7) Explore Senior Discounts
You might have to pay a little extra to enjoy some of the airport and in-flight conveniences that make your flight more pleasant, like extra leg-room, but you can make this money back in a jiffy by keeping your eyes open for senior discounts or concessions. In Europe you can save a big chunk of money by taking advantage of discounted senior tickets for the inter-country rail network. A similar discount applies to the inner city transport network of most major European cities. When visiting cultural or historic sights, always ask if there is a senior discount on ticket prices. You might be surprised what discounts you’re entitled to as a senior citizen in places like museums, cinemas, art galleries, and theaters. Don’t be afraid to ask if you’re entitled to money off, as not everywhere will advertise the discounted rates they’re able to offer. Many tour operators, resorts, hotels, and even restaurants offer special travel discounts for older travelers, so take a good look at your holiday package to make sure you’re getting the best deal before you sign on the dotted line.
