The Travel Franchise launches the “new” Not Just Travel

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The UK’s fastest-growing travel franchise The Travel Franchise, has gone “into hyper-drive” as it invests significantly across all areas of the business. Members of The Travel Franchise who train as Not Just Travel homeworking travel consultants from as little as £2,995+ VAT, will enjoy the highest level of ongoing support, training and commission of any UK travel franchise.

With an even stronger focus on customer-led travel, the “new Not Just Travel” creates an improved and natural journey of progression for busy franchisee who want to be the best they can be.

The Travel Franchise continues to win multiple awards for its training programme, widely recognised as market leading. However, the company has invested in, and developed every aspect of its training programme, to help its consultant network achieve and unlock growth opportunities. Travel consultants of all levels of expertise will receive more training, support, mentoring and marketing tools, each created to help consultants sell and convert more efficiently.

Co-founder Steve Witt says: “New NJT represents a shift in mindset; taking our already expert consultants and turning them into industry Masters. Not Just Travel isn’t just about selling holidays, it’s about providing unsurpassed customer experience in every aspect. Hundreds upon hundreds of existing franchisees have taken the opportunity to recommit to us for the long-term because they want to be part of a winning, industry-leading team. We are thrilled that our members have chosen to match the even higher standards of excellence in the New NJT.”

The new and improved initiatives include the mandatory Academy for onboarding new franchisees; highly practical training which guides new franchisees through the skills, knowledge and practical steps needed to get their business off the ground.

The Mastery programme is an optional, intensive and immersive way for franchisees to become “Masters” in their abilities and knowledge of lucrative markets such as cruise, skiing and golf. Cruise Mastery is the first to launch and further develops NJT’s relationship with its Key Trade Partners, as well as assisting customers through the often complex booking process, while providing consultants dedicated support through its Cruise Division.

Finally, Not Just Travel’s first-ever Seminar at Sea will take place in September. An immersive training experience, Seminar at Sea will see hundreds of franchisee consultants benefit from intensive cruise-specific training provided by a number of industry experts onboard NCL’s new ship Prima.

NJT has made a huge investment in technology, including its brand-new phone-based app which will soon be unveiled. The app will revolutionise the way NJT engages with existing and potential customers by creating new, streamlined ways of communicating. The app will make it easier for everyone to communicate, share and get the information they need – cutting through the noise of a busy day in travel.

Mentorship programmes have been improved. Already NJT has the highest support ratio offered by any UK travel franchise business as it has over doubled (2.5x) its BDM team in the last six months, halving the size of teams the BDMs look after. Yet it is further investing in new BDMs and support staff.

Co-founder Paul Harrison says: “We never stop innovating and improving our offer to our members. We’re going into hyperdrive as the New NJT levels up our service across the board. We’ve built our business on relationships and everything we have done makes communication, selling and providing the best customer service more time-efficient, personal and effective.

He continues: “We’re already considered the best and so we could have just continued doing what we do, but we wanted to help our consultants become even better. Our improved training programmes have been designed for busy, time-poor consultants who want to see quick returns on their investment. The New NJT frees up our members to do what they love and do best – selling holidays.”

Harrison adds, “The New NJT heralds a new era in customer-led travel. By aligning customer needs with travel consultant aspirations, everyone will experience an improved service. As we invest and expand, our consultants can look forward to achieving even more profit.”

Franchises range from just £2,995+VAT to £49,995+VAT depending on the chosen package. In addition, if franchisees hit certain milestones, they can have their franchise fee refunded in full. This can be achieved in as little as 10 bookings. The £2,995 Lite Package was initially introduced during Covid as a more affordable option, but it has proven so popular that the company has decided to continue it.
