Our homeworking consultants have booked over 50% more holidays in January than in the same month in 2022.
The increase means our customer-facing Not Just Travel brand has recorded a rise of 65% in sales with profits rising by over 80%. The figures indicate Not Just Travel is over-indexing industry competitors by more than double.
Paul Harrison, co-founder of Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise says: “The number of bookings made by each consultant is our best measure of success.
“The fact that it is higher than ever before proves that they are expert, confident and well-trusted by customers. This is naturally reflected in our sales.”
Our consultant Ben Casey sold £324,000-worth of holidays – a 30% increase on the same month in 2022.
And he’s not alone.
Many of our top performing agents sold between £100,000-£500,000 in January 2023.
“It’s no wonder we have seen increasing demand to join The Travel Franchise,” says Harrison.
“As there was a three-month waiting list for training we have added another date – February 27 – which means that those new business owners can still attend our Millionaire mentorship retreat in Cyprus in March and learn how to skyrocket their business.”
Both Ben Casey and Paul Harrison report demand for high-ticket luxury or milestone holidays as people continue to invest more in dream trips post-Covid.
Casey says his average booking value for January 2023 is up 57% on January 2022, from £6,252 to £9,818.
Says Harrison: “Pre-pandemic, we used to book £10k+ holidays every few days, now they are as frequent as every other booking. Our increased sales and booking values show that people will sacrifice many other lifestyle items before they reconsider their holidays.”
Travel consultant Lloydie Gardiner, who bought a travel franchise when a road traffic accident forced him to give up his job, sold over £280,000-worth on holidays in January and is currently pricing up a big £200,000k wedding in the Maldives.
Last year Lloydie sold over £1.3 million holidays and he expects a growth of at least 15 per cent this year.
“This is just the beginning of the ‘peak’ season which traditionally runs until late March’” says Harrison, who predicts a bumper year for consultants in 2023.
