  Discount and Bidding Websites

TravelDepot has created a step by step process to search for airline tickets and find the lowest and cheapest airfare on discount air travel to book your airline reservations. This next step involves comparing your list of airlines fares to fares offers by the travel, or consolidators, websites or just searching these websites for their best offers for your destination.

Once you have the airline's and travel websites best offers, you must decide whether or not to use the discount or bidding websites. This is where sites such as Priceline and Hotwire are important. You must decide if the lowest price possible is more important than a convenient schedule.

USE THESE SITES ONLY AFTER YOU HAVE RESEARCHED FARES. Otherwise, you could possibly, overpay for the airfare that you are searching for.

Before using these websites, you must be able to answer YES to all of these statements:
  • I want to save between 10-50% on airfare.
  • I can sacrifice receiving frequent flyer miles so I can get a cheaper fare.
  • I am willing to fly any airline.
  • I am flexible with my flight times.
  • I understand that these fares are NON-REFUNDABLE.
  • I have researched the lowest fares.
If you answered NO to any of these statements, TravelDepot does NOT advise you to use the Discount or Bidding websites at this time. Proceed to Step 5: Make the Purchase.

If you answered YES to all of these statements, you may want to use the Discount or Bidding websites. If not, Proceed to Step 5: Make the Purchase.

Hot Fares

Use Hotwire's website to find a low price on airfare. Most times, you can save between 10-30% off the lowest listed fares. You pick the dates for travel, and Hotwire picks the flight times and airline for the NON-REFUNDABLE tickets. See website for details.

Name your Own Price

Check with TravelDeals for any Priceline discounts!

Use Priceline's Name Your Own Price bidding system to bid on a low price for NON-REFUNDABLE airline tickets. You pick the dates for travel and the price BEFORE taxes, and Priceline will pick the flight times and airline. If your bid is accepted, you can save between 10-50% off the lowest listed fares. See website for details.

HINT: Do NOT bid unless you are ready to make the purchase. Typically, Priceline will beat the low Hotwire price by 10-15%.
