Barrhead Travel Gyle Shopping Centre

Gyle Shopping Centre, 101 Edinburgh Park, Edinburgh EH12 9JY, UK – 0131 338 4730

The sales representative " Chris McCall" represtented Barrhead to an exceptional level whilst booking our summer holiday. Booking a holiday can be quite stressful but his enthusiastic attitude and willing to get every detail correct made the holiday booking process... Actually quite exciting! He allowed us to feel we had time to think about our options and discuss them privately if needed. Regardless of the time he had spent with us, I didn't feel there was any pressure, for us to complete a sale. We did as it was beyond fantastic! Booking the holiday was easy and I felt my partner and I were completely in control in regards to the options available and what our choices were. We weren't influenced inappropriately. The feedback about our chosen destination from Chris, our sales rep, was helpful as he had actually visited himself. I felt reassured it was a pleasant destination by the way he reminisced about his time there as he spoke. Although only one person is serving you, every staff member had a smile on their face and appeared friendly and helpful. We felt Chris McCall was genuinely trying to get the best deal for us, being as close to what we were searching for to get out of our holiday. Just so people know as I only found this out. It's possible to order currency (well Euro's anyway) and they give you it at a "preferential rate". There is also a "pre payment card" available, which if you are interested in those, there are leaflets at the counter of the bureau. In the Barrhead store it's to the far right as you walk in, the Gyle branch. They also provide an option to get your travel insurance through them. Although I didn't get my travel insurance through Barrhead, my partner did and I believe it's a competitive price. The cleanliness of the shop is of a high standard. The staff's willingness and friendly approach is reassuring they will try hard get you the best deal possible. Some travel reps just want a sale. The payment for the holiday is also ATOL protected. The staff are more than happy for you to call/get in touch with any questions you may have, no matter how trivial you think they are. Thank you.

Inland Revenue's Internet service for self assessment. In common with most Government sites it looks as though it was designed by an undertaker. However, once we had gone through the long winded verification process, we did manage to pay our personal tax in minutes without the site crashing which was great.

Sadly the site is still a work in progress if you have a partnership or a trust. Incredibly these organisational forms still require third party software to enter their accounts. Remarkably HMRC seem quite happy with this situation!
