BookIt.com® may have humble beginnings, but the success of this online travel company speaks for itself. Now a decade in the making, the business that began with only a few computers, two employees, and no office has expanded to a new, state-of-the-art 25,000-square-foot complex with over 300 employees. A testament to CEO Bud Finlaw's entrepreneurial ingenuity as well as his tenacity, BookIt.com® has reached such success in the Panama City Beach area by staying true to its roots.

Finlaw first targeted the Orlando, Florida as the primary market and within a year, BookIt.com® was the first online travel agency to complete one million dollars in bookings with Walt Disney World. With such success as inspiration to attempt to sway reluctant partners closer to home, the company next focused Destin and Panama City Destin areas. In 2004, Finlaw acquired the BookIt.com domain name.

Though a business homegrown in Panama City Beach, over the years BookIt.com® has gained a major presence outside of their home states travel destinations and has branched out to more exotic locations such as Mexico and the Caribbean. Their domestic travel choices also now include cities like New York City, Las Vegas, San Francisco, and Miami. Guests can choose to book ski destinations in Colorado and Utah or plan a tropical getaway to Hawaii or Central America. However, BookIt isnt finished yet. In fact, another core value at Bookit.com® is Were Never Finished. This maxim is even truer today for the company, where employees and founders alike have been known to say If you think that was good, watch this!
