Uniglobe Travel USA

Description

The Next Generation Travel Agency

UNIGLOBE has over 30 years of experience in the franchise travel agency business. In that time we have been innovators. We have developed sophisticated and complete travel management services that fully cover every conceivable aspect of physical travel. What’s next? Combining “physical” travel services and “virtual” travel services in one agency business. “Virtual” travel is simply the technology that allows people to meet and collaborate without being “physically” present (audio/telephone, web and video conferencing products and systems).

The UNIGLOBE Corporate Agency Owner will be the ONLY SINGLE SOURCE that can satisfy a company’s need for this full spectrum service. Sales are focused on local, small to medium sized businesses offering a unique travel management package that is just what these businesses are looking for; an economical and managed approach to controlling their complete physical travel requirements as well as virtual alternatives…. Presence Management!

This business is NOT home based, NOT an MLM and goes way beyond a traditional retail travel agency. It is a true B2B sales operation focused on growth of business accounts (although vacation, leisure and cruise products can also be sold). Each account acquired creates opportunities for ongoing or residual revenue. There is no limit to how big the business can get. This B2B, white collar, sales business is supported by centralized fulfillment centers that rely on economies of scale to keep franchise operating costs at a minimum.

Training:

We will provide complete training and ongoing support. Starting with an initial 3 day session which is followed by another 3 day session sometime later in the first year. While some time is spent on basic sales skills and techniques, the major focus will be on product knowledge for all the Presence Services (both physical travel and virtual travel services) and the Sales Approach for this unique offer. Most of the interim and ongoing training sessions will be conducted on-line, with in-person sessions being conducted where and when sufficient trainees can be gathered.

The Franchisee will be fully supported by a cadre of experts. Whether it is a selling situation that is out of the ordinary or a very large deal, the right person with the right expertise is available.
