Virgin Holidays to open new 'express' concessions in Tesco stores

With each concession measuring 250 square feet, the first two have already opened in Tesco superstores in Dover and Belfast. A further 10 will launch before the end of September with the remainder to open by the end of November. 

Virgin Holidays said the stores have been designed for customers who have already researched their holidays but prefer to make a booking face-to face with a travel consultant. 

Virgin Holidays director of sales and trading Lee Haslett said: "These 'capsule' outlets are for customers who value a one-on-one conversation with our experienced retail staff about options before making a booking.”

The travel operator already operates a number of concessions in Tesco branches around the UK. 

Haslett added: "We share an absolute commitment to the customer, and a desire to create a shopping experience around their needs and lifestyle."
