  1. Is it safe to give my credit card number to priceline over the Internet?

    Priceline has created a secure environment for credit card transactions. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all personal information including your name, address, and credit card number to prevent it from being read during transmission over the Internet.

    If you prefer not to send your credit card number over the Internet, you may call our automated credit card entry system toll-free after you submit your request.

    We want you to feel confident that your personal information is secure. Your trust and respect is our highest priority.


  2. Will priceline ever sell or give my name or personal information to a third party?

    We respect your privacy and will only release your name, e-mail address or personal information to the airline which we ticket you on. We ask for your personal information only to be able to get in touch with the contact you choose regarding your ticket request and for billing purposes..


  3. What forms of payment do you accept?

    We accept the following major credit cards:
    Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover/Novus

    We also accept debit cards as long as they are branded with the Visa or MasterCard logo.


  4. In what ways can I provide priceline with my credit card number?

    • You can enter your credit card number directly on our Web site using our secure connection. All personal and credit card information is encrypted and cannot be read in transit.
    • You can call us toll-free with your credit card number after you submit your request. Just follow the directions on the site. Please note, we cannot begin to process your ticket request until we receive your credit card number.
    • You can provide your card number to a priceline agent if you are using our Operator Service, (1-800-PRICELINE).


  5. Are taxes included in my price?

    Tickets issued through priceline.com are subject to the same taxes as those bought through a travel agent or directly from the airlines. U.S. government percentage-based taxes, currently 9%, are included in the price you name for domestic tickets, but standard airport taxes, passenger facility charges and/or federal segment taxes are additional and will vary based on the cities you're traveling between. Additional taxes, fees and surcharges on each ticket can currently run up to $22 per domestic* ticket and as much as $90 per international ticket, depending on your itinerary.

    *Maximum tax for Alaska and Hawaii is $34 per ticket.
