Over 700 people can't be wrong - let's hear from one of our franchisees - Mark Samways.
Sometimes it takes a pivotal moment to change your life and for Mark Samways, the decision to quit his job in the motor industry and fly solo with the mission of running his own business was not a decision to be taken lightly – but he is so glad that he did.
Mark had decided that a franchise was the best way to fulfil his ambition of running his own business. He swiftly identified that The Travel Franchise was the only franchise he wanted to partner with and cites that the key criteria that influenced his decision was the professionalism shown to him by co-founder Paul Harrison (who guided him through the sign up process) the incentive of being able to earn back his original franchise fee back via the Money Back Challenge and the ongoing training and support from the entire Travel Franchise team.
Having joined the business in June 2018, Mark undertook the original training at the head office in Bournemouth which provided him with the knowledge and expertise required to help him launch his business and get it off the ground.
Within a few weeks, Mark was trading and was generating bookings. He recalled:
“It was hard work with an awful lot to take it, but I feel it was a great grounding for the future” He added:
“I welcomed the high level of support from both the team at Head Office and my Personal Travel Consultant who was on hand to answer any questions that I might have.”
As well as the initial training, Mark has further developed his knowledge by attending important training events such as the Elite Experience and the Millionaire’s Retreat. Both these courses which are held in international locations all over the world provide first-class training for franchisees. It also is an ideal opportunity to meet other franchisees and make life-long friends.
Mark is always keen to enhance his skills and experience and has also attended other international trips such as a ski trip to Banff which helped generate bookings from his customers to Canada. He has also attended cruise training and is using this helpful knowledge to sell even more cruises to his customers.
Would Mark recommend becoming a travel franchisee?
Absolutely! He loves the community feel
of the business and said:
“Simply, The Travel Franchise is a family that welcomes you and is always there for you!”
