Wendover Buckinghamshire

Travel Team

Please scroll down on this page to see all the Visit Dates.

Day trips and holidays run by our Travel Team volunteers are for the enjoyment and education of our members. A varied programme is planned during the year. They are usually booked well in advance (holidays up to one year) and we give approximately three months’ notice of a day trip.

Suggestions for future venues are always welcome; please contact a member of the Travel Team (see below).

Day trips are usually by coach with varying journey times (on average 90 minutes). Payment is either by card or cheque to Wendover u3a. A receipt is given with full joining instructions (mostly within Wendover or Bedgrove) and an itinerary.

We seek competitive prices for our travel and arrange for group reductions at venues. Any discount is shared between the group for the day/trip holiday and no personal discount is received by any member of the Travel Team.

Our day trips/holidays are open to all Wendover u3a members and priority is given to them before any member of a different u3a or non-member. Initially a non-member would be added to a waiting list.

Please give your full name, address and membership number (if applicable) in all emails.

Two things to note:
• Bookings can only be taken electronically after the main meeting launch:
• After the electronic booking form/receipt has been dispatched by the Travel Team your place will be reserved for 7 days (for the receipt of your cheque).
