Looking at my regular dose of the
( an interesting little travel industry focused enewsletter) I noticed their lead article on over 50s Saga cruises:
Under the Single Equality Act, companies are banned from discriminating on the grounds of age in the provision of goods and services.
This means that companies cannot specify that a holiday is only available for over 50s or I guess for 18-30s only. I wonder how many other companies will be impacted by this government legislation?
Personally I think it makes tours far more interesting to have a good mix of people from all ages, backgrounds and even countries. Its been one of the minor highlights of my Explore experiences having people from Australia, Canada, the US and from 6 years to 70 years (depending on the type of tour of course)!
However, I would be very interested to know what you think?
