With an Expedia franchise, you can get in on the ground floor of a business with a proven track record of success.
50 million North Americans are interested in taking a cruise in the next 3 years. Fueled by the baby boom 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 20 new ships planned to enter the market by 2017. 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. Bookings made through travel agents 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 a $39 billion company, you can offer your customers a trustworthy brand and the best choice and prices, in addition to the personal service and advice you can 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 more than 25 years, 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 more than 180 independently owned franchises who support 4,000+ Vacation Consultants across North America. Our continued success and outstanding franchisee support have earned us recognition as a top-ranked franchise year after year. By joining the Expedia CruiseShipCenters' family, you can leverage our track record of success while enjoying the true benefits of owning your own business.
You can achieve your wealth, equity and lifestyle goals with our scalable franchise model. A manageable initial investment enables you to support an unlimited number of commission-based independent contractors who will sell travel from your store or their home office. Our proven network marketing strategy will help you generate new leads and repeat sales to jump-start your business and create customers for life.

"I would absolutely spend another 23 years in this business. You don't have to retire to see the world. It's wonderful when you're on a cruise to look up your reports on CruiseDesk and see that your agents are selling for you. You're making a living while also enjoying all the fruits of being a part of Expedia CruiseShipCenters!"

"After researching several franchise companies, we chose Expedia CruiseShipCenters because of the people, the culture and the brand. Attending the week-long Cruise Management Academy training at head office confirmed that we made the right decision. The amount of support that the corporate team provides for us is amazing – the people, the processes and the technology are all in place for us to achieve everything we want to."

"As a mother of three young children, flexibility in my business was really important to me and the Expedia CruiseShipCenters franchise offered me the chance to celebrate my passion for travel in a fun career. Our center, which began with three Cruise Consultants, has now grown to support 38 agents and we are looking to expand into a larger retail area to accommodate even more growth."
- Scarlett Hiller
"Initially we used Expedia CruiseShipCenters as a benchmark for some other franchise options we were considering and the more we benchmarked, the more we liked ECSC. They have an excellent track record and reputation in leisure travel, top notch systems, incredible leadership and place an emphasis on improving quality of life for their franchise owners – we couldn't ask for much more."
