the cost of the total stay with all taxes and fees included, with what you would pay directly to the hotel and Priceline.
Sometimes there can be a huge savings, sometimes not. Go to the New York board on betterbidding. There is a Priceline discussion thread there. You can post your travel info and ask questions and people will help you. Betterbidding also has a pinned Priceline list showing what hotels others have gotten on Priceline. Important things to look at on Priceline Express are the star rating, neighborhood, and guest rating. I did not know it would be The Moderne, but I didn't care.
It depends on the neighborhood and my knowledge if there are any bad hotels in that area at that star rating. When in doubt ask questions on BetterBidding.
Priceline Express Deal Car Rental? - Bargain Travel Forum
Because once you purchase something on Priceline or Hotwire you own it. You can't get a refund. Guest Rating: I won't consider anything less than an 8 out of 10 guest rating. Neighborhood: If you want to stay in midtown, don't purchase something in the financial district or in Brooklyn or Queens. It will be listed. So the hotels are effectively competing to be accepted as a opaque listing. Some hotels stay listed for quite sometime, others do not.
This percentage maybe based on current opaque rate vs the highest rate advertised throughout the year. It may not be the actual savings of published rate vs opaque rate right now. Also, take a very good look at the location maps and never assume you know the boundaries. The boundaries are created by Priceline and not based on any official map. Occasionally there will be hotels are are questionably 'on the border' of another - however fortunately the descriptional boundaries of locations in the NYC listings are quite good.
I've used Priceline and Hotwire in the past. I was very pleased with the price, location and hotel.

- A giant booking mistake using Priceline’s Express Deals?
By information that I read on betterbidding, I was about One bit of advice, depending on how many beds you want. Some give you the option of bed choice and luckily ours did. A year or so ago, I booked for my son and the hotel didn't give a bed choice before booking and he and his friend were unable to even get a cot in their room. So, there's that to consider.
I use Priceline express pretty frequently in NYC. I would echo just about everything Voyagereuse said above.
