One of the great things about travelling is the shared experiences, with old friends and new ones. While the past couple of years has not been the kind we’d want to share with our enemies, GFOB are thankful you’ve stayed their avid supporter through this rollercoaster of a ride. As a reward, each of the four Globus family of brands has generously put forward a prize for you to win!

Staying True for You

A recent travel agent survey saw the Globus family of brands rank a whopping 79/100 net promoter score (NPS). And 80% of all agents surveyed highly rated the brands’ consistent standards and commitment to their agents and clients during the COVID pandemic. No mean feat given the pressure the industry has been under!

Those stats were special enough, but the heart-warming results of 90% (yes, ninety) of agents saying they were ‘extremely likely’ to book again with GFOB got each of the four brands – Globus, Cosmos, Avalon Waterways, and Monograms – wanting to return the love with a mega prize giveaway!

Four Lucky Agents Will Win the Express Pass Back to Travel

As the bookings start to pour back in, GFOB wanted to ensure you, their beloved agents, get the express pass back to the world. Together, you’ve navigated cancellations, changes, refunds, and more $64,000 questions than Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.

As you’ve demonstrated patience, the Globus family of brands have held excellent customer service as their core COVID mantra. This is alongside full transparency and industry-leading refund times. Their reward is that 90% rebooking rate; yours is this mega prize giveaway!
