Laid off? Take off with Intrepid Travel

Lost your job and need to get away for a bit? Intrepid Travel understands. So, you can get a 15 percent discount if you’ve been laid off recently … and you can use it one trips to more than 100 countries.

While it’s easy to see today’s economic conditions as all doom and gloom, bookings for some of Intrepid Travel’s overland trips have increased this year. Sales for trips between Kenya and Cape Town (45 days long) doubled from January to November last year. CEO and co-founder Darell Wade says, “It appears that some people see being laid off as an opportunity to take a career break, reassess where they are at and see the world. By offering this discount we hope to make this opportunity a reality for them.”
