Almost 40 years ago, Barrhead Travel started life as a tiny shop on a high street in a Glasgow suburb. Now the company has grown to become Scotland’s largest travel group, and is one of the biggest in the UK, with more than 55 locations and employee numbers in excess of 750. We’ve received many awards over the years, but we consider that being named a Sunday Times Best Company to Work For for 5 years running is our finest achievement, as our employees vote anonymously on a range of topics regarding their workplace. Our reputation has been built on providing great travel products, great service, and great prices, and that’s something that will never change. Our buying power gives us the best deals with suppliers, and we pride ourselves on offering products that simply can’t be found anywhere else. We have a host of specialist departments, such as Cruise, Longhaul, Canada and Flights, all staffed by people who are experts in their field and who can give impartial advice to help their clients find the ideal holiday. But many of our general sales consultants have amassed considerable all-round travel experience, and don’t want to specialise, as they love the buzz of not knowing what their next enquiry will involve.
