How does it work?

Ignite works with companies of all sizes who are looking to reward, train, and invest in their employees in a unique and sustainable way.  Our journeys are created to mutually benefit the employers and their teams (along with the destinations we visit). If you feel like this is something you would want to see your company do- take the initiative! You can propose us to your company (and potentially have them sponsor your journey) with complete guidance and support from Ignite’s team.

WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE journey fee?

Your accommodation, transportation, meals, activities and excursions with a 5-10% contribution to our local partner is included. The only expense would be your flight to and from the destination.

What if they say no?

Don’t get discouraged- schedule a conversation with them to discuss the reasoning behind their decision. This will show them that you care and keep those lines of communication open :) Also- this does not mean that you can't go, grab a friend (or go solo) on one of our upcoming trips
