Excite Holidays has entered a new agreement with hotel distribution company, DHISCO Inc, to bring agents the industry's 'sharpest' rates.

Excite Holidays has entered a new agreement with hotel distribution company, DHISCO Inc, to bring agents the industry’s ‘sharpest’ rates.

The partnership follows a string of recent moves by the online wholesaler to improve the agent experience and create better selling opportunities.

As part of the newest agreement, Excite will eventually be able to offer consultants access to DHISCO’s portfolio of over 250,000 hotels in over 150 countries.

The first hotel chain to sign over in the new agreement is Marriott Hotels and Resorts, meaning agents can now access preferential rates for 49 of the group’s properties through the B2B online wholesaler’s booking system.

Excite CEO, George Papaioannou, said the group is aiming to be able to deliver ‘the most competitive’ options to consultants and ’empower’ them with the best resources.

“We’re extremely excited about offering our agents even more choice when it comes to selecting the perfect accommodation options for their clients.”

Earlier this year, Excite revealed plans to invest in its online presence to ensure agents are able to use its services quickly, easily and more productively.

Among the biggest changes was the launch of a new training and information portal featuring in-depth industry knowledge and guides to help agents sell.

More recently, the online wholesaler rolled out a ‘set your own price‘ system, which allows travel managers to increase, forfeit or reduce their commission during the search process as well as during the time of final payment. Click here for more information.
