How does Travel Counsellors work?

  1. Our Travel Counsellors talk about the flexibility to set their own hours and manage customers their way - that’s what they love most about running their own business.
  2. Join us and you get to choose if you want to specialise. You’ll never be pigeon-holed into working on a specific destination, product or market, unless you want to.
  3. So this is it, your chance to get the work-life balance you dream of and run your business, your way.

Make it work for you

Work from home, set up an office with other Travel Counsellors, or run a travel agency with staff - it’s up to you. Whichever way you work, we’ll have certain expectations to ensure your business is successful.

You'll have flexibility, but you'll need to:

  • Build your own customer base
  • Understand that you’ll be self-employed. You won’t be salaried as a Travel Counsellor, but that also means you get to keep 60% of the profit on whatever you sell. With no sales targets to hit, you have the freedom to be your own boss
  • Support yourself financially for the first year as you establish your business
  • Make a full-time commitment. The hours you work are up to you, but you need to dedicate time to be a success

Ready to take a look at our different training courses?

We cover both leisure and corporate training, so you leave equipped and feeling confident to arrange all types of travel arrangements.

You set your own sales targets, not us

Unlike a lot of franchise businesses, we don’t set sales targets for you. But with uncapped earning potential, we’ll be challenging, supporting and empowering you to grow your business to be the very best it can be.

You’ll set your own working times, choosing the flexible hours that are right for you and your clients, and in return, you’ll make a full-time commitment to ensure that your business is successful.

Will I be a Travel agent, tour operator or TMC?

The simple answer is all three! You’ll have access to thousands of world-class products and rates - hotels, resorts, airlines, attractions, cruises, ancillaries - alongside the ability to work with specialist service providers and suppliers.

The only 'rule' is that you sell what’s right for your customer, because that’s our proven route to a successful and sustainable travel business. So, whether that’s a third-party operator’s holiday, or a bespoke itinerary you’ve crafted from scratch using our integrated digital booking platform, the only thing that’s fixed is the complete freedom you’ll enjoy to get it right for your customer every time.

It’s the flexibility that our Travel Counsellors love about our unique business model.
