Strongest sales month since the pandemic started for G Adventures in January 2022G Adventures has recorded its highest sales month since the pandemic began, with January ...Read moreStrongest sales month since the pandemic started for G Adventures in January 2022 - News & announcementsG Adventures has recorded its highest sales month since the pandemic began, with January bookings from the UK exceeding expectations. Despite the uncertainty caused by Omicron in the new year, the adventure operator saw confidence grow throughout the month, with travellers booking a broad range of travel experiences across the operator’s 11 travel styles. Brain Young, managing director EMEA, G Adventures said January’s performance is a great indicator that traveller confidence is growing and the flood gates of pent-up demand, generated by the pandemic, are starting to open. “January is renowned for being one of the most important sales months for travel, and this year it definitely didn’t disappoint. We’ve seen the highest sales since the pandemic started, with many travellers are booking tours set to depart before the end of April, showing the huge desire among British travellers to get back on the road. We’re expecting to see this intent to book increase as more destinations, in particular Asian favourites such as Thailand and Vietnam, relax restrictions for British travellers. We’ve seen strong sales across all our travel styles, in particular our Classic, 18-to-Thirtysomethings and Active styles, with travellers clearly encouraged by the variety of product we have on sale and the experience we’ve gained since we relaunched our tours in September 2020. Having safely run thousands of trips, it’s fantastic to see an increase in our customer satisfaction in 2021, as travellers recognise all the extra measures we have put in place to ensure their safety,” Young continues. Here are the top January booking trends and traveller insights from G Adventures: Travellers looking to travel as soon as possible: The uncertainty around travel caused lead times to rise throughout the pandemic as travellers were unsure when they would be able to enter different destinations. G Adventures has seen these lead times reduce in their January sales, with 40% of bookings from UK travellers being made for trips departing before the end of April. It’s clear that travellers are eager to hit the road as soon as possible and are looking to destinations with lower entry requirements such as Mexico, Costa Rica and Peru as well as Europe in the short term. Young travellers are among top bookers: As the last to receive vaccines and many being forced to work or study from home, there is huge pent up demand among youth travellers, who are hungry to travel and reconnect with other young travellers. With an incredible selection of adventures on offer for young travellers as part of the 18-to-Thirtysomethings travel style, combined with the newly-launched ‘Roamies’ collection, G Adventures is seeing huge demand from travellers aged 18 to 35, with a small increase in young travellers opting to travel alone. A study undertaken by G Adventures in 2021 showed that the need for social connection amongst young travellers was stronger than ever, with 64 per cent* of UK respondents aged 18-34 saying they were likely to try a hostel experience following the pandemic. The launch of the new Roamies collection, developed in partnership with Hostelworld has catered to this trend, with the UK being the top booking region for the new travel style in January. Human contact helps build confidence: With the need to navigate entry requirements, border restrictions and testing, travel can still seem overwhelming for some travellers. G Adventures has seen a larger percentage of bookings through ‘offline bookings’, with travellers choosing options where they have interaction with an expert or agent over booking online. Pre-pandemic two thirds of bookings came through online channels, but the adventure specialist is reporting closer to 50% in January 2022 as travellers turn to experts to feel confident in their booking. G Adventures increased its contact centre headcount by 70% ahead of January to support agents and travellers, which saw call and live chat wait times reduce to pre-pandemic levels. Active travel trend is here to stay: Early on in the pandemic, G Adventures recorded an increase in web searches for Active adventures, including Everest Base Camp Trek and Mt Kilimanjaro. As travel restarted, this interest translated into sales, which the operator coined the ‘Carpe Diem Effect’. It was clear that travellers were eager to lock in those achievement based holidays, which they may have put off in previous years and made them feel they were making the most of their holiday time. This trend has continued in 2022, as the Active travel style moved up to third place for bookings made in January 2022 versus 2019. Destinations such as Nepal, Tanzania and Peru are most popular as travellers look to seize the day and complete a challenge of a lifetime. New restrictions haven’t impacted traveller experience: Having operated trips since September 2020, G Adventures has safely run thousands of trips over the past 18 months. With increased safety protocols in play as part of the operator’s Travel with Confidence policy, which includes mask wearing and increased sanitisation, the operator recorded a 5% increase in its NPS score in 2021, showing these increased measures were not negatively impacting the overall traveller experience. High potential for Asia: Despite many popular destinations, including Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Indonesia being closed or heavily restricted for travellers, Asia continued to be G Adventures’ second most popular region in January, with particular interest from travellers aged 50 to 70 years. While travellers are booking with longer lead times, this data shows the intent and desire among British travellers to get back and explore this part of the world, and G Adventures anticipates a high surge in short-lead bookings as soon as destinations announce the reopening of their borders. Touring offers huge opportunity for travellers: While travellers look to destinations that are open now, touring offers an incredible range of options to suit all travellers. Whether it’s trekking the iconic Inca Trail in Peru, discovering the incredible biodiversity of the Galapagos or sailing along the southern coast of Sri Lanka and unwinding in the sunshine on a dhoni boat in the Maldives, there’s something to suit all travellers. G Adventures will operate over 750 trips in February and March alone, ranging from closer to home adventures such as hiking in Madeira and the Canary Islands to long-haul options in Costa Rica, Tanzania and Mexico.

