Kuoni UK’s third store in Scotland opens next month in Edinburgh.

The outlet, which is in a grade II listed building, has been created by a team of designers with a modern and luxurious feel that the travel group claims looks unlike any other travel shop in the Scottish capital.

The opening of the George Street store on December 1 follows a shop in Glasgow which opened in March and a Kuoni concession in John Lewis Aberdeen, operating since 2013.

The Edinburgh outlet will be staffed by a team of six, who have been hand-picked for their outstanding customer service skills and travel knowledge.

Kuoni UK area sales manager James Kerr said: “Every Kuoni store is individually designed, so customers can expect something quite different.

“The Edinburgh team are passionate about travel and looking forward to sharing their experiences and knowledge with anyone in the area looking to make their next holiday extra special.

“We want to provide the very best service for our customers and create long-standing memories for anyone that walks through the door.”

The store will feature videos, a coffee station, champagne fridge and lounge area. Individual members of the team will be available for appointments for people planning a special occasion or a more complex tailor-made itinerary.
