The business was created after recognising a need to welcome and support people into the industry who didn’t have experience, but had amazing skill sets and a passion for travel, so we created a unique franchise model, which allows us to utilise and build on franchisees own travel experiences.

As part of Hays Travel Independence Group (Hays IG) we have access to 500+ suppliers, so we can tailor our franchisees business to their preferred area of specialism, whether that be type of holiday or destination.

We are backed by multi award winning Holidaysplease, who started in 2003 on a £6K investment and now turnover in excess of £30m, and are currently ranked as the number one travel agent on trust pilot.

We are the first travel franchise to get accreditation by both The British Franchise Association and The Approved Franchise Association

We currently have a network of twenty-three franchisees across the country. This enables us to provide intensive one to one, training, support and development.


Our on-boarding training programme “Journey To Success” is a bespoke programme delivered one to one, over a number of months, at dates and times to suit your schedule.

This consists of:

  • Creating & maintaining your website
  • Google Ads
  • Sales Through Service/Local marketing
  • Customer Management System
  • Supplier networking

We are the first travel franchise to have their training accredited by The Institute of Travel & Tourism.

Franchisees have a Business Development Executive, who supports on all aspects of the business.
