WHY IT RATES: The tour operator's agent incentive program, G-Normous, offers large prizes to celebrate its 30th birthday. - Mackenzie Cullen, Editorial Associate
Leading small group adventure tour operator, G Adventures, is bringing back G-Normous for its seventh consecutive year. Launching in January 2020, and running for four months, the agent incentive program offers more than $100K in prizes.
Up until April 30, 2020, agents have the opportunity to take advantage of extra commission and win weekly and monthly prizes including cash and trips. The top-selling agent wins the $5,000 G-Normous jackpot.
Jenn Stevens, U.S. trade marketing manager, G Adventures, says the adventure operator, which is a leader in community tourism, is looking forward to working with travel advisors to change more lives through travel in 2020.
"G Adventures celebrates its 30th birthday in 2020, so we wanted to start the year's peak season off with a bang and celebrate this milestone with our valued agent partners by offering them great prizes, trips and bonus commission. We're especially keen to recognize agents who are first-time bookers, so we're offering a special incentive to agents who book their clients on a life-changing adventure with us for the first time," says Stevens.
All agents with a G Adventures Sherpa account will be automatically registered for G-Normous. Agents without a Sherpa account should register through their agency manager at www.gadventures.com/agents/register/.
Regardless of travel date, agents will receive a ballot for every client booked on a G Adventures tour and two ballots for every client booked on a National Geographic Journeys trip between January 01 and April 30, 2020.
