Holidays For Over 50s Couple UK

couple main image 1

From a romantic city break to an adventure made for two, or perhaps a special occasion, the options to explore the world together are endless.

Choose where you want to go, how you want to travel and how long for, all on your own terms. Now is the time to create experiences of a lifetime. We can tailor-make your next holiday with your loved one exactly as you’d like it.

Looking to take off together?

Look no further. Here at Silver Travel Advisor we understand there are many reasons why over 50s couples seek out a holiday together.

Perhaps the children have finally ‘flown the nest’ and so a newfound freedom is calling. Is there’s a special occasion on the horizon which should be celebrated in style?

Or the time has come to tick off some bucket list travel experiences. Whatever the reason, there’s a holiday ready and waiting.


A relaxed beach break may be the perfect tonic to rediscover your relationship, or you might decide to experience some magical moments together – an African safari or an Australian adventure.

Anything is possible.

“We tend to take a small villa or an apartment on a Greek island. Corfu is a favourite. We eat in or out, potter and read by the pool and look for obscure historical buildings. We usually hire a car to get out exploring.”

Your holiday, your choice


One of our favourite combinations for a couples holiday is a beach and city break - you can explore more or simply take a break from the midday sun! Our favourites include Dubai, Cape Town, Lisbon and, of course, Palma.


It's true what they say - there is a cruise for everyone! And whilst some cruise lines are geared towards families there are some that lean more towards couples. We'd look out for Viking, Silversea, Holland America Line and Celebrity Cruises. With most river cruises appealing to couples or solos.


Increasingly we're seeing more luxury adult only hotels appear. From small boutique hotels to hideaways both in Europe and further afield, when it’s a well earned break for just the two of you, an exclusive adults-only luxury escape is close to perfection.

All inclusive

Whilst we like to get out and about and sample local food, drink and culture, there are some destinations where all inclusive would be our first choice, not least a destination such as the Maldives. If you're a fan of all inclusive 'land' holidays with no added extras then why not consider cruising for a change?


One of the most stress-free modes of travel - perfect for any couple. Popular iconic rail trips include the Rocky Mountaineer, The Orient Express and the fabled Belmond Eastern Oriental - step back in time and enjoy quality time together, experiencing what is now commonly referred to as 'slow travel'.


Drive, cycle, walk or simply sit back and relax on a coach. Touring is one of the favourite holiday pastimes for Silver Travellers. Quoting Eleanor Roosevelt - "the purpose of life is to live it, to taste it, to experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience".


Warning - safari holidays can become addictive. Our planet is precious and the Silver Travel team can advise and recommend destinations, camps and tours that tread lightly on the environment whilst offering maximum wildlife encounters.

Accessible travel

We at Silver Travel Advisor are delighted to partner with several holiday companies and cruise lines that cater to the needs of mature travellers with accessibility needs, so you can travel without boundaries.

Activity & Adventure

As the saying goes, 'those who play together, stay together!'. Shared interests from hiking to skiing, golfing to wine appreciation, it's all about experiential travel. From a current hobby to a once in a lifetime experience you're looking for we partner with several companies offering a wide range of activity and adventure holidays.
