Founded in 1975, The Barrhead Travel Group has grown from a single high street shop to a travel giant with 900 employees across 61 UK outlets, including travel agency stores, Business Travel offices and contact centres. Since the early days of the company, we’ve recognised that to be the best, we must have the best people working for us, and so our team members enjoy a programme of training and development that is unmatched in the travel business. Our specialist departments are staffed by enthusiastic and knowledgeable experts who like nothing better than to help find you the perfect holiday, from cruises to worldwide trips, from UK breaks to Canadian journeys, and from winter-sports to sun-soaked escapes. And we’re open extended hours, so that you can enquire and book your holiday at a time that suits you. Not simply a travel agency, Barrhead Travel operates its own summer charter flight programme from three UK airports to destinations in the Mediterranean each year, taking over 22,000 holidaymakers to the sun. Our innovative holiday options, attention to detail and excellent value mark us out from the crowd. That’s why we have been voted UK Travel Agent of the Year at the Travel Trade Gazette Awards for seven years in a row.
Our company’s come a long way in 41 years. We’re now the UK’s leading independent travel group, booking over 300,000 people on holidays each year. That’s because we live and breathe holidays. You’ll find Barrhead Travel stores across Scotland, the North of England and Northern Ireland, but even if there isn’t yet a branch near you, our friendly telephone travel consultants are happy to help you source and book your perfect trip. With a stable of 6 specialist websites, booking your travel online has never been easier, and thanks to our special relationships with the world’s leading tour operators, tourist boards, airlines and travel suppliers, you’ll find more choice and the best prices at Barrhead Travel. We have exclusive products that simply can’t be found anywhere else, and as leaders in travel technology, we have the information at our fingertips that will help you to make informed holiday choices.
Working at Barrhead Travel has opened so many doors for me
Love working in travel! Going to Barbados this year as part of my training and development programme!”
All the training that is provided at Barrhead Travel means that I have the knowledge I need to book customers their dream holiday, which is really satisfying
This year I went to Sharm el Sheik on a familiarisation trip, which I really enjoyed. I learned so much about this resort, and got to know some of my colleagues better too
