You might be wondering after reading all of this, what do the 22 people who work at Starts at 60 really do, so I wanted to give you a snapshot of that too.

Our Starts at 60 media team does two things: 

  • Frankly, they’re incredible at identifying important issues about pre-retirement and retirement that plenty of older Australians need a little bit of help navigating, so they preparing expert articles, supportive tools and digital masterclasses to provide you with the need-to-know info. We work with trustworthy brands to do this, but we only talk about real problems and quality solutions and err to the side of trust and safety for our members.  
  • Our Starts at 60 media team are also the most up-to-date source of news and insight for over-60s-relevant news, features, lifestyle hints and tips, great recipes and much more. 

Our Travel at 60 team do three big things:

  • We bring together a big selection of Starts at 60 Community holidays to all the places in Australia you’d love to go. During Covid-19, with international travel off the menu, this part of our operation grew rapidly, and we’ve now got more than 60 departures planned for 2021, many of which are selling very fast! 
  • We run a full-service travel agency from our head office in Brisbane, and can book holidays in Australia and throughout the world. We have relationships with all of the leading travel operators and can help you plan that dream holiday, near or far away
  • We recently launched a full online travel booking capability, so you can book your flights, hotels and cruises completely online if you choose, knowing that we’re always at the end of the phone here in Brisbane should you need us. 

The Starts at 60 Marketplace is a new addition to Starts at 60 and it does two important things:

We constantly update our ecommerce marketplace, that will only get better and better with time and as the number of shoppers keep growing. We work with exciting vendors, ranging from beloved Australian names such as Maggie Beer to boutique retailers of products you’d never have discovered otherwise, to bring you items designed to improvise your life in some way: fashion, healthy ageing products, vitamins and supplements, skincare and beauty, gorgeous Christmas gift ideas, retirement-related books and so much more. 

And Insuranceat60.com speaks for itself.  We’ve started with a terrific car insurance option and we’re just about to launch a range of home and contents insurance, so watch this space or pop on over to insuranceat60.com to find out more.
