Why A Travel Franchise Is An Amazing Business Opportunity

A travel agent that can provide exclusive benefits, great discounts, and completely packaged vacations is invaluable. Travel agents tend to have loyal life-long clients with whom they have built relationships over the years. There are also many perks of being a travel agent.


Cruise Planners is an affordable, low-cost franchise opportunity at $10,995 $9,995 (we're slashing our franchise fee!) with incentives for veterans/active military personnel, first responders, and current travel agents. You do not have to open a traditional brick-and-mortar travel agency location either.


There's nothing quite like setting your own schedule and working when you want to. You can dedicate as much time as you'd like by working full-time or you can supplement your income by working part-time.
