Running your Travel Counsellors business

Enjoy the freedom of running your own business, with the 24/7 support of our global support team and franchisee community.

It’s the Travel Counsellors way of working, where freedom meets support, and customers come first.

How does Travel Counsellors work?

  1. Our Travel Counsellors talk about the flexibility to set their own hours and manage customers their way - that’s what they love most about running their own business.
  2. With an investment in technology, ‘customer comes first’ ethos and unlimited personalised support, including free online training, it’s no wonder that more travel professionals start their business with us than any other UK travel homeworking company!
  3. As a Travel Counsellor, we’ll never pigeonhole you into working on a specific destination, product or market – if you want to specialise, it’s your choice.
  4. Achieve the work-life balance you’ve always dreamt of, and run your business your way.

What’s expected of you

Whether you work from home, in your local coffee shop or the beach; it’s up to you. Whichever way you choose to work, we will have certain expectations to ensure your business is successful.

You’ll have flexibility, but you’ll need to:

  • Build your own customer base
  • Understand that you’ll be self-employed. You won’t be salaried as a Travel Counsellor, but that also means you get to keep 60% of the profit on whatever you sell. With no sales targets to hit, you have the freedom to be your own boss
  • Support yourself financially for the first year as you establish your business
  • Make a full-time commitment. The hours you work are up to you, but you need to dedicate time to be a success

We have a training course for everyone

We cover both leisure and corporate training, so you leave equipped and feeling confident to arrange all types of travel arrangements.

Uncapped Earning Potential

Unlike a lot of franchise businesses, we don’t set sales targets for you. But with uncapped earning potential, we’ll be challenging, supporting and empowering you to grow your business to be the very best it can be.

You’ll set your own working times, choosing the flexible hours that are right for you and your clients, and in return, you’ll make a full-time commitment to ensure that your business is successful.

Travel agent or tour operator?

The simple answer is both! You’ll have access to thousands of world-class products and rates - hotels, resorts, airlines, attractions, cruises, ancillaries - alongside the ability to work with specialist service providers and suppliers.

The only ‘rule’ is that you sell what’s right for your customer, because that’s our proven route to a successful and sustainable travel business. So, whether that’s a third-party operator’s holiday, or a bespoke itinerary you’ve crafted from scratch using our integrated digital booking platform, the only thing that’s fixed is the complete freedom you’ll enjoy to get it right for your customer every time.

It’s the flexibility that our Travel Counsellors love about our unique business model.
