5) Documentation

Having all necessary documentation and identification printed out and stored in a safe place is Travel 101 for all ages. However, when traveling as a senior it’s likely that you’ll have a little more documentation to keep track of than the average person. No one wants to deal with the headache of lost identification, tickets, or insurance papers, so gather together everything you need well before your trip and make copies. It’s safest to keep at least three copies of everything, one for each of you, if you’re traveling as a pair, and a spare in your suitcase. Another good tip is to scan all of your documents and keep a copy on a USB stick too, so that if all of your copies somehow disappear you’ve got a digital version that can be printed out. Everyone worries about losing things or getting forgetful as they get older, but by organizing all of your documentation beforehand you can relax, safe in the knowledge that you’re prepared for every eventuality.
