A new luxury franchise company will launch next month, targeting experienced travel homeworkers who have been forced to leave the industry because of the pandemic.
Travelosophers is an independent company aligned to Cyplon Holidays, and will be spearheaded by Stephanie Robins, who will work as Head of Sales Development for the franchise alongside her existing role as Cyplon Holidays Head of National Sales.
Ms Robins has recruited well-known industry name Nisha Bean as Business Development Manager.
She said the business, which is part of the Advantage Travel Group, will be ’boutique in nature, focusing on quality rather than quantity’.
It aims to target experienced individuals, particularly those who have been forced to leave the industry, and to offer them the opportunity to return with their own luxury travel franchise with no joining fee.
Ms Robins said: “The pandemic has been an incredibly tough period for so many good travel people and agencies. I am so passionate about the trade and so when an opportunity arose to help support some talented travel professionals who have lost their jobs it was just too good to refuse.
“I’m excited that I will be able to play a small part in rebuilding this magnificent industry.
“Both Nisha and I are bursting with excitement to get started in building a close-knit family of outstanding travel professionals, who can provide clients with unrivalled knowledge and exceptional service. If you think we can help, please do get in touch.”
The brand is based on the premise that ‘in order to make a holiday truly special, it requires a deeper understanding of the underlying motivations and the desires for that particular journey – in other words, a person’s travel philosophy’.
Ms Bean said: “I’m delighted to be joining such a forward thinking and innovative company and can’t wait to get started in my new role.
“It’s been tough to keep this news under wraps for the past few months but I’m incredibly excited to start showcasing our outstanding and unique offering to any interested travel professionals.”
In addition to no joining fee, Travelosophers is also offering low monthly costs and commissions of up to 75%.
