Travel Tips

Bidding with Priceline.com

It really is amazing how much you can save on travel if you know a few simple strategies.  I have shared these with many of my friends and most of them think it is too complicated and therefore never try.  That is the reason for these videos, to demonstrate how easy it is to save a fortune when you travel.  It really is not difficult.

Part 1

This video steps you through setting up a Priceline account.

Part 2

This video walks you through bidding on a hotel room.  I bid live on a 3 star hotel in Anaheim, CA (Disneyland) and got it for $35 per night.  Check it out for yourself.

Rental Cars with Hotwire

Family travel can get expensive with hotel, meals and car rentals, so it makes sense to save money where ever you can.  Here is a money saving tip anyone can take advantage of to save a few dollars when renting a car.

I tend to use Priceline for most of my travel bookings, but I have found that often you can get a better deal on car rentals using Hotwire.com.  I usually check the price listed on Hotwire and then go to Priceline and bid a few dollars lower and see what happens.  If my bid is rejected on Priceline I will book the car using Hotwire.
