Plan your finances: Make a note of approximate amount that you plan to spend on internal travel, food and shopping. In case of international destination, check the current and projected currency conversion rate and plan your finances accordingly. Take limited cash, take travel cards, travellers’ cheque or internationally accepted credit card. This will give you a lot of peace of mind.


Travel with professional tours: If you are travelling to a destination where you don’t have any friends or family, then you must try to travel with professional tour operators which specialize in senior citizen tour packages for domestic and international destinations.
