Alfa brings back David Urquhart Travel
David Urquhart Travel is joining the employee owned Alfa Leisureplex Group, whose other brands include Alfa Travel and Leisureplex Hotels.
David Urquhart Travel began winding coach operations down after 37 years of providing coach holidays in May, with the affects of the coronavirus a major factor behind the decision.
Emma Russell, Managing Director of Alfa Leisureplex Group, said: “We are delighted to be bringing this iconic name back and to be able to welcome some of the former team back as employee owners. David Urquhart Travel fits perfectly into our expansion plan, as the heartlands of David Urquhart Travel are areas where Alfa Travel does not currently pick up. We have been welcoming David Urquhart customers to our Leisureplex hotels for many years, so we know that the David Urquhart Travel customers enjoy our Leisureplex Hotels, where our fantastic employee owners go that extra mile to make memories for our guests.”
Former Contracting and Operations Manager at David Urquhart Travel, Clare McFadden, is to lead the team as Operations Manager, based in East Kilbride. Clare has 20 years’ knowledge of the David Urquhart brand.
