Consultant nails £22k cruise 39,000ft in the air with our help late one evening

When we say you can earn money as a Not Just Travel consultant from anywhere, we really mean it. 

While some agents take bookings in the airport, on the beach or on the school run, consultant Nong sealed a cruise sale literally out of the sky.

Homeworking travel consultant Nong, was about to board her flight to Jamaica in November to attend our free Elite company mentorship retreat when a client contacted her to say they’d like to go ahead with her quote for a multi-generational cruise with Norwegian Cruise Lines, one of our key trade partners.

Knowing that she needed to secure specific flights and the right cabins, time was of the essence which means Nong could not wait until her 13-hour flight landed. 

Luckily for Nong, her Virgin Atlantic flight offered the ability to buy wi-fi access, so once in the air, Nong whipped out her laptop, logged onto our booking system and got to work (yes, the beauty of this business is that it’s so flexible you can do it from anywhere!)

However, Nong had never booked a cruise with NCL before and the booking isn’t always straightforward the first time round.

“Each cruise line has its own nuances and I needed some help,” said Nong. 

Nong, however, is a member of our Cruise Mastery Programme – a structured 12-month training programme that enables our agents to master the art of selling lucrative cruises and crucially get support from our expert team of cruise business development managers (BDMs) many of which have years of experience booking cruises. 

Despite it being 8pm, Holly, a BDM and member of our dedicated cruise team, was on hand back on terra firma to answer Nong’s urgent emails and WhatsApp. 

“Holly was amazing. It was after working hours and she didn’t have to help me, but she was incredible. She instantly replied to my messages sending me screen shots and guiding me through the booking process. I couldn’t have done it without her.” 

Between them, the £22,000 booking was made and confirmed some 39,000ft in the air. And as cruising offers great commission and a high level of repeat customers, Nong began celebrating before even beginning her free Caribbean trip.

If you want to launch your own travel business a franchise gives you the ability to build your business and start making profit quickly. But make sure you invest in one like ours that gives you ongoing support (from a real person) as well as live training so that you can ask questions as you learn (see the UK’s top 10 franchises here).

As the number one franchise for people new to travel (98 per cent of franchisees have never worked in the travel industry), we’ve got an impressive ratio of BDMs to consultants who have years of experience in the industry – and they are on hand at least six days a week (often more) to help you make a success of your business.

Our other USPs include being able to become an expert in niche travel products such as cruise, one of the most lucrative products in travel with high commissions and a high number of repeat bookings. 

Nong loves the flexibility being a consultant gives her, but best of all she loves to travel. She loves that we offer free mentorship retreats abroad to exotic destinations like Jamaica and that we’re always there to help. Want to earn money like Nong doing something you love with our support?
