Barrhead Travel - a Glasgow based Advantage Focus Group member - has signed a three year contract committing to expand their relationship with Amadeus. Already an Amadeus Cruise customer, Barrhead Travel will now introduce the latest version of the Amadeus Selling Platform for air, car and hotel reservations, as well as offering Amadeus e-Travel Management to its corporate travel customers.
Convinced of the benefits, reliability, and flexibility of Amadeus solutions, and recognising the superior service levels offered, Barrhead Travel is also developing new cruise and air booking applications for their websites to provide increased customer choice.
“Having been a customer of Amadeus using Amadeus Cruise since 2003, we know that the quality of service and flexible approach Amadeus offers to our growing business is exactly what is required, especially as we look to enhance our website booking capability and online presence,” said Mark Brock, Associate Director, Barrhead Travel.
Julian Mills, Director of Sales, Amadeus UK & Ireland, said, “After experiencing our customer-friendly staff and reliable technology first hand, we are delighted that Barrhead Travel, a significant player in both the leisure and business travel arenas, has chosen Amadeus to underpin its future growth strategy. The Amadeus team is looking forward to helping Barrhead Travel to continue delivering a superior customer service both online and offline with our class leading travel technology.”
Barrhead Travel has been operating for over 30 years. Throughout this time the company has expanded from an initial shop in Barrhead (Glasgow) employing five consultants to its current status as one of the UK’s largest truly independent travel companies with 350 employees. Barrhead Travel remains committed to providing a comprehensive and competitive travel offering while maintaining high levels of service to its clients.
