DID YOU KNOW? Senior Travel Fun Facts

• It's no surprise that older frequent travelers want to see China, Southeast Asia and South America and other exotic locales. More than the younger generation, by the time they reach 50 most seniors have already seen Paris, London and New York!

• Most seniors prefer comfort over money savings while on vacation. In fact, most baby boomers surveyed say they would opt for a nearby hotel rather than stay with their kids or grandkids.

• According to a recent survey, senior travelers rank a camera, sunglasses, and comfortable shoes as top items to pack on a vacation trip. For women, a cosmetics bag also ranks high, while for men it's a comforable pair of jeans.

• Seniors travel most frequently as couples for summer trips, followed by weekend getaways. Other reasons include multi-generational family vacations, or excursions to research their family roots.
