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 over a 150 years 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 the perfect fit, 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 winning many awards. These include :
In our our 1st year we were delighted to reach the finals of the Travel Trade Gazette Top 50 Agents in The UK a completely outstanding achievement for a New Company. The following year we took this a step further, again reaching the finals and polling Runner Up for The North West of England, we are extremely Proud of this achievement. Our 1st year of trading also saw us named Best New Company in Cumbria by The CN Group, an award not just for the Travel Industry.
Since opening we have also won:
Due to demand, we now have a Homeworker for those of you unable to come into store and January 2017 saw us open our second branch of Cumbria Travel at Dunmail Park, Workington.
We are sincerely thankful for all we have achieved and thank all our customers old and new.
We can’t wait to see what the future holds for us and you our customers.
