These are some of our more common queries. If you wish to know more or have a specific question please contact us.
Children are welcome. There are things to keep them happy every day, but do bear in mind that The Villages is an adult community, therefore children under the age of 18 are allowed to stay only one month per year. Be aware that with availability of a pool you would need to be especially vigilant with younger children, who must be supervised in the pool area at all times.
There is a regular shuttle bus service operated by The Villages from Orlando International Airport to the Lake Sumter Landing transportation station. The cost is $35 per person*. Onward taxi connections can be booked at the same time for an additional $10* Villages. You may prefer to make arrangements for a taxi or stretched limousine pickup and we could make arrangements for you. Just let us know your arrival date, time and airline.
It goes without saying that appropriate travel insurance is essential. Medical facilities are excellent in the USA but can be expensive so make sure you have sufficient cover for the whole of your trip.
Orlando International is the nearest airport and as a major international hub it is served by many carriers. Shop around for the best prices and don’t forget to check the internet for special offers. If travelling from the UK you will often find a lower fare if you don’t mind a stopover. There are many travel websites where you can search for comparisons on air fares to and from Florida.
