Testimonials

“I have always dreamed of owning my own business and had extensive experience in corporate America. The support of the Expedia Cruises franchise system allows me to capitalize on my experience while taking advantage of a proven system. I'm not left to re-invent the wheel." - Jon Harvill, Birmingham, Alabama – Franchise Owner

“The idea of a big digital company also doing brick-and-mortar locations to appeal to every segment of the market was attractive to me and I felt that it was very forward-looking. Expedia is a household name that has instant credibility and instant familiarity with our customers. That is a big differentiator from most of our competitors who don’t have a big brand for people to connect with.” - Chris Meyerm Orange County, California – Franchise Owner
