Step 2: Why Expedia Cruises™?
Since 1987, Expedia Cruises has been an industry leader in air, land and sea vacation sales across North America, and is backed by the most powerful travel brand in the world – Expedia.
Our Vacation Consultants are your local neighborhood travel experts, from communities near you. They leverage the powerful brand reach and resources of the #1 name in travel, while using our state-of-the art technology, award-winning marketing program, and established relationships with top travel suppliers to achieve inevitable success in their travel careers.
Build Your Success with a Powerful Brand
As part of Expedia Group™, you can benefit from Expedia’s massive buying power and the instant recognition that comes with being part of the #1 brand in travel (ranked by the Travel Weekly Power List). By offering our customers an integrated booking experience, you can gain new sales leads not only from your personal network, but from our customized award-winning marketing program, storefront walk-in traffic, and from the high-volume online platforms of ExpediaCruises.com, Expedia.com and Expedia.ca – a unique offering unmatched by any of our travel competitors!
In addition, you can take advantage of our powerful booking platform with Expedia Group’s best inventory of both cruise and non-cruise products such as all-inclusive resorts, home and villa rentals, vacation packages, coach and rail tours, travel insurance, and more. Plus, you’ll earn commission on all Expedia products booked through you.
Enjoy Flexibility in Your Career
You’ll have the flexibility to choose your work schedule based on your lifestyle. Whether you work full-time or part-time, your business can be whatever you make of it!
Earn Top Tier Commissions
By allowing our customers to book where, when, and how they choose, your ability to maximize your commission through online leads, in-person inquiries, or your personal Expedia Cruises website is limitless. Expedia Cruises enjoys tremendous buying power with every cruise line and land supplier which means you’ll earn the highest supplier commissions in the industry - up to 18% for land and cruise and up to 44% on many other travel products.
Travel the World
You may consider travel benefits as a "perk", but we prefer to think of it as on-the-job training. Whether you take advantage of a travel agent learning trip or one of many other travel opportunities, you'll broaden your horizons, enjoy an amazing travel experience of your own, and gain valuable knowledge at the same time.
Offer More With Exclusive Promotions
Expedia Cruises’ promotions are well-known and highly anticipated by our customers. In addition, with a guaranteed inventory of over 6,000 group sailings and Expedia® Exclusive Staterooms, our Vacation Consultants have the opportunity to provide even more value and savings to their customers with exclusive Expedia® Extras such as onboard cash credits, free drink packages, prepaid gratuities, free airfare, and more.
In addition to Expedia® Extras, with every booking our customers can earn exclusive Expedia Rewards points. This loyalty program gives customers the opportunity to earn points towards future travel every time they book, rewarding them with future savings, and giving you the competitive edge to secure their return business. On top of that, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that we’ve always got your back. Our programs are managed by a dedicated Corporate team who are always available to help you win a sale over a competitor’s quote.
Fun Retail Environment
Unlike most other travel agent opportunities, you will have the opportunity to work in a professionally branded retail travel agency where you can meet with customers, host in-store or virtual events, and attract walk-in customers to your brick-and-mortar stores and engage with your community. You’ll make long-lasting relationships not only with your customers, but with your fellow Vacation Consultants. After all, you’ll have a common interest in the joy of travel, and we admire how our agents share best practices and learn from one another to achieve mutual success.
