With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’re celebrating just a few of the fantastic duos who’ve joined to start their travel business together.
A successful duo can be a husband and wife, we’ve also seen girlfriends and boyfriends, sisters, mum and daughters, even best mates! All coming together to pursue their dream travel business.
Did you know? It won’t cost double to go into business together, in fact, you’ll pay just one franchise fee and you’ll both have a place in the initial training week at no extra cost. (This can no longer be guaranteed).
Husband & Wife, Mark and Isobel
The McCardies have loved all the travel opportunities that have come with being personal travel consultants. Read their story here.
Partners in life, Ben and Toni
Partners in their travel business since 2015, Ben and Toni are real grafters. They’ve become the go-to travel agents for the magical destination that is Lapland. Read their story here.
My top tip for any couples out there thinking about joining would be to look at each other’s strengths and focus on them.
Ideally, your strengths and weaknesses will compliment each other.
For example, I am better at the systems and customer service side of things, Ben is much better on social media than I am.
The Robertson Sisters
These two sisters launched their travel business from home and after just four months had already turned over £143,000 in holiday sales. Read their story here.

Retired Couple, Liz and Ian
Liz and Ian first became franchisees in December 2017. It was the perfect opportunity for them to pursue their life long dream of running a travel business. Read their story here.
