Beach holidays could be ideal for the over-60s, according to a report
A list featuring the best holiday destinations for people over the age of 60 has been compiled by Ad Features. Focusing on cruise and beach holidays, the list contains recommendations for those who have just begun their retirement and plan to enjoy their spare time by going on a relaxing and hassle-free trip.
Those who wish to visit different places during their holiday and like to be on the move might consider going on a cruise trip, which could take them anywhere from the Mediterranean or Caribbean to South America or Africa. Travellers will have plenty of activities to choose from on board and will also be able to take day trips to popular destinations during their cruise. Holidaymakers booking a cruise trip should remember essentials such as taking out
cruise travel insurance.
Seniors travel insurance is also recommended for older people going on beach holidays, which are proving increasingly popular among travellers in the over-60s age group. Ad Features says the beaches of Portugal, in particular the Algarve, are an ideal getaway for the over-60s, offering both a welcoming atmosphere and picturesque views.
