Seniors: Travel Assistance from Online Magazines

May 11th, 2011 | By James E Becker | Category: Senior Travel

As more and more seniors take to the air and the sea, travel magazines abound.  I will not try to list the “best” ones, simply those that I find helpful and full of pertinent information.  Condé Nast has to be near the top as it is “stuffed” with super information in each edition.  If you subscribe on their site, you will be sent their 2011 Gold List of the World’s Best Places to Stay.  They are also featuring a new Best of Italy booklet.  Questions for the Editors?  Send them via this site that lets readers ask questions or send comments about their articles, contests and features.

I have always liked National Geographic’s Traveler that has what they call their Intelligent Travel Blog, photo of the week, their archives and much more.  There is never a poor volume.

Travel 50 & Beyond has discounts, tips and new vacation ideas for travelers over 50. With more than 375,000 readers each issue, Travel 50 & Beyond is the only travel magazine that is written and designed specifically for people who are 50 and older.  They are now celebrating their 20th year in publication, Travel 50 & Beyond serves a more thoughtful traveler who demands quality, value and an enriching travel experience.  They have an online subscription discount of 32%. 

Vacations listing is called “Fun on a Budget” and each month features Top Vacation Deals for cruises, resorts, hotels and more. I liked their long listing of the highly popular resorts and tour operators.  It is a very popular magazine with almost 1,000,000 subscribers,. Vacations magazine is said to be America’s best source of affordable, new vacation ideas. Now celebrating their 24th year in publication, Vacations can help you find the ideal vacation for any taste or budget. Their mission is to inform and advise travelers of all tastes and budgets who seek new vacation ideas.

Budget Travel magazine offers money-saving, practical travel advice for travelers. Find city guides, restaurant recommendations and more for your next vacation on a budget in each issue of Budget Travel magazine.  Travel and Leisure features in each issue the “best” place for whatever your interest might be for your perfect vacation.

Lots of great information here, Seniors, so check out your next vacation by considering a subscription or checking out each in your local library or online.  jeb
