The website for Over 40 and Over 50 Travel Inspiration

If you are interested in Over 40 Travel or even Over 50 Travel ideas, then you have landed at the right site. Travel Begins at 40 was established by travel writer Mark Bibby Jackson and web developer Joe Ogden in 2017. It is the only travel site to feature the best travel writing aimed at the 40+ and 50+ traveller. Our aim is to inspire you to travel responsibly and imaginatively. As we are not tied to any travel agency or tour operator we will not push unwanted tours upon you – although you can flick through our latest offers section if you wish – instead you will discover our own experiences and opinions, backed up by the latest travel news, events and festivals from around the globe. Whether it’s a homestay in the Cambodian jungle, trekking in Tajikistan, a naturalist hotel in Costa Rica, or urban camping in Stockholm, you will find it in our pages. It’s never too late to start something new. Let your journey begin here!
