Touring Holidays to Italy with Saga Holidays

Saga Holidays are for those aged 50 and over (you can travel from 40 if you are with someone who is over 50).

Here are some things to consider when thinking of booking SAGA Holidays;

All holidays generally include VIP transfers from home. This is a small vehicle with up to 3 or sometimes 5 other travellers. They will pick you up from your home address, or that of a friend or family member if you prefer.

Alternatively, you can travel by rail to the airport or have complimentary airport parking if you choose to drive yourself.

The car service is particularly good at the end of the tour. If there are any flight delays or issues it doesn’t matter as your driver will be there to meet you.

SAGA generally uses UK Tour Managers who fly out and back with the group.

Holiday insurance is generally included with SAGA holidays. This can be cheaper than getting your own policy.

The prices of the optional excursions are sent with the final booking information which you will receive two weeks before your departure.
