(Last updated: Tuesday 7th December 2021)
Alsager U3A has restarted 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, you are asked to come into Civic on a Monday morning between 9.30am – 12 noon and register for your chosen trip(s) at the Travel Desk, and pay a non-refundable deposit of £10 per trip. If you wish you can pay the full amount(s) on that day.
If a trip reaches its capacity then a waiting list will be kept, and members on that list will be informed if spaces become available.
If you wish to book for a holiday, you are asked to come into Civic on a Monday morning between 9.30am – 12noon and book your place at the Travel Desk by paying an initial deposit completing a booking form supplied by the company providing the holiday.
It is important to note that this new system of booking will NOT require queuing on a Monday morning to be sure of getting on a list.
Health and safety on coach journeys
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.
