|The History of
In April of 1998 a unique online travel concept began, and its approach to giving consumers the power to name the price they were willing to pay before actually receiving airline tickets, hotel packages, ect., has exploded in popularity. In March of 1999 Priceline went public on the Nasdaq Stock Market, making founder Jay Walker an instant billionaire. Here was a man with a very clever idea who thought there would be a strong demand for this type of service. He thought right, and the rest is history.
In recent years, Priceline has since become one of the top travel companies in the world. Their TV campaigns that feature William Shatner have been largely successful. Based in Stamford, Connecticut, Priceline has developed a network of partners consisting of most of the airline, hotel, and rental car companies, and in doing so are able to offer substantial discounts on travel packages, last minute flights, as well as large discounts for those that want to spend money within a specific budget.Priceline.com Review
Priceline's main competitiors in the online discount travel industry consist of Travelocity, Expedia, and Orbitz. What sets Priceline apart from these other companies is their Name Your Own Price™ feature which has become their forte. Since starting out as a company that initially just let customers name their own price, they have since expanded into offering generously-priced travel package deals which now give customers another option from which to choose from.
A commonly asked question is "How is it possible for Priceline to fill orders for customers that name their own price where they would otherwise have to spend much more if they were to go straight to the source?"
This is a great question, and the answer is simply this: Priceline has developed a network of partners which allow them to conduct searches for a particular airline or hotel willing to release seats or accommodations at the price of the customer's choice. Priceline then informs the customer on whether or not they found a match, which usually take them no more than 15 minutes. Throughout the year, especially in non-peak vacation months, airlines and hotels are usually never booked 100% of the time. So rather than have empty seats, and vacant hotel rooms, the members within Priceline's network are more than happy to give up these airline seats, hotel rooms, etc. at a steep discount, since this is better than the alternative of them receiving no compensation at all for these vacancies. This way, the customer gets a great deal, and the airline and hotels companies receive some money for what would otherwise be vacancies that produced zero dollars in revenues. Everybody wins!
Airline Tickets: Priceline will book you on one of the major full service airlines - at savings of up to 40% or more off the lowest published fares. Full service airlines are those which provide services such as seat assignments and special needs to ensure a comfortable trip. Participating airlines include the major US airlines (Delta, United, Continental, American, America West, US Airways) and more than 20 of the world's leading airlines.
