The Travel Franchise leads from the front of UK travel franchising. For 20 years we’ve been giving people like you the tools to build your business and become your own boss from anywhere in the world.

How does it work?

  • Enjoy excellent terms with 450+ travel suppliers
  • Find unlimited travel options for your customers
  • Get insider deals, packages & prices the public never see
  • Choose from endless ABTA and ATOL protected holidays

That’s just a handful of reasons we’ve been named UK Homeworking Agency of the Year six times and Best Travel Franchise in the UK by Elite Business Awards. It’s also why our founders were just recognised in the British Business Excellent Awards.

The Travel Franchise offers you a real chance to follow your passion and set yourself free from the 9-5.

We’ll also give you:

  • A personal website and custom-made software & IT
  • Around £3million in daily travel-buying power
  • 40 years of goodwill as part of the Hays Travel group
  • Ongoing mentorship from your Partnership Manager

You can build a travel business around yourself and your family, enjoying incentives and familiarisation trips and then sending friends on those same escapes – all with the shoreline just in view just beyond your toes.

And there’s real money to be made


Our most successful franchisees aren’t rare cases: they’re turning over £100k in eight weeks, £1m in three months, £76k in one booking, £340k in a year - the Success Stories are just a click away. And you’ll love our industry-leading commission: up-to 85% of your sales are yours to keep.

Our mentors and founders are with you for the whole of your franchise journey. They’re regularly on-hand at our 5-Star trips and events, investing time and capital into the business they love - including a headline-making £1m from January to June this year.

You might even meet our brand ambassador, former Olympian Daley Thomson CBE!

With that kind of support, many of our agents earn way more than they expected. Some – like Becky, Ross, Maureen, Ben, Suzy and many more - even winning their franchise fee back with our unique Money-Back Challenge.

Ready to follow your dream?


Despite the exclusive treatment, our doors are wide open to newcomers: almost none of our members have a background in this business, just a passion for travel.

All this gives our franchisees the right to be confident: the trips you sell to your clients are more than just dreams come true, they’re part of a real-life partnership that cares about all the journeys we’re on.

Love is in the Air for The Travel Franchise in Colorado

The Travel Franchise Image

Emily Maycock recently took her love of travel to a whole new level when she said 'yes' to her partner of 19 years during The Travel Franchise's latest training trip abroad.

Emily, from Derbyshire, was enjoying the ski slopes of Aspen along with 20 other franchisees and staff, when her partner Martin Good decided to pop the question at the top of a mountain.

Martin Good explains: “As soon as Emily told me that we were going on an incredible trip to Aspen I decided there and then that I was going to propose to her. We had a group photo with a few of the other consultants, who are now good friends, and I decided that was the right time. I shuffled along on my snowboard, got down on one knee, popped the question and Emily burst into tears and said ‘yes’.”

Emily, who says she was totally unaware as to her partner’s plans and cried and shook as she travelled back down the mountain following the proposal, added: “Aspen will always remain in our hearts as a very special place. We plan to return with our son and friends and family.”

Emily joined The Travel Franchise in December 2021 after a lot of soul searching, as she previously worked in her family business but was desperate for more freedom and flexibility.

She explains: “I had been in a family business for about 20 years, but it just wasn’t what I wanted to do any more. When I came across The Travel Franchise online I decided that it was definitely the route I wanted to go down. I used to get up at 4am, but now I’m around more and I can even go to school events during the day.

“It is also great being part of a wider team and having the support and guidance of the franchise behind you. It’s just one big family, really. Meeting up with all the other franchisees on the trips away is amazing. Two of the people I trained with are really close friends now and we speak most days.”

Jenny Farenden, Head of Franchise Marketing at The Travel Franchise, comments: “As a franchise we often head away together as small groups, it might be to learn about new places, or to play golf in fabulous surroundings, there’s always something new to do and somewhere new to explore. It is a way of saying thank to all our franchisees, but also a chance to learn, brainstorm and build team spirit. Obviously, our latest trip to Colorado was memorable for more than just the skiing! Everyone couldn’t believe it when Martin proposed, we are all so happy for them both.”

The Travel Franchise, which is one of the UK’s fastest growing travel agency businesses, enables people to operate their own travel agent business from home without the risk of going it alone. Unlike many of its competitors, franchisees do not need any travel agent experience or qualifications to join. Franchise packages range between just £2,995+VAT to £49,995+VAT.
