[www.globaltravelgroup.com]: The Global Travel Group represents a low-cost franchise solution for more than 500 independent travel agents across the UK. Set up in 1993, the group uses its negotiating strength to give travel agents access to market-leading product and prices, allowing them to compete with the large travel chains. Franchisees also benefit from Global’s innovative booking and office technology, enhanced commission and marketing support. Agencies include homeworkers, traditional stores, online retailers and call centres.
Larger and more established ABTA-bonded travel agencies can be part of the Global family via the Independent Options consortium. Members retain their independence but still benefit from Global’s strength in numbers and market-leading technology.
