RIP Wicked Travel, finally the now disrespected brand leaves our livesMay 3rd, 2018 | | Uncategorized
I don’t need to repeat the journey we have all taken with Wicked Travel over recent times, but what I would like to bring to you attention is its final demise.
You see Wicked Travel and Greyhound Wicked Travel (both versions of that name, before and after the liquidiation of Wicked Travel) are no more. Greyhound Australia have closed a few more under-performing stores and are now in the process of rebranding and realigning the stores they have left under their own umbrella.
There are five stores remaining (for now), these are Sydney (Pitt Street), two in Byron Bay and two in Cairns. The other Sydney stores in George Street and Bondi Beach both closed last month. Greyhound Australia also has a ticket office in Eddy Avenue, but there are currently no plans to sell 3rd party travel from this site.
The journey for this transition has clearly not been easy, but that chapter has closed and a corner has been turned. Greyhound stands behind all staff and its now a company (and travel brand) that is on the move. This can be seen by the new Whimit campaign and its in-store launches.
Well done Alex and the rest of the team at Greyhound Australia. Congratulations, good luck, onward and upward.
