Expedia CruiseShipCenters is seeking veterans and first responders with the entrepreneurial spirit to open travel franchise locations in their communities. Veterans and first responders are a great fit for franchising since they have the skill set that is necessary to run and manage a streamlined and efficient business, and they have the drive to translate our tested business model into a successful business. Working as your own boss, you’ll follow our proven system and serve your local community providing spectacular vacation experiences.

In appreciation of your service and as a proud member of the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program, we are happy to extend to all veterans and first responders a 15% discount off of the initial franchise fee.*

Testimonials

Hear from some of our successful veteran and first responder Franchise Partners on their experience transitioning their skills into their new roles:

Joyce Mariner

“I have noticed some similarities to my position at the NYPD. Both are service oriented professions. As a detective, I learned the skills to interview and interrogate; at Expedia CruiseShipCenters I have learned to ask customers better and more thoughtful questions so we can provide the best all-around sales experience. As police officers, when we made an arrest we would joke around and say, “Book ’em!” At Expedia CruiseShipCenters, we sell travel experiences and say, “Let’s book it!” While there are some parallels in both careers, I’m happy to say that now when I “send people away,” it will be somewhere they want to go – on a spectacular vacation!”

“The military taught us discipline and commitment for the purpose of making a difference. Being a successful Franchise Partner with Expedia CruiseShipCenters requires the same skill set and passion for making a difference for travelers in our local community. Expedia CruiseShipCenters offers an exciting opportunity for anyone with military experience. Just like the military, success with Expedia CruiseShipCenters relies on effective planning and precision execution. As a Franchise Partner, you will be given all the tools and support you need to continuously grow your business and your sales team of Consultants.”

“After looking at several franchise opportunities, Expedia CruiseShipCenters was the best franchise that we could both do and “enjoy” our retirement from the military.”
