With This Franchise, You Can Work From Home or Even on a Cruise Ship

Becoming a Dream Vacations franchisee means harnessing the allure of travel while setting your own hours.
By Entrepreneur Partner Studio Staff

Most people who love to travel don’t especially love to plan the trip. Let’s face it, connecting the dots between destinations, accommodations and transportation all while trying to experience the best of each location can be a full-time job.

That’s where Dream Vacations comes in. Sure, online booking sites have made it easier to make your own travel arrangements, but nothing beats letting a team of knowledgeable professionals get you the best experience for your budget.

With Dream Vacations, you can be one of those travel experts, guiding customers to alluring destinations all over the world, as well shore excursions, hotels and tours for individuals, couples, families, businesses and groups. Perhaps best of all, it’s something you can do full-time or even part-time.

“Our franchisees work from home, they work from Starbucks, they work while they’re on a cruise ship selling any type of vacation…utilizing our marketing, training and technology,” Janet Harris, Dream Vacations’ franchise development manager, says in the short video above. “I think we’re probably one of the few franchises that can be a part-time opportunity.”

Founded in 1991 and franchising since 1992, Dream Vacations’ training program makes it so you don’t have to be a travel expert to get started. All you need is a passion for travel and an interest in a fun business opportunity, Harris says.

Startup costs for a Dream Vacations franchise run between $3,245 and $21,850.
