Travel sites for Boomers

At this time of year, winter is starting to take over from fall, and thoughts turn to travel or planning to travel, to get away from the dark days of  rain and snow that ensure the west coast is kept green in the spring, summer and fall of the year. But in the deep winter, my soul years for warmer climes and so planning for travel becomes a priority.

My thanks to Helen Cockrell, whose blog is Lets Age Well, it ain't the Age, its the Attitude   She has a wonderful perspective on aging so I would recommend her blog to you.

So, anyway, I thought I would share our favourite planning websites.  I know I always like it when I start working on a project like a trip, and everything is all in one place.   Most of the sites are available for anyone to use, although they do tend to be targeted toward Boomer travellers  You will find good information, discounts and deals on them.  Have a great trip!!
    • Baby Boomers Traveling – This is a great site for the latest information on things like gas prices, or currency exchange rates. Good tips from folks who’ve been there.
    • My Itchy Travel Feet  – One of the best travel sites around, for boomers or anyone. Great advice on what to bring, where to go and what to watch out for.
    • Velvet Escape  – This is a general travel site, but has wonderful advice and information on exotic locales all over the world. Comprehensive information and the areas, accommodations, and things to do.
    • AARP Travel  – AARP always does these sites well and this one is no exception. Very good details, discounts, and information.
    • Vacations to Go  – We use this one often to book our trips. Can really get some good deals for package trips here.
    • Senior Travel  – This is a good site if you’re an older Boomer, especially for discounts and deals.
    • TravelZoo  This is a subscription service or you can go to their website. travelzoo is a global Internet company, their team researches, evaluates and tests thousands of deals to find those with true value. Every week they recommend only deals whose accuracy and availability tehey can confirm. With over 26 million subscribers, we are the largest publisher of deals on the Internet.
