Align your travel business with a name your customers can trust. Expedia is ranked by the Travel Weekly Power List (2016) as the most powerful brand in travel. Not only will you benefit from Expedia’s $60 billion in buying power but you will be able to earn commission on Expedia.com non-cruise products such as hotels, tours, car rentals, vacation packages and more.
Expedia® CruiseShipCenters® enjoys tremendous buying power with every cruise line which means you’ll earn the highest commissions in the industry - up to 18% for cruise. With the ability to earn additional revenue selling Expedia.com non-cruise products, your earning potential can be as high as your aspirations.
Unlike many other travel agent models, you will have the opportunity to work in a professional retail environment where you can meet with clients, host events and share best practices with other Consultants. Having a physical storefront also provides you with a greater community presence and the ability to gain new walk-in customers.
There’s nothing quite like the 1-on-1 support of a local Franchise Partner who is focused on the development and success of your travel career. In addition, you’ll be backed by the force of a 100+ Corporate support team dedicated to helping you succeed.
