Senior Travel Clubs

Travelling alone has its advantages. But, let’s face it, it can get lonely. If you are a solo traveller looking for a travel companion, there are lots of resources available for travellers who are young at heart but can’t convince anyone to come with them on the trip of a lifetime.

If this sounds like you, there are many solutions. You could find a small tour group, as lots of companies happily accept singles (although some do ask for a surcharge) or pair you up with another single in the group to cut costs. If tours are not your style, but you don’t want to travel alone, consider joining a travel club or look online for a travel buddy on a site like Thelma & Louis or Travbuddy. You can also search on the forums at Lonely Planet or Trip Advisor to find like-minded souls.

Make sure you’re clear about what kind of person you are looking for and want kind of trip you are embarking on to make sure you find a good fit.


Travel Insurance for over-60s

If you’re planning a trip away, it’s good sense to think about travel insurance. While travel insurance for seniors is usually more expensive than it is for younger people, you can still find a good policy if you shop around.

What cover is available to you will depend on a few factors. Your age, overall health and the destination of your holiday will have an impact on the price and availability of travel insurance. If you’re aged between 60 and 69, you have more options when to comes to travel insurance, as some providers will not offer cover for those 70 and over. A few providers offer travel insurance for anyone younger than 101!

You will find more options if you look for cover for a one-time trip. Annual and multi-trip insurance is less accessible to seniors, but some providers do offer it. Compare seniors’ travel insurance to make sure you get the best value policy for your money.
