Franchise Spotlight: Travel

With people keen to visit new places following the 2020 health pandemic restrictions, the travel industry looks set for a boost.

Canada is a beautiful country, sporting many national parks, cities bursting with culture and sites of historical interest. Whether people are visiting Canada for the first time, or residents are holidaying within Canada, the travel industry has much to offer.  

The total tourism expenditure in Canada reached close to CA$100billion in 2019 and had risen steadily for the previous decade (Statista). The travel industry took a global hit during the 2020 health pandemic, with social distancing rules and restrictions on travel, including national lockdowns.

With people being unable to travel, visiting new places and going on holiday was on many people’s activity wish-list post-lockdown, which is why becoming a travel franchisee is an interesting option to explore. With many businesses having to close their doors during the health pandemic, there is a space in the market for new franchisees looking to expand established branches and provide the much-needed escape for post-pandemic consumers.

Marlin Travel (Transat Distribution Canada) is one of the leading travel agencies in Canada with an established network of franchisees. They offer consumer holiday packages - everything from flights, accommodation, tour information and insurance.

Travel Industry Analysis

For franchisees interested in the travel industry, having the support of an established brand has never been more useful than following the uncertainty the sector experienced during 2020. The proven business model of a successful umbrella company, as well as the ongoing training and support, will be invaluable in what has always proven to be a competitive and fast-paced industry.

With many travel agencies managing their business from home, this can be an appealing lifestyle choice for franchisees. Although experience in the industry isn’t necessarily important, a passion for travelling and experience travelling yourself will certainly be important. This is an industry where customer satisfaction is extremely important, for image, as well as to encourage return customers. Excellent communication, organisation and a passion for delivering excellent customer experiences will serve franchisees well.
