Grand UK has been operating holidays for mature people for nearly a quarter of a century and with over 65,000 customers travelling each year, they have a wealth of experience taking care of passengers. Grand UK is a privately owned specialist company whose aim is to ensure that you get the very best from your well-earned holiday. Through their holiday programme , they offer a great way to discover new places providing great opportunities to meet new people.
Escorted Holidays are designed exclusively for the over 55s with a range of coach tours, ocean and river cruises, holidays by air, train holidays and self-drive breaks throughout the UK and beyond. Most of the holidays include a free courtesy travel service at the beginning and end of your holiday from hundreds of locations throughout southern and central England. There is also an opportunity for you to join at an Interchange area or directly at your holiday destination, for which you'll qualify for a discount of £25 per person. Once at your chosen local departure point, you will not have to worry about heavy suitcases as Grand UK will take care of that for you so that the next time you'll see of your luggage, is in your hotel bedroom!
Single people are very welcome on all their holidays, and they do not charge any additional supplements for single rooms on British mainland holidays. Special singles-only holidays are also offered which are perfect for making new friends combined with discovering new destinations.
Grand UK Holidays are a popular choice for those looking for a break with like-minded individuals as they specialise in escorted tours that are specifically for the Over 55's. They are also popular for using their own hotels for the majority of their holidays providing their customers with a particular standard of accommodation. For that added bit of luxury, the Grand UK Gold Holidays are also a favourite. Single travellers choose to travel with Grand UK Holidays as there are no single room supplements added to the booking.
Unless otherwise stated, Grand UK Holidays will use Executive Coaches that will have toilet facilities on-board in addition to comfortable reclining seats. Although on some occasions, different coaches may need to be used (particularly on feeder services) this will mean that these facilities may not necessarily be available but adequate comfort stops will be made en-route. Some of the holidays will have the option to upgrade to the Grand UK Gold Service providing extra legroom, luxury leather reclining seats, panoramic windows, welcome pack, on-board library selection, WC/Washroom and individual controlled air-conditioning.
