May 22, 2020 - While we’ve all had to put our love of travel on hold, we have never been more dedicated to supporting our Vacation Consultants. We’re here and will always be here to provide them with the tools, service, and unparalleled support to ensure their success. Travel is resilient and we know when the world is ready, it will come back stronger than ever and our customers will be looking forward to their next extraordinary vacation by air, land, or sea. At Expedia Cruises, we’re here to help set you apart and give you the competitive advantage to take on this inevitable pent-up demand.
Here are just a few ways our Vacation Consultants take advantage of the Expedia Cruises difference:
- They have the entrepreneurial freedom to run their own local travel business while being backed by the world’s largest travel brand (named #1 travel brand in the world by Travel Weekly Power List for seven consecutive years). The trust and recognition of the Expedia brand creates instant confidence and credibility with travelers and helps our Vacation Consultants grow their customer relationships.
- They can take advantage of a powerful booking platform with Expedia Group’s massive inventory of both cruise and non-cruise products and earn commission on most Expedia products booked through them.
- Our tremendous buying power and partnership with our suppliers means our Vacation Consultants earn the highest offered supplier commissions in the industry - up to 18% for cruise and land vacations and between 25 - 44% for insurance.
- They receive the one-on-one support of a local Franchisee who is focused on the development and success of their travel career in addition to a 140+ corporate support team. Most host agencies don’t offer this level of support.
- They get access to exclusive promotions throughout the year where participating suppliers offer incredible value and exclusive offers, such as reduced deposits, prepaid gratuities, beverage packages, onboard credits.
While we still sail through some rough seas, you may be uncertain whether this will be the right time to consider a career in travel. At Expedia Cruises, we know that the only thing constant in life is change and we are constantly evolving to ensure our Vacation Consultants maintain the competitive edge even in times of adversity.
