More than just fun in the sun. Franchisees review our free game-changing Millionaire’s Retreat in Fuerteventura

Last week we took 50 consultants to Fuerteventura for a jammed-packed Millionaire’s Retreat – a short-haul trip that’s included as part of your franchise if you invest in our most popular Elite package.

While the Retreat is fun, it’s far from any average holiday and is aimed at helping people new to travel grow their business fast! 

Led by co-founders Paul Harrison and Steve Witt, and accompanied by our brand ambassador TV-star Hayley Sparkes, consultants spent the mornings and afternoons training in a classroom-style setting with experts leading seminars aimed at building knowledge, confidence and mindset.

Here’s what co-founder Steve says about the Retreat:

“The retreats are a fun way to learn in the sunshine about the travel industry and how to grow your business. To date we’ve taken people to more than 20 different destinations. Agents get to experience popular resorts and hotels, to learn from industry experts and from fellow travel consultants who’ve been really successful.  

“Everyday is different, we pack a huge amount in teaching business skills, life coaching skills and sales skills, essentially everything you need to take your business to the next level.” 

While Paul tackled some of the most common mistakes agents make when they first launch a business, Steve broke down some of the barriers many face giving agents over 21 ‘Rules for Success’.

Breakout workshops looked at repeat bookings, getting referrals, our Key Trade Partners, business planning and sales’ techniques, to name a few.

So what did agents think? In the past many agents have returned from the Retreat saying that it was worth the franchise fee alone. And this Retreat was no different, with many consultants having a ‘lightbulb’ moment.

“The experience encouraged me to reflect on my current strategies and business plan with the goal of growing my business into a million pound enterprise,” said Dawn, a franchisee that joined late last year without any previous travel experience and has already made thousands of pounds worth of commission. 

While brand ambassador Hayley Sparkes revealed some handy tips on marketing through social media, our cruise guru, Duncan, was on hand to teach consultants about one of the most lucrative areas of travel.

“I was so motivated that instead of exploring the area on the final afternoon, I utilised the time to put one of the strategies into action on the last day. This led to the successful sale of two cruise bookings on MSC and P&O Cruises, helping me achieve a significant milestone in my business.”

Meanwhile, Louis, who recently won our Money-Back Challenge said: “It definitely gave me motivation to boost sales and the confidence to engage more with customers. I will definitely be putting some of Paul’s tips into practice.”

And Regis, a relatively new joiner, said his favourite session was how to become a millionaire.

“Steve went through each part, you can turn over 100,000, work for 10 years, blah, blah, blah, or you can build up your business to a certain level and then sell it. And I don’t think many people had even thought of that process. So that was very interesting. I think a lot of light bulbs went boom. That essentially, you didn’t just purchase a franchise so that you could sell holidays. It’s your business and it’s up to you how much you grow it to. So that was the light bulb moment.”

Consultants were hosted at TUI’s Magic Life resort overlooking a sweeping sandy beach on Jandia, Fuerteventura, and representatives from TUI, just one of our 450 partners, were on hand to chat to consultants about its products. 

However, the trip wasn’t all work and no play… There were long lunches and dinners, cocktail parties and evenings at leisure allowing agents to mingle and make friends. 

“One of the great things about our unique Retreats is that consultants get to meet fellow travel consultants, make contacts that help them grow their business, plus make friends for life,” said Steve.
