Travel Companion

I would like to meet people for travelling companions. I am female but either sex would suit if they are 65 plus and lively with a good sense of humour.

Hi All !
I'm a traveler looking for traveler buddies. I live in the U.S. I want to travel to Europe-anywhere in Europe. My parents are European and have been a few times. I can meet others who want to travel around the continent but live in Europe as well. I'm independent and curious about other cultures. Very easy-going and really enjoy meeting other like-minded travelers. I'm over 50 so someone in my age group would be great.

Would you like to correspond a little to see if we would be suitable travelling companions?

Тhis is an interesting idea. I see that it is still relevant.
I am also alone (woman, 57) and I need people to share trips, vacations, shopping, concerts and even walks in the park.
It would be good to make a group in which to have lunch together or discuss the new travel.
I live in the Southeast London.
I will be happy to share my free time with friends

i am semi retired i now only work 3 days week my job is a Maintenance site manager,which keeps me very fit as i work indoors and out .
i lost my wife Angie a few years ago ,i have two grown up children Ben Katie and now they have they own lives-- boyfriends and girlfriends-- so now they don't want to go on Holiday with dad anymore also i like to go walking in the countryside and this is far to boring for my kids .i do love going for walks, and go on Holiday but i do fine it lonely sometimes ,and i have been used to company.
and when i am on walks i see some Beautiful sights but nobody to share the experience with. it would be such a joy to have some good company who shares the same things as i .i am 58 year,s old and very fit for my age ,must have been the kids keeping me fit and the dog walking also my job is very active 3 day a week job ,only a few weeks ago i moved by shovel and hand barrow 3 ton of gravel in the rain and cold,,must admit my legs did ache a bit the next day ,but lots of walking in the country side keeps you fit and active . so if anybody male or female would like to get in touch and make friends and get to know each other first , and maybe we could meet up some time in the future for some good walks and some friendly chat . that would be good !!! life is too short to be siting around and letting life pass you by we are not getting any younger and need to enjoy simple things in life . lets get out and see the world ,because i don't to spend my time been lonely at home . if any one is interested please feel free to make contact ,lets chat and make friends and and hopefully they will be some good company and friendship and share some lovey walking days out .!!!!!!

I'm in a similar situation but can only walk a couple of miles or so without resting due to health problems. I'm looking for someone to share a cabin on cruises without enough single cabins. I'm fed up with paying an 80% premium for single occupancy of a double cabin. I'm currently thinking of the Caribbean in October 17 with P&O or Royal Caribbean. I live in Oxfordshire but am willing to travel a reasonable distance to meet up beforehand. If there are group members in Oxfordshire wanting to form a group to source travel companions, theatre companions or whatever please get in touch

Hello and thank you all. Reference to my previous post enquiring about any interest in a coach holiday
to Estartit in June 2021. Subject to this trip going ahead, I am fortunate to have now found a suitable travel partner for this trip.

Hi all, even though I've joined quite a few different sites in order to find holiday companion it seems to be of no avail 🙁

Am seeking to hire a villa (must boast private pool) end of September for a week/10 days. Travelling from Birmingham. Been looking at Paphos or happy to book anywhere to escape from this Godforsaken Blighty weather! Even perhaps Costa Del Sol. Am flexible where to go as long as it's hot!

Any takers?

I am interested in meeting other female companions for holidays abroad if this is what you had in mind. I am hoping to go away either May/June or September - when it is little more peaceful and most of the kids are back in school. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Mal. would you be interested in renting villa with private pool for a week end of September?

I'm nearly 65 and have tried to arrange holiday companions on silver surfers previously .The people interested come from all over the UK which makes it difficult to get anything arranged.Plus people are looking for different types of holidays.However if we could get some regional groups going that would be a start. I live in South West Scotland.
