Save money booking your hotel room with Tingo

(WXYZ) - Looking to save money when you next book a vacation?
One website is helping you get the most for your money when it comes to booking hotels.
It's called Tingo and since its launch last year, the website claims to have saved users more than $589,000.
Tingo is a hotel booking site that automatically rebooks hotel rooms at a lower price if the rate drops.
How does it work?
All you have to do is go to Tingo and book a "money back" room. Tingo then watches that room's rate for changes.
If it drops, Tingo will cancel and then rebook your room for the lower rate.
The site would then automatically refund the difference to your credit card.
It's as simple as that.
When you're selecting a hotel, Tingo will also tell you how many times the hotel's prices have dropped in the last 30 days and the average price that it has dropped.
