Welcome to Saga Exceptional

The new home of entertaining, insightful and helpful content to make your life better

Hello, and welcome to our site. This is Saga Exceptional, a brand-new space from Saga that’s designed for one thing: to help you live better.

Exceptional is your home for great insights, entertaining articles and helpful advice

We’re building a class-leading website to help you get the most out of your passions. Here you’ll find the most useful, tailored consumer advice for the things you actually need to know about and with a healthy dose of entertaining and inspirational articles too. 

Saga has got over 70 years’ experience of listening to and understanding its customers, and now we’re using that appreciation to put together a website that’s designed for the more discerning and experienced reader – those that demand a higher standard in everything they do. 

Saga Exceptional is not just going to be limited to words – although we’ve assembled a pretty decent team for those – we’re also focusing in on bringing you great imagery, engaging social content, insightful newsletters and beautiful videos – so however you like to spend time on the web, we’ll have you covered. 


What you can expect

Our Life section is something I’m really excited about too – sharing the stories of the amazing readers who are living incredible lives and want to bring that spark to the wider world.

We’ve got tales of deep-sea explorers, marathon runners and stunt drivers – and we keep hearing of more stories we’re incredibly excited to share with you soon. 

When it comes to reviews, the Saga Exceptional team has an abundance of experience in this area – but we want to go further. Whether that’s real-life testing of mats with a group of yoga enthusiasts or getting our engineering team to run an electric toothbrush to the limit in our dedicated testing facility, we want you to be able to trust our results. 

Saga Exceptional’s buying guides will be stocked with the recommendations you need and we’ll be comparing products in real time to see how they fare against one another. We’ve also got a burgeoning how-to section that’s clear, useful and relevant to the things our readers have told us they want to know about.

The Experienced Voices Panel

Speaking of our readers – we’d love you to come and join us. Our Experienced Voices Panel is a team of expert readers who can bring their unique insights into the areas we’re talking about. They’ll feed into our reviews, give comment on our features and become real-life testers for the things we recommend. 

It’s a growing community, and if you think you’ve got some great expertise to offer in the world of homes or fitness, I’d love to hear from you. 

We’re going to be rapidly building out Saga Exceptional in the coming weeks and months, and we’d love to have you along for the journey – whether it’s something you want to see tested, an idea for an article or a story that you want to share with the world, please do get in touch with me and share your thoughts. 

Thank you for being here at the launch of Saga Exceptional – this is the most exciting project I’ve ever been involved with, and I’m thrilled about the plans we’ve got to share with you in the coming months.
