The UK travel franchise that offers you your own business and a new way of life!


The travel industry has always been popular with customers and those who work in it. It’s a chance to explore the beautiful people and places in the world, as well as take a break from work and home.

This means there are many rewards and benefits to be found, but also a lot of competition. So it’s important that you choose an established, well-known company to work with if you want a business you can operate from the comfort of your home - a brand with a reputation respected by those in the know.

That’s what we at GoCruise & Travel offer you… and more!

Whether or not you have travel industry experience, we give you the training you need most.



Many people crave the opportunity to run their own business and have the freedom that comes from making your own decisions rather than taking orders. On the other hand, it means you’re on your own. You have no support, and when challenges arise, you can find yourself wishing you had someone with the experience and time to help you find the solution.

That’s where a franchise is worth considering.

You have a fully established company with a proven business model and recognised brand to help you, but at the same time, you are the boss of your particular branch. You are in control but have someone to turn to whenever you need it. Your success and their success are bound together!

What makes us different?

At GoCruise & Travel, each franchisee operates within their own exclusive UK territory. This is typically within your home region, but many franchisees operate in towns and cities outside their local area.

You can sell a wide range of holidays to clients. Due to the volume at which we sell, we can offer fantastic commercial rates for both cruise and land operators. This allows you greater financial earning opportunities.

“GoCruise & Travel has offered me a great way to build a business with excellent support in the hugely enjoyable environment of cruising and holidays. Like many other franchisees, I came with no travel background – but with a passion for travel and a desire to help others enjoy holidays. Critical to success and enjoyment of the business is the ongoing support across all parts of the business – including super help on marketing and working with cruise lines, a very knowledgeable (and gentle!) admin team, and full franchise management support.

The brand of GoCruise & Travel opens doors into cruise lines that continually amazes me, and being part of the Fred Olsen group provides huge financial reassurance to customers. I always feel good and confident when talking to my clients about holidays.

On top of running my own business, this has turned out to be a wonderful opportunity to visit or cruise on beautiful ships – and right now, so many people are bursting to get back onto the water and cruise.

I feel part of a wider family, always great to meet up and enjoy events together – and it’s fun!”
