G Adventures has launched a new Active travel campaign to support shift in demand and is offering 15% off active tours and four trip giveaways for agents on offer throughout March.
As travellers plan their next adventure for when travel starts, some are planning to swap their traditional holiday options in favour of a more active style break. A recent survey undertaken by G Adventures showed that 28% of British and Irish travellers plan to take an active trip as part of their next international holiday, with 12% saying they would take a more active break and 27% saying they’re more likely to try a new style of holiday than before the pandemic*. To help agents cater to a shifting demand for active travel, G Adventures is launching a month-long active campaign, offering discounts on ‘Active’ trips as well as trainings, webinars and four trip giveaways for agents throughout March.
Whether agents are new to this style of travel, or are experts in all things active, G Adventures will be hosting a weekly webinar throughout March, focused on educating agents on the best active experiences by region. From the lesser-known European highlights such as hiking in the Azores and Canary Islands, to iconic active adventures such as trekking Mount Kilimanjaro and The Inca Trail, there will be tours for active enthusiasts of all levels.
Each week agents will have the opportunity to win a spot on one of G Adventures European adventures, from river cruising in Burgundy and hiking the Corfu Trail to sailing along the coastline of Croatia or the Canary Islands. Agents can earn an entry into the prize draw by attending the weekly webinar. For other methods of entry, agents can visit the Agents of Change Facebook page.
