How about a fabulous Senior excursion to France? Taking a trip to France is a fantastic holiday option, especially for over 50s who love good times, good food, and adventure! France is only a short distance away from the UK, so why not take in both on the same trip? France offers all visitors a completely different culture, filled with exquisite cuisine and some of the world’s greatest wines.
A Senior Excursion to France
A flight to France can be very inexpensive thanks to low-cost airlines, and if you are in the United Kingdom, you are only a few hours from Paris or Nice. This makes it an ideal destination from England for senior travelers who don’t want to spend too long on an aeroplane. You can even get there by train if you prefer.
If you are thinking of booking a getaway to France, here are three tips that everyone over 50 should consider before departing.
Research Online, Get Some Ideas from Fellow Travellers
France is a big and beautiful country, and there are many different types of excursions to be had in this vast and varied country. Sand beaches are everywhere, as France has thousands of miles of coastline, with beaches on the Mediterranean Sea in the South and on the Atlantic Ocean in the West.
There are the wine vineyards all across the country, but the Champagne and Cognac regions offer something decadent and exclusive with the world’s best sparkling wine and brandy available straight from the source.
Be sure to check online for travel guides and online communities that can offer you first-hand experiences of travelling as a senior in France, and can offer you invaluable information and ideas to make your trip unique and memorable.
Get the Right Travel Insurance for You
If you are over 50, it is important to make sure your travel insurance offers you a high level of coverage for medical bills, as there can be extra medical costs in our elderly years, especially when treating an injury. If you are looking for insurance when travelling over 50, consider going with a company like Staysure, as they offer a policy specifically for this age range, and pre-existing conditions are also considered.
It is also important that the policy will give you the support you need in the event of flight cancellations or delays at an airport. Thousands of people every year find themselves having to sleep at an airport, sometimes staying in airport lounges for a day or more, because they had inadequate insurance policies. Having coverage that provides you with accommodation in the event of delays can ensure that you remain comfortable and cared for if your trip gets unexpectedly extended.
Shop Around, You Can Save Money Online
Low-cost flights and hotel rooms are an extremely competitive market right now. It is possible to make huge savings on an excursion by finding the right deals online and building your own holiday package. By sourcing your own flights and accommodation, it is possible to save hundreds of pounds compared to similar packaged holidays available from travel agents.
New accommodation rental services such as AirBnB can offer even greater savings, and give holiday makers a fantastic place to stay and more caring and personal service from their host than they may get from a chain hotel or small bed and breakfast.
If you are planning a senior excursion to France, you could save a lot of money by finding the right deals online. Packaged excursions are convenient, but are often drastically over-priced. If you spend a little time online, you can book your own flights, hotels, transfers and find your own travel insurance to save yourself hundreds of pounds. You could invest the money you save in a few extra days at one of the world’s most beautiful holiday destinations, and extend your stay in France.
