Group details

Activity: we normally arrange 3 or 4 trips a year within the U.K. and Europe. It has been suggested that we hold occasional coffee mornings to discuss future trips and talk about places which members have already visited.

Our aim: is to enable Members to go on holiday with others who enjoy travel and, 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.

Bookings: will be taken by email in chronological order at: Forthcoming trips are advertised in the monthly Newsletter and the Travel Group area of the website, where flyers and brochures with details of our holiday offers can be found

Single occupancy rooms sell out very quickly despite the large supplements. Please consider sharing a twin room (with a friend or relative)*. This will save you the cost of the supplement and also give you a much better chance of getting a place due to the limited number of single rooms available. *Sharers must be U3A members, but not necessarily from the Mill Hill branch.

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:

Fitness: 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 in reasonable health and fit to travel, that you can mount and alight from the coach unaided, that you can carry your own luggage, and that you are fully aware of the itinerary.  You are responsible for your own health and safety throughout the tour.

The Group Leader is just an ordinary member who has volunteered to help, not a paid tour guide, and, like yourselves, is paying the full cost of the trip. Please be aware that it is their holiday too, so do not expect them to spend all their time looking after the group. Obviously, in emergency they will do their best to help.

Insurance. Please be clear that Members are required to have adequate travel insurance when travelling with The MHU3A Travel Group and to provide proof of it when requested.

Travel insurance is not included in the cost of any Mill Hill U3A Travel trip but some of the tour companies offer insurance. It is the responsibility of the individual to decide whether the policy meets their needs and whether to purchase this or make their own insurance arrangements.

Coach drivers are not insured to assist passengers alighting from the coach nor to carry passengers’ luggage, other than loading it in and out 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.

Booking a MHU3A Travel trip is confirmation that you have read, understood, and accepted the above.

Deposits for the holidays can be paid by cheque, credit card or debit card (not cash) Please print out the booking form from the website, fill it in, scan it and email it to: or contact us if you have problems

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