Reviews by the over 50s are few and far between if you take a look at many of the review sites out there.  review starsMr and Mrs 50 Plus have a lot to say about things they buy and places they go.  However,  you wouldn’t know it from the dearth of reviews by the over 50s online.

Reviews, ratings, word-of-mouth recommendations? Most of us like to know what other people think before we buy a product.  Similarly we like to find out what reviewers think before we go and book a hotel or holiday.  Let’s be fair, most of us check it TripAdvisor before we go to stay anywhere!
