The acronym for ‘you only live once’ (YOLO) is finally on its way out of everyday slang, so-much-so that G Adventures has decided to rebrand its tour style named after the over-used expression.

As of 2018, the tour operator’s YOLO tours will be listed under the new and direct ’18-to-Thirtysomethings’ title.

G Adventures says ’18-to-Thirtysomethings’ is a “more functional title” as it makes it more clear which ages (18 to 39) the tour style is best appropriate for.

“With the growing demand for this style of tour, we wanted to move towards a name that was functional, simple and straightforward.”

“As well as that, the term ‘YOLO’ was also starting to feel dated, so we felt now was the right time for a refresh.”

According to G, the ‘YOLO’ style has grown by 85 percent since it was first introduced in 2012, and now incorporated nearly 185 affordable tours.


Among the “fun-filled, fast-paced tours” is the new ‘Japan on a Shoestring – Tokyo to Kyoto’ trip taking in the country’s most iconic cities, as well as the ‘Indonesia Adventure – Java & Bali’ holiday including plenty of free time between various must-see activities.

Other 18-to-Thirtysomething trips include the 34-day ‘Bangkok to Bali Adventure’ covering the best of Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the neighbouring city-state of Singapore, and the all-out, all-night eight-day Thailand Full Moon Party.
