Mark Hatton, Director
Barrhead Travel is proud of its long membership of ABTA. The guidance and assistance received from the various departments within ABTA has always proved to be invaluable to our business, especially so with the revised and new regulations being introduced during the current period of significant change for the travel industry. The continuing high level of customer recognition of the ABTA brand is very important to us and we take every opportunity to highlight our membership of the Association. Customers also place a high value on the wide range of travel advice made easily available to them by ABTA when preparing for a holiday trip.

As Customer Services Manager for Riviera Travel, my team and I find the support provided by the Member Services team to be invaluable. It cannot be over-stated how reassuring it is to be able to access ABTA expertise and advice so quickly and easily; one of the friendly and approachable team is always just a phone call away. We know that our queries, no matter how complicated, will always be given due consideration and the advice provided is invariably sound, clear and can be applied with confidence. We rely on ABTA for support, not only for new situations and serious issues, but also sometimes just to confirm that we are on the right lines. We are delighted with and can thoroughly recommend this service.

For over 60 years, customers have looked for the ABTA logo when booking their holiday and business travel arrangements, knowing that it symbolises high standards of service, accurate information and a straightforward complaint handling service if something goes wrong. This sense of trust is paramount in today's climate and as such we are extremely pleased to have secured membership. Simplexity Travel has always prided itself on offering the highest standards, but the extra security this accreditation gives our customers is invaluable.

The industry has changed so much over the years and quite frankly, we wouldn’t have kept up with the legalities without the help of ABTA. They have been a constant in the travel industry throughout its highs and lows and have always been there to help the high street agency. Our clients certainly feel reassured still that we are members of ABTA. We’ve used most of their services over the years and can honestly say that whoever you speak to, you receive great service in a personal yet professional manner. They are very approachable and we are on first name terms with many people in the offices and wouldn’t hesitate to call if we needed advice about anything.
Jackie Standridge, Manager
ABTA and its logo is a sure way to your customer understanding that you are credit worthy, up to standard, financially secure, reputable, plus a lot more. They feel safe they will be buying a good product from a recommended agent. With all that out the way we can concentrate on finding the best holiday for the right price to our customer. It’s good to be an ABTA Member.

On behalf of all the team at Hyde Barker Travel I would like to say a big “Thank You” to ABTA for the excellent leaflet “The benefits of booking with an ABTA approved travel company.” We use these leaflets at our travel show, customer events and within our agency when handing out brochures. It's an excellent tool highlighting financial protection and also conveying a professional image to prospective clients.
Hyde Barker Travel were founder members of ABTA in 1950 and we remain proud of our ABTA membership and the way ABTA has evolved conveying confidence, reassurance and professionalism to the travelling public of the 21st century.
