You Travel Agents go on so many famils and attend so many events that we’ve had to create a whole new section dedicated to your awesome adventures. And we’re jealous just reading it.

Check out what consultants got up to over the last seven days below, or click here to check out last week’s pics and snaps.


1. Insider Journeys & The Living Room host top Agents


Following Dr Chris Brown’s recent visit to Vietnam with Insider Journeys, Network Ten’s ‘The Living Room’ and Vietnam Airlines, the four top-selling Agents who sold the most Vietnam trips were whisked away to take part in an exclusive experience with The Living Room, all thanks to Insider Journeys.

The high achieving Agents and their guests travelled to Sydney with two nights accommodation included, to meet Dr Chris Brown, attend a live recording of The Living Room and enjoy an exclusive dinner at Thai Foon in Darling Harbour hosted by Insider Journeys.

Witnessing how The Living Room is filmed and produced, and being a part of the studio audience was a highlight for all.


2. Travel Agents experience the ‘Jungle’ with G Adventures

Trekking for gorillas in Volcanoes National Park and witnessing elephants and lions in their natural environment – it’s no wonder G Adventures’ Uber Massive Incentive (UMI) in the Jungle has been described as “the trip of a lifetime”.

The winners of the annual incentive recently returned from their East Africa adventure as part of the G Adventures’ Culture & Wildlife of Uganda and Rwanda trip.

Accompanied by Queensland’s Global Purpose Specialist (GPS) Cam McDonell, the group spent 10 days being taken out of their comfort zone in Uganda and Rwanda.

“We wanted to take the agents out of their comfort zone on this UMI trip – and that’s exactly what we did.” McDonell said. “The sense of excitement from the agents was palpable, it was clear they wanted to experience all that Uganda and Rwanda had to offer.”

Steph Jones, from STA Travel, said it was “the best trip” she had ever been on.

“Forget the beach break you do every year – if you really want to experience life, you need to get out of your comfort zone. The Culture & Wildlife of Uganda & Rwanda tour is an experience that will stay with travellers forever,” Jones added.

The Culture & Wildlife of Uganda and Rwanda trip is a part of G Adventure’s Jane Goodall Collection, a selection of 20 incredible, wildlife-focused tours endorsed by world-renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall. The small-group adventures give travellers unique opportunities to see some of the planet’s most fascinating animals, while at the same time, respecting their freedom.


3. Travel Counsellors ‘pack for a purpose’ during Gold celebrations in Jamaica

Travel Counsellors in Jamaica

A group of over 70 Travel Counsellors recently celebrated their ‘Gold’ status with the company during an exclusive trip to the five-star Half Moon resort in Jamaica. Whilst enjoying a range of activities and excursions on the island, the company also worked with non-profit organisation ‘Pack for a Purpose’ to give back to a local school in the area.

Pack for a Purpose provides travellers with up-to-date information about needed supplies for community-based projects supported by accommodations around the globe. Travellers use their luggage to take school, medical and other supplies to the communities they visit. Travel Counsellors partnered with the charity to supply hundreds of items of stationary equipment to Barrett Town school in St James, which has over 350 pupils aged 6-14 years old, and encouraged its Gold Travel Counsellors attending the trip to bring items along too.

Managing Director of Australia, Fred van Eijk comments: “Being part of such a great industry means we are privileged enough to visit and celebrate the success of our Travel Counsellors in beautiful destinations such as Jamaica, but it’s also really important to us that we are giving back to the communities we visit and playing our part to ensure tourism brings greater benefits for local people the environment in these places.”

“Pack for a Purpose is a great initiative and we were really pleased to give this equipment to the children and hear about the difference this will make to them and their education. We are a people based business and helping others in both our local and global communities is something we are extremely passionate about as a company.”

The company host two trips each year for its top performing Gold Travel Counsellors to celebrate their business success and reward them for their hard work and dedication over the past 12 months.
