The CP Traveler

CP Travelers are those interested in exploring the world and embracing new cultures, people, and places near and far.  CP Travelers aren't looking for traditional methods of traveling via tours packed with tourists shops and unnecessary stops that don't allow you to fully enjoy your vacation. CP Travelers desire to take their vacation experience into their own hands and truly discover what their particular location has to offer in ways best suited for them.  

Our Mission

CP Travels is committed to creating unique travel experiences for people from all walks of life. The first step is always the most difficult, and we strive to help those we work with reach their travel goals with ease and ZERO setbacks.  

Beyond The Standard

We work with each of our CP Travelers to create a custom travel experience that best fits their travel desire for every location they wish to visit. Through our in depth traveler survey, and personal interviews with each member of the CP Travels team, we leave no bases uncovered and no question unasked when working to create the final travel package. 

We want to know your vision for your experience and more. If you are a vegan, we'll make sure you find the places that fit your diet. Not big on partying? No problem, we'll guide you to the right entertainment that fits your persona. Don't want to waste a single moment during your well deserved vacation? We'll pack your itinerary from top to bottom with non stop action to keep you on your toes and maximize your travel experience. We care and want to know everything that makes you the amazing person that you are, and want to use all these facts and more to create the best experience possible for our CP Travelers. 

Change Your Perspective

At CP Travels we realize that not everyone is afforded the luxury of being able to travel internationally as freely as they would like to. That does not mean that the desire for a change in scenery and a refreshing motivating experience disappears. If anything it's quite the opposite. If you're a native of Houston, Texas working long hours each day and have one free weekend in your nearby future to go somewhere in America but no time to plan it, we want to be the people that you turn to. 

We, CP Travels, as people want to reach out to and help the everyday person who wants to know what options they have in taking a break from reality and enjoying life to the fullest, without paying an exorbitant amount of money, or working through a package that's been used by several hundreds of people and not catered to your own needs, wants, and desires. 

At CP Travels we understand how quickly work can consume even the most organized of individuals.  Before they know it, everything they had planned is so far at the end of the tunnel that bothering to look or even think of planning becomes stressful in and of itself. That's why we are available via email, online registration, phone calls, and when applicable personal visits to you directly to help get your travel adventure planned and off the ground. 

Wrapped Around You

Each package created for our CP Travelers are custom made from scratch to ensure a personalized travel experience. From where you will be lodged to what restaurants you'll find yourself eating at it's all designed to meet your every need not just sometimes, but every step of the way.  From honeymoons, to best friend trips, to the savvy adventurous solo traveler expedition, CP Travels works to meet the travel needs for our wide range of customers.

Doesn't End With Send

CP Travels prides itself on its' availability to its' travelers. Even after you've received all documentation and information from us we are still available to you 24/7 throughout your entire trip. Whether it's a last minute change to your trip that you'd like to make and need our advice on, or if you're having so much fun and want to stay where you are and explore more and just need a little more information to get you up and on your way the CP Travels team is available to you every step of the way. 

A wise traveler once said " You can always make more money, but you can not make more time. Use the little precious time that we have available to us to see and cherish  the many wonders of the world."  Whether it's 50 miles outside of the city to a place you've never been, or it's a ten hour flight halfway across the world; there is still so much to see, so much to do, and so much for each of us to learn through travel. So get moving and let CP Travels help you plan an experience of a lifetime! .
