Our Travel Franchise Model

Why start a franchise?

  1. Franchise businesses have higher success rates, provide ongoing support, and there are lower initial investment costs. There are lots of franchise and homeworking companies out there, so the challenge is finding the right one for you.

The Travel Counsellors franchise model, explained

We’ve been setting the trend in flexible travel homeworking since 1994, in the UK and 2007, in South Africa. Our proven model works by building meaningful, trusted relationships, leading to referrals and a high level of repeat bookings.

We create a true partnership - your expertise and drive, together with our investment, support, technology and community. It’s already working for more than 1,900 Travel Counsellors across the globe, and it can work for you too.

What do you get from the Travel Counsellors franchise model

In a word, confidence. You’re with a world-leading travel homeworking company.

Our success rate statistics speak for themselves

Our model combines the freedom to be a business owner with the support and ongoing investment of a trusted business. The result is success:
