TrekAmerica has agents in mind

TrekAmerica and Grand American Adventures have introduced new online training schemes for travel agents.


The platforms offer rewards and incentives for those keen on maximising their knowledge of the two operators, and agents completing all five modules become a Trexpert or a GAApro.

They will also put themselves in the frame to bag an epic free Mini Adventure.

The mini-breaks up for grabs include: New York to Niagara Falls, San Francisco to Yosemite, Vegas to the Grand Canyon or Los Angeles to the Grand Canyon.

Agents also benefit from up to 75% off the price of holidays.

Between them TrekAmerica and Grand American Adventures offer over 120 guided tours across North, South and Central America - including three new TrekAmerica tours and four from Grand American Adventures.

Agents who become an expert on all of these will learn a raft of additional information such as familiarising themselves with the companies’ new vehicles.
