Our Business Model

We've seen consecutive double-digit growth every year since opening in the UAE office in 2012, providing comprehensive financial protection for your customers, and 360° wrap-around support for you.

What is our business model?

  1. Our business model is built on partnerships. As a self-employed franchise holder arranging bespoke travel experiences for your customers, you’ll earn commission on the services you sell. Our commission is split 60/40 - 60% for you; 40% for us.
  2. For that 40%, you’ll receive our unwavering support and continual investment in your business to see its success.
  3. Although we’re a commission-based business, customer experience means everything to us. When presented with two-holiday options - one better for the customer and one better for your pocket - you’ll always put the customer first.
  4. Become a Travel Counsellor, and you’ll become part of a unique global travel company.

Trusted Travel

When it comes to travel, it’s important to know you’re booking with someone you can trust. As a company that truly cares, we place trust at the centre of everything we do. Our business model is built on establishing trusted personal relationships with our all of customers, whether that’s our leisure holidaymakers or our business travellers.

We underpin our unique personal service with our own extensive financial protection for customers. As well as the reassurance that work in partnership with thousands of hand-picked suppliers and trusted travel providers around the globe to ensure our customers receive the highest possible levels of protection, care, support and service wherever and whenever they travel with us.
