It was funny, Priceline just sent me a satisfaction survey which reminded me to write about this:
I booked a 4 day car at $29. Changed my flight to arrive 12 hours early. Since Priceline allows no changes, I got stuck with a $63 bill from Budget for the 12 hour difference. Ironically the guy from Budget was saying don’t use Priceline, you could have gotten the car for $18 here at Sea Tac. Now, if that was the case why did this 12 hour extra rental cost me $63? To punish me for going with Priceline?
In any event, I absolutely recommend you do not use Priceline if there is even a 2% chance your plans may change.
I was told people who miss their designated Priceline arrival time by 10 minutes get screwed.
Caveat emptor. Vent done. I’m interested if you have something to vent about this.
