Can a travel agent sell an adventure to a client without telling them where they’re going? Enter The Global Scavenger Hunt that turns creative travel on its head in 2018 by taking people on an adventure around the world, but without telling them where they will be going. 

The Global Scavenger Hunt will take 15 two-person teams around the world visiting at least 10 secret countries over the annual three-week adventure that begins April 13, 2018.  Travel agents earn $3,000 commission when they sell the package to a team of two for $25,000.

Participants are given the opportunity to live out their Indiana Jones and Amazing Race fantasies while circumnavigating the globe, and are offered given numerous chances to do good with half-day volunteering opportunities; as the event also serves as a platform to raise funds for interest-free micro loans and the building of remote co-ed elementary schools in places of need. Previous events have built schools in places like: Kenya, Ecuador, Haiti and India. 

The 23-day around the world event is limited to 15 teams of two, and the $25,000 per team entry fee includes: all international airfare, first class hotels, 40% of meals and special event-sponsored travel gear. Single travelers are welcome to apply and all travelers will be interviewed for suitability.
