Priceline Flights Hacks To Get Cheap Airline Ticket

You experienced the first hack when you clicked on the calendar. From the calendar you can see the cheapest airfare and go with it.

The second hack you must have noticed when you clicked on the Express Deals. 

This is an interesting deal, here you will be booking with one of the airlines mentioned in the deal and instead of flight time, you may have noticed “Morning takeoff”, “Evening Takeoff” etc.

The trick is, the exact airline and time of the flight will be revealed only after you have made the payment! 

And wait, this is not all, all bookings are final and cannot be cancelled!!

Remember, I mentioned in the beginning flexibility on few stuff is expected, I was speaking about these two points.

Priceline Does Not Support Infants On International Flights

Strange but true: Priceline does not give option to book for infants!

Booking International Flight on Priceline? Not a good idea if you are flying with an Infant as Priceline does not support Infants on International Flights (As of writing this post).

In domestic flights, Priceline will allow you to add infant as traveler but as soon as you change it to an international flight, it will give you an error in red!!

In the Gif below, I have shown how the error pops up as soon as an international destination is selected. 

Priceline Does Not Support Infants On International Flights

So you will have to buy a full ticket (is that even an option? you cannot but a ticket for 2year old and carry your lap infant!!) or book your tickets from the Airline website directly where the Infant option is supported.

Many people have reached out to Priceline customer care about it, the response is Priceline does not allow it.

For buying international flight tickets, better go for Google flights or Sky Scanner flights. Even CheapOAir is an option.
