Senior travel clubs are a great option for seniors who still want to travel and see the world, but don’t want to bother with the hassle of planning a trip and figuring out the logistics on their own.
Traveling with a senior travel club often offers greater discounts than seniors can get traveling alone. Rates for hotels, airfare, entry fees to attractions, and many other travel expenses are negotiated by the travel clubs for the best rates. Check out some of our tips on finding the right senior travel club.
Do your research. Make sure you check out a few different senior travel clubs before settling on one. You want to make sure the club is a right fit for you or for you aging loved one.
Test the waters. Go on a short trip with your club before traveling the world. You don’t want to go overseas with a group of people with whom you have nothing in common! Start with a day trip instead.
Power in numbers. Bring a friend along. You are more likely to feel comfortable in a larger group if you aren’t alone. Ask a close friend who has the same travel interests as you do.
