One of the Barrhead's best-known firms is launching an event to help people to find out more about booking a getaway.

Barrhead Travel has come up with a hybrid concept for its flagship summer cruise exhibition with offline and online opportunities to engage with the travel agency.

From August 27 to August 30, the company will be inviting customers to join them virtually through sessions and question and answer panels.

Customers will also be able to book in-store specialist appointments or plan their holiday from home via video appointments.

The travel agency will be offering exclusive discounts, prizes and added-value for those booking during this time.

Jacqueline Dobson, Barrhead Travel's president, said: "This summer, the ‘seacation’ was one of the most popular holiday types.

"These coastal cruises gave many new-to-cruise customers the chance to try out their first ever one and this has resulted in an increase in demand for future cruise bookings for a whole new market."
