If you decide to use our Travelosophers brand for your store, you will be given exclusive right to a specified mile radius around your store location

Do I have to use the Travelosophers brand?

Our recommendation is to utilise the powerful Travelosophers brand which will give you many advantages by association. The support that we provide is naturally geared towards promoting the Travelosophers brand and all our marketing and branding assets are related to our brand. However, it is possible for you to promote your own brand within our Travelosophers network but at a premium cost- you can read more about using your own brand here.

Commission is paid 8 weeks before departure date and the cut of date is the 15th of each month. The payment will go straight into your bank account.

I don’t have enough money to fully invest in a store – do you provide investment?

We will consider joint ventures. Please call us to discuss your requirements.

Our Roots

Whilst Travelosophers is a newly formed company, it does have deep roots in the travel industry. The business is aligned with the award-winning Cyplon Holidays, an industry stalwart, that has been trading since 1972. The Cyplon family spans over 3 generations and the partnership gives Travelosophers an immediate foothold in the marketplace as well as strong financial backing and investment.

Our Values

Our values are very much based on service excellence, care, reliability, expertise, knowledge and quality. Not just anyone can be a Travelosopher. You must have a real passion for travel, regardless of your professional experience, and you must demonstrate the desire and the hunger to succeed in the world of business. We encourage creativity and innovation too, and we will rely on our Travelsophers to push us too. As a Travelosopher you will enjoy the true meaning of the word partnership and we take great pleasure in supporting our Travelosphers every step of the way.

Passion for Travel

We love travel and all our head office staff are indeed travel people, but we also provide you with business support and business strategy – after all, this is your business. Our family approach means that our franchisees are much more than just business partners. We enjoy supporting and helping you grow both in business but also helping you in achieving a better work-life balance. Our approach, our philosophy, is always holistic and always tailored to an individual’s needs.

What commission would I earn?

We have 2 great options that you can choose from. The commission ranges from 60% to 75% depending on the option you choose. We do believe that there is an option for everyone.

What commissions do you offer?

Here at the Travelosophers we understand that everyone has their own philosophy and way of doing things. That’s why we don’t just offer one commission option to you – choose between our fixed commission package, where you know exactly what you are getting for the entire year, or perhaps try our tiered commission approach which allows you to potentially earn even more if you are successful. The choice is yours but in both instances, our packages are extremely competitive when compared with our competitors.

What costs are there to join your Franchise?

All our business options come with a FREE version. Please call us to discuss further.

What happens once I join?

Once you have signed the contract you will join our virtual training induction. After the training you will be ready to trade. You will get assigned a Business Development Manager to go through building your business plan and support you in starting your business.

What is a Travelosopher?

A Travelosopher is a critical thinker and clear communicator, they are a smart and knowledgeable analyser of the underlying motivations for travel and the associated desires; they use their skills to understand the language people use to describe the world, and their place within it, and to nurture and help them cultivate their own Travel Philosophies for each and every journey they take within the different areas of travel philosophy being distinguished by the questions that they ask. Once the Travelosophy is defined, they are able to guide their clients and bring their philosophies to life by creating indelible holiday memories.

What is the Elite Travelosophers Membership

If you are an existing travel professional, you will be invited to our Elite Travelosopher community with other fellow experienced travel professionals. This membership is for our most experienced Travelosophers and our top performers. You will benefit from extra commission and a choice of commission options to suit your needs. You will also be given priority for events and familiarisation trips plus other perks.

What support do I get?

You will have a dedicated Business Development Manager to help you every step of the way. They will be available when you need them and to help you think what steps you have to take to grow your business. But most importantly to be there for you for a chat or words of encouragement.  Full support of head office for systems, admin or booking enquires will also be provided.

What suppliers can we use?

We have a range of suppliers that you can use, from Jet2 Holidays to Kuoni, to suit everyone’s needs. If there is a supplier that you feel that we should have and don’t currently we will endeavour to create an account. We also have a contracting team that are able to source specific hotel properties and suppliers.

What systems to do you use?

Our travel booking system is a one stop shop for you to build your business around. It has an integrated CRM, quoting system, dynamic packaging capabilities and payment facilities and much more. It’s also cloud based so can be used anywhere in the world as long as you have internet.

What training dates are available?
