“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.”

Wagtail _ Testimonial
“I would highly recommend The Holiday Franchise Company. I have run a franchised business previously in a different sector and this is an infinitely better experience. They are constantly enhancing their systems and improving the service that they offer and there is a real sense that they listen to the franchisees and are developing the business with the focus on the franchisees rather than on their own profits and convenience. There is an open atmosphere in the franchise as a whole, with people helping each other and communicating freely.”
By Mike Brown, Owner of Wagtail Travel
Holiday Warriors _ Testimonial
“Hi All … but specifically Luke and Jordan Just to say a big thank you! I was so happy to see Holiday Warriors appear on page 2 and 3 on google and not paid advertising. I have also converted two bookings from my google adverts from only 222 clicks and a small handful of enquiries these past few days, which has been tough as Easy jet and Jet2 Holidays but now will be clients for more holidays in the future. From being traumatised with Google adverts, I now Love making them and am busy making Canada- Vietnam and Cambodia my targets Thanks so much for your support!”

“Having conducted considerable research into the travel franchise landscape I chose to work with The Holiday Franchise Company for several reasons. Firstly, I was incredibly impressed with their approach. Luke was consultative, informative, and transparent from the off. He took the time to answer my questions, was always happy to jump on a call and was honest about both the huge benefits of a franchise arrangement, as well as being clear about the not so glamourous side! The franchise model felt far more dynamic and aligned perfectly with how I envisaged my business developing and the flexibility of their training and support gave the impression of a more personal service rather than the “one size fits all, an approach that was evident elsewhere. I was keen to build a business that wasn’t just reliant on my network, so creating my own brand, having the option to build my own website and market my business successfully to a wider audience in any which way I chose, was vital for me.”

“After working in the travel industry for 10 years (mainly within sales) and following franchise trends for some time, I picked The Holiday Franchise Company mostly due to the openness and directness when discussing the options and what they do. They have a clear goal on what they stand for and offer, and happy to explain the difference between them and the multiple competitors in the market. The key defining factor for me is their model is based around me building a business and a brand that belongs to me, with HQ offering the background support. Many people in the industry have questioned why didn’t I sign up with a consortium rather than a franchise due to my background in travel, with my response being from day one I have had support and training in areas such as marketing as well as access to Hays Commercial team which takes off a huge amount of pressure for contracting and negotiating rates, as well as payment of suppliers. In summary, I believe that by joining the Holiday Franchise Company, Your Limitless Travel stands a higher chance of success due to the reasons mentioned above.”

Edston _ Testimonial
“To The Epic Holiday Franchise Team, I can’t thank each and every one of you enough for going above and beyond to support my business at a time of difficulty due to last-minute government advice changing in terms of travel. I know you all have your own families to care for but you all rallied around me, after hours, provided me with swift and amazing advice and you still managed to inject humour to keep my spirits going. I knew when I signed up to the franchise, after a lot of research, you were the right company for me for a lot of reasons, and after this evening, you have blown me away! You truly are THE BEST franchise out there. Thank you for going beyond my wildest expectations.”
By Sarah Edwards, Owner of Edston Luxury Travel
Holidays Deluxe _ Testimonial
“The support we receive is excellent, they are always just a phone call away with the necessary advice. This is very reassuring as in the early days there are questions that may require a quick response. “

“The Journey Success Portal looks really good, it’s a lot of work and I think it’s brilliant that you’ve brought all of the stuff that we had available together.”

“Starting a travel business during a pandemic might seem silly to some, especially with the world shutting down its travel corridors, but starting our own agency is something we have dreamed of doing long before COVID cropped up. A rare positive to this pandemic is that working from home has allowed us the extra time we would usually spend commuting into and out of London to focus on the business. We have dedicated all of our time outside of our 9-5 jobs to this business but our passion for travel has certainly made it an enjoyable experience, and knowing the hard work you put in will bear fruit later on, is a great motivator”
By Harry Shirt, Owner of Travelstylers
Cochoa _ Testimonial
“Never looked back, my only regret was that I didn’t take the leap sooner! We did a lot of research into finding the right fit for us. With very busy lives, busy home life especially as we have 2 very young daughters and 2 dogs we needed to find the right franchise for us to allow us flexibility in how we work and to manage the business out way. From the moment we met with Charles, Jo and Luke at The Holiday Franchise show in London we knew we had found the company right for us to partner with that would give us the ability to venture out on our own, but not feel on our own as the support, guidance and training that we were promised and have received since we went for it back in April 2020 has been phenomenal and it is extensive whereby there are so many opportunities to continue to grow as a business but also as a Founder and Director. Cannot recommend enough.”
By Suzie, Owner of Cochoa Travel
