How do I continue learning about opening a travel agency?
Expedia CruiseShipCenters’ streamlined franchise discovery process is designed to provide you with all the information you need to decide if our franchise opportunity is the right fit for you. There are four phases to complete in our process.
Here’s what happens next:
Step 1: Exploration Phase. During the initial conversation with your Franchise Advisor, you’ll set a time to have a longer call to discuss your business goals and expectations and whether Expedia CruiseShipCenters is the right franchise to help you achieve them. During this phase you’ll also review our virtual brochure and attend an introductory webinar to get a good overview of your franchisee opportunity.
Step 2: Education Phase. This is your chance to dig deeper into the prospect of franchise ownership. You will attend two webinar sessions that will showcase our systems and support. During the presentations you will be able to pose questions to our senior leadership team. At this point we’ll ask you to complete a detailed qualification form to continue moving forward to the next phase.
Step 3: Validation Phase. During this phase you’ll have a chance to review our Franchise Disclosure Document and will have a number of one-on-one phone calls with our President and other Franchise Partners. You’ll then be invited to the Expedia CruiseShipCenters corporate office to attend your Discovery Day. There you’ll meet members of our Senior Leadership Team and all the people who will support you with your new business.
Step 4: Getting Ready to Open. Once you’ve been approved to become a Franchise Partner and sign an agreement to join Expedia CruiseShipCenters, we will connect you with a start-up manager, schedule training, and start helping you find the ideal location for your business. We estimate that from the time you sign your franchise agreement, your store will be open within four to six months.
