LAS VEGAS, June 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- We all remember the William Shatner commercials featuring Captain Kirk as "The Negotiator." Priceline is the site that today allows you to name your price for hotel deals. Prior to 2015 you could also name your price for airfare. The only caveat was that users were blind bidding on Economy Class tickets and you didn't know what airline or flight you were taking.
Priceline offered a way for airlines to get rid of their inventory without advertising discounted fares. They still offer that service for hotel rooms and rental cars. BizFirst4Less introduced Name-Your-Price bidding for Business and First Class flights. The user gets to choose which flight he/she wants to travel on and sees the lowest retail price that the flights go for, then bid only on the flights he/she selected for savings up to 25% compared to booking directly with the airlines or with the leading travel websites. This is brand new concept.
BizFirst4Less (BizFirst4Less.com) now guarantees users a minimum discount per ticket of $150 off any International Business or First Class published fare. A user, for example, can search and select flights from San Francisco to London with a published fare of $3,700, and bid his/her price of $3,000. Within an hour the bid will be accepted or rejected by the site. If the offer is accepted, the e-ticket will be issued and the payment processed. If the offer is not accepted there would not be any charge. With the new $150 guaranteed discount, that user may later bid $3,550 for the same flights (a $150 discount), which BizFirst4Less is guaranteed to accept.
At the crossroads of travel and technology BizFirst4Less is the first mobile and web solution intended for saving on Business and First Class tickets. Airlines are contracted for discounted fares (the negotiated terms and which airlines are contracted with the website are kept confidential per the agreements). An IBM custom Match-Engine powers the site, and Sabre provides inventory integration and ticket fulfillment.
BizFirst4Less is also different from those "70% Off Business Class" websites you might have seen. First off, those enticing "70% Off" websites generally refer to "discounts" off the highest-priced, most-restricted ticket classes (refundable full fare which run over $10K). BizFirst4Less is offering up to 25% off the lowest published fares found on the airlines' websites and on the leading travel websites.
In most cases, those "70 Off" websites provide no support that any of those discounts exist under any circumstances. BizFirst4Less lets users search for the lowest published Business & First Class fares available, and saves money based on the lowest available fares.
Second point: Many of the "70% Off" websites sell mileage-award tickets they buy. BizFirst4Less offers Revenue tickets and not Award tickets, so travelers do accumulate frequent flyer miles.
BizFirst4Less is a great new way to save on Premium Class seats. BizFirst4Less.com.
