What we're about

This group is about sharing our travel stories, tips and experiences. Welcome to discounted group travel!

As we become acquainted, we make travel plans. Based in mid Derbyshire, but you are welcome wherever you live. Membership is free.

Whether you are single or a couple, it's more fun to travel in a group and with people you know! All ages are welcome. We meet regularly and ask for suggestions of destinations group members would like to visit.

The Trips

If you like touring, cruising, adventure, sightseeing holidays, city breaks and activity holidays then this group is for you. You can even be the pilot flying a Boeing 737 Jet in a state-of-the-art simulator on our very popular ‘pilots wanted days’.

It's not just overseas travel. We'll also have days out and weekends in the UK. By traveling together we can access extra group savings to make it more affordable. As a group we can negotiate deals for our members.

How it works

1. Book a trip via our website for any date at OR RSVP to a trip on the MeetUp you like that someone else has chosen and then complete the booking form on our website. If a trip you have found is not with one of our featured tour operators, let me know at

2. I’ll get in touch to discuss your booking and take a deposit

3. If you are travelling solo, we’ll match you with a room-mate of the same gender or you can choose to pay the single supplement where available. Some tours have zero single supplements and a few of the more adventurous trips may not have a single room option.

Is my money safe?

All trips we organise are through a financially protected travel agency with a speciality in touring. If you book anything with us, you pay the travel agency, not into a personal bank account. You will get an individual receipt and written confirmation of the arrangements from the bonded tour operator. If flights are included, you will get an ATOL certificate. Payments are welcome by bank transfer, credit or debit card. We'll always name the operator and your price will be less than if you had booked directly with them yourself.

If you are thinking of making an individual booking direct with any adventure or touring company, we'll give you a discount if you book through us. e.g. Explore, Intrepid, G Adventures, Trek America, Cosmos, Travelsphere, Titan, Riviera Travel, Trafalgar, Insight Vacations, Contiki and many more.

I've worked in travel for over 20 years, so if you are a 'travel addict' like me, you know there's no cure, you just have to give into it!
