Craig Travel started in Workington around 40 years ago by Shirley Craig. Around 25 years ago it was bought by Stewart Phillips. 16 Years ago it was purchased by Andrew Nelson who still owns it to this day. Andrew also owns Admiral Travel in Altrincham, Cheshire. Craig travel thrived under the new ownership and outgrew its premises so the decision to move to Murray Road was taken. We continued to grow, so chose to open another branch in Cockermouth, initially on Main Street before moving to our current premises on Station Road. We sell everything, package holidays, flights only, Coach holidays, Ski holidays, Escorted tours, Cruises, Long Haul, Accommodation only, Attraction tickets, Travel Insurance and Foreign Exchange. All our holidays are financially protected, and because we are part of the Hays Travel Group (UK's biggest independent travel group) we have the best prices on all our holidays, allowing us to confidently state ìWe will not be beaten on price!
