TV broadcaster Eamonn Holmes OBE Joins Not Just Travel

One of the biggest names in breakfast TV joins one of the biggest names in travel homeworking, championing the value of booking through a personal travel consultant.

TV broadcaster Eamonn Holmes OBE has joined Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise and will be working closely with the company, championing the value of booking through a personal travel consultant and attending the company’s conferences and international events.

Co-founder Paul Harrison said: “Having Eamonn join us is a real coup. During Covid, Eamonn was a massive champion of the travel industry; now he’s the champion of Not Just Travel.”

Harrison continues: “This announcement promises an unparalleled collaboration for Not Just Travel. As one of Britain’s most beloved TV personalities, Eamonn is renowned for his captivating charisma and brings an infectious enthusiasm to the partnership, while our consultants offer unique expertise in crafting unforgettable travel experiences.”

Commenting on the announcement Eamonn Holmes OBE said: “What I love the most about Not Just Travel and The Travel Franchise is the passion everybody has - not just for travel, but for helping others and I really want to be a part of this.

“I’m excited to spread the word about the value and service personal travel agents provide.

“Working in news means that I often see or report on how the travel industry is disrupted. During the pandemic it was clear that those who had booked through travel agents had support and advice when they needed it most.  

“If I want something done, I get someone with expertise in that field to do it and travel is no different. I would never think of booking my holiday independently. I pick up the phone and talk to a travel consultant who I know and trust and who can add value and security.”

As the world’s longest-serving breakfast television anchor, having amassed over 26 years with GMTV and Sky News, Eamonn is perhaps best known for being a presenter of ITV’s This Morning, but he has extensive travel experience having presented BBC1’s Holiday programme and travelled extensively while filming How The Other Half Lives

Harrison said Eamonn’s travel experience would be a huge asset and that he would be a keynote motivational speaker at conferences and international retreats including Not Just Travel’s Seminar at Sea cruise taking place this month in conjunction with Princess Cruises. Eamonn will also present Not Just Travel’s The Travel Podcast with brand ambassador and TV presenter Hayley Sparkes.

“Eamonn will help us in many areas of our business calling upon his presenting skills and working with our network of travel consultants helping with their social media reach.”

Eamonn was particularly impressed by the fact that The Travel Franchise trains and supports people new to travel enabling hundreds of people to earn money doing something they love.

“I think it's fascinating that the majority of consultants have worked in other jobs and yet they've chosen to retrain and do something completely different, to start a new adventure in travel. I can’t wait to meet some of the agents onboard Sky Princess and at other events.”

He added: “I always say that if you do something you love, you will never work a day in your life. And there certainly seems to be great enthusiasm amongst the company’s consultants. Many people are obviously searching for their ideal profession, their ideal job and clearly many franchisees have found it. Travel is a magical thing.”
