Travel Homeworking Highlights

What an exceptional year for Holidaysplease. Here are just some of the Travel Homeworking highlights of 2017 shared by members of the Holidaysplease Homeworking Team….

Sonia A –

My highlight has to be my booking with £20k in commission, and of course hitting my £1million in sales for the year!

Kelly T –

For me starting out as a travel homeworker and being able to work from home as my children go through school, watch their sports days and school achievement assemblies without having to ask a boss for the time off. I have always loved working in the travel industry and to be selling holidays from my own home with no limit to my earnings is like living the dream.

Earning the extra income has allowed me to spoil my family at Christmas and hire a cleaner!

Gretchen K –

One of my main highlights was an Hawaiian trip for some local customers. He was a huge volcano fan and really wanted to see one up close. We started off with a £6k budget and I ended up booking them a trip of a lifetime for over £14k! This was their letter in our local magazine :-

As advertising managers for the Village Voice I thought I would let you know about the excellent experience we have recently had with one of your advertisers.

Gretchen from Holidaysplease.

We found Gretchen through Village Voice having virtually abandoned the idea  of having time to plan and book a windfall holiday between jobs ending and starting.
Gretchen’s unending patience and professionalism made the trip possible.
Having cross checked flight costs, Gretchen also created a less expensive holiday than we could have booked with the airlines direct.
A great result and two very happy Village Voice readers.
Thank you
Andy & Helen A

Paul S –

My highlight would have to be hitting my record £78k month while being on holiday and only working half the month! Dragging in the final £12k booking whilst relaxing in a huge pool villa by the sea!

Nichola L –

There are so many highlights this year! I think the one that stands out is a client who had arranged a total surprise wedding at the Rendezvous on her birthday after being together for 25 years.

We secretly arranged getting her friends, family and even the wedding dress out to St Lucia!

Amanda K-S –

I have a few highlights this year. Getting my Gold Award for sales having been silver twice in a row. I was really proud to finally get there, all the hard work paid off.

I had my best sales month ever in February booking over £100k.

I was lucky enough to go on two amazing FAM trips to Australia and Mauritius. And this years Conference in Portugal was a fantastic couple of days with great Suppliers and brilliant to catch up with old friends I now have after 5 years with Holidaysplease and make new ones.

Sarah Mc –

My biggest highlight was my FAM trip to the Maldives and Dubai with Pure Luxury, how could it not be!

Also my repeat customers, people who had previously booked once before that are re-booking. For me this is huge, it reinforces that they are happy with what I’m doing so will not only re-book but recommend me.

Andy E –

Homeworking with Holidaysplease is honestly the best decision I have ever made! I am over the moon with the amount of my customers booking and stunned by the amount of money I have been earning doubling my previous shop managers salary in one month and not even feeling the slightest bit stressed!

For team members old and new 2017 has seen many Travel Homeworking highlights and 2018 promises to be another exciting year.
