Hays Travel is the UK’s largest independent travel agency with a strong high street retail presence. However, over the last 20 years, we’ve grown and diversified with the extension of our business into homeworking travel consultants with a network of now more than 400 homeworker partners in our family.

We know how exciting the journey of starting a new business can be, and as a people-first business, we’re always ready to hear from & welcome dedicated and passionate people wanting to take their first steps.

We are committed to the training & support that we offer across our partner network – new & existing. From comprehensive training on our systems, through to providing expansive product knowledge & social media specialism support, we want our partners to combine their passion for travel and customer excellence to help create dream holidays, while earning at the same time.

Today, we offer a variety of options to suit your lifestyle – whether you’re an experience travel consultant or brand new to the industry & would like to leverage our Travel Academy.

There’s flexibility to work your own hours to suit your personal circumstances & commitments, as well as freedom to set your own goals without targets and have uncapped earning potential.

You’ll benefit from Hays Travel’s industry-leading commercial terms & conditions with a huge variety of suppliers from right across the Travel sector. Plus, with full ATOL & ABTA bonding, you & your customers will have complete peace of mind when booking that dream holiday with you.

Once we receive your signed consultancy agreement, we can have you up and running in four to six weeks.

What kind of support will I receive?

You are supported by travel industry professionals working in a number of head office departments. In addition to this you will have a dedicated homeworking support team as well a business development team who are on hand to answer queries and give you advice on how to market your business.

How much can I earn?

That is entirely up to you, the more you put in the more you get out. The earning potential is unlimited.
