To celebrate Travel Agent Appreciation Day on 05MAY, G Adventures is awarding Canadian advisors a bonus 2% commission on new bookings made between 03MAY and 15MAY, 2021, for travel before 31JAN, 2022.
Additionally, the tour operator is extending its 15% off Classic trips sale throughout the month of MAY. The discount applies to a selection of tours across the Classic trip portfolio, all of which can be combined with the 2% commission bonus for new bookings made.
David Green, VP commercial for G Adventures, says the additional 2% commission is designed to thank agents for their continued passion, dedication and resilience during the toughest time the travel industry has ever faced.
“This past year has not been easy, but our agency partners have stood by us and continued to inspire their customers to book a life-changing adventure with G Adventures. The commitment of agents deserves more than just a thank-you this Travel Agent Appreciation Day. We want to reward them with some extra cash, and more bookings, so they can in turn get back to doing what they do best, sending people on their dream adventures.”
“We’re through the worst of the pandemic and with more people knowing when they will be fully vaccinated now is the time to be encouraging people to book for late 2021 and to inspire confidence. We’re seeing new bookings consistently rise month over month, and our consumer research indicates that as more people get vaccinated the more they are ready to book.”
“There is so much pent up demand – new bookings are increasing and people are looking at international travel from September onwards. I know how tough this past year has been for everyone, and we will continue to support our beloved agents any way we can,” concluded Green.
