AvisWe have a superb trio of prizes this month; a week for two in the Italian Dolomites from Inghams, a three night UK hotel break from Shearings or one week's car hire from Avis, almost anywhere in the world!

To enter the prize draw, please vote for your favourite travel companies and destinations, those which provide excellent service and consideration for the mature traveller, in the 2019 Silver Travel Awards. And you could ask friends and family, aged 50 and over of course, to vote as well. This is your chance to nominate those who deserve to be praised and celebrated. Voting begins on 1 March and ends on 10 May at midnight. Find out more about the 2019 Silver Travel Awards; we’ll announce the winners, chosen by you, on 26 June at an evening event at BAFTA, Piccadilly, London.

InghamsOur Inghams prize is a super week for two to be taken between June and September, flights from the UK included, and most meals too, at the four-diamond Hotel Al Pigher, La Villa, Italy, where the air is gloriously clear and the pace unhurried. This is a small, comfortable hotel, with the emphasis on friendly, personal service. It's in the heart of the Dolomites, so perfect for walking – either gently in the valley or for the fit and energetic, along mountainous hiking trials. It’s perfect terrain for mountain biking too, if that’s your preference. And for a more leisurely day, the local villages are replete with charm and good restaurants, enchanting to wander in. Also included are buffet breakfasts, packed lunches, afternoon tea and cake, and evening meals with complimentary wine for six nights – you’ll be very well fed indeed.

The Charlecote PheasantShearings UK hotels are ideal for those who like an independent break; the prize here is for a three-night stay for two sharing at one of their Bay Hotels, which are located in some of England’s best-loved holiday resorts, with evening entertainment laid on or at a Coast & Country hotel, where there’s a very relaxed atmosphere, set in gorgeous scenery. Stay at Exmouth, Tenby or Strathmore for example and enjoy half board, with breakfast and dinner included. Get away to a super hotel, under your own steam.

A spin on the open road is a wonderful experience and Avis will provide a car for up to seven days as one of our great prizes. Subject to availability, you can pick up your car pretty much anywhere in the world, which really gives you a fabulous choice of roads to cruise on! Imagine touring the highlands of Scotland or the sun-kissed French riviera. Further afield you might explore Puglia or the Californian coast.

    This site is invaluable for travel planning. The answer to any query, question or concern can easily be found and the depth and breadth of contributors knowledge mean that the best information about a forthcoming trip is there.

    My favourite Easter memory is when I was a kid, my Dad used to make us all boiled eggs for Easter Sunday breakfast. We had our own hens so the eggs were super fresh and tasty. He used to put food colouring in the pan with the eggs and they used to come out coloured which I thought was great. Happy days!

    Arranging easter egg hunts for our sons when they were young ... they loved it and so did we. They are grown up now with children of their own and organise Eater Egg hunts for them.

    My husband has just broken his leg skiing in the Dolomites so it would be nice to win the prize and go back to walk there in the summer when he's better!
