Safety Travel Tips for Senior Citizens

Feb 9th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

How to Travel Safely has good advice like “Think in depth about safety, and make a personal plan. In fact, have a Plan A and a Plan B. You can never be too prepared for the “what if’s.”  Be alert to your surroundings and the potential agenda of others.”  Money issues, cons and stalkers and hotel safety are all addressed here.  Good advice and it is all FREE.

 

Holiday Velvet Guides is an inspiring and useful travel info site for travelers; it gives a nice listing of destinations, in addition to safety tips, and you can browse by Keywords such as Airport Transfers, Florence History, Paris Shopping, Theater Festivals and Castles In Europe.  Each category is enhanced with lots of suggestions on what to do and what to see in each.

 

WikiHow has subcategories of Travel Tips followed by articles in detail on each. How to Avoid Looking Like an American Tourist, How to Be a Smart Traveler, How to Behave in a Foreign Country, How to Exchange Currency, How to enjoy a trip alone, How to Get Organized for Travel and dozens more.  Each tip is divided into additional steps to take in order to achieve a success outcome.  It is a How To Manual first class.

 

About.com: Student Travel will provide good advice on how to keep your money safe while traveling.  Many good suggestions are given on How to Hide Your Money While Traveling, What to do with Foreign Coins leftover (they are no longer any good at a bank or currency exchange…so my advice is SPEND THEM), the use of a Money Belt, using  Debit Card, ATM Machines and more.

 

Lastly, there are many types of passport holders available but my favorite one is similar to the Undercover Neck Pouch. Choose for yourself, but you can’t find a better style anywhere.  You can find one of these at any good travel supply store.  See if you agree.  jeb
