Why Choose Global Travel Group?
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’re people at the end of it all and we love what we do. Plus, we use words like ‘consortium’ and that definitely counts for something.
Joining us as an independent travel agent means unrivaled 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!
