Four travel agency franchises have made it into the HSBC Elite Franchise Top 100 list for 2024.
Highest ranking was The Travel Franchise, owner of Not Just Travel, which came in 12th place, with judges saying ‘industry awards, record sales and pioneering initiatives’, make it ‘one to watch’ in 2024.
Hays Travel-owned franchise Explorer Travel came in 44th position, The Holiday Franchise Company was in 93rd place and GoCruise & Travel secured the last slot, coming in at 100.
Franchises are ranked by an independent panel of judges, who consider their size, sales, growth, ambitions and contributions to their franchisees.
Explorer Travel head Steven Reilly said he was ‘thrilled’ to have achieved 44th position in its first year of entering.
“We are continuing to develop and enhance our offering to both new and existing franchise partners,” he added.
Launched in 2018, the Holiday Franchise Company was praised for its ‘attitude and innovation’ by Brand Director of Elite Franchise Scott English.
Head of Franchise Joanne Aldridge said: “I’m so proud of our franchise community, we work as a team to continually assess how we can enhance our franchisee’s experience being partnered with us, and how we can grow for a stronger future.”
