We had a hard time looking for legit information online regarding Tingo. It’s disappointing not having an origin or at least an established date. But, we discovered that Tingo is actually a product of TripAdvisor. So, trying to write a review about them is worth the shot. As their description says online, Tingo is being backed by travel specialists.
How Does Tingo Work?
The first thing that caught our attention was Tingo’s total money back shown at the top right of the page. But the question is, what does it mean? Tingo actually has a service that lets customers look for hotels eligible for a price drop refund whenever they book. And, when the total price of their reservation drops, Tingo rebooks their reservations with the new and lower price. And, that’s for free. In a nutshell, if the booking made had changes in rate, travellers can be guaranteed that Tingo will be giving back the money difference.
Navigating Tingo is easy; they selected powder blue as their theme. This had given a calm mood on the website. Moreover, Tingo even has a slide-flashing of their latest news and updates below. Tingo pretty much educates travellers how they work and even entices travellers to see their top destinations and bookings. But, what actually worries me is Tingo doesn’t have an option to change the language of the site.
Moreover, Tingo is very simple, but if you look closely, the site actually lacks information. It only shows us what we want to see or learn about them. On top of that, it doesn’t give us customer feedback for reference unlike TripAdvisor.
Unfortunately, Tingo doesn’t have a mobile version of their PC services. It would have been nice if Tingo had a travel app that we can track and can notify us when prices drop.
Tingo Reviews of Customers
There had been rumors and even news articles online considering that Tingo is actually a wake-up call from bad revenue management in hotels. Well, come to think of it, if Tingo actually monitors price drops then this only means there’s a problem in the management of hotel pricing. Tingo gave them the notion that rates become better later rather than sooner. Other travellers got the hype of booking what’s offered since it’s a cheap promotion. Now, the question here is…Tingo, what are they doing to make hotel bookings cheaper? Is it legal? Or are they up to something?

To be honest, I don’t personally need Tingo. There are several other sites out there that can provide hotel reservations which are already filtered with the best deals right off the bat. So, why would I waste time looking for eligible price drop bookings, if I can actually make a reservation with the best price but with other hotel travel sites? I don’t need Tingo to keep showing me how much I earned back.
