The Global Travel Group
Description of franchise system
The Global Travel Group was formed in 1992 to provide
people from various backgrounds and experience with the opportunity to start
their own travel agencies.
The idea was simple - to break through expensive barriers and allow non-travel professionals access into the dynamic and lucrative travel industry.
Since then The Global Travel Group has grown in strength, winning numerous accolades along the way, and is now the largest independent UK travel chain. All members enjoy fantastic commercial terms with leading suppliers, award winning in-house technology and the all important ATOL bonding, which allows our members to dynamically package and tailor holidays to their client’s needs.
More recently in early 2008, The Global Travel Group was acquired by a major global player in the Travel Market - Stella Travel Services UK.
Since this exciting change, general operations have not changed however the buying power has increased and our commercial terms have never been better.
The Group ATOL is just one part of the bonding and protection travel agents require and customers need. The Global Travel Group also fulfils another important requirement in the form of our "Customer Protection Guarantee Scheme".

When you join The Global Travel Group you become a

The Global Travel Group is different to other franchises as you do not take our name and you are not limited to a geographical area - you are quite simply your own business branded and grown in your own way. The Global Travel Group provides all the backup, support, licenses, training and experience to help you grow that business.
This is the ability to package your own holidays, setting your own prices and margins using the Group ATOL license.
