EXPEDIA Cruises Air, Land & Sea Vacations | Welcome to the Neighbourhood

Air, land and sea…visit Expedia to help get you where you want to be! Meet Owen Hargreaves, the co-owner of Downtown Oakville's newest travel enterprise, EXPEDIA Cruises, located at the corner of Lakeshore Road East and Navy Street.




About EXPEDIA Cruises Air, Land & Sea Vacations

Our franchise opened in 2015 and we recently moved from Kerr Street to the heart of beautiful and historic Downtown Oakville. We are your neighborhood travel experts, and as our passion for travel continues to evolve, so does our outlook on how we serve our customers and our local community. While our cruise expertise is second-nature, we like to provide every travel opportunity to our customers, whether it's by air, land or sea.


We are cruise experts and offer every cruise option to every corner of the world, near or far. You can travel by sea along centuries-old rivers, on large or small ships, on themed or luxury cruises, or on a quick budget-friendly escape, all while on board the top cruise lines in the world. Expedia is the #1 brand name in travel. We are powered by the best in the business and harness those resources to navigate your perfect vacation while sourcing the best deals, available upgrades and every opportunity to add value to your trip. We are also partnered with the best in the business. All of our cruise and land suppliers offer award-winning vacation experiences to every corner of the world. We help you compare and explore these options while taking advantage of promotions and exclusive Expedia bonuses.


It is part of our mission and promise to be connected with the community and charitable initiatives are very important to us. Since 2015, we have partnered with and supported The Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children, providing vacation experiences to help raise funds for this amazing organization. We have also supported, many times and in the same way, the Oakville Humane Society.




How and why did your decide to pursue your business?

I (and my entire family!) am super passionate about travel! There are so many ways to experience our amazing world and we love to provide every travel option. Whether it's overseas or close to home, we offer vacation packages, all-inclusive resorts, coach and rail tours, home and villa rentals, travel insurance, as well as flights, hotels, car rentals, activities and excursions.


Being such a travel bug, I enjoy sharing my experiences. I feel very lucky to have seen so many places and met so many amazing people. One of my favourite destinations is the Galapagos. My wife and I actually loved it so much we ventured back with our son! Hosting groups on river cruises sailing the Christmas Markets was also very exciting. We look forward to our Hosted Cruises in 2022 and 2023!



What are you most passionate about in your business?

Travel is my life! I am in the business 24/7 of talking and living travel. I seem to connect every movie or dinner to a vacation experience. I love sharing my passion for travel and cruises with others and couldn't imagine doing anything else (even after the most challenging last year and a half!). We are proud of how far we've come and are excited about how far we will go, together. Most of all, we look forward to sharing our passion for travel with you, our valued customers and fellow travel enthusiasts!


What do LOVE about Downtown Oakville?

Love the sense of community. Love that you can just go for a walk and buy something unique, whether it's a gift or a treat for yourself, from such a mix of businesses. Love that the Downtown captures all of your senses, like the smell of fresh baked goods and the sight of an absolutely stunning streetscape. I also love being so close to the lake - I'm always more relaxed near bodies of water. And, of course, the vibe - it's like no other.



Tell us something about yourself that might surprise others.

I have cruised over 112 times...and my 8-year old son has cruised over 22 times! And, I have 10 more cruises booked for the next few years!
