How do I "Hold an Option" for my client?

There are two ways to hold an option: Via Sherpa (see above) or by phone 1-800-708-7761 (North America) or 0870 999 0144 (in the UK). Payment is not required and after holding an option you will be provided with a Booking Reference Number and instructions on how to confirm. Options that are not confirmed within 48 hours will expire and your client's space will be released.

**Remember bookings not made through Sherpa are not tracked for our Preferred Agent Incentives**

How do I book a tour for my client online?

We have an interactive online booking engine, called "Sherpa". This innovative booking engine allows agents to book live space on our adventures, add services, retrieve invoices and vouchers as well as order brochures. Please visit www.gadventures.com/sherpa

To get started, please ask your manager for your username and login. Or, to have your agency set up for Sherpa please have your manager visit www.gadventures.com/sherpa with a username and password ready.

Once logged into Sherpa, input the desired trip code into the "trip code". Once this has been submitted the departure dates will become available to you, Select the desired departure date and click onto the "Book Online" button.

If the departure is outside of 60 days (90 days for Expedition-based adventures) you have the choice of holding a space (i.e. an Option) for up to 2 business days, or to confirm by paying a deposit of USD/CAD/EUR 250 or GBP100 per person (USD/CAD/EUR 500 or GBP300 p.p. for Expedition-based adventures) using your client's credit card. Within 60 days (90 days for Expedition based adventures) you can also hold space or confirm the booking with full payment via your current payment method with G Adventures.

  • If you choose to Hold an Option online you can return to Sherpa to confirm the booking. Please be sure to have your client's passport information, date of birth, medical or dietary needs and emergency contact information in hand when you call.
