No other travel franchise featured in the Top 100 rankings! The company also shot to no.17 in HSBC’s Elite Franchise Top 100 leaderboard.
But we’re not just about the prizes!
Profits to match the praise
Our business model and commission structure are so strong (up to 85%), all you need is the energy and determination to succeed. Our top franchisees can make £100k in sales in a matter of weeks and sometimes £millions in just a few months.
Meet Becky, the most recent winner of our Money-Back Challenge, and part-time agent Jenifer who made £40k in a single cruise booking. See how Alison was a teacher one week and a travel agent the next and how Paul did the same in just five days.
Did we say “Money-Back Challenge”? We did indeed! Getting your initial investment absolutely free sounds like a dream – it’s a dream that regularly comes true for many of our agents and it could for you, too. Just hit a level of sales in a certain timeframe and your initial investment will wing its way back to you, meaning you get your business absolutely free!
The dream starts here
Despite the high earning potential and executive treatment, our doors are always open to newcomers. If you’ve no experience or background in this industry then you’re in good company – around 98% of our franchisees never worked in travel before joining us.
“Amazing, life-changing, fabulous,” says our travel franchisee Susan. “The training, the back-up, the wide choice of suppliers… It really is the best decision I ever made.”
You’re joining a vast, connected family of true holiday-makers – people making unforgettable experiences happen for themselves and their loved ones. To begin your journey with The Travel Franchise, start by filling in the short form below!
