Launch of

Spreading the Travel Bug

50 Plus Travel announces the launch of

50 Plus Travel Ltd today announced the official launch of
The website was developed to offer active single and couples fully escorted all-inclusive tours to some of the world’s most fascinating and exciting destinations.

50 Plus Travel Limited is a New Zealand based company established last year by founding director Anna Jones. The company seed germinated for 10 years while working at the Consumers’ Institute as a Financial Controller. It sprouted last year and she concentrated on building the business ever since.

Anna Jones understands from experience that travelling alone can be very lonely. Many people have never travelled, are too scared to go alone or haven’t had the time or money to travel until now. 50 Plus Travel gives people the support and security to finally take that trip they’ve always dreamed of. At 50 Plus Travel we ensure that our guests travel with confidence, comfort and in like company.

You have the chance to travel with Anna to numerous destinations including Russia, Ukraine, Canada, Alaska, China, Tibet and Vietnam. And don’t be surprised to find yourself in Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Berlin, Munich, Dresden, London, Paris and many other cities in Europe! “The places I’ve been and the places I love.”

50Plus Travel main specialty is the Russian and Ukrainian tours as Anna is a fluent speaker in both Russian and Ukrainian. This gives people the advantage of a unique insight into the locals' life that no other group travel would be able to offer them. Travellers will see real life and real people.

Director Anna Jones said at 50 Plus Travel we value the fun, laughter, humour and rewards that develop from a successful atmosphere within a tour group. This is why we always work hard to keep our group numbers low. The maximum group number for all of our tours will be limited to 15 people per tour.

“And maybe I’ll pass on to you the travel “bug” I certainly became infected with and tempt you to think about your next destination. There is so much to see, discover and enjoy. It’s never too late to explore - it’s just the beginning”, said Anna

Tours are not rushed and are in depth as only one or two countries are visited for 19 or 21 days. Long haul flights are broken up by stopovers making the trip to and from New Zealand pleasant.

The tours are flexible. Although we all fly together from New Zealand people can join us anywhere along the tour.

"Anna Jones is a good friend and was a trusted colleague for 20 years. We both worked for Consumers’ Institute – she as financial controller and I as chief executive. Anna has an excellent background in business management which will fit well with her new enterprise. Of equal significance is the way Anna relates to a wide range of people. Her outgoing personality and practical business sense will be a fine mix for her new tourism venture. I wish her every success."
