The Travel Franchise announces “formidable growth”


The Travel Franchise has reported “formidable growth” in its membership network over the last few months, with December proving the busiest month of 2022 in terms of recruitment and January figures proving even stronger. 

Rising demand has been attributed to booming holiday sales with its customer-facing brand Not Just Travel experiencing its best year ever in 2022 and record breaking bookings in January. The Travel Franchise makes it easy and simple for anyone to start a travel agency from home, providing all the training and support required with packages starting from just £2,995 (+vat) attracting a wide range of franchisees who work part time, full time or in their spare time.

Co-founder Paul Harrison says: “We believe we probably have more new travel consultants join us each month, than most other travel franchises have per year. Well over 100 have joined in the last 12 months. Yet, our business isn’t just about the numbers; it’s about the quality, the training and the results. The amount of awards we have won and the level of commission we pay out every month speak for themselves.”

“We are seeing formidable growth in people wanting to invest in a homeworking travel agency as they seek work/life flexibility, travel opportunities and financial rewards.”

“With the current cost of living crisis, people want more income – and on their terms. The travel industry has truly bounced back and smart entrepreneurs recognise they can reap rewards providing they follow our business model and are prepared to work hard.”

Harrison continues: “Members are finishing their training one day, launching their Not Just Travel agency and booking thousands of pounds worth of holidays the next. January holiday bookings are breaking previous records and we’ve experienced the busiest Sunday in four years. Our members are profiting well from this travel boom, which looks set to continue for several months.”

Every consultant gets access to a Business Development Manager at the end of their training, a personal coach that is on-hand to help mentor and support them in growing their business. BDMs Nicky Bird and Paula Barker say that they have noticed that the calibre of new joiners has never been better. 

BDM Paula Barker said: “I have never seen so many consultants be successful so quickly. One travel consultant, a (full time) nurse, has booked £105k-worth of sales in the 55 days she has been with us (working in her spare time).”

Another married couple, Candy and Nathan Rose, who completed their training in mid December, sold £70k-worth of holidays in the first month, despite running two other businesses at the same time.

“When you consider that we have no travel experience whatsoever and can come up with those figures, it’s so exciting!” says Candy.

The couple are aiming to achieve The Travel Franchise’s unique Money-Back Challenge which refunds members’ franchise fee if they make a certain amount of commission in a year. 

“It’s a nice hook that really motivates us. We believe we will secure that and my personal goal is to sell much more in the first year.”

The Travel Franchise has reported that three franchisees hit their first-year sales targets set through its Money-Back Challenge in January. Some members’ bookings are so high they manage to achieve the challenge in just six months.
