Booming Industry
People love to cruise which is why 25.3 Million cruisers are expected to set sail in 2017. To meet the growing demand for this high value vacation, cruise lines continue to invest billions, with 97 new ships planned to enter the market between now and 2026. Fueled by the baby boomer generation and an increasing appeal to younger travelers, cruising enjoys the highest satisfaction rate of any vacation and has an extremely high repeat rate. There’s never been a better time to capitalize on this growing industry with an Expedia franchise.GFranchise MarketingResourcesListings and DescriptionsFranchise OppRETAILMarch 2016PRIN_35404_Royal Princess_500x400jpg

Jon Harvill Birmingham, Alabama -  Franchise Owner
“The idea of a big digital company also doing brick-and-mortar locations to appeal to every segment of the market was attractive to me and I felt that it was very forward-looking. Expedia is a household name that has instant credibility and instant familiarity with our customers. That is a big differentiator from most of our competitors who don’t have a big brand for people to connect with.”Chris Meyer Orange County, California - Franchise Owner
