G Adventures, the world’s leading adventure travel company, has just launched the hugely popular UMI (or Über Massive Incentive) for its sixth year, giving Australian and New Zealand travel agents the chance to win their share in $70,000 worth of prizes.
This year the promotion is a little different, UMI in the Jungle will see 12 major prize winners heading on an African Jungle adventure with flights included. Together they will experience a once-in-a-lifetime trip through Uganda and Rwanda where they will get the chance to trek with the gorillas.
To be in a chance to win, agents must earn incentive points by booking travellers on G Adventures trips. One incentive point will be awarded for every G Adventures passenger booked on a trip, two for every passenger booked on a Jane Goodall Collection trip and five for every G Expedition Polar booking valued over $10,000.
The 12 places on the UMI in the Jungle, which will have agents spotting chimpanzees and gorillas while trekking through remote African wilderness and enjoying wildlife drives to see elephants and hippos in their natural habitat, will be given to the six top sellers as well as six randomly picked agents.
On top of the major prize, weekly rewards will be given away to random winners including Go Pro packages, UE Boom Speakers, iPad Minis and G Adventures travel vouchers. The more bookings confirmed and incentive points earned, the more entries an agent receives in the draw to win the grand prize.
“We are really excited about the new UMI for 2017. It has long been one of the most popular travel incentives over the years and UMI in the Jungle gives agents the chance to visit a part of the world that not many get to see,” said Adrian Piotto, Managing Director for G Adventures Australia and New Zealand.
“All our hard-working Aussie and Kiwi agents have to do is confirm one booking and they could be trekking through Uganda and Rwanda on one of our newest tours.”
To coincide with the launch of UMI, G Adventures is running a January sale offering a $150 discount on all tours valued over $1,000 booked in the month of January.
Winners will be announced each week from 1 January to 31 March through G Adventures’ UMI newsletter and UMI Facebook page. Agents must be registered with G Adventures’ sales platform, Sherpa, to be in the running.
