The Personal Travel Agents, part of The Midcounties Co-operative, offers all the benefits of working with a large, respected business, but with a family feel.
For experienced travel agents considering starting their own business, independent agents looking to remove the cost of a high-street shop, or for those already operating from home and exploring alternative partnerships, we have a unique opportunity to become part of a well-known brand that provides you and your customers peace of mind, as well as the resources to help you build your business.
While you will be self-employed and working from the comfort of your own home, the support available from our expert team is one of our key priorities. We will work with you to set your own business and personal goals, but with the reassurance that our passionate and experienced team, with more than 200 years’ combined experience, will be by your side to help guide you and provide advice along the way.
We are not a ‘one size fits all’ business, and as part of the largest independent co-operative in the UK, we can offer an individual and flexible package that provides access to leading commercial terms with third-party tour operators and suppliers, access to exclusive product through our own tour operation and the flexibility for you to create tailor-made itineraries financially protected under our Atol arrangements.
We use market-leading technology and offer a range of resources including a personalised website and digital marketing solutions, so you can focus on selling holidays and delivering great service. We also have an administration and customer care team that has worked tirelessly over the past six months to help clients affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our induction programme will equip you with all the knowledge and tools you need to get you started and earning. Our Personal Travel Agents help shape our business and support each other remotely and in person at regional meetings, overseas conferences and VIP trips.
To be part of our award-winning business, we charge a modest joining and monthly maintenance fee and you will earn up to 75% commission. We also offer a bespoke financial protection scheme developed in consultation with our Personal Travel Agents.
