    So we were recently accepted into the priceline.com affiliate program meaning we can now put priceline links to air/rental car promos and discounts on TUG pages!

    We know tons of TUG members and visitors to the forums use many websites to compare airline tickets, rental cars as well as Cruise Vacations!

    For those of you that do if you perform those searches thru the TUG links that will begin appearing on pages...you also support TUG in the process!

    here are two links you can use to search both air/car rentals for your next vacation, and we would love to hear feedback from you on how it worked compared to other discount travel price sites!

    Priceline.com Air Travel TUG affiliate link < click


    Priceline.com Car Rentals TUG affiliate link <click


    Priceline.com Cruise Vacation TUG affiliate link <click


    Priceline.com Hotel TUG Affiliate Link < Click




    note that these links take you to the priceline.com main pages for searching air/car rentals, but provide a tracking link so that any purchase or confirmations are contributed to TUG and thus we get a % of whatever you book!

    For those of you already making travel arrangements, we certainly hope you will use these links if you are a regular priceline.com browser!

    Will do. Can you place this as a sticky so we easily can find the links?

    Nice to see that TUG can get a % off the booking.
    I do have a question as I've never used Priceline. I'm familiar with how it works especially in regards to blind booking hotels which is the reason I don't use them. How is their service if you book through them? There are often problems in using OTA's and their ability to service a problem like the booking was never done or the room has been switched. I'd hate to think I'd be standing on the pier watching my warm weather escape sail on or worse, pay high last minute re-booking the cruise. If this question should be posted elsewhere let me know. Thanks

    no problem posting it here, sadly I dont have a good answer for you for that particular question!

    we didnt want to promote the hotel side as it would conflict with rental ads posted in the marketplace so we just stuck with car/air/cruise links.

    I do not think a hotel link to priceline would have been a problem. Many times a rental is not available in the marketplace that one wants so they then search for hotels.

    I use price line and would preferred to go thru Tug for hotels. Maybe you can put a hotel link in the sticky for us to use if we choose.

    I used the TUG hotel link to Priceline today and used the express deal option and got Doubletree Hilton. I paid, total with taxes and fees, $105.97 versus $221.31 if I directly used the Hilton Honors site with an additional discount I would have received for AAA.

    I saved $115.34 and TUG got credit. I have used the Priceline Express deal many times in the past with great savings and now I am happy I can go thru TUG.

    interesting, perhaps it takes a bit to show up as a conversion but todays report doesnt show anything for us.

    will wait to see tomorrow, but thanks for thinking of us either way! =)
