Why we’re special.
50 Plus Travel Limited ™ is a New Zealand based company established in 2006 by founding director Anna Jones. Our company specialises in fully escorted, all-inclusive tours for the 50 plus age group, with an aim of bringing together like-minded people and giving them the chance to explore the world without any troubles and in good company.
Founding director Anna is a passionate traveller who loves exploring new places and learning about their different cultures, history and traditions all while meeting new people.
Having travelled around the world over the last ten years, all on her own, she has gained invaluable experience, knowledge and know-how while exploring a huge range of countries.
You have the chance to travel with Anna to numerous destinations including Russia, Ukraine, Canada, Alaska, China, Tibet and Vietnam. And don’t be surprised to find yourself in Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Berlin, Munich, Dresden, London, Paris and many other cities in Europe!
Anna’s main specialty is the Russian and Ukrainian tours as she is a fluent speaker in both Russian and Ukrainian. This gives you the advantage of a unique insight into the locals' life that no other group travel would be able to offer you. You will see real life and real people. Anna knows from experience that it’s only in comparison with others that we can appreciate how lucky we are in New Zealand.

At 50 Plus Travel ™ we value the fun, laughter, humour and rewards that develop from a successful atmosphere within a tour group. This is why we always work hard to keep our group numbers low. The maximum group number for all of our tours will be limited to 15 people per tour.
While our main objective is to provide you with memorable travel experiences that will enhance your everyday life we are also committed to seeing you enjoy your holiday and ensuring that you are getting value for your money.
So don’t leave it till it's too late!

"Anna Jones is a good friend and was a trusted colleague for 20 years. We both worked for Consumers’ Institute – she as financial controller and I as chief executive. Anna has an excellent background in business management which will fit well with her new enterprise. Of equal significance is the way Anna relates to a wide range of people. Her outgoing personality and practical business sense will be a fine mix for her new tourism venture. I wish her every success."
