Our Franchise Model

Starting your own business is a bold move, but we are the pioneer of travel homeworking and a joint venture in The UAE with dnata Travel, so you really couldn’t be in safer hands.

Why start a franchise?

  1. There’s a host of benefits to starting your own franchise business - higher success rates, ongoing support and lower investment costs, but with so many franchises and freezone licence companies out there, how do you decide which one’s right for you?

How does the Travel Counsellors franchise model work?

It’s important to choose a franchise that has an impeccable track record. Travel Counsellors have set the trend in flexible travel homeworking for 25 years. Our proven business model works by building meaningful, trusted relationships, leading to referrals and a high level of repeat bookings. It works because it’s a partnership. Your expertise and drive, together with our investment, support, technology and community. It’s already working for more than 1,800 Travel Counsellors across the globe, and it can work for you too.

What does the Travel Counsellors proven business model give me?

Confidence - you're with a world-leading travel homeworking company.

Be in control of your earnings

Earnings are uncapped and there are no sales targets. Quite simply, the more you put into your business, the more you’ll get out of it. Our flexible business model supports you equally, whether your ambition is massive or more modest. It really is up to you.

Our model is commission-based. That means you’ll earn money on a commission basis on the bookings that you make.
