If you ask us, getting older is pretty awesome. Each year we get closer to retirement, our travel dreams get bigger and better. The free time and extra funds that often come with retirement often lead seniors to travel the world. In fact, the biggest range of travelers in the United States are the 65 to 80 age group.
Another excellent bonus about traveling in your older years is that there are tons of discounts available–from airfare to cruise packages to hotels–all over the world. If you choose to take advantage of these various discounts, that means you can use your savings to do even MORE travel. Wins all around!
Here are some of the best travel discounts available to senior travelers right now:
