In this strategy, the novice plays by the rules set by Priceline, i.e., you make a bid and if your price is not accepted, you must either 1) wait 24 hours to bid on the same area with the same number of stars or 2) add an additional area to your bid OR lower the number of stars for your current area. This is strategy involves little skill and while you may get lucky, chances are you’ll get a room in non-preferred area or you won’t get the number of stars you desire or both. In addition, the novice will likely bid on rooms weeks or months before the stay, when prices are much higher.
