G Adventures, the world’s leading adventure travel company has announced the final winner of its UMI (or Uber Massive Incentive) promotion, giving away a once in a lifetime adventure.
Marc Rees from STA Travel, Westfield Bondi won two places on Antarctica Classic along with return flights from Air New Zealand, after entering the draw by confirming a G Adventures tour booking in the first quarter of this year.
“I really can’t believe it, still hasn’t sunk in. I thought I’d only get to Antarctica if I won the lottery, and I guess that’s exactly what’s happened,” he said.
Over $40,000 worth of prizes have been given away during the promotion including GoPro packages, Mountain Design vouchers and National Geographic subscriptions.
Over 3000 agents took part, with adventures to Japan, Colombia and Tajikistan and Uzbekistan given away each month.
G Adventures Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand, Adrian Piotto said the team at G Adventures were always very excited when the day came to give away a free trip to the hard-working agents that sell them every day.
“Agents love UMI, and we do too! It’s great to be giving away well-earned adventures to the agents that work so hard to sell them. This year saw agents head all over the globe and we hope this will inspire them to encourage travellers to explore more corners of the globe,” he said.
“Of course, UMI will be back next year, bigger and better than ever.”
