I first heard about this site from a review I read here on Ciao. When I decided to take a short break to London I decided to take a chance and give it a try. I couldn’t beat the price that I was offered, nor could I get anywhere near it so I am here to encourage you to try it too. ** Idea ... Read review

You won't believe how cheap it can be

AdvantagesFantastic deals, easy to use.

DisadvantagesDon't know where you are staying before you buy. You have to pay at the time of booking

Come on down. The price is right.

AdvantagesI got a really good deal - instant fan!

DisadvantagesTakes a bit of nerve!

"Whilst Annabella Marr may be the mother of Amanda's mother, Necessity is certainly the mother of bold experimentation. Allow me, if you will, to explain! Amanda's grandparents are about to celebrate 60 years of marriage and have invited us to join them in this happy occasion. There's a problem, though. They live in Aberdeenshire (Scotland) and we live in Kent (England). It's a long way to go for a few days. I promised Amanda I'd look into the ..." Read review

Great way to save money if you don't mind a gamble

AdvantagesSavings

DisadvantagesNo choice on hotel with name your own price, no refunds or changes

"Whilst priceline does allow you to make flight bookings and normal hotel reservations, I only use it for the "Name Your Own Price" functionality. The way it works is that you pick a city, an area in that city and a star rating. You then offer a price that you would like to pay for a hotel that matches the description. You have no idea of which hotels are available, so this kind of setup isn't for everyone! If your offer is accepted, you get ..." Read review

Flexibility equals cheap tickets

AdvantagesCheap tickets, 'name your own price'

DisadvantagesStrict no-change policy

"Priceline is a brand new concept in the UK. Customers actually name their own price for airline tickets, hotels and car hire. Can't be true surely? I mean how can they let us, the consumer name our own price? There has to be a catch? So - 'name your own price' - Yes, you do! I have used both the website (http://www.priceline.co.uk) and the customer service call centre (0800 074 5000) to get as much information on priceline as possible! Priceline ..." Read review

I wanna go.....NOW

AdvantagesFast and comprehensive service - pretty much idiot proof too

DisadvantagesOnce your price has been accepted there is no turning back!!!

"Yup, we've all seen the "amusing for the first three times only" adverts plastered on our tv screens. Those darling customers who really would settle for less if it meant a lower price - shame it's not like that in real life - Every flight I'm on there's always a nanny screaming at the hostess for her denture cream (in the bottom of her suitcase) or something equally important. But anyway - the website..... My mum and darling lil sister (the ..." Read review
