Our stories

When I graduated from the Travel Counsellors Academy programme after 12 months, having booked an incredible £120k worth of sales in my first year, I felt like I could take on the world.

Claire Summers,
Aylesford, UK

Our technology is ground-breaking and always evolving and having such fantastic business development support is comforting.

Guy Johnson,
London, UK

I was so worried about finding customers ... but after becoming the first person from the Academy programme to hit a million in sales, I think it's safe to say I've overcome that fear! My only regret is not doing it sooner.

Mark Hallam,
Redditch, UK

I'd been with the police for 30 years before taking early retirement and joining Travel Counsellors.

Andy Gilhooly,
Edinburgh, UK

I can be far more reactive to my client's needs as a Travel Counsellor so they could not be happier with my service.

Sue Mole,
Epsom, UK

"I have all the tools to work with and could be earning a fortune if I was more pro-active so I'm getting some mailshots together to put through doors."

Linda Wilkinson,
Workington, UK

Because you enjoy freedom, reward and recognition

Of course, your customers come first. But doesn’t reward and recognition give you a warm glow?

You’ve built a relationship. You understand their needs. You deliver a great holiday... and then they tell you it was the best holiday they’ve ever had. Perfect, and reward in itself. But there’s more. As a Travel Counsellor your hard work delivering great holidays is financially satisfying as well. The average Travel Counsellor earns £24K a year. The top twenty manage more than £100K. And some take home more than £150K. There’s no limit to what you can earn. Your earning potential is uncapped.

The more you put in... the more you get out. You’re in control. You’ll cut the commute, have more time for family and more time to yourself. With administrative concerns taken care of by head office, and with the support of award winning technology, you can focus on what you do best – selling holidays.

And if you are interested in seeing how your daily commute is eating up your time and how big a hole it's putting in your pocket then visit www.cutthecommute.today.

Our stories

I loved the homely family feel I got from Travel Counsellors from the beginning; everyone was so friendly and genuine. I knew I wouldn't be a number, like I was with my previous High Street travel agency.

Clare Lockett,
Peterborough, UK

One of my first bookings was a wedding group to Antigua after attending a wedding fayre within 2 weeks of starting. They went on to make a £30,000 booking. It was an amazing feeling.

Maria Foxwell,
Bath, UK

"I'm earning more now than when I was working in the High Street, but it’s the fact that I feel more recognised than I have in the 20 years I've been in travel which means the most."

Joanne Kemp,
Redditch, UK

"The way I received instant messages and emails when I became Gold, from Travel Counsellors around the world, who I didn't even know, speaks volumes about who we are."

Kevin Hankin,
Hitchin, UK

"If you want to change your work life balance and join a company that really cares about you as a person, then Travel Counsellors is for you. The best financial protection in the business and the freedom to give the customer what they really want."

Maxine Staniland,

"Someone once said "Thanks for helping us to make memories”. I loved that because it's about people, not bookings."

Wendy Farrar, Travel Counsellor,
Market Harborough, UK

Because you care about making customers feel special

And our customers make us feel special as well.

And that really is at the very core and heart of what makes us different from the rest of the industry – our relationships with customers. It’s a tried and tested business model that’s a catalyst for both retention and referral.

We build relationships with all our customers – we get to know their likes, dislikes, passions and ambitions. And once we know these we build that tailor-made travel experience that ticks boxes they didn’t even know they had. Time and time again. And the proof of the pudding is in the repeat business. For Leisure Travel Counsellors, it stands at 70 per cent, and for Corporate, a staggering 90 per cent. They’re figures that illustrate the true value of relationships. We’ve always believed it’s the right way to sell travel, and our customers tell us it’s the best way to book travel.
