Your Travel Team


l to r: Ginny Whitehead, Neil Parkin, Chris Whitehead, Graham Cromack. Front: Christine Parkin, Liz Jones

Our aim is to provide our membership with a wide choice of trips, from days out to nights away and occasional overseas travel. We arrange value for money trips to suit all pockets within the limitation of minimum numbers required to make a trip viable. As well as being friendly and fun, we endeavor to make our trips educational/cultural in line with the U3A ethos of continued learning and sharing experiences.

Each year we offer three or four day trips, mostly including lunch, a couple of overnighters, a theatre/exhibition trip or two and a Christmas break.

Our plans for 2020 have been severely curtailed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. All trips have been cancelled for the rest of the year with the exception of our Christmas trip to Ibiza, which we will keep under review.

CHRISTMAS IN IBIZA

23 December 2020


Departing on 23 December 2020 and returning on 27 December 2020

We’ll be staying half board at the four star HOTEL SIMBAD in Talamanca Bay, just three kilometres from Ibiza Port. The hotel sits right on the beach and all our rooms have terraces overlooking the turquoise waters of the bay. We are unable to secure an all inclusive deal, but wine and water is included with dinner. On Christmas Day, we’ll have carols and cava on the beach followed by a Gala Christmas Lunch.

With your own transport, you’re free to explore the island and visit the many beautiful coves (South Pacific was filmed in Es Vedra), Las Dalias, the famous ‘hippy’ Christmas market in Los Carlos, and the lovely old town of Eivissa - which is a World Heritage Site. It also has a Christmas market with craft and food stalls.

All rooms have a balcony overlooking the bay
Double room - €465pp
Triple room - €360pp
Single room supplement €154. I’m sorry about the supplement, but hotels always load single rooms in Spain.

The above costs include foot passage on the ferry. Transport will be provided from the ferry to the hotel and return.

Ferry cost per car (not per person) is €90

There is an optional insurance available for €19pp to cover you for Coronavirus.

We will ask for a €100pp deposit before 1 October and full payment by 1 November.
