Austin Adventures Lavishes Incentives on Travel Agents Who Book National Park Vacations in March

BILLINGS, MT – March 6, 2018 – Austin Adventures is marking March 2018 for its own month-long tribute to this country’s National Parks and to travel agents who assist in guiding Austin Adventures clients to these destinations.

Four decades ago this pioneer of active, multisport travel for adults and families cut its teeth with award-winning itineraries exploring National Parks. Today itineraries that wrap around these natural wonders constitute the majority of national and international travel destinations available to guests. The company enjoys a loyal clientele with 98% of alumni travelers saying that they would journey with Austin Adventures again.

In 2017 Austin Adventures’ travel agent-sourced bookings doubled over the previous year. In recognizing their importance and to reward travel professionals for their loyalty, Austin Adventures will gift travel agents a $50 Amazon Card per adult or child booked on any Austin Adventures pre-set or custom departure utilizing a National Park during the month of March. For example, a family of five booked earns an agent five $50 gift cards. This reward comes on top of an already generous 12 percent commission agents receive for booking Austin Adventures trips.

To incentivize the public and to help agents make a sale, Austin Adventures ( will also include a free pre-trip hotel room for guests (double occupancy) with ages 12 and under sharing the room with the adults. For a four-adult booking, two pre-trip rooms are offered. Again, this offer runs through March and is exclusive to any national park trip booking.

Austin Adventures makes servicing its clients from introduction to journey’s end its top priority, whether working through travel agents or directly with the client. Online resources to assist in decision-making include:

“When a national park is in the equation, an experienced, well-connected tour company can give you the kind of quality park experience that just might not be possible on your own,” said Dan Austin, President and Founder of Austin Adventures.

Austin’s company has stayed ahead of the growth curve and explosion in popularity that National Parks have experienced recently by adding capacity and departures and by blocking prime lodging inside a park a year or more in advance. Leading tour operators such as Austin Adventures has rooms, restaurant reservations and sightseeing logistics all worked out. They have standing reservations for meals/restaurants both inside a park and outside (years of research have turned up great places the public may not be aware of). They alleviate parking woes by dropping off guests and guides at a trailhead or attraction and picking them up later. They know where the crowds aren’t as well as the overlooked trails and park vistas and best times to be there.

“Guests – and their travel agents -- benefit from our expertise and ‘insider’ knowledge and connections,” Austin said.
