There are no regular meetings of the Travel Group and it is not necessary to be a member of the group in order to access the organised travel.
All travel is open to all Newcastle U3A members.
As each trip is planned it is announced at the following monthly meeting and people are invited to indicate their interest on a sign-up sheet. There follows a cooling off period of 48 hours, after which they will be contacted and asked for a definite decision. The relevant number of places will then be booked. All holidays are booked through a travel agent and everyone is responsible for paying their own deposit and balance to that agent. The group leader will give reminders at the relevant time.
There are usually 2-3 holidays per year, which have proved to be very interesting and great fun! We have a varied programme of travel, such as city breaks in Glasgow, Paris and Dubrovnik, a river cruise in Russia, a visit to historical Turkey and a cruise to the Norwegian Fjords.
