Priceline is the innovative online travel service that lets you set the price. The site is used by hotels, airlines, car rental agency and vacation brokers to sell excess inventory.
To use Priceline, you specify the details of your vacation. At the end of the selection process you have the option of setting your price. If the hotel or airlines has available inventory, they just might drop the price to suit your needs.
