Passionate about franchising with GoCruise

Jane Chadwick
GoCruise Franchisee

I joined GoCruise as a franchisee in April 2006 and have never looked back. I had been made redundant some 18 months earlier and needed to find something that was right for me. I had always wanted my own cruise business but obtaining things such as an ABTA licence etc. was far too daunting a prospect. I looked at many ‘homeworking’ opportunities but none were right for me. None provided me the flexibility to run my business the way I wanted, to be able to work the hours I wanted to work, and to be able to be totally independent and not tied to promoting any given operator over another.

GoCruise offered all of these factors and more. I am happy knowing that my business is safe with the backing and support of Fred. Olsen Travel, with ABTA and ATOL protection, and likewise my clients feel at ease knowing that backing is in place.

Support and training is second to none and is adapted to individual needs. Ship visits are always in good supply allowing us to experience first hand and provide a better insight into what makes one ship different to the other.
I’m very fortunate to have worked in the cruise industry previously and I appreciate the fact that I am left to run my business very much they way I want to, but I know if ever I need help or support with any aspect of running my franchise the Franchise Manager and Head Office team are there to assist.

Motivation to work from home has never been an issue as I’m passionate about what I sell. Opportunities are there if you want to grab them with both hands. Who would have thought when I started my own franchise, that I would have picked up the award and title of ‘Cruise Sales Person of the Year’ at the UK Cruise Awards 2008 for P&O, Princess, Cunard and Ocean Village holidays and been nominated as ‘Agent of the Year Finalist’ at the TTG Travel Awards in 2010? Hard work it might have been, but it wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of Fred. Olsen Travel and GoCruise.
