Travel Homeworking : Picking the Best

As the Great British Summer comes to an end, the busy season for the travel industry tends to simmer down. Well, at least this is the case for most travel agencies – not so much for Holidaysplease. Our in-house marketing team make sure we’re always busy, with plenty of free, quality leads and new opportunities to make sales.

Most high-street travel agents have made peace with the fact they’ll have to spend most of their autumn months clearing out old paperwork and watching the clock until closing time, but not Holidaysplease homeworkers. We’re as busy now as we’ve been all year – just another great reason to join our team of travel experts!

Richard Dixon, one of the Holidaysplease founders, who has taken the company from idea to a multi-million-pound, award-winning business, shares some of his secrets to success: “It’s important to select the right people when selling holidays to high-spending customers. Recruit the wrong people and frankly any travel business looking to sell upmarket holidays will fail.”

At Holidaysplease, we only take on board a small percentage of those who apply to join our homeworking team of personal travel experts. People are often surprised by this stat as many Travel Homeworking companies favour employing by numbers rather than finding quality people.

We have always chosen QUALITY vs QUANTITY.

Experience, knowledge and personality are the 3 most important factors our homeworkers must have in order to join us. We recruit sensibly to make sure that our Travel Homeworkers have what it takes to sell successfully to upmarket customers. By doing this, we find that a higher percentage of people that come onboard the Holidaysplease Homeworking Team go on to build the successful Travel Homeworking business to which they aspire.

Although there are times when the number of enquiries being generated surpasses the capacity in our team, we know that in the long term our Homeworking Partnerships will be all the better for it.

If you consider yourself to be an experienced travel agent who is ready to step up your game and make money year round, then get in touch today and you could be part of our exclusive travel-homeworking team!

Travel Homeworking Think You Can

“Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right!”

In my view one of the best quotes ever for which we should always be grateful to American Industrialist Henry Ford for.

The audience at the recent TTG Top 50 Awards were reminded of the saying by Holiday Extras Partnership Development Manager, Lindsay Garvey-Jones who was presenting one of the awards.

Lindsay is a massively positive character who I’m sure thinks she can do pretty much anything she puts her mind to. I’d certainly back her to do exactly that anyway!

Lindsay definitely practices what she preaches.

Lots of people tell me that they have been thinking about Travel Homeworking for some time but have never taken things forward.

Whilst I would always advise prospective Travel Homeworkers to consider carefully whether Travel Homeworking really is right for them, and to investigate thoroughly the various opportunities in the market place, it does seem to me that if there is too much thinking going on, then it is likely to be a case of think you can’t rather than think you can!

And there is no point kidding yourself here!

Travel Homeworking is a tough old world. For every Homeworker there will be challenges. There will be days and weeks that will seriously test your belief and resolve.

The good news of course is that for those people that truly think they can be successful as a Travel Homeworker the rewards financially and personally can be huge.

This years TTG Top 50 Awards recognised Holidaysplease as one of the UK’s leading Online Travel Agents and one of the best Travel Homeworking companies in the country, accolades that we are very proud of.

The support that we give our team, the opportunities provided for them daily via the free leads we generate, and the tailor-made technology they have to grow and manage their Travel Homeworking business, all adds up to a strong proposition.

The key of course is whether you think you can, or think you can’t?
