I chose to join Travel Associates Franchise because the model best suited my business. Being part of the global Flight Centre Travel Group means I have the backing of a huge travel company buying power whilst still being able to operate my business locally.

The brand positioning stands out from our competitors and the availability of premium product means we have available lovely product to offer to our clients.

The business model delivers very good value for money, with generous distributions back to the franchisee.

Support of the Franchise Manager makes it easy to navigate through the challenges of technology, marketing and product support in this busy and competitive industry.

To be able to open our own business in the industry we love was a dream come true for my wife and I. We opened the first ever franchise store under the Flight Centre Travel Group on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in 2006.

The systems and support offered by Flight Centre Franchise have enabled us to grow from just the two of us when we started out to now employing over 30 people across 5 locations.

Last year we rebranded from Escape Travel to Travel Associates. We love the new branding in the premium end of leisure travel and will continue to grow our business with the help of Flight Centre Franchise.
