Peregrine and Chimu offer half-price Antarctic trips for agents

Great news, agents!

Remember how we reported on Tuesday that Peregrine and Chimu were launching some really cool Antarctic trips?

Well, now’s your chance to score a spot on one of those trips HALF PRICE!

That’s right, folks, and all you have to do is sell a berth on a Peregrine charted voyage to Antarctica to claim the discounted cabin price.

And, to make things easier for you, Peregrine has launched an Antarctica early bird sale on their Ocean Endeavour charter with up to 20 per cent off select voyages in 2020 and 2021, if booked before 31 March 2019.

One lucky agent and their companion will also win the adventure of a lifetime – a cabin of their very own on one of Peregrfirst-evert ever chartered voyages to the great white continent!

The more berths the agent sells, the more chances they will have to win.

The sale and incentive is open to agents who book through Peregrine Adventures or Chimu Adventures.

“We are thrilled to be giving agents in Australia and New Zealand the chance to experience the area at half price, so they can learn more about this important part of the world while travelling in a sustainable way,” said Brett Mitchell, Asia Pacific Regional Director for Peregrine Adventures.

“Antarctica is not as out of reach as it once was, and the region is no longer for the wealthy. The Earlybird sale means that you could be taking a polar plunge in no time.”

The Earlybird deal is for Peregrine and Chimu trips aboard the Ocean Endeavour where there will be an expedition crew member for every eight travellers and guests can learn about the history, geography and wildlife of the Antarctic from experts in fields including marine biology, glaciology and history.

Each time an agent books a customer on a voyage on the Ocean Endeavour for the 2020 and 2021 season, the agent goes into a prize draw for two berths on select dates on an Antarctica Adventure on board.  The prize will include return flights from the East Coast of Australia to Ushuaia, via Buenos Aires.

Each trip is carbon offset by Peregrine, and the company have a strong focus on sustainability; serving only sustainably-sourced seafood, avoiding single-use plastics and using biodegradable and phosphate-free cleaning products on board.

New voyages included in the Earlybird sale include:
