G Adventures, the world’s adventure travel leader, announces the launch of a new online booking engine allowing North American travellers to package international airfares with adventure tours online for the first time.
“It’s no secret that planning a trip and sourcing the best airfares can be complicated. As a company we’re committed to delivering the best customer service in the world,” says John Warner, G Adventures’ VP Global Sales. “Offering travellers the ability to package their tour and flights easily and conveniently in one simple online process represents the next iteration in the company’s obsession to lead with service, “ he adds.
Another benefit the new system offers is the ability to book certain airfares without the need for the customer to pay for the package in full at the time of booking.
Warner explains, “The majority of airfares these days are ‘instant purchase’ – meaning in order to secure the best deal, the customer must pay upfront at the time of booking. Many of our tickets allow the ability to book the seat and confirm the package with just a deposit, reducing the initial financial commitment required whilst securing your place on one of our adventures.”
The improved platform – internally dubbed Sky High – allows travellers to book flights, add pre or post-trip hotel nights and My Own Room as part of the same booking process. Travellers can effectively manage their budgets as the total cost of the trip is automatically displayed throughout the reservation process.
