Intrepid reveals mystery FAM; new agent initiative

Intrepid reveals mystery FAM; new agent initiative

Today, Intrepid is launching its largest Purpose-Driven Agent Incentive in the Americas, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, and also to encourage agents to celebrate the business’s philosophy of having a “Purpose Beyond Profit.”

The three-month Purpose-Driven Agent Incentive—running today until April 30, 2019—rewards agents for “selling, leading and travelling with purpose.” During the three month campaign, agents receive one Purpose Point for every client booked on one of Intrepid Group’s 2,700 sustainable tours—through the brands Intrepid Travel, Peregrine Adventures and Urban Adventures—with the top-30 agents receiving monthly prizes focused on Intrepid’s sustainable travel experiences around the globe.

Win a free trip to Nepal!

At the end of the three months, the top 10 Agents—accumulating the most Purpose Points—will win a free trip to Nepal, led by Intrepid Group cofounder Geoff Manchester and Shayna Zand, the company’s head of business development for the Americas.

“Thirty years ago, Intrepid’s cofounders created a business with a vision of offering a style of travel that benefits travellers and the places they visit,” said Darshika Jones, Intrepid Group’s regional director of North America “This year, we want to celebrate our anniversary by recognizing travel agents who share our vision of ‘Changing the Way People See the World’. This incentive offers our top sellers the chance to have a once in a lifetime experience in Nepal, on a trip that supports some of the communities that benefit from travellers the most.”

Intrepid’s 10-day Experience Nepal trip departs on Nov. 3, 2019, and will let agents engage with a variety of experiences including hiking and cooking classes.

“This is more than an incentive, it’s a celebration of the work that so many agents are doing to highlight sustainable tourism and the chance for travellers to help better the lives of people and conserve our planet,” said Zand. “Last year, industry growth exceeded our already-high projections, growing by 46 percent in a year, proving that North American travel agents and customers are becoming savvier about sustainable tourism and seek out companies who show real commitment to being a responsible business and a force for good.“
