Holiday Swap Welcomes His Highness Sheikh Juma Ahmed Juma Al Maktoum to Board

The Holiday Swap Group has made history after announcing that His Highness Sheikh Juma Ahmed Juma Al Maktoum will be joining the company as one of the shareholders. In addition, the company, which operates a home-sharing system across 184 countries worldwide, will join forces with the Sheikh’s company Elite Partner Investment to expand its operations.

Holiday Swap is an award-winning home exchange platform designed for travelers to swap and host their homes securely. The platform is now being used by over half a million users across 185 countries globally. Because users aren’t profiting or subletting, anyone can use Holiday Swap to save on the cost of expensive travel accommodation and spend more money on flights and tours. 

With the help of Holiday Swap, you can decide whether you want to swap homes simultaneously or simply just host travelers or be a guest. This benefit allows people to make social connections worldwide for future trips, exchange local travel tips, discover new destinations, or visit old favorite locations. This edge is what makes Holiday Swap more than just a home exchange platform but an experience for every traveler who desires to explore the world. Holiday Swap was founded by James Asquith, a London banker who holds the Guinness World Record for being the youngest man to visit all 196 countries in the world.

In one interview, he shared his inspiration in building the platform, “Whenever I’m away with friends, they love telling people I’ve been to every country in the world, which of course triggers questions like what’s your favorite country, culture etc. So I’m more than happy to answer because I think it’s important if you travel to be an ambassador for the cause.”

A high-level businessman, His Highness Sheikh Juma Ahmed Juma Al Maktoum is a member of the Ruling Family in Dubai and has closely aligned his vision with the Ruler of Dubai to put the UAE on the global map through commercial and philanthropic projects. Elite Partner Investment is a UAE-based investment management company interested in technology, mining, real estate, and energy chaired by His Highness, a significant shareholder of the same company. 

His Highness joined Holiday Swap as a substantial investor through Elite Partner Investment LLC in April 2020 and has been instrumental in supporting the platform growth by over 40% globally during the last eighteen months. Holiday Swap is a multi-award-winning home exchange platform that now allows multitudes of users to swap their places with others around the world, significantly reducing one of the highest costs of travel which is accommodation.

People would learn that home swapping exists and is safe, regulated, affordable, and cool through the Holiday Swap. Holiday Swap is the work of true innovators and market leaders, making it one of a kind. And they are now working on the new shareholder’s participation in Holiday Swap. James and his team envision that Holiday Swap would make traveling more accessible and enjoyable to more people through their platform. It hopes to reach a valuation of $2 billion in the process.
