Group and family discounts

Groups can often get special discounts on adventure travel tours. Classic Journeys, for example, offers a 25-percent discount on groups of six or more people booking together; one person can receive the discount, or it can be allocated evenly among the group. Similarly, Mountain Travel Sobek offers a group discount for seven or more people traveling together. ExpeditionTrips gives a five-percent discount for groups of eight or more.

Families with young children and teenagers can also catch a break with many adventure companies. Several outfitters offer itineraries (and prices) that cater to families, but even trips that aren't designed exclusively for families can yield savings. For example, travelers ages eight to 18 get a 15-percent discount on many of The World Outdoors' trips when accompanied by a full-paying adult.
