Priceline.com’s Name Your Own Price and Published-Price hotel services, which previously allowed customers to book up to four hotel rooms, have both been expanded to accommodate up to nine rooms at a time. (8/10/2007)
The company shared that it has made two changes to its hotel services that will enable groups of customers to book up to 1,000 rooms at special discounts and prices.
In another new initiative, the online travel company launched a group hotel booking service on priceline.com, www.findgroupdeals.com.
To avail this new offering, termed as ideal one for weddings, reunions, traveling teams and business meetings, customers fill in the number of rooms they want (between 10 and 1,000), the dates and the destination. Participating hotels then respond with competing rate quotes.
FindGroupDeals.com guarantees that their rates will be the best or the group coordinator’s room is free.
“We believe that many of our customers have been looking for a way to bring along more of their friends and enjoy the savings that priceline.com’s hotel services offer,” said priceline.com Senior Vice President, Hotels, Tim Gordon. “Today, we are pleased to launch these new features and services.”
