Investing in Expedia Cruises™ will be the best business decision you ever make. That’s why we take the steps necessary to ensure that awarding the franchise, and entering that partnership together, will be mutually rewarding. Our franchise discovery process has three phases:
You’ll begin by having a high level conversation with your Franchise Advisor to discuss your business expectations and watch an introductory webinar to get a good overview of your franchise opportunity.
This is your chance to dig deeper into the prospect of franchise ownership. You’ll learn about the four pillars of our franchise operating system. Once you are ready to commit to a franchise, you will be asked to proceed with a confidential qualification form.
After reviewing our Franchise Disclosure Document, you will have a phone call with our President. You’ll then be invited to attend Expedia Cruises’ Discovery Day. During Discovery Day you’ll meet members of the Senior Leadership Team, as well as Subject Matter Experts from different areas of the business, and prepare to set sail on the business adventure of a lifetime!
