Barrhead Travel was found in 1975, when Bill Munro began operating from an unremarkable shop in the south Glasgow suburb of Barrhead with just 4 employees.
Fast forward nearly forty years, and you’ll find that our company has mushroomed into a multi-faceted travel giant with around 800 employees in over 45 branches – and Barrhead Travel is now one of the largest and most successful travel groups in the UK.
Our motto is “Never to be beaten on price, service or quality”, and that’s what our reputation has been built on. As an independent travel agency, we’re not aligned to any one tour operator, and so you can trust that we’ll find the best holiday for your needs from a huge selection of suppliers. Additionally, our massive buying power means our customers benefit from the lowest possible prices.
We offer the best priced holidays and cruises in the marketplace, as well as excellent service and guaranteed quality – a winning combination for our customers. We invest heavily in technology and training, so that we can be sure that a Barrhead Travel holiday delivers every time.
Recognised by independent researchers as one of the most financially-strong travel businesses in the UK, peace of mind comes with every purchase from Barrhead Travel. All of our package holidays are completely financially protected, so your money is always secure.
We’re open extended hours, so you can contact us when it suits you best. Alternatively, you can book online at any time. We offer a phenomenal range of travel products and services, from sunshine package holidays to UK breaks, cruises, weddings abroad, long-haul trips, family holidays, hotel stays and flights, and we have fully-trained experts on the front line who will help you find that ideal holiday at value for money prices. Many of our holidays are tailor-made, for just that reason, as we recognise that one size doesn’t necessarily fit all.
Barrhead Travel has never stood still, and in the years ahead we’ll continue to evolve and to provide the lowest prices, top-notch service and the best value for our customers.
We are delighted to be announced UK Travel Group of the year and Best Large Scottish Travel agency in 2013.
