5 Tips for using BackBid

We love all your feedback about the site so keep it coming!

Here are 5 helpful hints when using BackBid:

  1. If something changes with your future travel plans (i.e. dates, rate, hotel, etc.), you can easily modify an existing posting by following these simple instructions:

    • Log-in to your BackBid Account and click on a posting
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the ‘Edit’ button
    • Make changes and click ‘Save’

  2. BackBid delivers bids within a reasonable distance from your given location. However, if there are specific neighborhoods or a certain distance that you are interested in, simply follow these instructions when posting:

    • Log-in to your BackBid Account and click on a posting
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the ‘Edit’ button
    • Click the ‘Step 2- Your preferences’ tab, then click on the Hotels in specific locations link (bottom right of page).
    • Select distance and areas of interest and click ‘Confirm’

  3. When you receive bids, check out the easy-to-use ribbon bar on the right side of the page. It allows you to filter your bids by quality and distance from your original location. Also, pop open the mapping tool as it displays the actual distances from your original location.

  4. The room details and cancellation policies vary by bid. When you receive a bid, review the ‘Conditions’ tab for the details for that specific hotel property and reservation.

  5. BackBid delivers bids that either provide a better rate or value compared to the original posting. When posting travel intentions without an existing reservation, we recommend having a sense of the going rate/ star quality of hotels in that market. We can assure you that posting a desired room rate of $49 for a 5 star hotel in Manhattan will result in no bids!
