Touring: Senior Travel
On the whole, senior travellers are well respected throughout the world and this can only be seen as a good thing for the elderly. In some countries there are even special senior citizen advice bureaus which offer all manner of helpful advice to help arrange days out and forward travel plans. For independent senior travellers, offices of this sort are a mine full of useful information and well worth seeking out. Proof of age cards also qualify elderly travellers for discounts at various museums and attractions.

The general ruling for age discount qualification is 60-65 plus for men and 55-65 plus for women. Train passes, particularly within Europe offer good discounts for the elderly, with sometimes savings of up to a third off the normal standard fares. Health can be a concern for many elderly travellers although a doctor can determine whether or not a person is healthy enough to undertake a certain journey.

Many coach operators arrange package itineraries geared especially toward the elderly. They involve pick-ups from home towns and bonuses like luggage handling services from hotel to hotel. All outings on such trips are usually arranged.
