Tips For Senior Citizen Travelers

Prepare your documents as early as possible. Passport is the most important document and you can apply in person, through passport agencies and by mail.

Do not bring more than you need. Bring only the things that you need because it will be so tiring to carry heavy suitcases. Senior citizen travelers, should not burden them with too much luggage. Wash and wear clothing is a good idea so that you will not bring too many clothes. Avoid bringing valuable things like jewelries and dress simply to avoid being a target of thieves.

If you are under medications, it is important to bring enough supply to maintain your health. Bring your medicines in its original packages or bottles and bring your doctor's prescription to avoid narcotics issues in foreign countries or airports. Review your insurance policy and check if it covers your medical expenses abroad, if not it is best to buy a policy that covers your travel medical expenses.
