Having been in business for over 32 years, Expedia has been through a number of similar situations, including 9/11, the SARS outbreak, the H1N1 Pandemic, Zika virus, and many more global crises that have impacted people throughout recent years. After every single one of these crises, the travel industry as a whole has bounced back stronger than ever.Travelers are passionate about seeing and experiencing the world. In times like this, the desire to travel doesn’t go away, but the world tends to take a pause. This creates pent-up demand and when the crisis inevitably subsides, the strength and resources of Expedia allows our franchisees to take advantage of the uptick in consumer demand and steal market share through our world-class marketing, technology, and customer service.Most importantly, the franchise discovery journey for a candidate, from inquiry to opening their doors, takes roughly 6-9 months. This development window allows candidates the perfect opportunity to build the foundation of their business now, while opening their retail travel center just in time for the resurgence of travel demand.Key Highlights of an Expedia Franchise:Travel industry is extremely resilient9 out of 10 cruisers say they will cruise againDemand for expertise is growing with 70% of cruisers booking travel with a travel agentBuild equity in a scalable retail business, backed by the buying power of the largest and most recognized brand in travelBenefit from a brick and mortar proven franchise system offering more than 32 years of successFunding and financing options available to franchisees, allowing them access to their cash receivables earlier
