Rise of the Retro-Raver

Forget 18-30’s holidays, the new age group heading to top clubbing destinations is the over 40’s!

Party holidays for the over 40s are on the rise. According to a recent survey, travel companies are seeing a 38% increase in what has been deemed, the rise of the “retro raver”. The usual clubbing hotspots; Ibiza, Magaluf and Ayia Napa are becoming a popular choice for the older traveller wanting to relive their youth.

But it would appear that this older generation aren’t happy to slum it in budget accommodation when travelling to these clubbing destinations; higher standards and perhaps a healthier income mean that over 40’s want to party in style.

Ibiza is leading the way with its new luxury Hard Rock Hotel – the first in Europe, opening two years after the exclusive party hotel Ushuaia opened in Playa D’en Bossa, attracting celebrities from around the world.

Holidaymakers first started flocking to Ibiza for its clubs more than 25 years ago, so it’s the perfect time for older generations to return to their favourite haunts and relive their partying days… and why not?

So you have a mortgage… even a kid or two… but this doesn’t mean you have to give up clubbing!
