This is a great question that seems to get a lot of attention, especially in the Summer months when people are going on so many vacations with friends and family. Many of the prospects that I speak with tell me that the reason they are interested in learning more about travel franchise ownership is because they are the “go-to” person anyway when friends and family start their travel plans…and they want to get paid for doing it! I agree! If you already know that you enjoy planning trips for people and have an entrepreneurial spirit, then this may be right in your wheelhouse!
The great part about owning a CruiseOne franchise is that you do not only sell cruises, but all types of travel! Approximately 79% of our sales are cruises, and 21% are land vacations including all-inclusive vacations.
When deciding if the CruiseOne Opportunity is a fit for you…think about these things:
- Do you have a passion for travel?
- Do you seek a business with a large untapped market?
- Are you social and feel comfortable talking with people?
- Are you the family travel planner?
- Are you self-motivated in your work?
- Do you want to control your future?
- Do you want the flexibility to create the work-life balance you deserve?