G Adventures provides more flexibility with 14-day rebooking policyIncludes bookings on the iconic Inca Trail as trek reopening is announced Hot on ...Read moreG Adventures provides more flexibility with 14-day rebooking policy - News & announcementsIncludes bookings on the iconic Inca Trail as trek reopening is announced Hot on the heels of the government's announcement of the new green list of countries for UK-based travellers, G Adventures has updated its ‘Book with Confidence’ policy, to offer increased flexibility for travellers looking to get away this summer, with the option to rebook itineraries just 14 days before a tour’s departure date. The new Book with Confidence policy will include Inca Trail bookings made from 01 July, 2021, for when trips resume on the trail from 07 August, 2021. The small group adventure operator is encouraging travellers to book their hiking adventure along Peru’s most iconic trekking route as soon as possible, as the trail will be running at 50% capacity, meaning groups will have no more than eight travellers on each departure. Permits are on sale now for the 2021 season but will likely sell out fast. The Inca Trail tours join G Adventures’ list of more than 350 trips departing in July and August, as more destinations are opening up and keen to welcome travellers who are ready and able to travel. G Adventures’ updated ‘Book with Confidence’ policy now enables travellers to cancel and rebook their trip up to 14 days before departure, which is one of the most flexible cancellation policies in the industry. The updated conditions apply to tours booked from 01 July, 2021 up until 31 December, 2021, for departure dates up until 31 December, 2022*. Brian Young, managing director at G Adventures, says he believes the relaxation of the Book with Confidence policy will help UK-based travellers to feel confident to travel in the coming months, and that the Inca Trail will be a popular choice among travellers looking for ‘milestone’ and ‘achievement’ style trips. “The recent green list update has spurred a spike in interest around our tours in Madeira, Iceland and Ibiza, which continues to show that our travellers are eager to get away this summer. By offering shorter windows to be able to rebook prior to departure, we’re providing the best flexibility to help our travellers feel confident to book in the coming months, knowing that they can change the dates if they need to. Since we relaunched tours in September 2020, G Adventures has safely operated over 100 trips, so as soon as travellers are ready to book, we are ready to take them on a life-changing adventure. We know from our booking trends that travellers are looking for more active, achievement-based trips and, having been named the Best Inca Trail Tour Operator, we pride ourselves on our ability to secure permits for the trail and deliver the best hiking experiences to our active travellers in Peru. The news that the trail will reopen later this summer is hugely exciting, but with permits already competitive before the pandemic and with the trail operating at 50% capacity, we’re encouraging travellers to get in touch now to lock in that dream hike sooner rather than later to avoid missing out,” Young continues. Example Inca Trail itineraries and other popular tours included in the July and August departures that are available to book now include:
- The Inca Trail - Combine the cultural highlights of the Sacred Valley with the challenge of one of the world’s most coveted hikes. Pass along ancient Incan passes, passing ruins, mountainscapes and cloud forests before catching a glimpse of majestic Machu Picchu at sunrise as you enter the ancient citadel through the Sun Gate. Priced from £729pp** for a seven-day trip from Lima to Cusco.
- Classic Peru - This compact tour of the archaeological highlights and cultural treasures of the Andean highlands has it all.

- Sailing Greece - Mykonos to Santorini - The ideal way to see the Greek Islands, this tour sees travellers step aboard a 52ft sailing yacht and set off for an eight day adventure.
