G Adventures has brought back “G-Normous” for a fifth consecutive year.
Launched Jan. 1 and spanning four months, the North American agent incentive program includes more than $100K in prizes.
“G-Normous has gained a lot of momentum over the years. In fact, we’ve consistently experienced YOY double-digit sales growth since the program launched five years ago. Our agent partners look forward to it each January,” says Aizaz Sheikh, Canadian marketing director, G Adventures. “As we head into peak booking season, we’re happy extend some great incentives to the agent community and their clients.”
Up until April 30, agents (excluding Quebec) will have a chance to take advantage of extra commission and win weekly prizes including cash and free trips. The top-selling Canadian agent will receive a $5,000 G-Normous jackpot.
All agents with a G Adventures Sherpa account are automatically registered. Agents without a Sherpa account must register through their agency manager at http://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 from Jan. 1 to April 30. A ballot will be selected each week. Winners claim their prize from a wall of 25 prizes at http://www.gadventures.com/gnormous.
For the month of February, agents will receive an extra 2% commission when they quote promo code GNORMOUS on their bookings.
The incentive program will be supported with consumer offers exclusive to G-Normous participants, along with promotional materials and webinars.

In addition, any agent who books more than 10 clients will be entered in a random draw to win $1,000.
