Have you imagined pursuing your greatest passion, working with the most recognized name in travel and actually owning the business? Well now you can. With an Expedia Franchise, you can get in on the ground floor of a business opportunity with a proven track record of success.
100 Million people are interested in taking a cruise in the next 4 years. Fueled by the baby boomer generation and an increasing appeal to younger travelers, cruising enjoys the highest satisfaction rate of any vacation. To meet the growing demand for this high value vacation, cruise lines continue to invest billions, with 65 new ships planned to enter the market between 2015- 2020. There’s never been a better time to capitalize on this booming industry with an Expedia franchise.
Today’s cruisers are overwhelmed with information and options. With so many ships, staterooms and destinations to choose from, travelers are looking for expert, in-person advice from a trusted professional. That’s why 70% of cruises are booked through a travel agent (source CLIA)! Bookings made through travel agents also account for more than one-third of the $284 Billion travel market – and that number is growing. With hotels, flights and shore excursions required to complete the vacation experience, your earning potential as an Expedia CruiseShipCenters Franchise Partner is enormous.
With an Expedia franchise, you can own a retail travel agency connected to your community – backed by the largest travel brand in the world. As part of Expedia Inc., a $50 Billion company, you can offer your customers a trustworthy brand and the best choice and prices, in addition to the personal service and advice they expect from a locally owned and operated business. With the most recognized brand in travel on your door, you’ll attract new customers and build market share in your exclusive franchise territory.
For the last two decades, our sales have grown at an average rate of 20% each year, outstripping the industry 3 to 1. Now a market leader, our network includes nearly 200 independently owned franchises who support 4,000 Vacation Consultants across North America.
