Sydney Agent wins $15,000 Polar Cruise with Dr Karl

July 8, 2019 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Emily Cai, from Sydney-based ONLYLUXE travel agency has won the ultimate adventure holiday – an Antarctic Peninsula voyage escorted by the iconic Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, in World Expeditions’ 2019 agent incentive competition. 

Emily sold the most World Expeditions Travel Group holidays to win the prize valued at over $15,000, which includes a berth on the 12-day Antarctic Cruise with Dr Karl on board the M/V Ortelius, return airfares and AU$500 spending money.

In World Expeditions’ typically active style, this exceptional voyage offers opportunities to get active with kayaking, walks, camping on ice and other fun activities to enjoy – and Emily is going with an open mind.

“I’ve camped in the wild a lot but camping on the ice will be a new adventure for me,” Emily said.   “I love kayaking and can’t wait to paddle among the icebergs and to see some of the incredible wildlife.”

“I’m just thrilled to go to Antarctica with Dr Karl,” Emily said, “travelling with an expert and learning more about Antarctica will make it such a meaningful experience.”

World Expeditions is repeating the “Big Adventures” agent incentive in 2020, this time offering travel agents the chance to win an all expenses paid place on the ultimate historic journey, a 27 day odyssey following the Silk Route from its source in Xian, China, through an ever changing landscape to the fabled city of Samarkand, Uzbekistan.

The Silk Road to Samarkand via Kashgar journey follows a route that has been travelled for thousands of years, passing ancient mosques, temples, monasteries and markets, through a landscape that is beautiful – sometimes desolate, sometimes ruggedly mountainous.

The agent who sells the most World Expeditions Travel Group holidays between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020 will earn themselves the right to travel on the same route that was travelled by Alexander the Great, Ghengis Khan and Tamerlane on their incredible journeys.  This amazing prize, valued at more than $11,000, includes a place on the 17-day Silk Road to Samarkand via Kashgar, return economy airfares ex Sydney or Melbourne and AU$500 spending money.

Agents will automatically earn one point for every World Expeditions Travel Group trip sold.  Trips must be more than five (5) days duration and the client must depart between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020.  The agent with the most points as of 30 June 2020 will be added to a confirmed Silk Road departure of their choice, with travel to be completed within 1 year. Agents will receive credits for qualifying trips already sold.

The World Expeditions Travel Group comprises 11 brands, including World Expeditions, UTracks, Tasmanian Expeditions, Australian Walking Holidays, Sherpa Expeditions, Great Canadian Trails and Adventure South NZ and, with more than 1,000 exceptional adventure holidays on offer, there’s plenty of opportunity to be the top selling agent.
