WHY JOIN

Feeling good feels great

Meeting new friends becomes harder the older an individual becomes because of two factors. The first being due to many having moved on and the second being that self isolation starts creeping in which for many is a frightening thought.


Enhancing any type of non-judgemental friendship that inspires wellness and confidence an an individual is always going to be seen as a welcome sign.
 Personalities define a generation over any kind of financial success. Passenger ‘name badges’ are provided to everyone. The aim being to help make self introductions between those attending our events easy.

Solo passengers are always encouraged to bringing a companion. From a family member, a friend or even a carer. Journey comfort breaks and a snack box (subject to dietary requests) are provided. ‘Reasonable’ assistance is offered with mobility where necessary.

Fate changes strangers into friends

Unlike other coach trips focused on holidays, this service focuses on social interaction amongst seniors as away of enhancing group camaraderie. There are visual and wellness benefits to being able, in getting out and meeting new people within a shared environment. Our journeys start at Exeter St. Davids.

What We Offer

Planned Getaways for senior citizens, and guests. (Individuals with carers, including those working as carers).

NO MEMBERSHIP COSTS

Devon Coach Trips are based on group meetings focused on allowing seniors and under ‘60s to reconnect with others allowing opportunities for individuals in meeting real people, exchanging life stories and having fun.

THE COST IN JOINING INCLUDES A COMPLEMENTARY SNACK BOX WITH A SOFT DRINK THAT IS PROVIDED ON ALL OUR EVENTS
Please note that ‘Snack Boxes’ are there to provide nutrition rather than any full balanced meal. (However our restaurant event pricing does include the meal cost) 

WHATS NEW
We are currently considering local pick-up points subject to demand. This is because many find a central pick-up point in the heart of Exeter difficult due to local connections. Events range from sightseeing, theatre events to food and drink related staycations. Enjoy also exciting overseas trips within Europe and beyond.
