Senior Travel Planning Sites… More Good Information

Jul 28th, 2010 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

A great new find is called TravelDirectory.com and focuses specifically on seniors.  A whole series of tours, expeditions, escape holidays and more are rated and travel details are included. As far as I am concerned, one can never have enough travel tips, especially for seniors and here is a whole page of them.

Rick Seaney of FareCompare.com has some good advice for senior escort strategies (Air Travel – Senior Citizen Escort Strategies).  A lot of older people can do most things young people can, but navigating a busy airport may not be one of them.  Especially if the senior in question doesn’t fly much. And if the senior hasn’t flown since 9/11, forget it. What to do?  Information on this site is helpful.

If you are a “cruiser” then this site may be of interest to you.  Last Minute Cruise Deals For Seniors offer last minute get-away cruises to shake off the winter blues. These are only a few of the hundreds of cruise deals available for seniors from Cruises Only. The Cruises Only website has hundreds of other bargain cruises also available. So if you’re thinking of taking a cruise this year, shop around. Make sure you read the Terms and Conditions so you know exactly what the fares include and do-not include. Cabins are limited so they won’t be available for too long. Also check out the reviews link to see which cruise lines receive the top ratings from customers. Many of these offer additonal bonus items so make sure you check out any Bonuses, extra offerings, or shore excursion deals. 

This website contains Travel Information for Senior Citizens as well.  Each topic below has lot of tips and help for making your trip a total success.  Check them out.
