This group is for those who enjoy travelling but may not have a travel partner or prefer to travel in groups, particularly suited to those who like to keep costs down! Whether you want to join in a break which has been listed, or have seen a deal you'd like other members to know about, I hope that this group will increase opportunities to enjoy breaks, both in the UK and abroad.
This group is not aimed solely at single people, although it is single people who tend to be looking for travel companions, and IS NOT here to facilitate dating opportunities or hook-ups (although I am not naïve enough to believe that that won't happen, on occasion); couples are very welcome, as are those who are part of a couple but wish to travel without your partner, for whatever reason. We aim to provide a safe and pressure-free environment for everyone, whatever your personal circumstance.
Please remember, however, that we are not professional tour organisers (personally, I just like to get away as often as possible on bargain breaks) and are not responsible for members, so when travelling, take care of yourself and your possessions and behave responsibly.
There will also be occasional social meetups in and around the three counties, so we have the opportunity to get to know each other before travelling (I also have a Mansfield-based meetup group, Friendships Around Mansfield -meetup.com/FAMILYMansfield - which hosts a wide range of more regular social events) so you're not travelling with strangers.
This group is free to join and we are open to all and any suggestions, so if there is somewhere you'd like to go, let us know; I keep an eye on all Wowcher, Groupon & Travelzoo deals (although many of these are not as good as they seem) as well as finding myself on budget airline sites, finding out when the cheapest flights are available. Although we are happy to post special deals from travel organisers, we do not allow commercial advertising on this site, so please post only details of trips which you are intending to take yourself.
If cheap travel, making new friends (and memories) and experiencing the world is what you enjoy, then welcome aboard and happy travelling!
