Expedia Cruises Franchise Information

Business Model

Expedia Cruises retail locations allow franchisees to build a team of independent Vacation Consultants who share their knowledge and work together to drive sales.

Training Programs

During your location build-out, you’ll simultaneously be learning the ins and outs of the travel industry and attending a week-long intensive training session, called Cruise Management Academy (CMA), at the Vancouver corporate office. During CMA you’ll take a deep dive into the entire Expedia Cruises system and connect with Subject Matter Experts who will answer any questions you may have.

In addition to CMA, Expedia Cruises has established a sales training program called The Navigators Approach. This step-by-step sales methodology was developed exclusively for Expedia Cruises and to help franchisees teach their Vacation Consultants how to sell travel, even if they don’t come from a sales background. With a suite of leadership tools and train-the-trainer workshops for franchisees, you will be able to deliver The Navigators Approach with confidence.
