Why choose to join Travel Counsellors?

Remote working is nothing new, but the pandemic certainly accelerated its position to the ‘new normal’. Only 6% of people worked from home before the pandemic so remote working is a new concept for most.

With over 28 years’ experience, we have proudly built up our business with the remote worker at the forefront of everything we do.

With each of our 1900 Travel Counsellors working remotely since 1994, we’re proud to have pioneered the travel homeworking revolution.

So, how does it work?

Unlike some other franchise businesses, we don’t have shops or offer a booking system on our website. At Travel Counsellors, everything we do is centred around the success of our franchisees.

There’s no ‘one way’ of working, and we support all our franchisees to find a way to establish and grow their businesses. Some of our franchisees employ their own staff, others work in teams and split the profits, whilst others keep business separate, but share an office space and work together as a community . Others take a more traditional approach and work independently, but still take advantage of the caring, sharing TC Community.

All Travel Counsellors are self-employed, meaning they have complete freedom to work when, where and how they choose (yes, really!). There are some legal bits and pieces; you must be registered in the UK and we do ask for a full-time commitment so that you can provide the excellent customer service Travel Counsellors are known for.

Sounds good! But what do other people think?

Since September 2021 we have been named Travel Weekly’s Homeworking Agency of the Year 2021 and TTG Luxury Homeworking Business of the Year 2022. And we are nominated for more throughout the rest of 2022 ! Most importantly, our customers consistently rate Travel Counsellors 5* on Trustpilot!

These awards recognise the work of our Travel Counsellors. From tailor-making their dream holiday, to adding the personal touches and being their single point of contact, the Travel Counsellors' customer experience is unmatched.
