Maximizing Senior Options: Getting More, Often for Less Part 2 of 2
See More Places, Do More Things
Travel is one of the best ways to have new experiences.
Budget-friendly options – Take advantage of off-season prices at resorts, on cruise lines, and even at campgrounds with an RV.
Group travel – Start by contacting local travel agencies, local senior citizens centers and resources offered through the Road Scholar organization (originally Elderhostel), the leader in the lifelong learning movement. (RoadScholar.com)
Save on meals – Take advantage of any senior discounts.
Online travel discounts – There are also many online resources for individuals willing to research lower prices. Consider Expedia.com, Kayak.com, Orbitz.com, Priceline.com, CheapAir.com, CheapOair.com and similar sites. Smartphone apps like Google Trips, Hopper, and Airbnb are also good options for spotting travel discounts.
Stay flexible – Many online reservation systems help travelers find cheaper flights if they aren’t locked into particular dates. Also consider volunteering to be bumped for overbooked flights, which often results in free future tickets!
Plan in advance – Airline ticket prices usually climb as the date nears.
Closer to Home
Find out when local entertainment venues offer discounts or “free days” for seniors, including the zoo, art galleries and museums, theatre productions, and matinee showings.
Finally, don’t forget to schedule some “me time” to be alone and enjoy your own company, which can do as much for your outlook as travel and socializing. Consider meditation, journaling, reading, yoga, or even curling up with a blanket and a bowl of popcorn to watch a movie solo.
