A TRAVEL company is set to re-open 78 stores - including ones in Street and Frome - from April 12.

The Midcounties Co-operative is opening its travel agency branches under the new name of Your Co-op Travel (formerly Co-operative Travel).

Over time, all the stores will change the signage on their shop fronts to Your Co-op Travel.

Natalie Turner, head of retail for Your Co-op Travel, said: “We’re hugely excited to be re-opening our branches on April 12.

"We can’t wait to welcome customers back into the branches and to be able to offer them that, all-important, face-to-face contact with a travel expert again.”

“It’s a confusing time for holidaymakers, right now and that’s why it’s never been more important to book with an experienced and trusted travel agent.

"For customers’ peace of mind, we are offering flexible payment options, free child places as well as free changes and cancellations, low deposits and cash refunds within 10 days, as part of the Co-op Holidays Promise.”

The new Your Co-op Travel name forms part of a wider Midcounties Co-operative adoption of the Your Co-op branding, which will see all the society’s sub-brands re-named Your Co-op Food, Your Co-op Childcare, Your Co-op Pharmacy, Your Co-op Broadband, Your Co-op Mobile, “Your Co-op Energy, Your Co-op Funeralcare, and Your Co-op Travel.
