About Us

Doug Murdoch founded Murdoch Travel in 1989 and soon after we became Barrie's favourite and most reliable travel agency. After more than 20 years of successful vacations, Doug began mentoring Jeff to take over the business at his retirement. Sadly, Doug passed away in June of 2016. Jeff successfully ran the day-to-day operation of Murdoch Travel until he purchased it from the family estate in February 2017. For more information about our change of ownership, please read our FAQs.
