Its travel agents, which sell holidays under the customer facing Not Just Travel brand, experienced a booming January with company figures revealing 2023 sales up 65% year-on-year with profits increasing by over 80%. The figures indicate the company is over-indexing industry competitors by more than double.
In addition, Not Just Travel consultants are booking more customer holidays than ever before – an increase of 50% compared to the previous January.
Paul Harrison, co-founder of Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise says: “The number of bookings made by each consultant is our best measure of success. The fact that it is higher than ever before proves that they are expert, confident and well-trusted by customers. This is naturally reflected in our sales.”

December was also the company’s best month ever. Consultant Ben Casey was 724% up in December and, in January, he sold £324k-worth of holidays – a 30% increase on the same month in 2022.
“It’s no wonder we have seen increasing demand to join The Travel Franchise,” says Harrison. “As there was a three-month waiting list for training we have added another date – February 27 – which means that those new business owners can still attend our Millionaire mentorship retreat in Cyprus in March and learn how to skyrocket their business.”
Both Ben Casey and Paul Harrison said there was demand for high-ticket luxury or milestone holidays as people continue to invest more in dream trips post-Covid.
Casey says his average booking value for January 2023 is up 57% on January 2022, from £6,252 to £9,818.
Says Harrison: “Pre-pandemic, we used to book £10k+ holidays every few days, now they are as frequent as every other booking. Our increased sales and booking values show that people will sacrifice many other lifestyle items before they reconsider their holidays.”
Travel consultant Lloydie Gardiner, who bought a travel franchise when a road traffic accident forced him to give up his job, sold over £280,000-worth on holidays in January and is currently pricing up a big £200,000k wedding in the Maldives. Last year Lloydie sold over £1.3 million holidays and he expects a growth of at least 15 per cent this year.
