Independent Agency Owners

Are you currently running your own travel agency, but looking to scale your business without all the admin? You're in the right place.

Temple ruin in India

Travel Counsellors have a unique opportunity for agency owners to do what they love, without the massive overheads involved with owning a travel agency today.

Most agency owners have worked so hard to gain recognition and build up their business despite the many challenges along the way. However, at some point they feel they have reached the limit in terms of how much more they can grow.

From support with commercial, marketing and business development to a €6million annual investment in technology to support your business, we are with you every step of the way whilst you move your business across and beyond.

  • Keep your identity and your staff - the choice is yours
  • 24/7 support and assistance from our Irish and Global Teams while moving your business across to Travel Counsellors
  • Business coaching and mentoring by qualified professionals
  • You choose where you work; from home or a rented office space

We've helped numerous travel agencies move their well-known, high-street agencies over to the Travel Counsellors franchise.
