To answer you question, I've never used http://www.ticketpilot.ca. But upon seeing your inquiry, I went to look at the site.
This is new for me. This is the first winter I've been using the internet to look for an affordable get-away for a week to a Southern clime.
So far I've done my research at http://www.tripcentral.ca and like the way it works better.
It's very hard to find good travel sites with departures from Canada, in my experience so far.
What I didn't like about ticketpilot is that it's one of those sites that asks me what I want.
I'm looking for a good deal and want to know what packages they have available.
At tripcentral, I can first specify from where I want to depart. In my case it's Montreal...but I don't have to choose between Dorval or Mirabel. I'm certainly willing to take a good deal departing from either one.
Then they narrow your search down to Where? When?= What month and then they show all that's available in that month.
I can narrow it further by having 1-5 star accommodations, choosing between 7 or 14 nights and determining if I want all-inclusive or not.
I saw something similar with http://www.exitnow.ca
If you do use one of them and find it works well, I'd love to hear about it. Best wishes, Suzan
