Benefits & Rewards

Fate changes strangers into friends

Unlike other coach trips, we focus on group interaction. 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.

Feeling good feels great

Meeting new friends becomes harder the older an individual becomes because isolation starts creeping in. Enhancing any type of non-judgemental friendship that inspires wellness and confidence is 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.

Information For Organisations

FOR ORGANISATIONS

If you have working staff that need to feel appreciated, what could be better than planning a day outing. You would be surprised at the long tern benefits of something so simple.

Planned Getaways for senior citizens, those under ‘60s, individuals with carers, and those working as carers.

We design group meetings focused on escaping isolation safely whilst building opportunities for individuals in meeting new people, exchanging life stories and having fun.
