SENIORS CONSIDER GROUP TRAVEL

Advantages to Senior Group Travel

Joining a senior travel group can be a great way to see famous landmarks, make new friends and visit places all around the world. Group travel offers seniors an easy way to explore since most of the details, including accommodations and transportation, will be taken care of for you and the group price is often less than if you traveled alone.

Transitions Abroad offers a variety of different senior travel websites. This site offers a wide variety of group choices; widows, singles, women and even groups from particular cities. ElderTreks focuses on folks 50 and over and gives you exotic choices all over the globe.  ElderTreks offers active, off-the-beaten-path, small-group adventures by both land and sea in over 100 countries.

I am very well aware of the validity of this next organization as I served as a tour group leader on twelve occasions.  It is called Road Scholar (formerly Elderhostel). Road Scholar, the not-for-profit leader in educational travel since 1975, offers more than 7,000 educational tours in all 50 states and 150 countries. Alongside local and renowned experts, experience in-depth and behind-the-scenes learning opportunities, from cultural tours and study cruises to walking, biking and more.

Did you know that escorted tours save you up to 40% off the price of traveling the same itinerary on your own? That’s because tour operators negotiate low group rates on everything from hotels to sightseeing, and pass the savings on. And that’s not all. Escorted tours are worry-free and hassle-free because all the details are handled for you. Escorted tours include the services of a tour director with years of experience to help you discover more sights than you could possibly find on your own. Now choose between adventure travel, river cruises, safaris, train tours and more.

Over 50 and Overseas is for folks who would like to be paid and do volunteer work abroad. Peace Corps jobs in foreign countries? Short term international volunteer and work opportunities for baby boomers and seniors? Combine retirement with a new international career?

Elder Expeditions espouse a fundamental credo that physical fitness, activity and diversification are essential keys to maintaining a healthy body and mind, increasing the likelihood of longevity and graceful aging.

Attention Walkers

I have met many seniors who enjoy both biking and walking. Here is a senior group is called Walking the World. If you love to walk, join a group of seniors that do as well.  Walking The World has been the leader in adventure travel and guided walking tours for active adults since 1987 when they were the first to offer active outdoor programs for the 50+ traveler. See the world and keep in shape at the same time.  Sounds great to me. jeb
