Expedia CruiseShipCenters Franchise

At Expedia CruiseShipCenters we are a retail travel agency franchise navigating spectacular vacation experiences. An industry leader, our network includes 190 independently owned franchises who support 4,000 Vacation Consultants across North America.

Our proven model allows Franchise Partners to own a retail travel agency that’s connected to their community – backed by the largest travel brand in the world. As part of a $50 Billion company, they’ll offer customers a trustworthy brand and the best value on a full range of travel products. Paired with a powerful local website, the retail storefront will drive walk-in sales and acts as an essential hub for all sales and team activities.
The main role of our Franchise Partners is to provide support and leadership to a large team of Independent Contractors who leverage our network marketing strategy to sell travel. Due to their complex nature, 70% of all cruises are booked through a travel agent so our agents are trained to provided expert advice and service, in addition to Expedia prices.
The Expedia CruiseShipCenters model is incredibly scalable and allows for continued growth over time since each store can support an unlimited number of outside agents selling travel from their home offices.

Owners daily activities

Our Franchise Partners come from a diverse range of backgrounds, but are often middle-aged professionals looking for a 2nd career that offers a great lifestyle. Of course, they all share a passion for travel!
Our most successful franchisees are proactive, outgoing leaders who want to leverage Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ system to sell travel, earn income and build equity in their business. Typical Franchise Partners are active full-time owners and managers who are business-minded, but also passionate team leaders.
The majority of our Franchise Partners’ time is spent recruiting, coaching and motivating a large team of Vacation Consultants who sell travel from the store, or thier home offices. The more successful the sales team is, the more successful the business is, so our support tools are very focused on helping our Franchise Partners become incredible sales leaders.
