My uncle (aged 82) would like to go away for a couple of weeks in the winter to Benidorm. Can anyone recommend hotels that might cater for single travellers with some group activities? He goes on organised holidays e.g. Titan, but is looking for a hotel stay but maybe with some days out or people to eat with in the evening.
Many thanks for any suggestions.
Hello, I'm looking for advice on travel insurance companies who offer annual multi-trip cover for over 65s (I'm 67), with more than 45 days cover per trip.
Ideally, I'd like a backpackers or silver surfer type insurance, but at my age, I can't find anything suitable. I only have mild asthma and mild hypertension, both well controlled.
This doesn't seem to be a problem but cover only seems to go up to 45 days. How do people find insurance for a round-the-world cruise, for example? Does anyone have experience?
Hi there. I’m new on here. Any suggestions please for a good company to use for a divorced 50-year-old lady to use for first holiday travelling on her own?
Probably UK based for first outing. Many thanks. 😀
I am 64, female, retiring this summer. Nows the time to do things I've not gotten around to.
I'm a big fan of F1 motor racing, but have never attended a race weekend. Anyone else fancy this, perhaps camping at the course? I have a small campervan.
Has anyone ever just thought - that's it - there's more to life? Packed up, sold up and travelled? I am 52 and bored with my job and life. I just wondered if there were any positive/negative comments from anyone that has taken the risk?
Hello! My name is Erica, and while I'm not a silver surfer as yet, I definitely hope to be one day if my current travel adventures are anything to go by! Both my mother (mid 60s) and I are keen adventure travellers, and I also write a travel blog in my spare time. I work in PR and I am actually looking for over 65s who live life to the fullest on holiday and take part in 'extreme', adventurous, thrill-seeking activities for a campaign I'm working on for a travel client. This campaign will challenge the stereotype of the older generation on holiday. We're looking for individuals (or couples) to form case studies for the campaign. They will need to be prepared to be interviewed in person, with video content sitting onsite. A fee is available for time. If this sounds like you or someone you know on this forum, please comment so I can get in touch! If not, it's been great reading all the comments and adventures being shared on this site - it gives me something to look forward to! Thanks, Erica
Hi, I am looking for some help please ..my daughter lives in America and I travelled last year for the first time to visit her on my own. This year I need to go again for the birth of her baby .. I need to travel beginning of October to Washington .. Is it advisable to book my flight now? Will the cost go up the longer I leave it to book? I am not experienced in this type of thing ..thank you
As a single person, I do like to go places, on a whim with no particular destination in mind. As I browse through the accommodation on offer, as usual, the cost of a room, for a single occupancy always carries a "supplement " which does infuriate me. I use the same bed, shower, use fewer towels, less water, coffee, tea etc, and am usually offered an oversized broom cupboard. As there is a quite large army of single travellers, we should be given a discount, not a supplement, and, I am sure that other singles do as I do, point this out to the owners of such places that they are losing revenue.
Some places have now realised the error of their ways, and do advertise that there is NO supplement for singles, and do reap the benefits, as I do use these places often.
Would like to hear of any places that do not take advantage of us.
