Smart Travel Tips for Seniors

Check out these travel tips for seniors post-COVID-19. 

You spent the past couple of decades working hard, making a living and raising the kids. Now that you are happily retired and the kids are out of the house, it is time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Senior travel can be a rewarding experience, full of fun, adventure and unlimited time.  

If you are getting ready to hit the road or head to the airport for a much-anticipated vacation, you will want to pack smart and make the most of your travel budget. Here are some simple tips you can use to make the most of your vacation.

Pack Light

Nothing can ruin a trip faster than a bulging suitcase and a crowded airport. If you want to enjoy your trip, you will want to pack light. That means using smart packing techniques, like rolling your clothes, packing your T-shirts and underwear into your shoes and leaving room in the suitcase for souvenirs.

If you are staying at a hotel, you can probably skip packing the toiletries. Just grab the tiny bottles of shampoo, conditioner and lotion at the hotel and save the space in your suitcase.

Consider a Package Tour

Independent travel can be a lot of fun, but if you want to kick back and relax, a package tour might be a better option. Package tour operators take care of all the details for you, from booking great hotels to finding the best things to see and do.  

If you want to combine the adventure of independent travel with the security of a package tour, look for an operator that lets you book optional excursions. This type of travel gives you the best of both worlds.

Contact Local Colleges

If there is a college or university in your town, contact the administrators and ask about travel programs and study abroad options. You do not have to be a student to take advantage of many travel opportunities, and you will get a chance to meet people from all over the world.

Many community colleges also offer short-term travel options, including single-day and overnight motorcoach outings. These budget-friendly alternatives let you travel more often and meet fellow adventurers.  

Start a Senior Travel Club

While there is nothing wrong with traveling solo, sometimes it is more fun to tour with a group. If you have a group of like-minded friends, consider starting a senior travel club. Many of your senior friends are probably in the same boat you are in; they have plenty of time to enjoy themselves and see the world, and all they need is someone fun to see it with.

Senior travel can be a lot of fun, but it is important to make the most of your adventure. Whether you are planning a trip around the world or a vacation in the next town, these tips can help you enjoy every minute of your travel experience.
