Make a better world through travel.

Enter for your chance to become a Responsible Travel Ambassador!

Are you an agent of change? G Adventures and Travel Weekly are on the hunt for two more Responsible Travel Ambassadors. The winning travel agents will be rewarded with an eight-day assignment to India and the opportunity to become a voice for Responsible Travel within our industry.

What is responsible travel?

Responsible travel gives travellers the chance to connect with their world in a whole new way. It helps support local economies, empowers communities, and creates tangible change. Simply by helping travellers explore with a conscience, you can make a difference in the lives of others.

Who are G Adventures?

There are as many travel companies to explore the world with as there are places to explore. G Adventures travellers are looking for something more than a plane ticket, a hotel room, and a seat on a bus. We make travel meaningful by thinking small, thinking local, and thinking about what benefits the traveller, the tour, and the planet best.

What’s “adventure travel”?

Adventure travel is about exciting, unique, and memorable travel experiences in every corner of the world, from world-famous locales to the remotest destinations around. Adventures range from a comfort safari in Africa to sailing aboard a yacht off the coast of Thailand, from trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or riding the TransSiberian railway.

What’s Planeterra?

Planeterra is a non-profit organization founded by G Adventures that works to make the world a better place to explore and inhabit by helping local communities touched by the travel industry to develop and grow. Visit planeterra.org and help us make the world a little more perfect.
