Sun-seeking Brits are travelling overseas in record numbers. It is thought that 86 percent of the UK population went on holiday in the UK or abroad between August 2017 and August 2018 (ABTA’s 2018 Holiday Habits Report).
However, the uncertainty of Brexit could impact the travel and tourism industry and effect our holiday habits. In fact, it has been published recently that fewer Britons are choosing to travel to EU countries for their holidays (Thomas Cook). However, with that being said, Spain is still the most popular holiday destination.
Still, regardless of the chosen holiday destination, there are still millions of Brits going on holiday every year and therefore there is the demand for travel franchises to accommodate.
The Travel Franchise
The Travel Franchise helps people turn their passion for travel into a thriving home business. Partners don’t need any experience in the industry either. Out of the hundreds of people in the UK who have started a booming business with The Travel Franchise, 98 percent came with no travel experience. In fact, more than 700 people now operate a travel franchise with the brand and are making healthy sums of money from selling travel.
The Benefits of Becoming a Franchisee
Starting a new business can be scary and there are many things consider, and more importantly, to get right.

So, what exactly does it involve?
The Travel Franchise runs a training programme at its head office in Bournemouth that lasts five days where franchisees can get to grips with the essentials. After this is completed, franchisees should be equipped with all the necessary IT skills and infrastructure to operate confidently as an independent travel agent. Ongoing support it provided to every franchisee through a partnership with a highly knowledgeable Travel Mentor and Team Leader.
There is no concrete answer for what earnings will be as travel agents work on commission. So, it is based on your attitude and dedication to the role. Most of the travel consultants work from home, but they each have their own unique goal. Some franchisees do it on the side of their full-time job for that extra bit of cash from doing something they enjoy, whilst others opt to work full time. Therefore, franchisees can choose the investment level that suits them and their lifestyle.
On top of the pre training course, five-day training in Bournemouth, live bookable website, and marketing material, there is also the chance to come on one of the Millionaire’s Retreats. These are usually a week long and in beautiful destinations like Marbella, Morocco, Turkey and many more, and are dedicated towards franchisee development.

The fact that The Travel Franchise is the fastest growing travel business in the UK has not gone unnoticed.

It also won Touring Agency of the Year and Avis Car Hire Agent of the Year. The brand is honoured to have its hard work and dedication to outstanding customer service recognised.
Daley Thompson as Brand Ambassador
Double Olympic Gold Hero, Daley Thompson, joined The Travel Franchise as Brand Ambassador. He is regarded as one of the UK’s best Olympians after winning Double Olympic Gold in the notoriously hard discipline, the Decathlon, and also at a time when GB wasn’t a frequent Olympic gold medal winner. Therefore, there was no one better suited to educate and inspire franchisees into having the self-belief that anything is possible with hard work and dedication. Daley has also travelled the globe throughout his career and is still an avid traveller to this day. His role as Brand Ambassador will see him attending events and annual conferences, make speeches and feature on the website.

With its backing, the sky really is the limit as to what you can achieve as your own boss.
