Do you remember the moment when you first dreamed about traveling for a living? Perhaps you were asked to show a new client around your home city and you planned an amazing schedule of super sightseeing? Or, perhaps you were tasked with organizing an itinerary of events for a weekend away, and had a light bulb moment when you realized, “Hey, I’m good at this!”

If that’s you, it’s possible that other people have also noticed your fondness for planning. Maybe you’re already the designated vacation strategist in your family, or maybe you’re wondering how to turn your side hustle into a business, so you can put those skills to use in a way that brings in a little extra income in a way that fits your lifestyle. Well, your time has come!

Combine Your Entrepreneurial Talent and Love of Travel

If you need inspiration, meet Dream Vacation’s very own Trapper Martin, recently featured in Entrepreneur’s Online Business Magazine. Martin realized his love of travel planning in high school when he was asked to organize his senior class trip. A few years later, he learned how to start a cruise travel agency from a Dream Vacations Franchisee he met on vacation, and it wasn’t long before he made the decision to set up his own Dream Vacations franchise alongside his full-time job.

Martin was so successful that he quit his job and ran his franchise full-time. The Dream Vacations franchise model is designed to offer you the ability to run your business with maximum flexibility, targeting clients that fit your strategy, so you’ll have loyal customers who’ll come back to you year after year to recommend, plan and book their perfect vacation.

Being a Dream Vacations Advisor

If you’re looking for a way to supplement your income while getting to do some travel of your own, then becoming Dream Vacations Advisor can be the ideal opportunity. You’re partnered with an established Dream Vacations Franchisee, who can show you how it’s done and provide all the support you need along the way. It doesn’t matter your previous experience, as all your training will be provided.

As part of your travel agency startup costs, you’ll also have access to your own booking system, a load of marketing and sales materials, so your business will be up and ready to go straight away. You can work from home (or on the road) whenever it suits you, and no minimum sales targets means you have the power to sell travel at your own pace. Plus, you’ll get a commission on every sale you make, so your potential for earnings is virtually unlimited!

Level up Your Business as a Dream Vacations Franchisee

If you want to grow your side hustle into a business that brings you even more rewards, you could take the next step like Martin did and set up your own franchise. Whether you want to follow in Martin’s footsteps and run your travel planning business full time, or if you want a flexible opportunity for extra income by becoming a Dream Vacations advisor – it’s entirely your choice!

Whichever you choose, as a new franchisee you’ll have plenty of support from both your dedicated Business Development Manager and our amazing Dream Vacations online community. You could even go on to mentor your own advisors, just like Martin, or simply provide advice to new franchisees as they come along, since you’ll know all about what they’re going through.
