Safety Travel Tips for Senior Citizens

Just because you’re getting older doesn’t mean you have to stop travelling. In fact, travel means more when you are older; you will be able to fully appreciate the new experiences you’re having because of a lifetime of knowledge.

However, you can’t travel the way you used to when you are older. You will have to work around physical limitations. To protect yourself and your belongings you should take a few precautions.

Follow these safety travel tips.

Get Insurance

Older people are more at risk of falling and hurting themselves, and getting sick. So they need travel insurance more than anybody else if they don’t want their travel to get delayed or interrupted. This is especially important if they are travelling in a foreign country.

Don’t let people know your hotel room is empty

People assume that hotels are safe places, which is not true. Travellers, especially senior citizens, are often seen as easy targets, and they should do what they can to protect their belongings. Don’t put the “clean my room” sign on your hotel door. It is a clear sign that your hotel room is empty. You normally leave extra money, passports and travel documents in hotels rooms when you go sightseeing. So you don’t want these important things to get into wrong hands. Inform the front desk on the way out and ask them to send someone to clean the room.

Watch What You Eat

Older folks are frequently on restricted diets as they have more sensitive tummies. While away from home they would like to forget those facts, but doing so could have adverse effects. So don’t try to experiment with food while travelling or else you will be spending more time in your hotel room than sightseeing. What you can do is avoid too spicy, heavy or cheesy items.

Mind Your Meds

Senior travellers need to take as much care with their medications as they do with their passports and money. Don’t leave them lying in the open in your hotel room and don’t pack them in checked luggage. In case your flight back home is delayed you should have enough medicine to last you an extra day or two. Also, keep a list of essential medicines and their dosages in your purse so that if the need arise you can replace them.

Essential Medications for Travel

The fact that you can afford things you may not have been able to when you were younger is one of the perks about getting older. But you will be the target for thieves if you carry items like gold watches, expensive jewellery and fancy cameras. Because most thieves believe that older travellers are more unsteady on their feet and less aware of their surroundings. For your safety, leave the bling at home.

Keep Others in the Loop

Keep others apprised of your daily itinerary, including your hotel concierge or innkeeper, if you’re going to be travelling solo. Inform them when you will be back and stick to your schedule. Always carry a smartphone with you.

Stay Safe on Your Feet

In order to get through full days of walking and touring, wear comfortable shoes. To stay steady on your feet and for good balance it is always better to wear flats. If you wear heels you are at risk of falling or spraining an ankle.

How to choose best tour travel package

Holidays are so precious to most of us who are caught up with white collar jobs in the city. When time is of the essence, it can feel good to get help from someone else who can plan your itinerary for you. Slow, solo travels would always be the cheapest form of travelling, but are not entirely practical at all times. If you don’t want to quit your job and hit the road for an unspecified amount of time, then you better get it all started with the help of a reliable travel agent who can help you in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Also, here are a few wise tips to save your penny while enjoying your ride.

service_imageCompare place, time and travel

There is no point trying to choose between a 30-day bus trip, a hop-on, hop-off bus tour, and a small group adventure tour operator who utilises some public transport. Settle on the type of tour you want before anything else.

If you’re using a travel agent to book, don’t go in without having done some prior research. Ask the options from the travel agent and choose the operator who is best for you. This is also the same with sight-seeing options. Don’t encourage all the tourist guides who approach you as soon as you visit. All the big travel agencies have agreements with one or two tourism operators to serve their clients.

Don’t go by the label

Don’t mistake trips labelled ‘budget’, ‘backpacker’ or ‘basic’ as automatically better value than that tour company’s standard trips. These ‘cheaper’ versions are sometimes used as a ploy to capture more of the traveller market. Look closely and you may find that the standard trip offers better value.

Don’t buy the extras

To save extra cash, don’t book any pre-and-post-trip accommodation or airport transfers through your tour company. It’s always cheaper to book additional accommodation independently, either through a hotel directly or by using an accommodation booking website. The same goes for airport transfers and private taxi transfers and airport shuttle service.

