Excite Holidays: “2019 is our year”

Curious about what Excite Holidays have planned for 2019? Here’s what they have to say.


Our new year’s resolution? We don’t need one.

It’s a new year, but we are the same Excite Holidays. Made for Agents.

We are the same Excite Holidays that is committed to providing our agents with better rates, better product and a better experience. The same Excite Holidays that gives agents booking security with zero credit card fees, control with FlexiComm, 24/7 customer service and rewards for every booking made.

2018 was a huge year. We expanded our offering to more than 400,000 hotels and 100,000 activities, we built and launched our own API connection, celebrated the first anniversary of our expansion into the USA, released our first brand video “Where do you want to go” and continued to streamline our platform.

As big as 2018 was, it will pale in comparison to what we have planned for 2019. We are set to launch into Europe in the first half of the year. We are launching a brand new booking platform that will be best in market. We will continue to produce industry-leading content for agents, and extend our product offering in ways that we have never done before. Our new product offering is going to be a game changer for agents. Watch this space.

All of this is driven by an unwavering commitment to our agents across the globe and a thirst for innovation that hasn’t slowed in 17 years of being independently owned and operated.

2019 is our year. We have always done things differently. We got here by making bold choices, and we will continue to do so into the future. Everything we do has a reason behind it. Most importantly, we have got your back. You, our agents, are and always have been our number one priority.

Big Fat Agent Wrap

We’re so excited it’s Friday we’ve poured ourselves a glass of the semi-stale bubbles in the fridge. Here’s hoping it doesn’t give us alcohol poisoning.
