If you're travelling abroad and happen to be over the age of 80, or if you're sending a loved one on the trip of a lifetime, you might find that it's best for you to avoid tiring, long-haul flights. While there are plenty of escorted holiday destinations across the channel and to the East, it might be best to stay a little closer to home. Whatever you decide, keeping your holiday covered with senior travel insurance is a good idea for any trips away with your friends and family.

Top 5 holiday destinations for the over 80s

Torquay:

This town on Devon's seafront is one of the best places to simply watch the world go by. Not only is it encompassed by the soothing sounds of the ocean, but it also has a uniquely European feel to its harbour that's dotted with white-washed buildings and dark green trees.

Whitby:

If crossing the ocean puts too much strain on a holiday away, then the UK has tonnes of beautiful cities and towns to explore. This seaside town in Yorkshire not only has some beautiful stretches of coastline, but also a cosy, welcoming atmosphere that's filled with friendly locals.

Italy:

There are many providers who provide coastal resort holidays here that are also escorted for those who are less able. You can enjoy the sights and sounds of the Italian Riviera or their café-culture cities. You can find many >coach tour operators that will take you through this beautiful country.
