A vision from humble beginnings

Company founder, Toni Brennan, had a vision to break the stereotype of extended tour travel for over 50s and offer immersive experiences. These experiences would need to make a difference in people’s lives and the places and people where they visit.

Armed with her vision, Toni launched Fun Over 50 in August 2002 from a sewing table in her laundry. Not wanting to compete in the budget coach market, and to realise her vision of changing perceptions and travel experiences for over 50s travel, the Gold Class Coach was born.

The coaches were custom made and designed with distinctive features such as leather reclining seats and generous legroom achieved by having fewer seats than a standard full-size coach.

Setting industry benchmarks in luxury coach touring

In 2017, Fun Over 50 took coach touring to a new level of luxury with its Diamond Class coach tours.

Known as “Business Class on Wheels”, Diamond Class offers guests an opulent experience including a red-carpet entry, galley kitchen, WIFI and extra-wide leather reclining seats with lumbar support, footrests and more. Designed in iconic gold and diamond pearlescent colours, the fleet has become a synonymous symbol for the company and luxury coach tours.

What began as a makeshift home office from her sewing table, the company expanded to a full garage and house extension for four full-time staff, eventually leading to the purchase of a 5-acre property to house the expanding coach fleet.
