Co-operative Travel reopens its branch in Arnold


Arnold’s branch of Co-operative Travel reopened its doors in the High Street this week ready for the post-Christmas peak holiday booking season.

Five branches across the county have reopened this month following the end of the second national lockdown.

The experienced travel consultants are ready and waiting to help holidaymakers plan their breaks for 2021 and beyond, when the post-Christmas, peak holiday booking season begins. Many Brits had their 2020 holiday plans thwarted by Covid-19 and Co-operative Travel is seeing growing demand from Nottinghamshire customers for “dream holidays”. 

The effects of the pandemic on the travel industry has also created opportunities for customers to snap up luxury holidays to the Caribbean, Mauritius and the Maldives for record value prices.  

Natalie Turner, head of branches for Co-operative Travel said: “Once Christmas is over, thoughts typically turn to holidays, and we’re delighted that all our branches across Nottinghamshire will be open to welcome customers safely, and help them plan their well-earned getaway.

“We’re already seeing an upturn in holiday bookings, particularly for departures from May 2021 onwards, which we’re attributing to the fantastic progress being made on the Covid-19 vaccine, the opening of further travel corridors to some of our favourite long-haul destinations, and the positive developments on the “test to release” quarantine system, all of which have boosted consumer confidence to travel.

“We’re seeing growing demand for holidays to long-haul “dream” destinations such as the Maldives and the Caribbean, and a desire for secluded, socially distanced luxury. Many of our customers missed out on their annual getaway in 2020 and, as a result, are eager to book something extra special for 2021. 

In addition to the branches, Co-operative Travel’s virtual call centre is open every Monday – Saturday, handling enquiries and bookings by email (, phone (01922 908 389) and via social media ( 

Co-operative Travel has 78 branches across the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Gloucestershire,  Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Somerset, Wiltshire and Rutland.
