How much money can I make?

As with any business, this depends on several factors. While marketing your Cruise Planners® business is important, the most important factor is you and the effort you invest in your business. We have franchisees who work their business five hours a week and those who work 80 hours. It’s completely up to you, but this too will affect your earning potential.

We have various training programs to help you add commas to your commissions – these are designed to help you upsell to higher-end products, add on commissionable elements such as travel insurance and pre- or post-hotel stays when travelers go on vacation, and more. There are also bundled packages you can sell through our CP Vacations program, offering a competitive advantage and earning you even more.

Also, Cruise Planners remains a leader with all the major cruise lines and tour operators, meaning you are earning the highest level of commission, just by being associated with Cruise Planners – not something that all other travel agencies can claim. Imagine having to start a business with the added responsibility of building and establishing a brand from scratch? Being a franchise owner under Cruise Planners, means you get access to start earning money with that built-in brand equity from the beginning. And don’t forget the American Express Travel branding, which is included in all marketing pieces created by the Home Office.

As a franchise, we cannot tell you how much money you will make since there are so many variables and its up to you to work this business, but we will help you set goals and show you our proven system to reach them. During your due diligence period, you’ll have the opportunity to speak with other Cruise Planners® franchisees about their experiences with running a home-based travel business.
