“We know it’s far easier for agents to sell a product if they have first-hand knowledge. FAM participation allows agents to experience the intimacy and flexibility of a small group tour, and then relay that back to their clients,” says Steve Lima, G Adventures’ marketing manager, U.S.
Trips available to U.S. travel agents (no companions allowed) are priced at $499 pp, land-only—saving agents 83 percent off the regular tour price. None of the trips are shortened or altered versions, allowing agents to get the full tour experience. Agents who book eight traveling passengers within a year of the FAM trip will be refunded the trip cost after their clients’ travels.
G Adventures has segmented its trip brochures based on travel style, rather than destination, so travel agents can match their clients with the right experience based on their interests and budget. FAMs, which include the Comfort, Classic and Active travel styles, all range from eight to nine days and depart between August and November 2014.
The 2014 FAMs lineup for U.S. travel agents includes:
- 9-day Taste of Turkey, Aug. 9-17, 2014
- 9-day Ecuador Multisport, Sept. 6-14, 2014
- 8-day Machu Picchu Explorer, Oct. 12-19, 2014
- 8-day North India Highlights, Oct. 19-26, 2014
- 9-day Cambodia Experience, Nov. 6-14, 2014
