We love nothing more than to reward our Travel Counsellors for their hard work, while giving them opportunities to build relationships with our supplier partners and Support Hub colleagues. That’s why our Gold Weekends – which reward our best-performing franchisees – are so important to us. This year marks 20 years of ‘Gold’, so we’ve gone all-out with a choice of five trips that qualifying business owners can choose from this year.

In May, we hosted our first two Gold weekends in the Algarve and Sri Lanka – and last week, our third trip took place, with 47 Travel Counsellors jetting off to the Grecotel LUXME White Palace Hotel on the beautiful Greek island of Crete.

After some free time to mingle and settle into their new home for the next three nights, our Travel Counsellors were welcomed with a cocktail reception and BBQ dinner with live Greek music – and of course, some obligatory plate-smashing!

The following morning, everyone gathered for the Gold conference at sister property Grecotel Creta Palace – a chance for franchisees to hear from Support Hub colleagues and learn about everything we’re working on to further support them, their businesses, and their customers. Following the conference, a mezze lunch was served on the beach – giving our Travel Counsellors the chance to bask in the glorious Greek sunshine and catch up with fellow franchisees.

As day turned to night, it was time for a change of scenery as everyone was picked up and taken to Agreco Farm for dinner. Offering an authentic Cretan experience, the farm creates local dishes made with home-grown produce. The gastronomic experience was enhanced by traditional live music and dancing – and for those who wanted to continue the party, it was on to a club in the centre of Rethymnon where the cocktails continued to flow into the early hours.

The final full day started with a leisurely breakfast, then it was time to cool off from the scorching heat with a private pool party at one of the villas at the Amirandes Grecotel Boutique Resort – with a DJ on the decks, drinks flowing, and new friendships being formed, it was fantastic to see our franchisees celebrating each other’s success.

It wouldn’t be a Travel Counsellors Gold Weekend without a spectacular celebration dinner on the final evening – and as the sun set on our third Gold trip of the year, it was time for one final toast to the incredible things our business owners have achieved over the past 12 months.

A huge thanks go to the sponsors of our Crete Gold Weekend – Celebrity Cruises, Oceania, Cunard, and Intrepid.

Far from being an elitist club, Gold is open and accessible to all Travel Counsellors. You’ll be supported every step of the way to build and grow your businesses, and we’ve even had people hit Gold within a year. That’s the great thing about our franchise model – the more you put in, the more you get out. And because we’re not an MLM, you won’t have to waste valuable time ‘recruiting’ or ‘managing’ a team. Your only focus is you, your business, and your customers.
