What does your company do?
Cloud Travel designs and plans bespoke travel plans for leisure and business travellers. We aim to create a personalised relationship between client and company that harkens back to the old days of having your travel agent just a call (in these days a Skype) away. The company does everything from booking flights, to accommodation, as well as transport and any other amenities requested by the client. We also design travel packages that are uniquely tailored to our client’s needs, eliminating the cold feeling of mass booked travel trips that are rife with travel guides and tourists. Instead, our clients enjoy an experience designed specifically for them.
What has been your biggest success?
We measure our success against the fact that Cloud Travel has grown from strength to strength with no start-up capital or investors. This company is the product of the hard work and sacrifice that two driven young women put in. Every contact and client was brought in organically, and although our company is small, we have reinvested most of our profit into growing our profile. From the first flight we booked, to bigger projects, our biggest success is that two women with a passion for travel came together, knuckled down and made magic from a website, hard work, determination, tenacity and an amazing ability to juggle enough to fill three schedules on a daily basis.
What has been your biggest hurdle?
Cloud Travel means everything to us, and our biggest hurdle has been the immense sacrifices we’ve made to create this dream. For me it has been balancing a full time job in HR while also running a company in between coffee breaks and late into the night. For Carey-Ann it has been giving up her home and full time employment to ensure that Cloud Travel always has a representative on stand by. Collectively our biggest hurdle has been the time we’ve sacrificed and although we may have lost many a weekend, night and quality time with loved ones, these hurdles have done nothing but strengthen our resolve to succeed.
