For retirees who have waited for their golden years to travel, senior travel groups offer a number of social and financial benefits. Whether you are looking for single, or couple or over 60 travel groups, you can find the perfect opportunity in our local area. Bus tours have been a popular choice for seniors for many years…and especially now that international travel is limited.
Senior Travel Groups
For single or widowed seniors, senior travel clubs offer opportunities to meet others within their age range who hold similar interests. However, travel groups for seniors are much more than a way to meet people. They provide opportunities that cater to a wide range of interests from learning tours to adventure travel and volunteering opportunities.
Senior Group Tours
Many retirees enjoy this type of vacation. It’s ideal for people who love to travel but don’t want to travel alone. They want to meet new people with common interests and have free time during the week. As many retirees are on a fixed income, travel during off-peak time is more economical.
Destinations that accommodate :
Tour Operators for senior tours make sure that everywhere they go can accommodate this demographic. This could include handicapped accessibility, minimal walking and places geared toward this age group. Senior tours often visit historic and cultural destinations and unique places. Consider the historic towns like Cooper Pedy with East Coast Coaches in August or completing as many or as little activities as you wish at the 3 day weekend away at O’Reillys Rainforest Retreat that departs in October.
What’s on the Itinerary:
Typically, the itinerary will include a slower pace so visitors can enjoy the experiences without being rushed to the next thing. They also have local guides join them on the bus to give them background, interesting stories and information about the places they’re visiting.
No stress with everything included
The great benefit to using a Bus tour is you can keep all of your belongings in the one spot. You don’t have to prepare to drive anywhere and all you do is hop on the bus and enjoy meeting new friends and exploring new areas.
