1. Hotels and accommodations

Many hotels offer discounted rates for seniors, but the offers vary a great deal in total savings and qualifying age. Some hotels let qualifying customers book with a senior discount right on their website, while others require guests to go through AARP. Notably, some large hotel chains make discounted rates available to people under 65. Best Western begins at age 55, for instance, and Marriott at age 62.

2. Car rentals If you need to rent a car while you’re away, look into which services in the area offer discounts for seniors. Major car rental companies — like Avis, Budget, and Hertz — all offer senior discounts. Certain customers may even be able to score up to 30% off. Just make sure you understand what age qualifies as 'senior' and which vehicles the discounts apply to before booking.

3. Flights Several major airlines offer discounted ticket prices for travelers in their late 50s and beyond, including United, British Airways, and Delta. Savvy travelers can end up saving on their flights, rental cars, hotels, and more if they keep their eyes peeled for senior savings. Those looking into booking these flights may find they need to contact the airlines directly rather than booking online to get access to senior discounts. 4. Amtrak tickets Do you enjoy traveling by train? If so, Amtrak offers a 10% discount for travelers aged 65 and over for most trips. The age is reduced to 60 for those traveling between the U.S. and Canada on cross-border services operated by Amtrak and VIA Rail Canada." ~ financebuzz.com
