Checking out holidays for the over 50’s on Newstalk

over 50s, ireland, europe, newstalk

The benefit of being over 50 means you can squeeze extra value from travel at home and abroad. Many empty nesters also see it as a time to spread their wings and take activity holidays that they wouldn’t have thought of before.

The big benefit for older  is the ability to travel out of school term time. One euro spent at off peak can stretch as far four euros during peak season – this goes for flights accommodation and packages.  I’ve found these offers from the Irish Travel Agents Association and they are especially good for those who can travel in spring and autumn

(Many Irish hotels offer special discounts for over 50s so it’s worth bearing this in mind and asking next time you are booking a room in an Irish hotel and I’ve listed some below.)
