Barrhead Travel agencies will operate a “closed-door” policy for all its branches across the UK from Saturday (March 21), because of the coronavirus crisis.

A statement from the Glasgow-headquartered agency chain said: “This means our teams will be in their local branch as normal, but will communicate with you, their loyal customers, by telephone, email or social media.

“You can rest assured your future travel plans are in good hands and our teams will be working hard to continue to deliver a personalised service.
