While looking for a hotel in Toronto, I came across site called Tingo.com The prices seemed great; the filters were effective (eg. near airport, 4 star etc) and there was a lot of choice. Most aggregators of hotel rooms, auto rentals and so on offer comparable prices. It seemed that Tingo was better.
Several points to remember:
1. Prices are in $ USD; if you are Canadian, currently add another 25%. I didn't realize it was in $ USD until I booked the room.
2. The money is withdrawn from your account within a day or two.
3. You can get a refund - always check before you click the confirm button; conditions vary. Your refund is based on the exchange rate at the time so it could be less. Mine was several dollars less.
