Brace yourself, summer is coming! School’s out and for educators that typically means an unpaid 10-week break from school. For teaching professionals who are looking for ways to earn extra income while off duty, summer is the perfect time to learn about starting a home-based travel agency. One of the most flexible side hustles for teachers is working part-time as a travel advisor with a low-cost, home-based franchise business, which for many can turn into their next career.
Cruise Planners®, an American Express Travel Representative, is the perfect business opportunity and we make it easy to get started. Teachers don’t need travel experience to become a Cruise Planners travel advisor – just a passion for travel. For a limited time, teachers will receive a $500 marketing credit* when they start a Cruise Planners franchise and sign up to attend the STAR University starting on July 16, 2019 this summer, or a future STAR University training.
At the six-day STAR University training, educators, among other professionals looking to make a career change and increase their income, will hear from Cruise Planners’ owners and executives who have been in the travel industry for decades, as well as travel partners for their new travel advisor career. See what former teacher and Cruise Planners franchise owner Lori Osgood has to say about trading lesson plans for travel itineraries.
As an independent travel advisor, new franchise owners will help clients book exciting travel experiences, from cruises to guided land tours and all-inclusive resort vacations. They can work when they want from anywhere in the world, whether it’s at home or while traveling with a smart device. Cruise Planners will be there every step of the way to give travel advisors the training, tools, technology, support, and marketing and, teachers can jump-start their travel career by earning the industry’s highest commissions.
Cruise Planners has been ranked the No. 1 travel franchise for 16 consecutive years by Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking.
*Terms and Conditions: $500 marketing credit applies exclusively to educators and can be used for business cards, announcement postcards, banners and signs, online search campaigns, and more. Promotion offer ends June 30, 2019. Applicable for STAR University starting on July 16, 2019 and future trainings and for new franchise owners.
