Starting a travel business
Since we were founded in 2005, we’ve helped hundreds of start-up travel companies with all manner of issues. We’re proud to say that many of those companies are still working with us (though we probably can’t really call them start-ups anymore!)
Need help getting your new travel business off the ground? You’ve come to the right place
There’s so much to think about when starting a travel business – it can easily get overwhelming.
From writing a business plan to securing funding or building cash flow models to registering for VAT and setting up merchant processing services. Not to mention figuring out which regulatory licenses, bonds, insurances or trust accounts you might need.
The road to your own travel business.
When resources are constrained, prioritising tasks is paramount.
We’ll help you figure out the roadmap of what needs doing, and in what order.
Then we’ll join you on your journey, riding shotgun, and helping you pick off the issues as they arise.
The best bit is our support can be structured flexibly, so we’re there when you need us, but you only pay for what you use.
If you’re planning to start your own travel business, we’d love to help you get it off the ground.
What clients think of our strategy work
We’ve worked with a wide range of clients over the years, from household names to brand new start-ups.
Here are what some of them had to say about our strategic services.
"Knowing that the TTC team are finance experts who also have a deep understanding of the travel industry is the reason we have remained a client for so long. We are delighted with the day-to-day finance work and long-term strategic planning they have carried out for us."
"We appointed TTC to assist with the regulatory aspects of carving Travelopia out of the TUI Group. Martin and his team worked closely with the senior management team throughout the very complex transaction process, providing advice and guidance on all licensing and bonding matters. TTC's in-depth knowledge of the ATOL, ABTA and IATA requirements and their previous travel sector transaction experience was invaluable in helping us conclude a successful sale to KKR."
"The TTC team were fantastic to work with, and they understood the travel industry as well as the challenges we were facing. Martin and Sarah shared some insightful analysis that, as a CEO, helped me to have confidence in the modelling and the decision I was making."
