Barrhead Travel’s first shop opened in a Glasgow suburb in 1975. Now, it’s Scotland’s largest independent travel group, and one of the most successful travel agencies in the UK, employing 850 people across 60 locations.
This multi-faceted company is no ordinary travel agent. As well as running an in-house charter flight programme, it offers bespoke holidays across the globe, employs travel experts across a range of specialist areas, and operates its own inhouse Training Department.
The Brilliant Travel division was launched in 2013 to oversee and to expand the managed service branches and home-based travel specialist areas of the business.
Barrhead Travel’s many awards include Best UK Travel Agency at the Travel Trade Gazette Awards for 6 consecutive years and Best Large Travel Agency in Scotland at the Agent Achievement Awards for 15 years running. It was also named Employer of the Year at the Scottish Business Awards in 2012 and has been recognised as a Sunday Times Top 100 Company to Work For.
