At a noteworthy new website, Zicasso, travel agents and tour operators bid for your business. Here's how it works: You describe what you're looking for—flights, lodging, excursions, transfers, whatever—and within a few days, you'll receive up to four competing trip itineraries. You can ignore them (the matching process is free), request changes to the itineraries, or proceed with one (you pay the agent directly). The service works for countries all around the world.
