A rate's relative competitiveness in an auction as compared to other partners' rates for the same hotel stay.
The buckets are:
- Lowest Tied: Partner is within 2% of the lowest price but so are one or more other partners.
- Not Lowest: Partner isn’t within 2% of the cheapest price. Therefore, at least one other partner in the auction has a lower price.
- Lowest Unique: Lowest price in auction, including only partner in auction. This was formerly known as the "beats" price bucket.
- Unknown: Bid is below reserve.
