THE CHERRY PICKED TRAVEL STORY
Cherry Picked Travel was founded on the ethos that we wanted to provide customers with travel experiences that are the start of great stories. We believe our customers should be able to access indelibly interesting travel experiences with the minimum amount of effort.
We provide unique packages for savvy travellers who are time poor. People that don’t necessarily want lots of choice – they want all that thinking done for them and to be able to select from a limited number of carefully curated experiences, comfortable in the knowledge that Cherry Picked Travel has done all investigating and hard work for them. Travellers that enjoy the finer things in life, but understand value. That want new and unique travel experiences but don’t want to be uncomfortable. And want to feel part of a destination, not just a tourist viewing it through the window of a bus.
Travellers are better informed than ever, but are finding it harder to make a decision. Cherry Picked Travel is about making that decision a lot easier.
Cherry Picked Travel is an online and mobile travel agency. We have clients all across Australia and use phone, email, Skype and live chat to work with those clients. We also have mobile travel agents in north, south and west Brisbane and are happy to organise face to face briefings.
We also offer a specialist honeymoon service, which can be found at Cherry Picked Honeymoons.
