Priceline is your one stop shop to schedule travel plans. Their site provides a channel to book hotels, flights, car rentals, cruises, and hotel packages. It’s hard to think of Priceline without thinking of the William Shatner in the “Priceline Negotiator” commercials. As the ads promise, Priceline offers some of the best deals on the internet for travel bookings. While the site has many features to look up different travel deals, the search filters lack refinement and the kind of usability that would make this site even better.
The Priceline travel site allows you to create your own account so you can save searches and trips. The search engine makes it easy to look up hotels, car rentals, flights, vacation packages, and cruises. You can conveniently save your searches or tentative trips through your account. The site has a flight tracker so you can check the status of your flight. Priceline also offers free mobile apps available for iPhone, iPad, and Android smartphones and tablets.
Even first time users will find Priceline extremely easy to use. To create an account, you can register immediately through your Facebook or Google account to save time. The main landing page makes it obvious how to begin your search. Simply input the information about your travel plans, and Priceline will do the rest. While Priceline has some great filters for searching, the site lacks refined search options that would narrow down your search faster.
The FAQ section of the website makes it easy to look up questions you may have or get more information through self-service. Priceline also hosts social media pages on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. You can get in touch with Priceline directly by email, phone, or live chat.
