Priceline says it varies by airline but you should be able to review the fare rules pre-purchase on the contract form.
I did a rather thorough search on Priceline and I found no Zecher of that policy.

Seems like no free cancelation through priceline.
Kayak books through vayama and they want $50 to cancel by tom 7pm central

That I'm aware of. That's the airlines cancelation policy. (Probably 24 hours [if it would be an American airline]).

What I was talking about is Pricelines cancelation policy which seems to be non-existent.

+1

I've had bad CS experiences with Vayama and 7CT wouldn't help me anyway.

it doesn't seem to be working with a 24hr stopover in LHR on the way back.
would someone still be able to check luggage on the way back or would the luggage have to go to oslo?

anyone found somewhere to book it on a website that can cancel till tomorrow NIGHT?

I would assume b/c you are switching from virgin to BA you might need to pick up your luggage.

I searched using kayak.

Some flights kayak wanted to book for me through Vayama and there was a $50 cancellation till tom 7pm.

Some flight it sent me to expedia to book on their website ($7 ticketing fee per ticket)
On expedia website it said 24 hr free cancellation but when I called them they told me till 11:59pm PT tomorrow.
(online when I hit cancel it says I have till Sep 8 11:59 pm)

I was able to cancel within 24hrs during the priceline glitch a couple of months ago, think it was with Alitalia.
