Travel FREE with our Group Travel Program

Our compensation package is among the best in the industry!

Our Group Leaders are resourceful: Some find their group members in their alumni, religious, or business organizations, while others reach out to family and friends. No matter your plan of action, you’ll benefit from leading your group. In fact, you can travel FREE*.

Here’s how it works: Bring as few as 8 companions on one of our trips and you TRAVEL FREE* as the 9th group member.

Trip Type Compensation

Grand Circle Travel Land Tour

1 free trip* for 8 travelers;
9th person’s trip is free

Grand Circle Cruise Line River
Ship or Small Ship Cruise

1 free trip* for 10 travelers;
11th person’s trip is free

Or, you may choose to share the CASH equivalent of your free trip amongst the members of your group—that way, everyone saves.

*Free trip is based upon average amount paid per person, including the trip price, extensions, and air add-ons. Excludes taxes, port charges, Travel Protection Plan, Business Class upgrades, Good Buy discounts, and applied Vacation Ambassador credits. Group Leader savings cannot be combined with our Vacation Ambassador Referral Program.
