Planning a Spring Trip? Use PriceLine.com, Hotwire.com to the best

I was busy the whole of last week getting ready for my parents visit here and arranging for trips with in US. One thing i noticed is its hard to plan for a economical trip considering i have 5 people to take care instead of regular 2. Car trips are economical but too much of stress on old people.

While surfing for good hotel deals in NY, NJ regions, i found that all hotels were priced way above my budget and since it was 2 rooms instead of 1, it went way above the roof. It was by chance that i discovered a website site which help me to get cheap hotels in NJ-EWR region and i thought, it would be nice to share it to our readers.

You can use BetterBidding.com or Biddingfortravel.com to get a excellent deal on hotels or flights. These sites have forums which tells us on the recent Priceline.com or Hotwire.com wins for hotels or flights.

I particularly like priceline.com bid your own price which allows you to tell your own price. I went to Betterbidding.com to figure out which hotel i am likely to get for the * rating mentioned in priceline and i could easily guess what hotel i might end up blindly booking. It worked out well for me since i was sure i would end up in HILTON or HYATT EWR for a 3* bid and i finally got Hilton in EWR for $55 a room instead of regular $150++.

Go thro the forums, read the recent win experiences and read the reviews which would help you to bid and win the hotels of your choice. Plan a ahead and save huge.

    Expedia.com has given me the best travel deal always. They also have Indian service launched – Expedia.co.in

  3. Yes Prem, I have being using Sidestep for quite some time, I found that hotels that is offered by sidestep or kayak is available for almost 50% discount thro priceline.com BID YOUR OWN PRICE. the key to success is to go for higher * star rating hotels and lower bid price typically 45%-50% of the price offered by sidestep.

    you can narrow the deals thro betterbidding.com biddingfortravel.com sites. good luck

    Yes, I have been a loyal priceline customer for a while(almost 4 years). I always get the best hotels for 30% of the hotel’s advertised low. I got a 4* for $50/night in Las Vegas for two days last New Years. Vegas baby, Vegas.
