Alsager U3A is restarting its programme of day trips and holidays. Traditionally, day trips (always by coach) are arranged throughout the year, to various destinations in the UK. Holidays are also organised in the UK and abroad, ranging in length from 3 to 14 nights. Travel excursions are open to ALL members of Alsager U3A.

What's on offer
Forthcoming day trips and holidays will be advertised on the website Travel Page and the Travel Team desk on Monday mornings.

How to book
If you would like to go on a day trip or holiday, you are requested in the first instance to register your interest by sending an email to or by phoning Alan Bell on 01270 878013.

Further details on how to book will follow as soon as possible, and information on that will be available on the Travel page of the website and the Travel Team desk on Monday mornings from 6th September.

It is important to note that there will be a new system of booking which will NOT require queueing on a Monday morning to be sure of getting on a list.

Health and safety on coach journeys

  • The coach will be fully sanitised before departure
  • Your forehead temperature will be checked before boarding – if it's too high, you will be asked not to travel
  • You are recommended to wear a mask on the coach (and inside buildings) – out of consideration to others
  • If you (or close contacts) have Covid-19 symptoms within two weeks before the trip – please inform the Travel team of your decision not to travel

Important note
Day trips and holidays will be organised following current Government guidelines. In addition, each member has a duty of care to their fellow members. If anyone has not been fully vaccinated, we require that a negative lateral flow test is done in the 24 hours before departure. We will TRUST all members abide by this.

At present we are working with Hollinshead Coaches to arrange a 4 night holiday to either Edinburgh or Newcastle in late March 2022.

It has also been suggested by members that a Christmas lunch in Alsager should be organised. This is also being looked at by the Travel team.

More details on both of these will be available on the Travel Team desk and on the website as and when they are available.
