A recent G Adventures panel survey looking at travel trends post-pandemic has indicated that 35 percent of travelers intend to take their next trip with multiple friends and/or family members. In response to this growing trend for travelers wanting to travel with people they know, G Adventures has released a collection of 80 tours that provide additional benefits over those they would normally receive when booking private small group travel.
The new Book Your Bubble Collection gives travelers the opportunity to reconnect with their loved ones and their love of travel at the same time, while feeling safe and comfortable 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 travelers. On all tours travelers 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 traveling 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 travelers to get back out there and start making a difference again as soon as it is safe to do so,” says Poon Tip.
Benefits of the Book Your Bubble Collection include:
- Book Your Bubble with eight people and the eighth spot is discounted by 50 percent—perfect for a bubble of two families, a group of friends, or even four couples, or Book Your Bubble with 12 people and the 12th spot is complimentary.
- Groups can divide discounts across individuals in the group if they prefer.
