Your answer to 9. is incorrect. Please read #9 and #10 of the Hotel FAQ for an explanation of free rebid zones, and let us know if you need further clarification. Post your revised answer as a reply to this topic.

To be honest, I don't know what an appropriate bid is for Istanbul because we have very little historical data for this city. I might try something like this:

Bid $45 for a 4* in two of your acceptable zones.
If rejected, exit this bid and bid $45 for a 4* in the other two acceptable zones.
If rejected, add the first two zones and bid $50.

Please remember to start your bids from our Priceline links.

First bid USD45 for a 4* hotel in Istanbul Ataturk Airport (TAV) or Taksim District > rejected

Then made a new bid of USD45 for a 4* hotel in Sultanahmet - Old City or Galata > rejected

Then added Istanbul Ataturk Airport (TAV) & Taksim District and bid USD50 > rejected

Will try again after 24 hours

Please remember to start each new bid through our link to Priceline and do not bid through a Priceline email. I think you need to be more realistic with your bidding limit. What is your backup plan?
