With data predicting that the millennial market will be the first to rebound and ‘retravel’ coming out of the global pandemic, G Adventures is launching eight new ‘18-to-Thirtysomethings’ trips in seven countries for 2021. A recent survey* conducted by G Adventures suggests 57% of 18-35 year olds, more than any other demographic, intend to travel internationally by the middle of 2021.
New experiences launching on these tours include visiting less frequented beach towns while driving along the coast of Vietnam, exploring the world’s largest open-air art gallery in Rajasthan, India, and kayaking at a community tourism project at Kane’ohe Bay in Hawaii where profits contribute to the preservation of Oahu’s He’eia State Park.
Five of the new tours launching are also part of the small-group adventure operator’s ‘Travel with Confidence Plus’ collection which features additional physical distancing measures, a maximum group size of 12, and the ‘Travel With Confidence’ policy health and safety measures that are now in place on all tours.
Amanda Dunning, global brand manager for G Adventures, says millennial travellers will be some of the first to get back out into the world, and as they do they are looking to retravel in a way that has a positive impact on the destinations they visit.
“This pandemic has given us all reason to pause and think about how we can ‘retravel’ better in future. Community tourism that gives back to local people, which G Adventures pioneered 30 years ago, is perfectly positioned to meet this need,” says Dunning.
G Adventures offers more than 150, 18-to-Thirtysomethings tours, in 71 countries. The trips are all specifically designed for travellers aged between 18 and 39 who are fun-loving, curious, adventurous and budget-conscious. Many are solo travellers and / or travelling for the first time, so appreciate the safety and security a small group tour provides, combined with the social aspect of travelling with likeminded people. Led by a knowledgeable CEO (chief experience officer) these trips give travellers knowledge and insight into the local culture, as well a sense of freedom to experience iconic destinations at an affordable price.
