I haven’t done it but I”ve heard it is a pain.  I’ve heard you will get to your destination EVENTUALLY. You have to have lots of time.  If time is an issue, don’t do it.

I haven’t done the flights, but a friend has who told me about her success story. Also, I’ve had tons of success with the hotel bidding.

From what my friend had to say, as long as you’re able to fly out at literally any time the day you want to go, the priceling bidding is a great option. If you have any specifics whatsoever about departure/arrival time, etc., you’re probably better off just booking normally.

I’ve never done the flights but I have used it for hotels and it was awesome. I’ve saved 50% by booking through the site for hotels.

@SuperKate: I’ve heard the hotel bidding is awesome as well.  I wanted to do it for my honeymoon in NYC but I was too chicken.  I just wanted to know for sure what I was getting for my honeymoon.  Now that I know the city better, I will definitely do it there and in other cities as well.

I haven’t done it for flights (only hotels) but I’ve heard it is bad.  You wind up with odd flight times, multiple connections, long layovers, etc.  Personally, I don’t think I could save enough to be worth the inconvinience.

@2ndtime: Since it allows you to pick the class of hotel you want, you can do research on the hotels you might end up with. I’ve never done it for big cities so I knew I would end up at one of maybe 6 or so hotels. As long as you are happy with all of your options, it’s great.
