Meet Alison Cooper. Alison has always loved travelling. In her 20’s she did a 4-year language degree in which she travelled to many countries. She then worked for 7 years in marketing for a travel company, before deciding to become a teacher. After 22 years of teaching she couldn’t see herself within the same profession, so turned to the travel franchise.
Alison loves planning boutique itineraries. This year she received a unique enquiry on her travel website following a Facebook comment. It was a gentleman who hadn’t travelled for years, he was a big fan of country and western music. With his girlfriend, who was also a fan of the music group in this genre, they were looking to travel to America whilst the band were on tour, as well as get married!
We caught up with Alison to find out more…
So, why did you choose the travel franchise?
I spent hours watching the video tour on The Travel Franchise. A few of my friends knew Rachel and Colman, who are existing Not Just Travel consultants. I liked how they worked and their values, I felt they were very similar to my own. I wanted to choose my own hours and watching the video tour I felt I had a light bulb moment, I could see myself being a personal travel consultant and running a business almost immediately. The support and training were a big thing that caught my intention. I didn’t look at any other competitors out there, as I was so convinced I didn’t feel the need to.
Tell us about your first ever booking as a personal travel consultant?
My first ever holiday booking as a travel consultant was for my mother in law. I booked her on a holiday with the award-winning river cruises from Riviera Travel. This is a cruise that goes to cities with amazing history and goes right into the heart of the destination. The holiday was booked for April 2020, but following the virus and global lockdown, we rebooked it for April 2021.
All the best to Alison as she continues to grow her business. We look forward to seeing her at one of our virtual training sessions or catch-up in the community Facebook group in which there are daily updates, advice, and useful content.
