The prices to fly to Orlando from NS are quite high this summer. We were thinking of driving to Bangor and flying from there. The airfare would be around $250.00 Canadian ticket (x 4=$1000 savings). This is great airfare and I doubt I could get cheaper on Priceline but......was wondering if we did bid on Priceline if it is an electronic ticket or if they would actually be mailing something to us (which would pose a problem because of the mailing address thing). Same questions regarding renting a car using Priceline? Any experiences? We have used priceline numerous times in Orlando, and even here in NS and always had good experiences with the hotel side of it. Thanks for any help!

I have used priceline twice for car rental. One in Vegas - no problem at all. The other is for Orlando in July, but I don't expect a problem.

My Soon-to-be DH tried to sign up for priceline but he couldn't. They just kept asking for your state and Zip code...

I would appreciate any advice...
Thanks

I have used Priceline on numerous occasions and never had any problem doing this: Put your entire address (street, town,prov and postal code) on the "street address" lines. Use California for state (our country code is CA) and then make up a zip code). Priceline doesn't mail anything, it is all emailed to your email address that you provide. You print that email off with the confirmation # and use that when checking in. So your address doesn't really matter. Good luck!!

Can you book a Canadian airlines on Priceline, or just a US airlines, that has a Canadian departure? My DH once considered trying to book (from home) a flight for departure from Orlando to California using Priceline, but the trip was called off, so we didn't bother to explore the possibility. I would be interested in anyone's (Canadian) experiences using Priceline for flights.
