Trip Request Guidelines

Zicasso functions as a marketplace for Travelers and Travel Companies to facilitate travel transactions between Travelers and Travel Companies. The Site provides tools to facilitate transactions between Travelers and Travel Companies.

If you are a Traveler, you agree to abide by the following Trip Request guidelines:

  • Accept or purchase a Trip Plan only when it has a clear statement of Travel Company Services, well-defined details of Travel Company Services, precise timeframes, cancellation policy and payment terms
  • Ask for full contact information, for example telephone, and address information, of the other party once a Trip Plan has been purchased
  • Use Zicasso’s message system to manage the Trip Request to maintain an electronic record of all written communication between you and the Travel Company. In the event of a dispute, all written communication on Zicasso, including Trip Request, Trip Plans, and Zicasso message communication will serve as the statement of record
  • After your trip, leave objective, balanced ratings and feedback
  • Do not hesitate to contact Customer Service for assistance with posting a Trip Request

Disputes Between Travelers and Travel Companies

Any disputes in connection with Travel Company Services or payments made by Travelers remain between such Travelers and Travel Companies. By using the Site, you acknowledge that Zicasso will not be a party to any such dispute or be obligated to take any action or refrain from taking any action toward resolving any such dispute.

Zicasso recommends that Travelers and Travel Companies involve an outside mediator or use a certified dispute resolution service to help you reach an agreement.

Each Member’s remedy for any dispute shall be obtained exclusively from the other Member and not from Zicasso. You assume all risks associated with dealing with other users with whom you come in contact through the Site and/or the services provided on and through the Site. Zicasso is not involved in the actual transaction between any Travel Company and any Traveler. The specific terms of any purchase agreement between a Travel Company and a Traveler for any purchased Travel Company Services will be negotiated solely between the respective Travel Company and Traveler. You understand that your interactions and dealings with other users of the Site are solely between you and such other user. Zicasso shall not be responsible for any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of any such interactions and/or dealings and Zicasso will have no obligation to become involved in such dispute.

Travel Companies agree to be rated by Travelers along several criteria, as determined by Zicasso. Zicasso provides its Feedback and rating system as a means through which Travelers can express their opinions publicly, and Zicasso does not monitor or censor these opinions or investigate any remarks posted by Travelers for accuracy or reliability.
