A NEW travel agent is opening in West Swindon on Monday and will be staffed by former Thomas Cook employes.

Hays Travel bought Thomas Cook out of liquidation after the travel agent suddenly ceased trading earlier this month.

The new Hays Travel branch will be part of Asda Shopping Centre and employ Charlotte Parcel, Emma Woolford, Lisa Knight and Donna Lewis.

Charlotte said: "The same great people delivering amazing service to our customers under a new name.

"Please pop in and say hello to the team, we can’t wait to see you.

"Spread the word far and wide, we’re back on the high street."
