Elderly Travel Tips

Mary and Bob

As you can see my wife and I are over twenty years old.  In fact, we are members of AARP.  I am glad my wife isn't looking over my shoulder while I write this page.  Just in case she reads this page let me say, my wife is beautiful and filled with youth filled ideas and love.  Do you think that will get me out of hot water?

We love to travel and we both recognize we face different challenges than someone a little younger.  Now, I'm not admitting to old age, yet, but I am saying we are getting older.

Recently we sold our Mustang convertible and bought a comfortable car.  We plan our walking activities and my wife always finds a place for me to sit while she shops.  We try to plan ahead, like where are the bathrooms.

Elderly,  who me, I guess I am and my wife is beginning to accept the aches and pains of arriving to the golden age of the elderly.

As a semi-elderly person, note I said semi-elderly, we face certain challenges and we want to address a few issues concerning traveling. 

We have invited a guess writer to give us a few tips on air travel and the elderly. 

Elderly Travel Tips

Travel Tips For the Elderly
By Pamela Lawson

Traveling, as good as it is for the elderly, can be a cumbersome affair for them. Health and mobility remains to be a problem. As age catches up, elderly people who have grown children, may want to see the world before their time is up. It is strongly advised that elderly people organize group trips instead of heading out of town or to a foreign land on their own. If something untoward was to happen, there is at least someone else who can get help.

It is also important for elderly people to get a complete medical check before booking their flight. Doctors may advise them to get vaccinations (like tetanus, Diphtheria, etc) and a healthy supply of medications based on their medical history. Another thing to iron out before the trip is insurance. Yes, we know it sounds like a whole lot of trouble but it is completely necessary...just in case.

In fact, we strongly encourage elderly travelers to keep medical records and documents with them during their travel. These documents will accelerate doctors during emergencies. This is particularly true for those with rare conditions and those who may need medication overseas. Elderly travelers are also advised to keep some laxatives in their bags because this is a common occurrence for those who are in for long flights overseas. In fact, developing DVT (deep venous thrombosis) is a threat to most people aged fifty and above.

And of course, bring along the right clothing. Children who are internet-savvy should take extra care in checking the weather report in the destination country. The weather in the said country determines what is to be packed into the luggage. If it is going to be rainy, bring along rain coats and umbrellas too. During such a season, be careful with the shoes too - make sure the shoes are non-slip, and if they are worn out, we strongly advice elderly travelers to get new shoes before the trip.

Elderly travelers who are using dentures are hereby reminded that it is hard to find adhesives abroad. Get one and pack it into your overnight before the flight.

Remember to book the US charter bus rental packages early to avoid disappointment.
