Hello all,

This group was conceived to help provide a forum for lively debate among 50s+ Travellers members. Please post whichever topics of interest you like so long as we all keep in mind the few guidelines mentioned.

Thanks for your participation and interest!

Cheers,

Keith

(back to the original question now)

As an Ambassador for CS I've observed the vast majority of new membership are students. The allure of travel on the cheap anywhere in the world has its value for this demographic group.

Until Seniors around the globe become informed, encouraged, and well catered to by CS outreach methods we may not see much change in the overall average age.

Hello Kieth,
We enjoy the enthusiasm and vitality of youth and welcome them. On the other hand, we look forward to meeting and hosting more mature people. Their life stories and experiences make for many interesting conversations, exchange of ideas and views, which we are always open to accept.
I would like to encourage the Seniors to seek like-minded people, correspond with them, ensure a reasonable level of comfort and..........GO!
I warmly welcome all members of this group to my country and home in India. It may not be as comfortable as your own, but we would love to have you.We could even help you to plan your vacation in such a way that will cushion the stumbles of travel in a new land.
Looking forward to seeing more 50+ travellers in Delhi!
