Gain Some Clarity

Frequently Asked Questions

Looking for some clarification? The answers you are looking for are more than likely below.

What are the hours?

You work for yourself and set your own hours however we recommend a minimum of 40 hours per week (based on an owner/operator model) if you hope to avail of our incentives which are based on minimum annual sales of USD$750,000. The more available you are to your guests the more opportunities to make sales.

Can I keep my current job?

The short answer is yes, as long as there is no conflict of interest. However, as per the number of hours you put in, the more you put into your new opportunity with Sheenco Travel the more you will get out of it.

Do I need a background in travel?

Not at all! Some of our most successful luxury travel specialists have come from entirely different industries so if you are looking for a new career path you may have found it!

Do I need sales skills?

While a background in sales is certainly of benefit, the truth is, we all sell ourselves every day! Your business development manager will work with you to develop those skills and we can also recommend sales specific training programs if that is of interest to you.

I’m a stay at home Mum/Dad – can I do this too?

Absolutely! We would recommend you organize your schedule so you have some child free hours to focus on this opportunity though.

I’m retired. Can I do this part time to fund my own travel?

Of course! We recognize that every franchisee has individual needs so we will work with you to help you set your own goals whatever those may be.

I’ve never been to Ireland or the UK but would love to go?

Now you can make it happen. We provide full product training across all countries and you will experience an annual familiarization trip to experience our luxury destinations for yourself.

How will I find people to sell trips to?

We recommend starting with your current network both online and in the real world. Your business development manager will also work with you to assist you with setting up opportunities such as parties and events to help you make the connections you need. We also offer an option to purchase leads generated on the Sheenco Travel website via paid marketing. Five leads per week are included in your marketing fee.

Will I be lonely?

We have online chat groups and regular meetings via zoom. You will also have regular one to ones with your business development manager so while you will be working from home you will have plenty of people to contact whenever you feel the need. You’ll also be getting out and meeting your clients in person so you will have plenty of interaction both online and face to face.

How much will I earn?

This of course is the $64,000 question – and no that is not the answer!!! Like any business this is entirely down to you as the business owner and depends on your own drive and determination and of course your own goals. If you just want to make enough to supplement your income and make more money for travel we can help you achieve this. Likewise if you are hoping for a full time job that gives you complete independence and allows you to be your own boss and earn your own income we can help you with that too. Finally if you are an ambitious business owner who wants a scalable business with a team of employees to help you achieve your goals, that will work too.

How and when will I be paid?

Unlike many host agencies you can start earning straight away. We will pay 50% of your commission when your guest books and the remainder after the guest has traveled.

How much will it cost?

Your total investment will be between USD$35,000 and USD$50,000 which includes a USD$20,000 Franchise Fee. A 50% discount on the Franchise Fee is available to our first five Franchisees.

What's the commission structure?

We pay 40% commission on the margin which is the gross sales less the cost of sales. This equates to approximately 14% of gross sales depending on the margin which varies as all our trips are completely customized and unique.

Do you offer a payment plan for the franchise fee?

This fee needs to be paid up front in order however we are happy to refer you to our finance partners who can assist you with a loan for your start up capital.
