TORONTO — G Adventures is making a big push for its marine trips this month with a 15% off sale, a bonus 2% agent commission and the chance for agents to earn a spot on their own sailing trip.
According to national sales manager Sean Russo, the company’s Marine travel style has been popular for bookings, with sales for Canada more than doubling in interest year-on-year for the month of January at 36% of new bookings for January 2021, versus 16% in January 2020.
“People like the idea of travelling in their own floating ‘bubble’ as health and safety precautions continue to factor into travellers’ holiday choices, so we’re also seeing increased interest in agent-led private group bookings on our water-based tours,” he said. “Our Marin trips take people away from the trodden tourist routes and out to remote islands and spaces, plus travellers can rest assured we have them covered onboard with our enhanced Travel with Confidence health and safety policy.”
Itineraries with 15% off include sailing trips in the British Virgin Islands, Canary Islands, Croatia, Cuba, Greece, the Maldives, Montenegro, Sri Lanka, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, and Thailand, plus adventures by boat in the Galapagos Islands as well we river-based experiences in the Amazon, Burgundy and along the Mekong. Trips can be booked up until 11:59 p.m. EST on Feb. 28, 2021 and are available for travel up until June 30, 2022.
Example Marine itineraries that are included in the sale include: the 10-day ‘Sailing Greece’ now priced from $1,742 pp; the eight-day ‘Sailing St. Lucia & The Grenadines’ now priced from $2,124; the 10-day ‘Mekong River Encompassed’ now priced from $2,209; and the eight-day ‘Galapagos – Central and East Islands aboard the Reina Silvia Voyager’ now priced from $6,459.
For agents, a bonus 2% commission is being offered on all new bookings made during the month of February as part of the G-Normous agent incentive.
Plus, G Adventures is also giving one agent the opportunity to experience a sailing trip by earning a spot on the Sailing St Lucia and The Grenadines itinerary. Agents will be awarded points for sharing the Marine Sale on their social channels. They can also find more information on Marine trips as well as ways to win on the Agents of Change Canada Facebook group where they can ask questions to G Adventures’ team of global purpose specialists.
