I joined Cruise Planners in 2016 after working with a host agency for a year. I was looking for an agency with excellent marketing and technology. I found this with Cruise Planners! They have excellent technology that saves me hours of time weekly with the social media program and there award winning group programs and reservation system and preferred suppliers relationships and higher commission. Their training is wonderful and they have many courses you can take to continue your education. I have learned so much about the travel industry with Cruise Planners and so glad I decided to go with them!
I started as an associate with a franchise of Cruise Planners back in 2019 before the pandemic hit. I didn't make any sales in 2020 and it wasn't until 2022 when I started really focusing on this work. I sold less than $600 my first year of doing this basically part to full time, and just this year alone have sold over $65k in travel. Cruise Planners has all the best technology, support, commission rates, and training. I truly feel proud to work for such an amazing company that is always staying one step ahead of the travel trends. I've learned so much through the company's trainings, their weekly Live zooms, and just from the CP community. CP Green is famous and it's wonderful to work for a company that people know about or at least have heard of.
I joined Cruise Planners in 1998 after being with a smaller company for 9 years that merged with another company. I have been thrilled with this company ever since. They have never failed to help me and guide me and support me for the last 25 years, and I couldn't be happier. My husband and partner and I joined together until his death in 2021, after which I became the sole franchisee. When he died I received tremendous support and caring from top management on down. Everyone was so nice to me and so patient with me as I took up my husband/partner's part of the business and continued on as a sole proprieter. It was very difficult going through Covid, but they were always there to help, and I am well on my way to having one of my best years ever. The helpful advice I have received enabled me to continue to do my best and be my best. I couldn't be with a better company or better people than I am now.
Best decision my wife and I made was to purchase a Cruise Planners franchise. We both retired early from the Federal Government as financial regulators. We sort of fell into this retirement career from knowing another Cruise Planner travel advisor. We did our due diligence and discovered Cruise Planners was the number one rated home-based travel franchises. The training and support are top notch and the enthusiasm from the management team is infectious and inspiring. Not only do we get to plan vacations for friends and friends of friends, we have had the benefits of traveling the world. It starts slow and with no real magic, other than providing good service, our clientele continues to expand each year. The COVID years were depressing, but we have bounced back with a vengeance, reaching over $1 million in sales for 2023. I’ve met other non-CP agents at various travel events and though our conversations, it has only re-enforced that we made the right decision with our investment with the Cruise Planners family.
I purchased my Cruise Planners franchise because I felt that this company had integrity and I trusted them to help me develop a business. From Day 1, I felt supported and encouraged. My coaches were fantastic and through their help, I grew from $0 to $50k my first year to $325k my second year to $600k my third year. I had NO travel background. Cruise Planners gave me the tools to learn everything I needed to know. The pandemic was bad, but it was great because of the management of Cruise Planners. They stood by us and helped us, enabling me to stay in business and grow professionally. What company does that?! I can say without reservation that Cruise Planners is an amazing and special company. There aren't enough positive things I can say about them, and I have to admit that I really love the top leadership of Cruise Planners and all the great people who work in the Home Office. You will never meet a group of people like them. We are a family.
My wife and I joined Cruise Planners in 2012 after successful careers in totally different industries. We were drawn to the business-in-a-box simplicity of the franchise model, the vast amount of training and education, the vendor relationships, the technology, the marketing and our passion for travel itself.
Every day I revalidate that this was a great decision. We have learned to value all of the above mentioned items, as well as the tremendous home office support, the constant improvements in client acquisition tools, client communication tools, marketing programs, proprietary technology and so much more.
I loved my previous career however I wish I had found Cruise Planners twenty years earlier.
I started with Cruise Planners in April of 2023. I had always been interested in travel and I am reaching the age where I am thinking of retiring but I want something to do to have a little income to go with retirement. Someone had said they were a travel agent and I asked them about it and they sent me the link to Cruise Planners. I have been impressed by almost everything that I have looked at. The people that work there truly act like they enjoy what they are doing. Everyone that I talk with about helping me with anything I need help with have been very helpful. While there is more to this business than I have ever imagined I am impressed by how much they have access to and how helpful they are to make me succeed. They are not concerned with how much I do only by how much I want to do and they want to help me accomplish that whether it is a sale a month or the top salesman in the company they will help me to succeed with my goals.
I purchased my franchise in 2017 and just love being part of the Cruise Planners family. CP is always so supportive to my business and you can see everyone loves their position. CP is so innovative and always doing everything they can to support their advisors. So happy I chose to purchase my CP business and become part of this beautiful family!
We have been Cruise Planners for 19 years and have enjoyed the increasing support from this great company. We have 2 associates who enjoy being Cruise Planners agents. We would recommend Cruise Planners to anybody who wants to sell travel. We hope to be Cruise Planners franchise owners for another 10 years.
I joined Cruise Planners in the Fall of 2018 when I decided that I was tired of working for others and wanted to work for myself for a change. I already had a background in corporate meetings, events and travel and did a lot of research online into home-based agencies and I ultimately chose Cruise Planners due to the background of the owners, the relationships with travel suppliers and the technology and support offered. When Covid hit I was just starting to see my business take off (they say it takes about 2 years) and I was devastated. I had no idea if I was going to be able to maintain my business with no income coming in. The executives of Cruise Planners had our backs! I could not have been more impressed with how they stepped up to support the franchise owners during that difficult time. I was able to eek through and keep my business afloat until travel started up again. Last year, I could definitely see the light at the end of the tunnel. Bookings were up and I was starting to make money. Right now, we're only halfway through 2023 and I have already tripled my sales from last year and my commission projections for next year are actually already more than what I've made to date this year. I am so glad I chose Cruise Planners and I'm glad I stuck with it. Being a Travel Advisor is not a cake-walk, by any means, so if you're thinking this is an easy-peasey stay-at-home job, thing again! I work a lot of hours to provide the best service to my clients but I love what I do and I appreciate all of the training and technology that CP offers to help me do my best. And they continue to evolve and grow and therefore, so shall I! You can't go wrong choosing to join the CP Green Team. If you decide to join CP, tell them I sent you :)
