G Adventures expands new collection of tours, extends booking policy

TORONTO — In light of encouraging booking numbers for departures in 2020 and 2021, G Adventures has unveiled four additional itineraries to its new ‘Travel with Confidence Plus Collection.’

First launched in June, the collection features smaller group sizes (a maximum of 12), cheaper solo rooming options, ensuite bathrooms and private transportation, as well as increased sanitization and hygiene protocols as part of G Adventures’ Travel with Confidence policy.

With the new itineraries, the collection’s number of tours has increased to 41 in a total of 28 countries. Departures run up to Dec. 31, 2021.

“The Travel with Confidence Plus collection was created to offer reassurance and peace of mind to travellers while still delivering all the great things we love about travel, from incredible destinations and hands on experiences to delicious dishes and charming locally owned accommodation,” said Amanda Dunning, brand manager at G Adventures. “The great response we have received following the launch of the collection, including many new bookings, is indicative of the desire for travellers to get back out and explore the world while feeling confident that their safety is well taken care of.”

The new Travel with Confidence Plus tours are as follows:
