Since the earliest days of sail there has been something special about travelling by sea. It's about fresh air, breathtaking views, new cultures and wonderful discoveries.
The cruise industry has continued to grow despite recent economic challenges and is one of the only sectors of travel to see such growth. More and more customers are choosing to cruise (as either a repeat of the holiday they know and love, or as a first time experience) based on the value for money that this type of holiday represents.
GoCruise, which is part of Fred. Olsen Travel Ltd, is one of the UK's largest specialist cruise agencies. We have seen significant business growth giving us a great base from which to include even more value for our franchisees.
We will set you up with your own territory with a population of around a quarter of a million and show you how to run your business from the comfort of your own home or premises.
Having bought into the GoCruise Franchise and having completed our residential training you will have access to the technology, tools and ongoing support from the GoCruise team at head office to ensure your business is a success.
Together we will look at how to market yourself within your territory, identify the opportunities available to you, get your phone ringing and most importantly look at how you book those cruises. You will have all the latest offers from all the major cruise lines as well as river cruises at your fingertips enabling you to maximise every sales opportunity.
