Next Steps In Your Franchising Journey

Expedia Cruises’ 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. Once you’ve filled out the form at the bottom of the page, there are four phases to complete in our process:

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, expectations, and whether Expedia Cruises is the right franchise to help you achieve them. During this phase, you’ll also review our virtual brochure and view the introductory webinar for a comprehensive overview of the franchise 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 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 one-on-one phone call with our President. You’ll then be invited to Expedia Cruises’ Discovery Day where 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 owner and sign an agreement to join Expedia Cruises, 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.
