Co-Founder of The Travel Franchise & Not Just Travel.
Not Just Travel is a multi-award winning travel agency which was established in 2001.
The Travel Franchise was founded in 2010.
Along with my business partner, Steve Witt, we took a fledgeling of an idea to become what we believe is the fastest-growing travel business in the UK today.
Over 750 people (as at Jan 20) have invested in a franchise and have started their own entrepreneurial journey under our umbrella. We now have over 40 corporate staff, most of whom work out of our Headquarters in Bournemouth.
The journey has been amazing. Starting with not a penny to our name we created a concept and with hard work, sheer determination and a slice of luck created what you see today.
Co – Owner of UK’s fastest growing Travel Business – Not Just Travel | The Travel Franchise
Multi award winning
UK Homeworking Agency of the Year 2015-2019
Nominated as Top 50 upcoming “one to watch” entrepreneur by Lloyds/Daily Telegraph
750 franchisees across the UK
In 2015, we were awarded with the prestigious GM/T2 Home working Agency of the Year award and won it again in 2016, 17, 18 & 19 – which is a record. This is even more remarkable given 95%+ of our franchisees had zero previous experience. In 2020 for the first time we won the very prestigious TTG Media/Kuoni – Home working Agency of the Year!
Our sales have rocketed from a few thousand pounds a month to millions a week.
Each month we set new records in terms of sales and commission pay-outs. In January 2017, our sales were up 259% on January 2016 and likewise, our commission pay-out was up 356% over the same period.
We now have franchisees turning over Millions a year and many making a monthly 5-figure income. In addition, they too are being recognised by the travel industry and are winning many prestigious awards in their own right.
Cash-rich and debt-free the company has grown beyond recognition and is known for its innovation and entrepreneurial endeavour. Steve, myself and the company are regularly featured in the travel trade press as well as national media.
Via our innovative Travel Ambassador Programme, our travel opportunity has now been made affordable to the masses and to those who maybe cannot afford or cannot run a franchise.
Via our innovate Partners in Travel Programme we are now the official travel agency of Sainsbury’s, Liverpool Victoria, Astra Zenica, Royal British Legion and many other companies and organisations.
