Seniors travel is one of the fastest growing demographics in the competitive travel industry. It's no surprise that travel businesses are luring this group with attractive rates, destinations, and accommodations.
Typically, the senior traveler has the time, the disposable income, and the desire for global exploration. However, they do have special needs. These needs may include medical support and pharmaceutical availability. Some tours are offering everything from dialysis machines to Yoga for Seniors classes.
Statistically, it’s likely the elderly traveler who will research the proposed trip more thoroughly, enjoy longer stays, embark on more side excursions, and spend more money overall than any other group of travelers.
Senior citizens at sea, air travel for seniors, bus trips for seniors, discount travel fares for seniors, travel training for seniors, adventure travel for the elderly... and more, much more, as the industry skews towards the travelling senior citizen.
