June 28, 2013 Wholesaler No Comments Email Email

The map search and book feature implemented by Excite Holidays just 2 months ago has been a huge success. It was originally developed to save travel agents time and allowed them to refine their hotel search by location.

Since launch, approximately 60% of hotel bookings received through the website have been made using the map search and book feature.

“With a focus on usability and efficiency, we’re delivering the best online travel booking experience possible for our travel agent clients,” said George Papaioannou, CEO of Excite Holidays.

The dynamicfeature allows agents to search by a particular place of interest or location andsearch for all properties surrounding an iconic beach, landmark or suburb, such as the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Once agents have found their desired hotel or apartment, they can zoom in and view more detailed information about the property, including price, star categoryand any special offers,then simply book straight from the map itself.

Another great feature is the price slider, which enables agents to refine their map search by price range. The map will show property choices based on their desired price range.

Mr Papaioannou further stated: “We have received positive feedback from the agents on how simple the map is to use and how they are able to find all the information they need right at their fingertips. They will find all available information on the map, including details about the property and its proximity to iconic landmarks, shopping, restaurants and cafes without the need to visit other websites and conduct additional research for their clients.”

Agents can use the map search and book feature by logging into For more information about the map search feature, agents are encouraged to call Customer Service on 1300 733 858 or speak to their local BDM.
