Join the Homeworking Agency of the Year and the Best Travel Franchise in the UK
Over the past 20 years, The Travel Franchise has developed the ideal business model and support systems for anyone wanting to set themselves up as a travel agent. We can confidently say this because we’ve been voted the 10th best franchise in the whole of the UK, beating big brands like Vodafone (no.12) and sitting hot on the heels of prestigious food and beverage brands like Burger King (no.8) and KFC (no.6)!
Hundreds of people have set up thriving businesses with us, giving them the freedom to do what they love - indulge in their passion for travel. We want you to work wherever and whenever you want, all while enjoying the lifestyle you love.
““I have been with The Travel Franchise for just over 10 years and it’s been an incredible journey. We love that we’ve escaped the 9-5 and can travel the world whenever we want.” – Susan & Ian, Travel Consultants since 2013” - Susan & Ian, Travel Consultants since 2013
Send your clients on amazing holidays
Joining The Travel Franchise allows you to take control of your life. You’ll be able to choose where and when you work. All you need is a computer and internet connection, meaning you take your office with you wherever in the world you happen to be. As well as booking holidays for your clients, you’ll get the chance to travel as well - often taking your family and friends along for the ride.
By the time you finish your week’s training, you’ll be a genuine travel agent with the backing of experts who really care about your journey through this business. Whether you’re sending families to Florida or newlyweds to Florence or the Caribbean, we’ll make sure you have access to the widest choice of holidays around the world along with first-class professional backing:
- 450+ suppliers and tour operators
- Support and incentives from 45+ Key Trade Partners
- ABTA & ATOL protected holidays
- Access to deals the public never see
- £1bn in holiday-buying power every year
No travel industry experience required
Hardly any of our franchisees come from the travel industry. Our family of franchises come from a diverse network of backgrounds, ages, nationalities and skill-sets – the thing they have in common is their passion for travel, understanding of good customer service and a desire to succeed.
Backed by our unique infrastructure, world-class training and the team of mentors who genuinely want to see you succeed, you’ll benefit from:
- Full Business Support with your own website and marketing support
- Full Tech Packages such as a custom-built CRM, booking systems, quotes builders, commission tracking and payment facilities
- Comprehensive Training and ongoing support every step of the way
- Invites to overseas familiarisation trips
You can even keep your current job or business
You determine your timetable. In fact, many of our franchisees start part-time and build their franchise alongside their existing job. We want you to keep your flexibility, autonomy and freedom to grow at your own speed – that way, you can start small and go big!
With The Travel Franchise in your corner, success is a given
We can’t wait to welcome you to our five-day online, live induction training course – most often rated “excellent” on Trustpilot – and introduce you to your Business DevelopmentManager who’ll stay by your side. We also organise intensive training experiences like our Elite Experience and Millionaire’s Retreat, hosted in five-star resorts in places like Cyprus, Dubai and Mauritius, where you’ll learn tips and tricks from business and marketing gurus, including our award-winning company founders.
“My first ever holiday booking was one week after the initial training. I needed help with the quote and my PM helped me all the way through it.” - Deepkamal, Travel Consultant
With a team like this behind you, and such a network of help and encouragement, you can make your first travel bookings the day your finish training – as a matter of fact, most of our franchisees do just that!
Your franchise could be completely free
With The Travel Franchise, you can start immediately with a one-off investment. We don’t bamboozle you with a string of hidden costs. Plus, with our unique Money-Back Challenge, you can even earn your fee back – so the investment will cost you absolutely nothing at all!
Our franchisee Raine earned £26k in just one month, while Ross made a single-family booking worth £76 and Ben made £340k in his first year. Our top franchisees have now hit millions in commissions – so the incentive to earn your fee back is very possible and very real.
You choose your investment
We offer a range of investments to new franchisees, from our “Lite” package at £2,995 (+VAT), all the way to the “Entrepreneurial” level at £29,995 (+VAT). Our most popular package is our Elite package costing £14,995 (+VAT).
Whichever you choose, you’ll have all the tools you need to start straight away – it just depends how far and how big you want to go.
“12 months in I still cannot believe the value you get. The training, weekly calls, head office support, marketing support, the new landing pages…it’s all just incredible. There isn’t a stand-out highlight, I can only say it’s changed my life.” - Judy, Travel Consultant since 2019
But don’t just take our word for it: we’ve won Homeworking Agency of the Year more than 10 times, and the Elite Business Awards’ Best Travel Franchise in the UK 2022. The company also shot to no.17 in HSBC’s Elite Franchise Top 100 in 2023. We’re also members of the IFA (International Franchise Association) and QFA (Quality Franchise Association). For these reasons among many, you know you’re in safe hands.
The best part is, you can travel as much as you want!
We’re currently seeing an unprecedented boom in homeworking and travel. This year, Not Just Travel’s holiday bookings have surpassed those made in 2022 every single month. Even in July and August, typically quiet months, home-based agents like Matt and Ash, who have only been operating their agency for 17 months are on course to take £250-£300k in bookings despite being abroad for four weeks travelling.
So, the next time you’re stuffed on a crowded commuter train or sitting through an unaspiring work or college lecture, remember where you could be: running your own travel business, in your own time, from anywhere in the world.
“Amazing, life-changing, fabulous, difficult to put into words. The training, the back-up, the wide choice of suppliers, being ABTA registered. It really is the best decision I could have made.” - Susan, Travel Consultant since 2013
