Group details

We arrange 3 trips a year within Europe and the UK. So far, we have visited Paris, Amalfi & the Sorrentine Peninsula, Sicily, Holland and Liverpool.

Our aim is to enable Members to go on holiday with other members who enjoy travel.

Although primarily designed for enjoyment, we try to ensure that our tours are interesting & informative, so that Members can learn about the culture & history of the areas which they visit.

The Travel Group operates out of Room 3, Hartley Hall, prior to the Monthly Meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Directions: Hartley Hall, Flower Lane, Mill Hill NW7 2JA.

Doors to Room 3 open at 1.00pm and close at 1.50pm sharp!

Bookings are either taken in Room 3, Hartley Hall, OR by email: travelmhu3a@gmail.com

What trips are available? Flyers, with details of our current holiday offers, are on this website (see link below), and on the Display Boards opposite Room 3 on MHU3A Monthly Meeting days.

Further Information About The Travel Group

We book through a recognised Tour Company, and, in liaison with them, choose a venue, request what we would like to see and where we would like to visit in the area, and then get a brochure printed. Single rooms are always in great demand and we really do strive to get the best allocation we can.

Before booking any Mill Hill U3A Travel trip please read the following:
Mill Hill U3A does not accept any responsibility for your fitness to undertake the trip, itinerary or journey.
By committing to a trip, you are declaring that you are fit and in reasonably good health for travelling, are able to alight from the coach unaided, and are fully aware of the itinerary. You are responsible for your own health and safety throughout the tour.

Insurance
N.B. The MHU3A requires that Members have adequate travel insurance when travelling with the Travel Group, and a copy of their policy must be shown when requested.

Travel insurance is not included in the cost of any Mill Hill U3A Travel trips. Some of the tour companies offer insurance, but it is a member’s own decision as to whether they purchase this or make their own insurance arrangements.

Coach drivers are no longer permitted to assist passengers alighting from the coach or carry passengers’ luggage, other than loading it in and out of the hold of the coach. It is therefore passengers’ responsibility to carry their own travelling-bags and to check that the driver loads them from the pavement into the coach.
If a hotel offers porterage this will be stated clearly in the brochure.

Within reason we can request special dietary needs.

Deposits for the holidays can be paid by cheque, credit card or debit card (not cash) in Room 3, before the Monthly Meetings, or you can print out the booking form from the website, fill it in, scan it and email it to: travelmhu3a@gmail.com

Your Travel Group Volunteer Team consists of Liz Driscoll, Liz Allden, Antoinette Azzopardi, Marilyn Jackson, Jennifer Morris and Simeone Salik.
