Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (April 18, 2017) – Aspiring entrepreneurs who want to turn their passion for travel into profits should consider using their tax refund to finance a new career as a home-based travel franchise owner with Dream Vacations A CruiseOne Company. According to the Internal Revenue Service, the average refund in Tax Year 2014 was $2,854. Experienced travel agents with a book of business can re-launch their career with Dream Vacations for as little as $495, and those with no prior travel agent experience can start a new journey and open a travel agency franchise for *zero down and zero interest for a limited time.

“More and more people are following their passion when changing careers, and opening a travel agency is the perfect career move for those who are passionate about travel,” said Tim Courtney, CFE, vice president of Franchise Development for Dream Vacations. “Re-investing a tax refund in a business opportunity is a lucrative way for entrepreneurs to simultaneously create a better work/life balance, earn more income and experience additional growth on their returns.”

As part of a special promotion celebrating Dream Vacations’ anniversary and CruiseOne’s 25th, the leading home-based vacation franchise is making it possible for entrepreneurs to open a travel agency and have unlimited access to training for zero down and zero interest for the first two years of business ownership. To sweeten the deal, new franchise owners will also receive one free year of waived administrative fees valued at $1,350.

“We understand that starting a new career with a travel franchise business is an investment of time and money,” added Courtney. “This promotion is our way of removing some barriers to entry that new franchise owners face without compromising our integrity, plus they can use their tax refund to ramp up their new business’s operating costs.”
