Do travel choices for ‘grown up’ solo travellers seem hard to find? Why is it that you see countless tours and cruises advertised for couples and families, but not the solo traveller over 50?
You're a mature solo traveller, and you know what you enjoy when it comes to a holiday. However, maybe feeling that being over 50 and single, you're not feeling so old and not too young, it seems to make it harder to find a solo travel option where you feel you can fit in.
You're not ready for the old fashioned idea of the pensioner set (maybe never), and you've definitely outgrown the Contiki tour option (no such thing as Contiki tours over 50). But, you're still keen to join an escorted holiday for single travellers 50+.
Just as it feels your options are dwindling; friends not up for the same travel plans you have in mind, or posses the same passion? Or your circle of single friends is slim and you’re wondering your options for taking off without a travel buddy? Or quite simply, you know you want to go alone.
Wherever you are at with your travel plans, you definitely made some inroads as you got this far and you found us – Wow, a travel company for solo travellers over 50, perhaps is what you’re thinking.
We’ll, here, you fit right in! Because, we only look after solo travellers. We think travel experiences should be shared, one is not enough, two’s a crowd and then the more the merrier.
There's a stack of other solo travellers in their fifties, sixties and some young at heart travellers in their seventies too.
Nice change to the other mainstream packages out there – ads loaded with images of the perfect couple touring Europe, or soaking up romantic moments at a tropical resort, and so on and so on…. tragically failing to show single travellers in the picture.
And even better, we focus on keeping the single supplement as low as possible. All our tours offer the package with your own room, and all with low single supplements, and even sometimes no single supplement!
FIND YOUR TRAVEL STYLE
Not all solo travellers are the same, and that’s why we’ve created 6 travel styles to pick from in our line up of singles holidays
Most of our tours are created for single travellers 50 years and over, and there’s others such as solo tours for over 40's. And our Cruise Circle for Solos cruise groups are best suited to cruise fans 40 years and over. Our age-matched solo traveller groups have a proven track record, and you can read the countless testimonials from your fellow solo traveller.
After checking our our trips, and browsing over our site you'll start to get an idea of your travel style and which trip is a great fit for you.
But there's more to it than just picking the trip. It's the feeling you get when you're making plans to travel your own and maybe hesitating because you're not sure about who else is joining.
Well, what we can say with all of our years of our experience, since our beginning in 2006, we've learnt one sure thing. When you come along with a smile, looking forward to your trip and just wanting to make every moment count, so do all our travellers - just like you.
Over 50's Travel is a freedom like no other - a release from every day life, an excitement about new encounters, and we know, and our travellers that have gone before you tell us - it will be all of this and more. Expect lots of laughs, sharing your travel memories, and often, new friendships that last past the days of your tour.
What's more refreshing, and perhaps unexpected is the comradery. It is so quickly formed with our solo travel tour groups. We even have travellers that return and make plans to join us again on another tour together, because of amazing friendships formed on other trips with us.
As a small group touring company there's a shared intimacy that perhaps can't be found or harder to find on large group arrangements. Shared meals where everyone mixes and mingles, pre dinner and post dinner 'get togethers'. The laughs can start from breakfast and not end until you rest your head on your pillow, before looking forward to your next day's adventure.
The Great Ocean Walk holiday was a great introduction to singles tours and walking holidays. ... a small group with people of a similar age enabled everyone to get to know each other....Janene, 44 years, Newcastle, NSW
