Brian Tan, Founder and CEO of Zicasso, stopped by our New York office to give us the low-down on his brainchild - a travel engine suited for the luxury market. From hand-picked travel specialists to private reviews, Zicasso is designed to bring travel agents and luxury clients together for a personalized experience.
Upon visiting Zicasso.com, potential travelers fill out a form describing their ideal vacation. They will receive two or three itineraries, providing the option to choose which specialist best fulfills their needs. For those who need a bit of inspiration, there are also plenty of pre-crafted luxury tours to choose from. Think exclusive excursions and exotic destinations with a private tour guide on hand. We hear foodies will love the newest addition – “Italy for Chocoholics” – an 8-day trip offering adventurers the chance to indulge at Eurochocolate, Italy’s biggest chocolate festival.
According to Brian Tan, both travel professionals and travelers will benefit from the Zicasso experience. He says agents affiliated with Zicasso receive increased bookings, higher sales, and more time for selling and specialization. Travel professionals are carefully screened by Tan and his team to ensure that travelers receive top-notch customized itineraries and customer service. There is no upfront fee for using Zicasso. Once a match is made, the rest of the transaction takes place completely between the travel agent and client. For more information on Zicasso Handcrafted Travel, visit www.zicasso.com.
