Travel tips for over 70s

  • If you’re retired you’ll have the flexibility to travel whenever you want. If you’re holidaying in Europe, avoid the crowds and heat by sticking to ‘shoulder season’, April-June or September and October.
  • Packing spare spectacles, hearing aid batteries and medication (both prescribed and non-prescribed as brand names often differ and some supplements are not available overseas) will provide peace of mind should you lose anything while away.
  • Sightseers should take advantage of bus and boat tours to take in the highlights in a more relaxed fashion.
  • Look for discounts, especially when it comes to rail travel where a local senior card can save you a fortune. The qualifying age will vary by country and by service or venue but invariably there will be concessions at major cultural venues – make sure you take your passport with you to prove your age.
  • Pack as lightly as possible and check your luggage if you aren’t travelling direct to your final destination. Packing light will make getting around busy airports or train stations and negotiating public transport easier.
  • When booking your accommodation, check its accessibility and location, ensuring that your room, on-site facilities and local attractions are all easy to get to.
