Be aware that this option of renting (priceline/Hotwire) does have challenges due to flexibility and if it goes bad often you are out of luck. Especially Priceline that holds you to the time of your reservation. If your plane is delayed or you don’t make it on that day, you have lost your money. Definitely be wary. They have the most inflexible customer service and as an agent there is nothing that we can do for you because you chose to rent from a third party vendor. Hope this gives you a more well rounded view of the whole process.
