BEST 2018 SENIOR TRAVEL DISCOUNTS

Rentable Condo in Tucson. See The Traveling Seniors’ blog for details on “10 Glorious Days”

Alright. With senior travel, we can’t climb mountains, balance on cliffs or even handle certain small hills like we used to. We do qualify for senior travel discounts! As THE TRAVELING SENIORS explore America, we travel primarily by car because we take everything plus the kitchen sink! We can drive slowly on backroads, and thoroughly enjoy places where tourists don’t congregate. But don’t think we don’t also love crowded cities or other means of travel-we do!

Fortunately for all of us, the Senior List has published a list of the best 2018 senior travel discounts.* The Senior List’s Best Senior Travel Discounts is full of verified senior discounts.  Senior Travel Discounts that have a verified flag next to them have been vetted by The Senior List or that site’s followers.

Senior Travel Discount policies can change at any time during the year so please verify these discounts before traveling.

*Please note: Some of the discounts you’ll see below are offered by franchise owners in local markets.  This means that senior discounts may vary by location.
