TORONTO — Agents can now apply for The Intrepid Group’s four travel agent fam trips in 2019, to Mexico, Kenya, Indonesia and Nepal.
The first trip, Intrepid Travel’s Mexico Real Food Adventure, departs June 9, followed by Peregrine Adventures’ Indonesian Island Cruise departing July 28.
Next up is Intrepid’s Kenya Wildlife Safari departing Oct. 6.
The Nepal fam is being offered as part of the Group’s new three-month ‘Purpose Driven Agent Incentive in the Americas’ campaign, which rewards agents for “selling, leading and travelling with purpose”. Running from Feb. 1-April 30, the campaign awards agents with one Purpose Point for every client booked on one of Intrepid Group’s 2,700 sustainable tours through the brands Intrepid Travel, Peregrine Adventures and Urban Adventures.
The top 30 agents will receive monthly prizes focused on Intrepid’s sustainable travel experiences around the world. At the end of the three months, the top 10 agents who accumulate the most Purpose Points will win a free trip to Nepal, led by Intrepid Group’s Co-Founder Geoff Manchester and Shayna Zanad, the company’s head of business development for the Americas. The trip will depart Nov. 3, 2019 and include hiking and a cooking class with ‘Seven Women’, a social enterprise that benefits 1,000 disadvantaged women in Nepal.
“We want travel agents to experience Intrepid Group’s diverse range of product – whether wildlife, cruise, food or community-based tourism – not only so they better understand the experiences offered on each trip, but so they can visit a new destination in a sustainable, experience-rich way,” says Zand. “We’re incredibly excited to change the way our travel agents see the world, helping them realize their travel dreams this year with four completely different adventures, on different continents.”
Zand also noted that sustainable tourism is exceeding expectation, thanks in large part to the hard work of travel agents.
“Last year, industry growth exceeded our already-high projections, growing by 46% in a year, proving that North American travel agents and customers are becoming savvier about sustainable tourism and seek out companies who show real commitment to being a responsible business and a force for good.”
The fam trips are open to registered travel agents in The Americas. To apply, agents must apply and attend the mandatory webinar that is linked to the fam trip of choice.
Following the webinar, travel agents must fill out the required post-webinar quiz and follow Intrepid Group Insiders on Facebook. Other terms and conditions apply.
