  • Overview

    CheapCaribbean.com is an online travel agency specializing in beach vacations that was acquired by ALG in 2013. CheapCaribbean.com is an industry leader in Caribbean vacations and is expanding rapidly. Our mission is to ‘Rock the World through the Wonder of Travel’! As many fast-growing e-commerce companies, we have a fun, entrepreneurial, non-hierarchical culture, with an office that is more akin to Silicon Valley startups than Dallas corporates. At the same time, being a subsidiary of Apple Leisure Group (ALG) gives us resources that are out of reach for many smaller companies.

     

    The ALG Vacations organization includes seven distribution brands, both established and new, that market and sell vacations through travel agents and directly to the consumer. Our senior leaders and many of our team members hail from America’s largest travel businesses, making us a great place to build your knowledge of the travel industry while getting significant ownership and breadth of responsibilities.
