One practice that has been intrinsic to the evolution of online travel is the rise of A/B testing. Priceline runs many A/B tests on a given day, allowing Priceline to present different versions of the site to different communities of user at the same time. Users vote with their clicks and the winning version of the test becomes visible to all.

More than a million and a half travelers visit Priceline on any given day and these constant tests and modifications allow the company to continue evolve its offerings without negative impacts. Priceline continues to improve its testing protocols to integrate design and copy changes much faster. This makes the site far more dynamic, with continuous innovation a centerpiece to the Priceline customer experience.
