April marks the biggest pensions reform in over a century, and with this comes a whole host of opportunities for those over 55 years of age.

Luxury tailor-made tour operator, Carrier, predicts that many will take advantage of the greater power over how they spend their money by booking a once-in-a-lifetime holiday experience.

Carrier’s exclusive, online collection features a select number of holiday ideas with four specific sub-collections, directing customers to the type of destination or hotel that may be suitable for them, including Once in a Lifetime, Grandkid Getaways, Honeymoon Recollection and Mind, Body & Soul.

From far-flung destinations to unique adventures, Carrier’s Once in a Lifetime recommendations span all corners of the globe and are the making of bucket-list musings. Whether discovering the Himalayas’ last remaining kingdom, taking a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef or embarking on the safari of a lifetime to spot the Big Five, Carrier has it covered. Grandkid Getaways taps into the increasing trend toward multi-generational holidays. With grandparents enjoying more active, longer and fuller retirements, top of the list are often holidays for the extended family. Carrier’s top picks include luxury resorts in idyllic locations offering fantastic kids’ clubs for children of all ages, family-friendly eateries and plenty to keep the biggest kids of all fulfilled, with golf courses, spa treatments and pristine beaches aplenty.

For those whose children have flown the nest and again have time to spend as a couple, the Honeymoon Recollection features destinations that will rekindle the romance and make you feel like newly-weds all over again, including city breaks, private island retreats and cosy Alpine escapes. Carrier knows that health and wellbeing is also much valued to this age group and the Mind, Body & Soul collection perfectly blends the zealous and Zen with exhilarating and enlightening escapes for those who now have the time and space to refocus on themselves.
