Travel and Leisure

Traveling can be a rewarding experience for seniors, but there are important considerations to keep in mind when you’re planning a world tour, a trip to see your family, or that fishing excursion you’ve always wanted to take.

Packing light is essential. Take fewer items, do laundry more often, and fit everything you need in a small rolling suitcase and carry-on bag. Take full supplies of all your medications and over the coiner medicines.

Look into travel insurance. Seniors pay more, but it can be worth it, especially if you’re going overseas. Medicare usually doesn’t work in foreign countries, so if you have a supplemental insurance policy, make sure you’re covered for unexpected emergencies.

Don’t forget that senior discounts can have a huge impact on your cost of traveling, accommodations and events. If you’re very organized, you can often buy tickets in advance at significant savings.

Remember, travel is a life-enriching experience, and careful planning can make it even better.
