Excel Travel is a completely independent (i.e. unbiased), full-service travel agency owned by Ted and Joanna Friedli.
Our mission is simple: Together with a team of very experienced travel counselors (average experience 23 years!), we strive to offer you the best service AND best prices (while making the travel planning process a lot of fun)! We guarantee that our prices are the same or better compared to what you find online, and believe in open and honest communication, with no hidden fees.
We save you time, we save you money, AND we make sure that your vacation is everything you had hoped for ? and more!
Time is the most precious commodity for any of us and we are very honored when our clients trust us with theirs!
Almost 500 (unsolicited!) thank you letters from our clients and the many testimonials confirm that we take our job (and YOUR time and money) very seriously.
Ted is a Certified Traveler Counselor and Destination Specialist and the CVO (Chief Vacation Officer).
Joanna is a part-time ?Ballet-Mom? and the one who writes all the checks.
Both Ted and Joanna have been the featured speakers at Brookdale College, MAECOM, Chambers of Commerce, Libraries, Rotary Clubs, Kiwanis, NJAWBO, Junior League, Mothers of Multiples, and many more.
