About Cumbria Travel

Cumbria Travel first opened its doors in January 2015 in Whitehaven and we have never looked back.

We have far exceeded what we initially set out to achieve and have a highly knowledgeable team with a huge amount of combined experience in the travel industry. We pride ourselves on our unbiased advice, and finding our customers the holiday that fits them best, rather than having to push a preferred supplier.

After many years working at Thomas Cook and Co-operative Travel we decided to go it alone and set about finding a partner who would help us run our business our way. Brilliant Travel, part of the Barrhead Travel Group, was our perfect choice,giving us access to state of the art technology, a wide range of product and full bonding to enable us to bring something different to the high street.

We have been very successful since opening winning many awards. These include:

  • Best Newcomer Brilliant Travel Group
  • Best Newcomer Jet2holidays
  • CN Group Best New Business in Cumbria
  • Top Shop Brilliant Travel Group
  • Top Travel Consultant Brilliant Travel Group - Won by Jamie Hetherington
  • Top Group Agent UK Jet2holidays
  • Top City Break Agent UK Jet2holidays
  • TTG Top Travel Agent North West England 2018

In our 1st year we were delighted to reach the finals of the Travel Trade Gazette Top 50 Agents in The UK a completely unique and outstanding achievement for a New Company. The following year we took this a step further, again reaching the finals and placing Runner Up for The North West of England , Our 3rd year saw us named the overall WINNER for the North West of England 2018 ,we are so extremely Proud of this achievement and cannot thank our customers and team enough for their contribution towards us winning this prestigious award.

January 2017 seen us open our second branch of Cumbria Travel at Dunmail Park, Workington. This location is West Cumbria's only shopping mall so it provides an out of town location with free parking and 7 days trading. We are absolutely thrilled that this shop has just reached the final 5 for the Travel Trade Gazette Top 50 Agents 2019 North West Region.

January 2019 has seen us open our third branch at 31-33 Fisher Street, Carlisle, which co-incidentally is the same street that the first ever Cumbria Travel traded on for many years before changing its name. (The original business is not linked to us ). We are very excited to see what the future holds in this superb location in the centre of the city.
