Paul, Co-Founder of The Travel Franchise received a phone call from franchisee Ben (aged 34) as he couldn't wait to share his exciting and amazing news. Over the course of 12 months, Ben had managed to complete the Money Back Challenge and was going to get 100% of his franchise fee back as a result. Ben had this to say... I’m a bit of a spreadsheet freak. I’ve been counting down the numbers to hit the Money Back Challenge for the past 12 months. As soon as I hit it I shared the news. Dave,...Read More

About The Travel Franchise company
The Travel Franchise helps people start travel agencies from home, with our award-winning business model and our customer-facing Not Just Travel brand.
We’ve been awarded Homeworking Agency of the Year 5 years in a row, as well as #1 UK Homeworking Agency in 2020 by the Travel Trade Gazette.
Joining The Travel Franchise gets you an outstanding level of ongoing support, mentorship and training, both in terms of your travel knowledge and business planning and execution.
You can work part-time or full-time, the business fits around your family or other work commitments. You will get everything you need to get started immediately and be successful from the get-go; in fact, many of our franchisees get their first customers before they even finish the initial training!
We are rated 5 stars on review sites such as Trustpilot for both our franchise offer as well as the service provided by the travel consultants operating under the Not Just Travel brand. Not Just Travel is also on the #1 slot in review categories including airline tickets, cruises and travel deals.
As a franchisee, you’ll get access to exclusive and unique programmes such as Partners In Travel to help grow your business. You can also get your franchise for free with our Money-Back Challenge.
Why should you choose The Travel Franchise?
The travel industry is highly regulated and requires commercial relationships in order to trade successfully. We make it all possible for you. As a franchisee, you’ll get everything you need to start your travel business successfully.
What you'll get includes: ABTA and ATOL protections for your customers; specific travel agent software and technology; outstanding commercial terms with over 450 travel suppliers; your own marketing website as well as campaign-specific landing pages. We also provide you with ready-made social media and marketing campaigns.
You will also get ongoing head-office support with our team doing the admin for you.
On top of that, you will get a dedicated Partnership Manager who is a head office employee whose job is to be at your side daily whenever you need them.
A travel business can generate fantastic returns with low overheads when you are part of an established franchise model like ours. All you need is a phone and a computer, and you can do it from home – or from anywhere you like!
You can choose from 3 different packages: our Lite package starts at just £2,795 (with a £299 monthly fee which allows you to spread the start-up cost without getting less for your money) and our other packages range from £11,995 - £29,995, depending on the size of travel business being built and the support you want. There are also payment plans available for all packages.
Our business model is based on commissions: a travel supplier pays you a fee for selling their holidays.
The typical commission is 10% of the holiday value. This means that a £3,500 holiday would generate approximately £350 in commission. If you were to work part-time on your travel business and make only 2 sales per week, you would get £35k+ in commissions per year!
Some of our franchisees want to bring in an additional income and run their business part-time, whereas others want to get to 7 figure turnovers as fast as possible and take on employees to do their day-to-day operations. Regardless of which category you fit in, we have many success stories to inspire you.
Remember: There are over 40 million holiday makers in the UK every year. You only need a few hundred regular customers in order to create an amazing travel business!
You can trust that we care about your success: we’ve been awarded Homeworking Agency of the Year 5 years in a row, as well as #1 UK Homeworking Agency in 2020 by the Travel Trade Gazette.

What we are looking for in a franchisee

What we look for in our franchisees is a real passion for travel as well as the drive to grow their own business with entrepreneurial spirit. If you follow our guidance and best practices, you can earn an uncapped income. But, this is your business - so you set the targets you want to achieve!
