Cheryl Locke

Cheryl has been in the travel industry since 1984, having spent time working for a large multiple travel agency as well as a couple of independent agencies before joining Travel Stop in 2002. Prior to having her family, Cheryl spent time working in the Customer Relations Department of Thomas Cook and after the birth of her second child, she spent five years teaching the AS and A2 Level courses in Travel & Tourism at a college. But, missing the customer contact, she returned to the retail sector when joining Travel Stop and has remained here ever since.

Having a family did not deter Cheryl from travelling and they have simply joined her from a fairly early age, enjoying family holidays to Dubai, Mauritius, the Caribbean, San Francisco, skiing in Lake Tahoe, cruising in the Mediterranean and, more recently, having been to South Africa where they included a safari.

Still on Cheryl’s ‘Wish List’ is a visit to Australia which is currently in the planning, and a trip to Japan which she would love to combine with the Olympics in 2020.

Outside of work, she spends much of her time on the sidelines of a football or hockey pitch or on a cricket boundary, watching both her children play their various sports.
