“Garry and I bought our franchise 7 years ago after thinking about it for quite a while. We spoke to some good friends of ours, who are also Franchisees, and they told us all about the company and how GoCruise & Travel feels like a family. We were a bit dubious about this but it’s true! GoCruise & Travel really has a family feel where help is always at hand. The support and advice we also get from our Head Office is also invaluable, especially when first starting your business, and you never feel alone. Our business has gone from strength to strength and we can honestly say that buying our Franchise is one of the best things we’ve ever done. We are based at home and work the business around any other commitments. We love every minute of it!”

“Having spent most of my career in retail travel I decided to become a GoCruise & Travel Franchisee 7 years ago. It was the best career move I ever made. I am my own boss and chose my own hours but have the security of the GoCruise & Travel team behind me... and best of all keep the majority of the commission earned on all holidays booked! I never feel alone as there is always practical help available from Head Office & fellow franchisees.”
“I knew my passion was always in the cruise industry, I wanted something which would fit around my family providing the flexibility of working from home but also provide back-up business support in areas such as marketing and administration. A reputable, quality brand was important to me and therefore a GoCruise & Travel franchise seemed the ideal opportunity. The whole process was straight forward yet thorough and with full details of the franchise I knew exactly what I was getting. Over the years I have built up my database through marketing and personal recommendations to provide a personal service to both new and repeat customers and had the opportunity to take stands at county shows, exhibitions and of course, undertaken numerous ship visits. Now 13 years on, I still have the flexibility I wanted together with Head Office support provided by a friendly team of cruise enthusiasts who are genuinely eager to support or always at the end of a phone.”
