The UK’s biggest tour operator Tui is to close 166 high street stores in the UK and the Republic of Ireland.
It is not yet known how many of the company’s 26 Scottish stores will be affected by the news.
The holiday firm said the decision was made following changes in customer behaviour.
Around 350 of the current 516 retail stores will remain following the closures.
Andrew Flintham, managing director of Tui UK and Ireland, said: “We want to be in the best position to provide excellent customer service, whether it’s in a high street store, over the telephone or online, and will continue to put the customer at the heart of what we do.
“It is therefore imperative that we make these difficult cost decisions, look after our colleagues during such unprecedented uncertainty and also offer a modern customer service.”
