Travel franchise increases training trips overseas

The Travel Franchise has announced that every one of its franchisees will get the opportunity to experience one of its overseas trips.

Travel franchise increases training trips overseas

Every franchisee, which operates under TTF’s customer facing brand Not Just Travel, will be invited to attend its Millionaire’s Retreat (previously held online as a webinar during the pandemic).

Hosted by one or both co-founders, Paul Harrison and Steve Witt, the trips often include other experts or franchisees who are high achievers. The idea is that not only will travel consultants have the chance to experience a hotel, resort or destination offered by a key partner, but they will also benefit from seminars, mentoring and business development training while in resort.

Says Harrisson: “The trips are similar to what’s known as ‘fam’ trips or ‘educationals’ in the trade. However, they go one step further because we organise group seminars and one-to-ones with our business owners to help them take their business to the next level.”

NJT consultant Mark McCardie says the Millionaire’s Retreat was an integral part to the success of his and his wife’s travel consultancy, Rock My World, which has taken over £7m in bookings.

Says Mark: “The millionaires retreat was a game changer for our business, it laid out in simple terms the path to success and since we adopted that approach, we have never looked back!”

<p>Franchisees who are currently on the company’s most popular Elite package also get to experience an ‘Elite Experience’, another overseas educational with a similar format incorporating sessions that boost business skills and travel knowledge. </p>
<p></p>
<p>The most recent one in October involved taking 23 agents to Mexico to experience two luxury AMR Resorts in Cancun and Playa del Carmen.</p>
<p></p>
<p>In November, another Elite experience is set to take place in Mauritius with the focus on golf.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Next year, the company has announced it will also launch an International Mastery Retreat featuring expert coaching on how to become a master entrepreneur.</p>
<p></p>
<p>The company is also keen to ensure its agents make the most of niche travel sectors including ski with a winter sports trip scheduled in France in March.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Not Just Travel has also recently celebrated the launch of its new Cruise Division giving agents the chance to become experts on selling this lucrative travel product.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Agents commit to a 15-month Cruise Mastery programme working through a series of modules and seminars in their own time. However, one of the biggest perks is the opportunity to attend a Seminar at Sea, a week-long cruise with the chance to be trained by experts in the industry.</p>
<p></p>
<p>The company’s inaugural Seminar at Sea took place on Norwegian Cruise Lines’s Norwegian Prima with over 200 consultants and staff enjoying a cruise on the ship’s third ever sailing.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Onboard experts included BBC presenter Zara Janua leading a talk on social media and NJT’s new senior cruise business development manager, Duncan Croucher.</p>
<p></p>
<p>Says Harrison: “Every agent that signs up with The Travel Franchise gets the opportunity to travel. We believe that it’s essential that our consultants get expert training and support, but also experience some of the destinations and products they may sell to their customers whilst gaining inspiration from us and other franchisees.</p>
<p></p>
<p>“Quite simply if our consultants’ businesses grow, ours does too. It’s a win-win situation and if we can all travel the world whilst taking bookings and making money, it doesn’t get better than that.”</p>
