G Adventures kicks off 2021 with massive deals and $1 deposits

G Adventures is kicking off the New Year with some massive deals for those spending their January piecing together their far-flung travel plans.

Agents can save their clients up to 30 per cent plus offer $1 deposits and 21 per cent off My Own Room options. The sale includes 450 tour options across G Adventure’s 18-to-Thirtysomethings, Active, Classic, Family, Local Living, Marine, Rail and Wellness travel styles.

Running until 11.59pm EST on 31 January 2021, the discounts are available on tours departing between 1 January 2021 and 30 June 2022.

Nab your client a once-in-a-lifetime trip like traversing the Arctic aboard G Expedition, sailing in Cuba and Greece, taking a wildlife-focused tour in the Amazon jungle, and hiking epic trails in Peru and Patagonia.

For those looking for an adventure with a slower pace, the Local Living travel style means only unpacking once and truly getting to know a place and its local people.

All bookings made during sale benefit from G Adventures’ flexible ‘Book with Confidence’ policy, which enables travellers to cancel and rebook their trip up to 30 days before departure.

Not to mention, all G Adventures trips feature heightened health and safety measures as part of the Travel with Confidence policy, and a number of trips featured in the sale are included in the Travel with Confidence Plus collection, which offers additional physical distancing.

David Green, vice president of commercial at G Adventures, said recent sales indicate there is pent-up demand amongst travellers, and the launch of The Great Adventure Sale gives agents the opportunity to capture bookings while travellers look to lock in their next holiday.

“We’ve also introduced a number of policies to help agents reassure travellers and to offer maximum flexibility during these changeable times,” he said.

“Agents can help travellers feel confident booking their next trip with the reassurance and peace of mind that they can change the date should they need to further down the line.

“Our advice to travel agents, if they haven’t already done so, is to start marketing to their clients now.

“We’ve seen an increase in bookings and now is the time for agents to be actively promoting travel again to hold on to their share of the pie.”

“As a starting point, for any traveller who has a Future Travel Credit (FTC), now is the time for those credits to be used to take advantage of both The Great Adventure Sale prices and the added flexibility that comes with using FTCs during the sale.”
