INCENTIVE: Intrepid is sending two lucky agents to Antarctica

Intrepid Travel has launched its Antarctica Incentive, giving two agents the chance to venture to the South Pole.

The winners will receive a space in a shared cabin on board Intrepid’s Best of Antarctica: Pristine Wilderness (Ocean Endeavour) departing 2 November 2023. On board the 11-day expedition, the recipients will experience the raw and pristine beauty of Antarctica’s wilderness from glacier mountains to polar wildlife.

Each agent will also receive a $3,000 voucher to be put towards flights booked by Intrepid. The total prize pool is AUD$32,980.

Agents can enter the incentive by watching the Antarctica training webinar on Intrepid’s Agent Hub and emailing the Learn and Earn answers at the end of the video to Every passenger booked on an Intrepid Antarctica Expedition entitles the agent to one entry in the draw. For every 21 day itinerary, the agent will receive an extra entry per passenger.

Yvette Thompson, general manager of sales and partnerships ANZ, said: ‘We’re thrilled to be giving two lucky agents the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Antarctica!

“The training webinar on our Agent Hub prepares agents to become polar experts, but nothing compares to an Antarctica experience up close!”

The Intrepid Agent Hub was launched late last year as Intrepid saw an important opportunity to deliver a better agent experience that would also be better for the planet. The new platform is designed to engage and educate agents by providing a digital one-stop-shop of Intrepid brand and training tools, including the Antarctica training webinar.

The Antarctica Incentive is open to all Australian and New Zealand agents and closes 31 March 2023. Prize winners will be contacted on 4 April 2023.
