New Not Just Travel agents ‘taking bookings faster then ever’

New agents joining homeworking group Not Just Travel are taking bookings faster and sooner after training than ever before.

Eunice Quigley completed five-day virtual training at the end of June and then proceeded to take her first booking, a £6,000, 11-day holiday for a family to Turkey on the same day.

HGV driver Mohsin Salejee made four bookings worth almost £11,000 since he finished training as a agent last Friday. 

Another two consultants from the latest set of training have made bookings within hours of completing the course.

Mother of three Alison Hunter-Gray, from the Shetland Isles, completed training at the end of last month and has since made five bookings worth £26,000.

Extra training dates in September have been laid on to keep up with demand.

Quigley said: “I just started chatting to people and I encouraged them to send me an email or Whatsapp if they had any upcoming holidays they were looking to book. 

“I would research the area and give them some hotel and excursion ideas which made it more personal and this generated a lot of interest.

“Towards the end of my training I reached out and scheduled a call for the following day, resulting in my first booking. I’ve since had three other inquiries from the same person referring me to others.”

Steve Witt, co-founder of Not Just Travel and its recruitment arm The Travel Franchise, said: “The speed in which new agents are making sales show that the training we deliver is optimised to create confident, expert travel business owners who know how to find customers and provide them with high-value customer service.

“That single £6,000 transaction means Eunice is on course to earn her entire franchise fee back through our unique Money Back Challenge – effectively starting her business for free. 

“Eunice has only just been trained on our booking systems, learned about the travel industry, and how finding customers; match-making them to the best holiday so that they return again and again. It’s that winning confidence and expertise that sets our agents on soaring sales projections – right out the gates.”
