Invest in your passion for travel – no experience needed!

For more than 25 years, Cruise Planners has been giving people with a passion for travel and desire to be their own bossa low-cost franchise opportunity that can yield high returns.

A Great Business Opportunity for Veterans and First Responders

A Cruise Planners franchise is a great business opportunity for military veterans and first responders. The versatility and flexibility of a Cruise Planners franchise make it ideal for active military, veterans, and military spouses to run their own travel agencies from anywhere in the world.

At Cruise Planners, we are forever grateful for those who have sacrificed so much to ensure the safety and well-being of so many. That’s why we are proud to offer a special incentive program for first responders, active military personal, retired veterans, and their immediate family members to help grow their businesses.

Your success is our #1 priority

Unlike other travel franchises, our corporate office does not own competing travel companies and does not sell travel. Our focus is entirely on building your business. We provide comprehensive training to help get your business off the ground as well as a dedicated business development coach who provides you individualized attention every step of the way.

An involved executive team that is invested in you

Our executives aren’t just figure heads. They are hands-on and 100% dedicated to your success. Each member of our executive team attends all our trainings and draws upon decades of industry experience to lead informative classes on how to grow your business. Their main objective truly is to help you succeed.

More than just cruises

We’re proud of our name. It is one of the most recognized names in all the travel industry, and we have the sales numbers to prove it! But you can sell more than just cruises. We are top producers with all major travel partners, including cruise, land, travel insurance, excursions, flights, car rentals and more.
