Demand for our travel franchises has soared over the last few months, with December proving the busiest month of 2022 in terms of recruitment and January figures proving even stronger.
Co-founder Paul Harrison says: “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.”
Head of franchise marketing Jenny Farenden adds: “Good news travel fast! Booming holiday sales with our customer-facing brand Not Just Travel experiencing its best year ever in 2022 and record breaking bookings in January means our new business owners are making incredible sales and profiting from a travel boom which looks set to continue.”
Business development manager, Paula Barker, who is on hand to help and mentor new business owners says: “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. And she works in her spare time!”Paula Barker, business development manager
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.
Harrison adds: “Members are finishing their training one day, launching their Not Just Travel agency and booking thousands of pounds worth of holidays the next.
“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.”Paul Harrison, co-founder of The Travel Franchise and Not Just Travel
However, both Harrison and Farenden are emphatic that 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.”Paul Harrison, co-founder of The Travel Franchise and Not Just Travel
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.
Candy and Nathan Rose are among those who are also aiming to achieve our 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.”Candy and Nathan Rose
Three franchisees hit their first-year sales targets set through our Money-Back Challenge in January and some have achieved this in just six months.
While some are attracted by flexible work hours, others want to travel or top up their savings or pension.
“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,” says Harrison.
“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.”Paul Harrison, co-founder of The Travel Franchise and Not Just Travel
