TORONTO — G Adventures has brought back its G-Normous agent incentive for a ninth consecutive year.
The company says G-Normous is bigger than ever before with $75,000 worth of cash and prizes available to its travel agent partners across Canada and the U.S., to thank them for their heroic support this past year.
G-Normous runs from Jan. 1 – April 30, 2022 and agents can win cash and prizes each month, compete in fun community challenges, and go for the $5,000 grand prize for the overall G-Normous top seller in Canada.
“January is traditionally a peak booking month for agents. While there is still lingering uncertainty, we are seeing bookings come in for short-term travel, so we encourage agents to focus on this market – people who are keen to get away as soon as they can and escape the winter months,” says David Green, Managing Director for G Adventures in Canada,
Green adds that he hopes the G-Normous incentive helps agents to inspire their customers to book at a still uncertain time, and shows them how much their knowledge and expertise is valued.
The more trips an agent books, the more chances there are to win a cash prize each month and be in to win the grand prize. In addition to the cash prizes, agents also receive one entry to win a trip each month – drawn at random – with each booking made.
Each month G-Normous is spotlighting a new promotion and tourism board sponsor. January is sponsored by Colombia and focuses on the launch of G Adventures’ Great Adventure Sale, which is live now and offers up to 25% off more than 400 trips worldwide, including all trips in Colombia. Agents also have access to an additional 20% off promotion, available on a selection of tours and exclusive to them as G-Normous travel heroes.
“Our partners are more important and valued than ever. They have been working hard to help customers navigate the ever-changing protocols our current travel landscape presents. That’s why we have made this year’s G-Normous incentive the biggest yet, as a way to say ‘thank you’ for the dedication our unsung travel hero partners are showing daily for the industry we are all so passionate about,” says Green.
He adds that G Adventures has run 2,000+ tours since September 2020. “The current booking window for Canadians is four months and our Book With Confidence policy – which enables travellers to cancel and rebook up to 14 days before departure – is giving people the confidence to book now. The great deals available in our Great Adventure Sale provide agents with an extra perk to pass on their customers.”
G-Normous in 2022 also includes new monthly Community Challenges, which Green says are a fun and interactive way for agents to win additional cash and prizes each month by showing off their travel trivia knowledge, sharing stories, and nominating peers who have gone above and beyond in their roles this past year. Monthly challenges, as well as G-Normous leaderboards and updates, will be posted on the G Adventures ‘Canadian Agents of Change’ Facebook group over the course of the incentive program.
