Have tried off bidding and on for about a week (not every day however). Started at $10 and in $1 increments worked up to $14 for mid-size through premium classes of cars (I didn't change my bid for the different classes of cars during my bidding sessions since I really prefer a mid-size car for better gas mileage and I've found sometimes the bigger cars are actually cheaper, at least in the bidding process ). In my previous bidding I was receiving counter offers at $18 for most classes except premium. I had a cancel-able reservation throughthe non-bidding Priceline mobile for a premium at $199 a week all in (interesting that this particular Priceline deal was only available though its mobile app). After bidding today, I got a mid-size at $14; total amount with fees and taxes is $154.43 for the week with Avis. Been awhile since I've used Priceline for either a car rental or hotel. Seems as though it hasn't been that competitive for me recently especially given the opaque nature of its bidding process and the unknowns that involves.
