A lot of members had booked and paid for trips, outings, theatre trips and the April short break before lockdown led to them being cancelled. The Travel Club organisers have been working hard to obtain refunds from the trip hosts and the like and are now able to start making refunds to members. If you believe that you are due a refund and nobody has been in touch with you about it please contact our Treasurer, Lesley Reynolds.

There is a new arrangement for parking at Tesco's when we go on trips. Please make sure you are aware of the rules by speaking to someone on the Travel Desk at Open Meetings before your trip.


Where a trip is shown as full there can sometimes be cancellations. Please ask.

Whilst some details of trips and holidays are given on our website it is usually necessary to attend an Open Meeting to obtain full details and book your place. Our trips and holidays are usually very popular. Bookings are taken from 8.30am at the specified Open Meeting. Unfortunately there can be people left disappointed but we hope you will appreciate that it can be difficult to predict the interest and at the same time cover costs. See link on the right How To Book A Place On A Day Trip for more details.

Please whenever possible pay for trips and holidays by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to BEDFORD U3A TRAVEL CLUB. Cash can only be accepted in exceptional circumstances.

We regret that no refunds are given for cancelled trips except when there is time to resell ticket.

Please give your email address to Teresa if you want to be notified of new theatre trips. There is no obligation but merely an opportunity to book within the short notice that we are usually given.

Here are some details of forthcoming trips and holidays: None at the moment due Coronavirus and Lockdown.
