10 Safety Tips for Senior Travelers


9) Take Organized Tours or Consider a Cruise

The whole point of going on a vacation is to enjoy yourself. If you’re retired you may feel like you get enough rest and relaxation at home and are looking for a bit of excitement when you go on a trip. That’s wonderful and you should definitely look into day trips and activities that will give you the buzz you’re looking for. However, it is advisable to take an organized tour rather than going it alone. An organized tour takes all of the hassle out of whatever it is you want to do. If you want to go scuba diving it makes sense to save your energy for the diving itself not to waste it on trying to find a place to dive, somewhere to rent the equipment, and a way to get back to the hotel afterwards. Similarly, older travelers might want to consider taking a cruise rather than traveling to multiple destinations over land. No train, bus, or even airplane will ever be as comfortable as having your own cabin on a cruise ship, and most cruises organize so many day trips off the boat that you’ll never get bored of the open sea.
