Priceline unveils short break options

Priceline.com has unveiled a lineup of shorter weekend getaways targetting travellers who are unable to take long breaks this summer.

  “Taking some time off is important for anyone who works,” said
priceline.com’s Executive Vice President, Travel Services, Chris
Soder. “For those who can’t get away for an extended period, a good
alternative is to take multiple shorter trips. Priceline.com is a
great place to buy those trips because, with our Name Your Own
Price(R) hotels option, you can purchase luxurious 3- and 4-star hotel
rooms for up to half-off the price you’d pay at Expedia.com or
Hotels.com.”

  Priceline.com’s Name Your Own Price(R) hotel service is different
from other major hotel reservation services like Expedia.com and
Hotels.com. With priceline.com’s Name Your Own Price(R) hotels
service, consumers trade travel flexibility for deeper savings.
Customers choose the dates, neighborhood, star level and price they
want to pay for a hotel room. Priceline.com then works to find a
corresponding hotel willing to accept the customer’s price. Customers
are shown the specific hotel name and location after the purchase has
been completed.
