We would like to invite our customers to vote for us again this year and thank them for their continued support and loyalty to Barrhead Travel.”

BTA chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The British Travel Awards give you the opportunity to reward travel and tourism enterprises for outstanding performance in service delivery and product offering. Voting in the 2018 Awards is now open and nominated companies have until 30th September to lobby their happy customers for votes – good luck to Barrhead Travel.”
