Our Franchise Owners Say it Best!

“After 28 years of working for a large organization, I decided I needed to break away and build my own empire. The travel industry had always appealed so I decided to invest some of my retirement windfall in a franchised business. I approached a large company selling franchises but was dismayed by the pushy sales techniques. “Sign up this week and we will give you this, that and the other”. It was so cheesy I did question the idea of whether buying a travel franchise was really for me. I then decided to give The Holiday Franchise Company a go. What a difference. From the 1st call, it felt that I was entering into a partnership that would offer the support I need as a new startup. I wasn’t wrong. Genuinely nice, professional people who know the industry inside out have given me immense support from day 1.”

“I have been nothing but impressed with The Holiday Franchise’s processes and support throughout. In the discussions before joining I had some family members who were sceptical about the offering and I voiced these concerns with Luke, who answered all of them honestly. It took 4 months from our initial call before joining at which I never felt rushed or pushed into it. Even after joining, I have not been hurried into launching. The Holiday Franchise Company understand people and want them to go at their own pace. I have loved the journey so far, the knowledge and support have been indispensable. It’s a nice feeling to not be on my own doing this, I feel I have a whole team of supporters at The Holiday Franchise Company cheering me on.”

“Chris is incredibly patient and thorough in all aspects of the training and makes the entire experience quite enjoyable! The amount of effort that goes into the training sessions from his end is apparent and impressive, especially on the marketing session where Chris comes forward with potential partnership avenues for marketing purposes. The practical elements of the various training sessions, from the sales competitor call practice to actually creating pages for the website training session were incredibly useful and helped me to digest and retain all the information, which can be overwhelming at times. I also find it handy to have various training manuals, and videos available for reference after each session as a safety blanket. Beyond training on the essentials, Chris was also so helpful with sharing specific destination knowledge that will be highly relevant to my business and is always happy to help with a smile on any issue, big or small. Thanks for being so patient with all my questions and for setting me up with the right information and tools to launch Tailored Retreats successfully.”
By Amisha Patel, Owner of Tailored Retreats

What Makes us Different?

There are a few travel franchise companies out there. This is a good sign as it shows how successful a travel franchise can be.

If you are seriously considering investing into a travel franchise, there are a number of factors to take into consideration.

The British Franchise Association

The Holiday Franchise Company made the early decision to become accredited by The British Franchise Association because they share our transparent and ethical views.

The British Franchise Association was formed in 1977 by leading franchisors and established a code of conduct for franchisors as well as ensuring this code is strictly enforced. It has been vital to the growth of franchising which provides amazing opportunities to people looking to invest with franchise brands.

What would my business look like?

With our model we maximise your earning potential, so unlike other travel franchise providers The Holiday Franchise Company, doesn’t touch your commission, you make 100% of the commission on every booking.

Our approach is to take a small percentage of the revenue, just 2%, we do this for two reasons which we are completely transparent on:

  • You earn more on every booking
  • It protects us. If you choose to sell holidays with no profit
