New Senior Discounts for Baby Boomer Travelers

New Senior Discounts for Baby Boomer Travelers

Qatar Airlines, with 150 destinations, previously launched a 3 month senior discount for new travelers  65 years of age. That has long since expired. However, today we are seeing other airlines provide reduced prices for seniors.

I just came across a really detailed post as to both existing and new senior discounts. Here are  our 5 tips and select highlights from that updated list of discounts to check out:

Tip One: Age matters:

What is deemed a “senior” varies country by country and company by company.

Tip Two:  Membership requirements:

Some discounts are not just by age but membership in groups such as AARP.

Tip Three:  No combining discounts:

Generally, you must choose between discounts not try to combine them.

Tip Four: Comparison shop:

Senior discounts we have seen ranged from 5% to 10%. Be sure to compare them with other options, including advanced booking and last minute deals.

Tip Five: Seasons matter:

Be sure to check off-season travel. The prices may be even better. In addition, the lower lodging, air and train costs are not “discounts” as such, and that means you might still use your senior discount.

Senior discounts for travel and beyond:

  1. Wireless plans, ATT and Verizon
  2. Cruises, Carnival and Royal
  3.  Airlines, such as Southwest, United and American
  4. Hotel chains, such as Best Western, Choice Hotels, Hampton,  Holiday Inn, Marriott, Red Roof, Motel 6 and Super 8es and Landmark
