50-plus travellers are becoming more adventurous, according to the Saga survey.
More than one quarter of respondents predict their holiday habits will change in the future and this is most notable amongst 50-59 year olds.
‘As people approach retirement, they can start to think more about how they will spend their free time,’ said Saga Travel’s Louis Myers. ‘Who wouldn’t want to spend that time abroad and seeing the world? With more disposable incomes and a thirst for adventure, taking holidays off the beaten track and experiencing different cultures is an enticing way to enjoy your retirement.
‘We see more over-50s opting for adventures in the Borneo rainforest, or following the Silk Routes in Uzbekistan, rather than taking a week in Eastbourne – as lovely as it is.’