At last, one of the most important cautions and probably a rule of thumb is never to do shopping with a group. Also don’t get into all the optional activities set up by the tour leader if you think you can get a profitable deal by yourself. But if you feel that the price quoted by the tour guide is reasonable, quit wasting time and book the deal and start to enjoy the views, shopping and all that is in store for you in the place you travel. So instead of running halfway around the town to save money, book your tour right away and make the most out of your itinerary.

 

Why we still need a travel agent?

Travel agency business has a very high success rate, despite the modernization and innovation of new technologies that allow travellers to book their packages online, 24/7. This explains why people still opt for the services of a travel agent

pexels-photo-largeHere are a few reasons that explain why we still need a travel agent.

Vast Knowledge

Travel agents are experienced and have vast knowledge in everything about travelling the world. Choosing a suitable travel agency package services is quite difficult for first-timers who travel abroad. Instead of trusting the online reviews, it would be better to take the word of a qualified travel agent to get the proper information about the place you would like to visit.

Value for your money

While going on a trip, travellers prefer to enjoy an all-inclusive trip that covers most of the city’s hotspots. A travel agent can ensure travellers that they don’t miss any of the amazing happenings in the vicinity, like a great restaurant down the street, or a live concert in town.

Setting the itinerary

A travel agent can gather the right information about the days and dates of special events and even make reservations. With a travel agent in charge, you can be sure that your itinerary has everything to take you to some of the exciting happenings around the city.

Budgeting

A travel agent is also an expert in estimating the total cost for a trip that you select. Though you are the decision maker, a travel agent presents a clear view of what will be entertaining to you based on your interests and will also help you determine your affordability.

Insurance

A travel agent also offers advice on travel insurance and makes sure that the hotel where you are planning to stay is safe and that the company running the excursion won’t rob you. They also insure that travellers have the correct travel documents, so they don’t face problems in a strange country. Even if things take a wrong turn, travel agents have the resources and the contacts to get travellers to safe grounds.

Time Savvy

A travel agent takes care of all your needs by customizing your travel package. Instead of spending hours in researching and making reservations and booking tickets, all you have to do is to ask your travel agent fix it for you and within moments your ultimate travel package will be ready. All you will have to do is to pack your bags.

Most Creative Ways to Save Money During Travel

Worldwide, all countries are facing an economic slowdown and so recreational expenses like leisure travel are becoming unaffordable to many. So if you are one of those who love to travel but lack the means to do so here are a few tips. There are many Creative ways to save money during travel. You can travel in some comfort and not feel the pinch in your pocket.

Most common way to save money on accommodation is to own time shares in good resorts. A time share is where we pay an annual membership in addition to holiday home rent for the time duration specified in a contract. The advantage is that you can travel to all areas where the timeshare companies have resorts and stay. This way you can spend less on accommodation and yo9u can even rent the property if you don’t travel to that destination.Header-2Always travel as a group during vacations. Almost all travel companies offer good discounts from travel tickets to accommodation when you travel as a group. In the vacation spot also you can have more fun as a group and take good memories back with you.

There are unpublished rates in every hotel and travel websites. These rates are not publicized and are not promoted. If you can comparison shop among various travel websites, you can get a good deal. So, be prepared to spend time on research before deciding on one travel site.

Next fool proof way to vacation cheaply is to travel during off season. Almost all resorts and luxury hotels even have an off season rate which is very low compared to the full rates. Flight tickets and accommodation can be easily arranged by the travel website at a fabulous rate during off season.  Another mindset people have is that vacation should be in a far flung exotic location. Not required, as there will be perfectly nice destinations close by in your area for a holiday.

Try to find cheap accommodation where ever you go. A lot of people offer home stays in almost all countries and places. It also gives you an experience of a lifetime. You can be part of the family for the duration of your stay and sample their life. This is an experience like no other. Be adventurous and hitchhike to your destination if you can. Try to register as a volunteer for service organizations and you can travel to countries to help and to explore. This kind of work and vacation is also catching on worldwide. This type of vacation can make you grateful for all the comfort you have at home.

Lastly vacations should not be micromanaged. There is no need to plan every small detail and activity, so go with the flow and enjoy doing nothing for a few days. If each and every day is organized it takes away the spontaneity and charm of the travel experience. So find creative ways to enjoy travel.
