What we do

Meeting the needs of Silver Travellers

Silver Travel AdvisorsSilver Travel Advisor is a unique travel reviews, information and advice website, especially for mature travellers aged over 50. However we like to feel we do even more than the name suggests, by offering our members and visitors a vast range of relevant and interesting information, discounts through our Silver Travel Club and advice when you ask for personal suggestions from our Travel Advisors, many of whom are retired travel professionals and all of whom have a real passion for travel. Their knowledge and experience spans the globe and adds up to many hundreds of years in the industry.

Each month we offer you the opportunity to join in our free prize draw for seniors holidays in the UK and abroad, as well as frequent light-hearted competitions too. Throughout the year we attend exhibitions and travel shows, so you can meet us for a really in depth discussion. Free tickets to these are frequently available. 

Twice a year we produce The Silver Traveller, a magazine full of articles about locations around the world from travel writers, silver travellers just like you and celebrity contributors, which also highlights our recommended partner companies who provide the best in mature travel and holidays for seniors.

We also produce a range of mini guides, which showcase days out and travel interests for those over 50:

  • Silver Travel ClubGreat British Free Days Out
  • Great British Gardens
  • Great British Breaks
  • Great British Days Out with the Grandchildren
  • Accessible Holidays and Attractions
  • A Guide for the Solo Silver Traveller
  • Holidays for Keeping Active
  • The Silver Travellers' Guide to Gatwick Airport


You can request these by post free of charge, or read them online.
