A Potpourri of Travel Sites for Seniors

Dec 22nd, 2009 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

Travel Aides International is an escort service for handicapped, disabled, senior, elderly travelers.  There is a definite need for this kind of travel organization for many elderly travelers.  This site seems to fit the need quite well.  If you know of folks who are being held back due to an infirmity and who desire to travel with such an aide, pass this site on to them. Travel insurance for travelers is worth looking into for any medical emergency.  If one falls ill thousands of miles from home and the need for an emergency air evacuation for home arises, it will prove to be worth the premium.

Rica Lewis states that “Many seniors want to travel, despite the obstacles that can make a trip challenging.  Physical limitations and health complications can make walking long distances and carrying luggage difficult—which can make a journey away from home intimidating. Using travel aids, seniors will find traveling less chaotic and more pleasurable.  For seniors who require the assistance of a walking aid, collapsible canes can be a handy option. These canes are durable and lightweight. Adjustable height features allow one size to fit all.  Pill boxes (specifically those that have separate daily compartments) serve senior travelers especially well. These inexpensive plastic bins can be stocked with essential medications and stowed safely in a suitcase.  ’Unbelievably Good Deals and Great Adventures that You Absolutely Can’t Get Unless You’re Over 50 by Joan Rattman Heilman is a handbook for the hard core senior traveler.” Check it out. 

  • Personal Travel Websites is advertised to “…make you quit your day job”.
  • For solo female travelers, check out this Best Women Travel Sites . Josh Lew has spent the better part of the last decade abroad and presents here a variety of travel possibilities.  Hopefully a couple will “trip your trigger.”
  • Here is another:  50 Things To Do Before You Die.
  • Here is an example of a great handbag for women to carry that my wife and daughter both carry.  Note the size and shape.  It comes in a variety of colors as well.  Secure and easy to handle purses are a necessity for women travelling.
  • Bizymoms.com provides travel tips for the entire family.  The articles on this site detail tips to consider when traveling to the most popular travel destinations with the family.
  • That’s about it for today.  Do come back.
