Travel and tourism contribute almost $6 trillion to the global economy. In the U.S. alone, the travel agency industry stood at $37.7 billion in 2022. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, 50% of travelers indicate they’re more likely to use a travel advisor. This is especially true of the 50+ age group, 67% of whom made travel plans in 2022. With a proven track record serving this lucrative but overlooked market segment, a World Travel for Singles franchise offers a distinct value proposition:
Unique Business Model
By offering targeted packages aimed at catering to older singles, World Travel for Singles is uniquely positioned to engage this large but underserved demographic within the travel industry.
With reasonable overhead and start-up costs in a high-demand industry, World Travel for Singles offers a fast potential ROI for a motivated owner/operator.
Expansive List of Cruises and Tours
World Travel for Singles creates individualized travel itineraries for its clients to many popular destinations, including the Panama Canal, Japan, Switzerland and the Glacier Express Train, Dubai, Australia & New Zealand, the Grand Danube River, Canada & New England Fall Foliage, and more.
Offering almost three decades of experience in the travel industry and a reputation for excellence, World Travel for Singles franchisees will benefit from joining an established and trusted brand.
Because of the operational simplicity of the World Travel for Singles model, franchisees will not be required to operate from a brick-and-mortar storefront. This allows for locational flexibility as well as relatively low overhead.
After numerous solo trips across the globe, founder Libby Shields identified the need for a travel network geared towards singles aged 50 and up. Traditionally, solo travelers have been discriminated against by the travel industry. Because one less passenger in a room onboard ship means fewer purchased drinks, souvenirs, excursions, etcetera, single travelers face double fares as cruise lines seek to make up “lost” revenue. To combat this discrimination, World Travel for Singles provides a roommate matching service based on sex, age, smoking preferences and other factors. Additionally, we work with other providers who don’t engage in punitive pricing practices.
World Travel for Singles f ills an underserved travel advisor services market space. Additionally, the business model is built on a high level of customer service that sets the brand apart from its competitors. With over twenty-nine years of industry experience and a proven history of success, Ms. Shields brings extensive knowledge and confidence to the franchise program.
World Travel for Singles is successful thanks to the dedication to customer service that defines the brand. That’s why the number one quality we’re looking for in a franchisee is a commitment to serving the client. If you’re a people person with a background in sales, travel planning, accounting, consulting, banking, or other professional services, a World Travel for Singles franchise might be the right f it for you.
