If you're interested in the travel sector, it may come as no surprise that residents of the UK clocked up an incredible 7.2 million visits abroad in June 2017. And they spent £4.6 billion on travel in that one month alone. If you are considering starting your own travel business, you will be delighted to hear that this represents a 4% increase in the number of trips and a 15% increase in spending, when compared to the same month in 2016.
Clearly, the Brits love their holidays. Business travel is also a lucrative sector, as is helping folk to take short “staycations” in the UK. One of the best ways to cash in on this is undoubtedly a travel agency franchise.
Some of the most successful travel agencies are happy to share their proven business models with selected entrepreneurs, to help them to set up profitable enterprises. This includes for example, online operator Explorer Travel, which supports a large network of work from home travel businesses. The Global Travel company has various entry levels for travel agency franchises, including work from home or physical shop fronts.
Award winning company GoCruise is also currently recruiting new start-ups.
The benefits of taking this route to self employment are clear. This is a complex and problematic sector for a new stand alone venture. A travel agency franchise “buys you” vital branding which customers are more likely to trust when booking their precious holidays. It also packages up the training, contacts and technology you need to be successful. A franchiser is sure to help with finding the right location and marketing your business effectively.
Then of course, a ready made website as provided by a franchiser for the day you open is crucial – whether your travel agency franchise is online or on the high street. Which travel agency franchise will get you where you want to be in business? Our insight could well be the passport to success in this dynamic industry. Place another order with this writer
