Spread the love

A recent G Adventures panel survey looking at travel trends post-pandemic has indicated that 35% of travellers* intend to take their next trip with multiple friends and / or family members. In response to this growing trend for travellers wanting to travel with people they know,

G Adventures has released a programme of 80 tours that provide additional benefits over and above those they would normally receive when booking private small group travel.

The new ‘Book Your Bubble Collection’ gives travellers the opportunity to reconnect with their loved ones and their love of travel at the same time, while feeling safe and comfortable in the company of the people joining them in their ‘private bubble’ during their adventure.

Additional benefits being offered across the 80 tours, which include Active, Marine, Classic and 18-to-Thirtysomethings travel styles, include more flexible booking conditions and incentives such as discounted tours for trip organizers, which can also be shared between the group of travellers. On all tours travellers will also experience the added health and safety measures of G Adventures’ new Travel with Confidence policy.

Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures, says the Book Your Bubble Collection benefits for private travel are the latest offering from the adventure operator to help build confidence with people looking to travel again.

“We want to ensure travelling is made as attractive as possible following this pandemic. The Book Your Bubble Collection makes booking a private tour more flexible and affordable than ever before. G Adventures is a company built on changing lives through travel, and there are local people who need our support, so we’re doing all we can to encourage travellers to get back out there and start making a difference again as soon as it is safe to do so,” says Poon Tip.

To support the launch of the Book Your Bubble Collection G Adventures is running 3 three brief (15-20 mins) Zoom educational sessions for agents, where they can learn all about the Book Your Bubble Collection, plus incentives and benefits of being involved.
