Eamonn Holmes OBE joins The Travel Franchise

TV broadcaster Eamonn Holmes OBE has joined the company and will be championing The Travel Franchise and our customer-facing Not Just Travel brand.

“What I love the most about Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise is the passion everybody has – not just for travel, but for helping others. I really want to be a part of this,” says Eamonn.

As the world’s longest-serving breakfast television anchor, having amassed over 26 years with GMTV and Sky News, Eamonn is perhaps best known for being a presenter of ITV’s This Morning but he is also a seasoned traveller.

“Having Eamonn join us is a real coup as he has a wealth of experience in the travel sector hosting travel programmes such as BBC1’s Holiday programme,” says co-founder Paul Harrison.

Eamonn stands as a staunch advocate for travel agents, consistently championing the invaluable contributions they make to the travel industry.

Says Eamonn: “Working in news means that I often see or report on how the travel industry is disrupted. During the pandemic it was clear that those who had booked through travel agents had support and advice when they needed it most.

“If I want something done I get someone with expertise in that field to do it and travel is no different. I would never think of booking my holiday independently. I pick up the phone and talk to a travel consultant who I know and trust, and who can add a layer of value and security to
help navigate any uncertainties, ensuring a smoother and more enjoyable travel experience.”

Eamonn is looking forward to meeting our franchisees at conferences and our international overseas retreats where he will be a motivational and keynote speaker.

“I think it’s fascinating that the majority of consultants have worked in other professions and yet they’ve chosen to retrain and do something completely different, to start a new adventure in travel.”
