The adventure starts here

Partnering with a leading UK franchise is a no-brainer – you can work for yourself, shoot for financial freedom, and build a brand you really believe in.

But what you if you could see the world at the same time, work from anywhere and bring travel dreams to life for yourself and your family?

The Travel Franchise can help you do just that.

Knowledge is power – and success

That’s why we’ve worked hard to ensure our week-long training course is packed with the guidance and the grounding you need to run your business at the highest level.

We’ll help you become a true travel expert, complete with the booking systems, payment options, and PR and web support you need to sell incredible holidays.

You’ll also benefit from the goodwill that comes with parent company Hays Travel - that means millions of pounds in daily travel-purchase power, ABTA and ATOL-protected holidays to pick from, and great terms with 450+ key travel contacts.

As a real-world travel agent with a world of adventure at your fingertips, you’ll bring countless flights, stays, trips and escapes to your travel-hungry clients - including deals they’d never find themselves.

Our trophy cabinet is getting full…

We’ve been in business for 20 years and the recognition is mounting up on a monthly and weekly basis. Here’s a selection that makes us proud:
