Expedia Cruise Ship CentersFor over 30 years, Expedia CruiseShipCenters has been providing travel agency franchise opportunities for people who want to navigate spectacular vacation experiences for travelers in their community. Expedia’s massive brand paired with our commitment to exceptional customer service has helped us grow into a leading seller of cruise travel in North America.
Our travel agency franchise is rapidly expanding, with over 300 locations currently open or under development. Our growth is driven by three overarching factors:
- Our proven business model is affordable to start and extremely scalable.
- Our focus on cruise vacations makes us a trusted resource among cruise customers who overwhelmingly
prefer to book with a travel agent.
- The cruise industry is growing rapidly.
The main role of an Expedia CruiseShipCenters travel agency franchise owner is to lead a large team of independent Vacation Consultants who help their customers navigate through the many options to pick the right cruise line and travel plan for their needs. Personal service is key. While many travelers book hotels and car rentals online, they rely on travel agents for help booking cruises. According to Cruise Lines International (CLIA), 70% of cruises are sold by travel agents and not via websites (2018 CLIA Annual Report).
