Every captain needs a first mate. And at Virgin Voyages, the adults-only cruise line set to debut in 2020, its second-in-command will be none other than travel agents.
TORONTO — G Adventures’ agent incentive G-Normous is back for a fifth consecutive year, with more than $100,000 in trips, cash, prizes and extra commission up for grabs.
The popular incentive runs until April 30 and is open to North American travel agents (excluding Quebec). The top-selling Canadian agent will receive the $5,000 G-Normous jackpot.
All agents with a G Adventures Sherpa account are automatically registered. Agents without a Sherpa account must register through their agency manager at gadventures.com/agents/register.
“G-Normous has gained a lot of momentum over the years,” says Aizaz Sheikh, Canadian Marketing Director, G Adventures. “In fact, we’ve consistently experienced year-over-year double-digit sales growth since the program launched five years ago. Our agent partners look forward to it each January.”
Sheikh adds: “As we head into peak booking season, we’re happy extend some great incentives to the agent community and their clients.”
Regardless of travel date, agents will receive a ballot for every client booked on a G Adventures tour, and two ballots for every client booked on a National Geographic Journeys trip from Jan. 1 to April 30, 2018.
A ballot will be selected each week. Winners claim their prize from a wall of 25 prizes at gadventures.com/gnormous.
For the month of February, agents will receive an extra 2% commission when they quote promo code GNORMOUS on their bookings.
Monthly trips (excluding flights) will be awarded to the North American agent with the highest number of clients booked. First time booking agents who book more than two clients are eligible for a monthly random draw to win $250. In addition, any agent who books more than 10 clients will be entered in a random draw to win $1,000.
The Canadian agent with the highest number of clients booked (minimum of 20 bookings) between Jan. 1 and April 30, 2018 will win the $5,00 G-Normous jackpot. The Canadian agent with the second highest number of travellers booked (minimum of 10 bookings) will receive $2,000.
For every private group booking of eight or more clients, agents will receive a chance to win $2,500. The prize will be awarded to the North American agent with the highest number of private group bookings during the incentive period. To qualify, agents must make at least two private group bookings.
The agent incentives will be supported with consumer offers exclusive to G-Normous participants, along with promotional materials and webinars. In January, clients can save 15% off select Marine style adventures with promo code: 18GA015MAR01. In March, clients can save 15% off select Active style tours with promo code: 18GA015ACT03.
