Summer vacations can have special meaning for senior citizens, says the Association of Mature American Citizens. For some they are opportunities to revisit those places that bring back fond memories of their youth. For others they offer a chance to see the sights that they’ve placed high up on their “bucket lists.”
Whatever motivates your travel plans, take heed and stay safe, says AMAC. Take along enough of the medications you take to last the whole time you’ll be away, and then some. Pack light; you’ll be getting enough exercise on your tour so you don’t want to be encumbered by excess baggage. Keep documents such as passports and airline tickets in a safe place. Get yourself a money belt or a money pouch that you can wear around your neck and under your blouse or shirt. Finally, you may want to consider the purchase of travel insurance to cover travel snafus and/or mishaps that may occur along the way.
One final tip: senior discounts abound in many foreign destination for rail and bus trips, museums and concerts so seek out a concession, el discuento, einen rabatt or un rabais.
