Win a trip to Abu Dhabi with Excite’s new campaign

Excite Holidays has teamed up with the Department of Culture and Tourism in Abu Dhabi to launch its very first Excite Edit!

The campaign takes the shape of a magazine style guide that showcases the best of Abu Dhabi for families, culture and history buffs, thrill-seekers and those who like a bit of luxury.

The magazine uses interviews with locals who each bring a fresh and unique perspective to the city, including Paula Tannous, director of sales and marketing at the Fairmont Marina, Abbas Al Alawi, chief instructor at Yas Marina Circuit, Dr Margit Muller, executive director, Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, and Emily Armstrong, marine and environment manager, Jumeirah at Saadiyat Island Resort.

The best part? The new campaign comes with a fresh incentive! The agents with the largest growth in paid bookings will win one of six spots on an exclusive Abu Dhabi Famil later in the year!

The campaign launches Monday 1 April, with the incentive running until Sunday 28 April
2019.
