Hays Travel acquires homeworking company Explorer Travel


Hays Travel has announced the acquisition of homeworking franchise company Explorer Travel.

Hays Travel says is an ideal fit for its homeworking model.

Explorer's 70 franchisees have now joined the Hays Travel Group.

Explorer owner Steve Wood is leaving the travel industry to pursue other interests but wanted to see the business he created in good hands, so he Hays Travel.

Discussions began several weeks ago.

Hays Travel currently has more than 350 people in its home working division.

The Explorer franchise model provides an excellent stepping stone between the traditional homeworking model and an Independence Group Member.

Dame Irene Hays, owner of Hays Travel, said: "John and I always thought Explorer was a great business and I was delighted when Steve approached me once he decided to leave travel to do other things."

"We have had a very good first meeting with the franchisees and we're looking forward to helping them grow their businesses and to recruiting more people into our latest franchise model in due course."

"It's a very different approach and I am very excited about it filling a gap between our Premier Telesales Homeworking and Personal Travel Consultants and the Independence Group, opening up new opportunities for our existing colleagues"

According to Steve Wood, Hays 'offers the best place for Explorer's franchisees to help their businesses grow.'
