Summary of Winning Bids on Priceline/Hotwire et al

Recommended Posts

CD, just noticed we are both sailing on 12/9 from Port Everglades, but I'm on Silhouette. Can't wait to hear about Edge.

I'm back on these boards after about a 10 year absence while I worked with Carnival and RCCL ships as Port Agent. Don't mind if you contact me for help with your bid at hmw608 at aol dot com.

 

Will do. Thanks

Probably a long shot....but can anyone help me find a real good price on  3.5 to 4 star hotel in Ft Lauderdale for 1 night Nov 14, (pre-cruise). On the Port Everglades strip, OR possibly on the (nearby) beach strip?

January 3, 2019  It was my 9th bid.  I was aiming for the Intercontinental Downtown/Port of Miami which is 4 1/2* but was given the Kimpton Epic.  First time using Priceline, I followed instructions for getting free rebids so I started pretty low.

Just had a quick look around Port Everglades for 3/31/19 and looks expensive, and showing quite a few '1 room left' signs (Priceline)... is it too early to look or are the good deals not out yet or is this a busy time?

What was the date?  Was it Hotwire or Priceline? Was it a bid? These are details that are needed.  Your posting is worthless without them.

Sorry.. I was busy at work and it slipped my mind to include that stuff.

 

March 9th. A Priceline bid.

 

8 ships in port on the Sunday so Fort Lauderdale will be busy.

Was the rental direct with alamo or priceline or hotwire. Did you have discount codes?

I'm also interested in the Alamo price. I'm paying $40 thru Costco.

I would not narrow my search to just the port area. See if you can get a cheap rental car then you are free to expand your search area. You can drop the rental off near the port and take the shuttle to your ship. I just found a 95% recommended on hotwire for $112 on 3/31. Its inland in the Sunrise-Plantation-Davie area but it looks like a safe bet.

Just rechecked my reservation to make sure I am being accurate. I booked direct with Alamo for $27. I did not use any promo codes. I pick up at FLL and drop off at Port Everglades.

It is a long thread so a basic noobie question

 

where do you go to find deals to bid on

 

how many sites offer these bid deals?

 

only looking for Florida Staycation or cruises to and back to Florida ports.

 

thanks!
