Cultivating a new breed of Explorers
At Explorer Travel we exist to help people like you start up and run your own thriving online
travel business from the comfort of your home.
 We opened our doors in 2005 as the very first UK based travel franchise, and have since grown to support the success of over 300

travel agency websites by providing financial backing, training and marketing to aspiring franchisees.


You can often find us working on:

Checking out the latest hotspots to wine and dine

Administering bookings

Going for a run

Coordinating digital marketing campaigns

On a plane to our next holiday destination

Running training courses

We believe in passionate people.

We’re passionate and committed about what we do, so we like to surround ourselves with like-minded people. Travel is one of the most satisfying industries to work in, and when you love what you do it makes it all the more rewarding.

We believe talent comes from anywhere.

We connect, foster relationships and train our community of Explorers regardless of their professional background.

We believe you can blend work and life.

We’re not tied to the normal 9-5 job. Sometimes life gets in the way of it, but our commitment never strays. And that’s the way we like it.

Our office space is unique
Where we work is different for all of us.
Whether it’s sitting in our PJs at home, relaxing on a beach, enjoying an office with a view,
or exploring the world as we Explorers do, we are not confined by our workspace.
And the same applies to our franchisees too.
