G Adventures offers even more booking flexibility

In an effort to provide travellers with more flexibility than ever before, G Adventures has updated its booking conditions, with rebooking of itineraries possible up to just 14 days before the tour’s departure date.

The wholesaler’s ‘Book with Confidence’ policy conditions apply to tours booked from 1 July 2021 until 31 December 2021 for departure dates until 31 December 2022.

G Adventures’ newly appointed managing director for Australia and New Zealand, Sean Martin, said the relaxation of the Book with Confidence policy gives Australian and Kiwi travellers the additional security they need to feel confident to lock in their international holiday dates for 2022, while global supply is still available.

“We want to give our travellers a trip to look forward to when borders reopen,” he said.

“We believe that being able to change their dates up to 14 days before they leave will encourage people to book the trip they have been dreaming of, for when they are able to travel.

“At G Adventures, we have been running trips since September 2020, and have 165 departures in July and more than 200 in August. As soon as travellers are able to travel, we are ready to take them on a life-changing adventure.

“We anticipate demand is going to return very fast, so if people want to book a trip, and know when they want to go, now is the time to lock in those dates while spaces are available.

“Our international travel pals will be booking up a storm, and we don’t want Aussies and Kiwis to miss out on their 2022 adventures.”

For the first time since G Adventures restarted operations in September 2020, Ecuador, Jordan, Portugal, South Africa and Spain appear on the departures list for July 2021.

They join Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Egypt, Greece, Iceland, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, Tanzania, Turkey and the US – all countries that have slowly been opening their doors for travellers around the world who are eligible to travel.
