G Adventures Introduces: 18-to-Thirtysomethings

October 17, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

It’s out with the old and in with the new, as G Adventures announces their ‘YOLO’ style of tours will be rebranded 18-to-Thirtysomethings.

The name change is a move towards a more functional title to make it clear to travellers the tour style is designed for those aged between 18 and 39 years of age, as well as to align with a growing segment within the business. Since its conception in 2012, the trip style has seen an increased global passenger growth of 85%.

“With the growing demand for this style of tour, we wanted to move towards a name that was functional, simple and straightforward,” says Bruce Poon Tip, owner and founder of G Adventures.

“As well as that, the term ‘YOLO’ was also starting to feel dated, so we felt now was the right time for a refresh.”

As with YOLO, all of the 185 tours in the 18-to-Thirtysomethings range are affordable, starting from as little as AUD $88.00 per day. These fun-filled, fast-paced tours are designed for younger travellers aged 18-39 looking to travel with people in a similar age demographic. The tours offer locally-owned accommodation, amazing cultural experiences and of course the well-known G Adventures CEOs (Chief Experience Officers) who provide an award-winning service.

To coincide with the rebrand, the company has also announced the launch of eight new 18-to-Thirtysomethings tours for 2018.

The new tours for 2018 include:
