G Adventures Offers Agents Bonus Commission, Contest and Webinars

G Adventures is offering travel agents an extra 2 percent commission on all trips booked withpromo code GNORMOUS, as part of the tour operator’s G-Normous campaign. Further, agents’ clients can take advantage of a 10 percent discount on all Classic style trips.

To qualify, agents must register and use the same email address to create and confirm bookings. Once agents register online their bookings begin to count towards any of the G-Normous prizes. For every client booked, regardless of travel date, agents will receive a chance to win.

“We’re incredibly thrilled with how well the campaign has resonated with the agent community so far,” says Steve Lima, marketing manager, U.S. “The feedback from our partners has been amazing and agents continue to register and book G trips for their clients. Last month the U.S.  recorded our highest booking month ever. We look forward to awarding more agent prizes and providing their clients with even more incentives in the coming months.”
