Travel at 60 is the travel marketplace and online travel agency designed to serve over-60s exclusively.  We operate from our headquarters in Brisbane, Australia, packaging holidays that include some of the best deals in the market and bring them to this generation that is reinventing retirement via email each week.  Our travel agents have decades of experience in booking your travel dreams and are waiting for your call. We were started by the team at Starts at 60, Australia’s #1 Media brand for over-60s.

Why do we serve over-60s exclusively?

You are part of a generation that is often overlooked by travel companies, yet you are the only generation with the flexibility to travel in off-peak and shoulder seasons  and at shorter notice, taking advantage of opportunities that pop up to see the bucket list destinations for less. We use your flexibility to get access to better deals knowing you love to travel, and you love a great deal.  

We specialise in cruises, tours, rail journeys and package holidays

We work with almost all of Australia’s largest operators to bring you the best value deals on holidays you really want – cruises, tours, package holidays and rail journeys.  And, we’re building a whole range of exclusive holidays that you won’t be able to get elsewhere.

We have a full-service travel agency team based in Australia

Our full-service Brisbane-based travel agency team is here to help you book any type of trip, six days a week on 1300 414 198.  We’re a fully licensed travel agency.

We’re doing our best to be solo friendly

We try our hardest to have solo travel options available all the time.  Sometimes we negotiate extra-discounts to solo supplements, sometimes we manage to secure solo supplement free options.

Consider a group departure with Travel at 60

We have a selection of tours and cruises departing where you will be a part of a larger group from Travel at 60.  This allows you the comfort and safety of knowing there will be people like you on board if you are travelling solo or looking for some camaraderie.  

We invite you to help us spread the word about Travel at 60 and get all your friends buying their cruises, tours and holidays here, where we really understand the over 60s.   We’ll get better deals if we work together.

Thanks so much for getting on board!

Warmest regards,

Rebecca Wilson

Founder & CEO – Travel at 60 & Starts at 60
