Who are we?

Established for over 20 years and with over 550 franchisees, The Travel Franchise has built a solid reputation in providing quality travel consultancy services to people across the world.

The Travel Franchise was established over 20 years ago with a simple aim: to give you the business model and mentorship you need to run your own travel agency.

Whether you work from your spare room or from the beach, the local coffee shop or one of your favourite quiet cafes around the world, you’ll be the focal point of a global travel experience for your clients and the head of a lifestyle most people only dream about.

Our franchisees trade under our consumer-facing brand name Not Just Travel Ltd, giving them around £1bn a year in buying power and access to some of the biggest names in travel. That’s unlimited holiday options for your clients and huge business potential for you.

With 550+ franchise partners, we’re delighted to have been named Homeworking Agency of the Year 10 times and, in fact, we also hold the 10th spot for being the 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)!  

We also work with fully ABTA and ATOL-protected travel providers, so your customers can enjoy complete peace of mind.

“12 months in I still cannot believe the value you get …I can only say it’s changed my life.”

– Judy, Travel Franchisee

How does it work?

First things first, you’ll join a five-day, online induction course – rated “excellent” on TrustPilot – with the founders of The Travel Franchise. Once complete, you’ll be a genuine travel agent with the backing of experts, dynamic business systems and full access to:

  • Millions of UK holidays
  • 450+ suppliers and operators
  • Deals the public never see

You’ll benefit from daily support, your own management mentor, complete website and IT infrastructure, and the best part: we take care of all the paperwork at Head Office, so you only need to focus on making your bookings.

Every franchisee is also offered a growing list of educational resources and exclusive international training events. With a choice of Pro and Elite investment levels from £2,995 to £29,995, you can start small and go as far as you want.

And like many of our franchisees, you could start making bookings on the very day you finish the course!

“We finished training at 3pm on the Friday and by 4.30pm on the same day we had our first booking… What an amazing feeling!”

– Natasha & James

What else do we offer?


Most of our consultants start part-time and build their business around other commitments.


We come from all walks of life – what we do have in common is a passion for travel and success.


Up to 75% of every holiday you sell is yours to keep – it’s the best commission in the business!


Our Money-Back Challenge means your initial investment could be completely free once you hit your target.


All the travel you want! No more squeezing onto the tube or nodding off in a meeting – you could be based anywhere in the world, living the very lifestyle you sell to your clients.

“We love that we’ve escaped the 9-5 and can travel the world whenever we want … It really is the best decision I could have made.”

Susan, Travel Franchisee

Why wait?

This is the most flexible, life-affirming business you could hope to lead. With hours to suit your schedule, with your partner and family (and pets!) by your side, and with executive control of beautiful experiences for yourself and others, you’ll never look back!

Why sit in a meeting or the daily commute when you could be like Mo, who made a million-pound booking in his first three months. And like Natasha & James, Suzy, Ross, Maureen, Ben and many more, you could turn our unique Money-Back Challenge into a welcome bonus. This really is the first step on the adventure of a lifetime!


I honestly cannot believe that there is another franchise out there that offers as much training and help as we get. I know it sounds cheesy, but we are really like one big happy family.”
