Newsflash! TV broadcaster Eamonn Holmes OBE has joined The Travel Franchise – find out how he can help you if you launch a travel business with us

We’re thrilled to announce that TV broadcaster Eamonn Holmes OBE has joined The Travel Franchise and our customer-facing brand Not Just Travel and will be representing the company and its consultants.

To have one of the biggest names in breakfast TV join one of the biggest names in travel is news indeed and we can’t wait to see what the unparalleled collaboration will bring.

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 his captivating charisma and for being a presenter of ITV’s This Morning. But he also has extensive travel experience hosting BBC1’s Holiday programme and filming How The Other Half Lives.

What’s more, he’s also been a loyal supporter of travel agents, particularly during the pandemic, and champions the value they add to anyone booking a holiday.

Commenting on the announcement Eamonn Holmes OBE said: “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 and I really want to be a part of this.

“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, advice and expertise when they needed it most. I would never think of booking my holiday independently myself. I pick up a phone and talk to a travel consultant who I know and trust and that can add value and security.”

Eamonn was introduced to our company by TV presenter Hayley Sparkes who is our brand ambassador. He was particularly impressed to hear that many of our franchisees have never worked in travel before yet become hugely successful, often in a short time frame with our training and support.

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

“I always say that if you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life. And there certainly seems to be great enthusiasm amongst the company’s consultants. Many people are obviously searching for their ideal profession and clearly many franchisees have found it. Travel is a magical thing.”

Our co-founder Paul Harrison is delighted to have Eamonn onboard: “He has an instantly recognisable face in households across the nation. During Covid, Eamonn was a massive champion of the travel industry; now he’s the champion of The Travel Franchise and Not Just Travel.”

Harrison says that Eamonn will assist in many areas of the business and attend our conferences and international retreats as a keynote motivational speaker. 

This month he will attend our Seminar at Sea cruise onboard the ship Sky Princess.

“I can’t wait to meet some of the franchisees,” says Eamonn.

Consultant Ami, who was new to travel when she joined us two years ago and sold over £270,000 worth of holidays in April, said:

“I’m absolutely thrilled to have Eamonn on board, he’s such a great addition and will be recognised by so many.

“Having such an association with someone so famous will really help us push our sales to the next level and his backing will help give our customers the reassurance that booking with a travel consultant really adds value and peace of mind.”
