Independent travel agency Barrhead Travel who are based in Glasgow, Scotland have recently expanded into Northern Ireland by opening their first store there.

The chief Executive of Barrhead Travel, Sharon Munro, stated that the company saw enormous potential in Belfast. She added that choosing premises in Victoria Square for their new store has given Barrhead a fantastic opportunity to operate alongside major retailers as Victoria Square is one of the main shopping and leisure areas in Belfast.

Gary Martin, the associate director of retail at property agents Lambert Smith Hampton who brokered the deal for the Victoria Square premises, has welcomed the arrival of Barrhead Travel. He stated that they would be a welcome addition to the diverse mix of retailers currently based in Victoria Square. He added that the fact that Barrhead Travel had chosen to open their first store in Northern Ireland at Victoria Square was a testament to the success of it as a premier destination for both retail and leisure in Belfast.

Barrhead Travel Success

The company has established themselves as one of the most successful independent travel agencies in the UK. They now are operating at over 70 different stores and employ over 1000 staff. The stores set out to be a mix between the traditional methods used by a travel agency and the use of the most up to date and modern technology such as the use of VR headsets so that customers can really gain a feeling for the holiday destination before they book to go there.

Chief Executive Sharon Munro has stated that it is utilizing this type of technology that has set them apart from other travel agencies and contributed to their continued success.
