WHY CHOOSE US?
One of life's all-important questions...
Why us? There aren't many travel franchises that offers as much as we do and enjoys the process of becoming your new travel family more. We value long term relationships and that's why we have members who have worked with us for over two decades. Joining us as an independent travel agent means unrivalled earning potential, support, training, knowledge and experience. If you want a business opportunity that will offer you access to training and development, an unequaled network of industry links and great returns, then The Global Travel Group is just what you're looking for.
With over 50 million potential customers and a global spend of over $17 trillion, the overseas travel market is the biggest legal industry in the world. Doesn't it make sense to start a business in an industry with more customers than any other? Not only that, with so much being spent, it means there are fantastic profits to be made.
One sign that experiences are trumping things, is the rise in holiday travel. Official tourism figures show that travel spending is increasing in most areas year on year. Couple this with the fact that over 15% of a person’s income is spent on leisure activities every week, you are entering a franchise which has enormous 'recession' proof income. Like music to our ears!
Recent statistics show...
- UK residents made 65.7 million visits abroad
- They spent £3.5 billion (9.8%) more during these visits
- The number of nights spent abroad also increased by 10.7%
- Visits to North America, Europe and “Other Countries” grew in 2016, up 6.4%, 10.0% and 7.3% respectively.
- Spain continued to be the top destination for UK residents visiting abroad, accounting for 13.0 million visits, a 6.1% increase from the previous year, and accounting for 19.8% of the total number of visits abroad.
THE IDEA WAS SIMPLE – TO BREAK THROUGH EXPENSIVE BARRIERS AND ALLOW NON-TRAVEL PROFESSIONALS ACCESS INTO THE DYNAMIC AND LUCRATIVE TRAVEL INDUSTRY.
Since then the Global family has grown in strength, winning numerous accolades along the way, and is now one of the largest independent UK travel chains out there. Our Partners enjoy fantastic commercial terms with leading suppliers, in-house technology and the all important ATOL bonding, which allows our members to dynamically package and tailor holidays to their client’s needs.
“The Global Travel Group has been established for over twenty years inspiring people to run their own successful business within the dynamic world of travel. Whether you are industry trained or completely new, we know we have the perfect business for you.”
Now doesn’t that just sound like everything your travel business needs all in the one place? We think so.

Our Group ATOL Licence is our most prized possession.
It allows our travel agents to protect their clients holiday in line with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), and enables them to package holidays as fully bonded and protected products. Oh and the best part? It gives them the opportunity to select their preferred price and margins. We are one of the only groups out there that offers this to their travel agents as a part of the whole deal, and that is something that we are very proud of.
It gives you complete freedom.
As an ATOL bonded travel agent, you can offer your clients traditional holidays or bespoke packages that are tailored to their every whim. This personal, yet fully-protected service will give your customers the peace of mind they really need when booking a holiday.
