Military Incentives

Best Franchise for Veterans, Active Military Families & First Responders

Whether you are active military, a veteran or a military spouse, or a first responder, Cruise Planners offers a flexible, home-based business that lets you work on your own schedule from anywhere in the world.


As a member of the military or a military family, we understand your life doesn’t always stay in one place. As a Cruise Planners® travel franchise owner, we give you the tools to work from anywhere in the world. That means as you move, your business can move with you. Plus, as your own boss, you can determine your hours and schedule. Whether you work part-time or full time, at night or on the weekends, it’s entirely up to you. With Cruise Planners, you can start your own travel agency and have the flexibility to manage your business in a way that fits your lifestyle.


In the military, support from those around you is critical to achieving your objectives. We believe it is no different as a franchise owner. While some franchise companies might leave you high and dry when it comes to supporting your business, at Cruise Planners, supporting you is our only mission. We provide comprehensive training, dedicated business development coaches, award-winning technology and comprehensive marketing programs to help you establish and grow your business.

Military/First Responder Incentive Program

We are forever grateful for the sacrifices military members and their families make to help protect our freedoms.  Cruise Planners is already one of the most affordable, low-cost franchises but we are truly appreciative of our first responders for their dedication to helping people and communities.
