Cruise & Caribbean Expert

Hi my name is Douglas and I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland. I started off working for Lunn Poly back in the 1990's then decided to work overseas for Thomson as a rep working in Majorca, Ibiza, Costa Blanca and Italy with a mixture of groups including young & lively and families.

After 3 wonderful years, I went to work for British Airways as a flight attendant, where I worked my way up to first class. Finally after 15 years of travelling worldwide, I decided to come back into travel.

I am currently working for Barrhead Travel as Assistant Manger at the Gyle and specialise in Weddings, Honeymoons, Single Travellers, River Cruise and I am a Sandals Specialist. I have been with the company for 8 years and everyday has been so different!

I am also a Cruise & Longhaul specialist and have travelled to many amazing destinations such as Mexico, Thailand, the Bahamas, South America and have also sailed with Cunard & Viking.

    Douglas has been great from the very start friendly and listened to what we wanted. When one of the party no longer wanted to go Douglas changed everything for us with no problem very fast and efficient.

  • Best Travel Agent

    Reviewed By Samantha - Edinburgh | Travelled to Mediterranean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea

    Douglas was extremely helpful while looking at cruises for our family. He sat down and listened to what we had wanted and what we had in mind. He searched different cruise deals, ships, destinations and dates to make sure that he had the best holiday on offer for ourselves. Douglas then mentioned that because we had booked with Barrhead Travel we would get a better rate on our currency, insurance and trips. Because of this we are now looking to add on trips with our cruise rather than wait until we get on the boat. I know because of Douglas' knowledge and experience with cruising himself that when we go it will be seamless and no hassle. I would recommend Douglas to anyone.

  • Best in the business holiday support

    Reviewed By Bob - Currie | Travelled to Caribbean

    Douglas always makes time to consider what we want as customers and is patient when we are considering our options. He is always willing to offer up opinions and advice, something we've now listened to on many occasions and accepted. He always goes an extra mile to get us what we want. His knowledge of the travel and vacation industry covers a very diverse range and we've used Douglas for cruises, beach holidays, fly drive, travel holidays, family and adult groups (up to 20 people) and city breaks. He's a friendly person and has excellent experience and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Douglas to you.
