Scottish-based agency Barrhead Travel will remain a member of Advantage Travel Centres despite setting up a standalone buying group with Midcounties Co-operative.
The agency has confirmed it will continue to use some of the consortium’s services, including the Focus Partnership and Advantage’s central payment system CAPS and will continue attending conferences.
Sharon Munro, chief executive of Barrhead Travel, said: “We are pleased to agree the basis for our continued membership of Advantage as we value the long-standing relationship we have and the benefits we receive.
“We have attended the annual Advantage Conference and we will continue to benefit from being a member of the Focus Partnership. Advantage does not interfere with how we operate our business and we can continue to benefit from selected services that allow us to keep our entrepreneurial business spirit flourishing.”
Julia Lo Bue-Said, leisure director at Advantage Travel Centres, said: “This move underlines the additional value Advantage provides its members. We are not just a buying group, but providing the extra products and services helps members in many aspects of their business and allows them to trade effectively.
“It just shows how important and valuable all the benefits we offer are, even to members as large as Barrhead.”
