The Travel Agency Brighton Mum leads the way in a New Revolution of Luxury Home Based Travel Agents!
Sophie, 31 is Brighton-based and a mum to 3 year old Reggie and 18 month old Frankie. Having initially come across the travel business whilst looking to book a trip away for her husband’s birthday, she is now well on her way to becoming a leader in the UK’s fastest growing home-based Travel Agency. Aware of the immense difficulties that mums today encounter when finding work that fits around family commitments and inspired by Sophie’s journey, Absolute Magazine chats with this busy mumpreneur to learn about the secrets to her success story. Here is Sophie’s story, in her own words.
“I contacted a friend online that had recently started their online travel business and upon receiving a quote, I was also offered to take a look at the business to see how I could travel more for less, whilst also earning an income from my own travel.
Being a busy mum of 2 and owner of 360 Hair Clinic, I wasn’t intentionally looking to start another business but when I saw this new and exciting opportunity, I just knew that I couldn’t let it pass me by.
I started my first business at 19 and I have a diverse background ranging from Events, Beauty Therapy and, for the last 7 years, Hair Loss. Despite the online travel business being a complete polar opposite to my other full time business, I could see how this opportunity could fit within the little time that I have, and also have the potential to grow in to an empire!
There are many ways of earning in the travel business. First and foremost, if you are booking any travel at all, then you are doing this anyway! Every hotel, flight, transfer, excursion that you book online has commission built in to the price. So, if you are the travel agent, then you earn the commission.
Secondly, as an independent travel advisor you can book travel for you friends, family and associates. Looking to find them a great deal, whilst also earning the commission with each booking – everyone wins!
In addition to this there is an opportunity to expand your business into your own franchise, building a residual income. With it being well documented that the most successful business owners tend to have multiple income streams, this was the area that sparked my attention!
I am really enjoying the mentoring side to the business. I have a goal to help a minimum of 300 people to start their own travel business and create an exciting career and future for themselves!
It can be a hobby. It can be a career.
It can be anything you want it to be.
There are no quotas you have to meet or classes to attend. You learn about the travel industry online, interact with other advisors and uncover new places you can journey to.

This reputable company has worked hard to form great relationships with every major supplier in the industry, allowing its agents’ access to the world’s best resorts, hotels, cruise lines, car rental and tour operators, gaining ABTA membership and booking through suppliers with ATOL protection.
To date the company has over 40,000 Home based advisors in the USA and just over 6,000 in the UK.
It has never been a more exciting time to join the business due to the timing and positioning of the company. With over 66 million people in the UK, the market is still almost untouched which makes this a once in a lifetime opportunity!
