Our Business Model

Our proven model provides complete peace of mind.

Established in Ireland since 2005, with 70+ travel professionals

What is our business model?

  1. Our business model is built on partnerships. As a self-employed franchise holder arranging bespoke travel experiences for your customers, you’ll earn commission on the services you sell. Our commission is split 60/40 - 60% for you; 40% for us.
  2. For that 40%, you’ll receive our unwavering support and continual investment in your business to see its success.
  3. Although we’re a commission-based business, customer experience means everything to us. When presented with two-holiday options - one better for the customer and one better for your pocket - you’ll always put the customer first.
  4. Become a Travel Counsellor, and you’ll become part of a unique global travel company.
