The bfa meets Sarah Edwards-Johnston, owner of Edston Luxuary Holidays

 I founded Edston Luxury Holidays in March 2020 to share my passion for seeing the world.  We have travelled extensively, so becoming a travel franchise owner is my opportunity to help others create their own unforgettable holidays.

Opening a travel agency during a global pandemic was not part of our busines plan! Our first year was a rollercoaster, but I remained positive and never lost faith that the world will reopen and when it does, our customers will be waiting. The support of the Holiday Franchise Company has been invaluable, they motivate us and help us evolve in this ever-changing world.

I haven’t always worked in travel. I have spent the past 17 years building a successful career as a social worker specialising in child protection, supporting some of the most vulnerable in society. It is challenging, but it has taught me so much.  I have a strong work ethic and I’m not afraid to put in the hours to do the best possible job, and protect the families I work with.  It has taught me to multi-task, and keep going to achieve the right solution.

I am a wife, and mother to two daughters aged 2 and 5.  Home schooling, working full-time in my social care role and starting a business during lockdown presented our family with many challenges! But we are coming through it and I’m excited for the future. I can’t wait to see our travel franchise grow.

Edston Luxury Holidays specialises in creating luxury, one-of-a-kind holidays. Instead of booking standard package holidays we help our customers to see and experience countries in a completely unique way.  To find out more or to make an enquiry, you can visit www.edstonluxuryholidays.com
