1767649_mDear Savvy Senior: What types of senior discounts are available to older travelers? My husband and I are approaching retirement and love to travel, but love to save money too. — Almost Retired

Dear Almost: There is actually wide variety of travel discounts available to older travelers — usually starting at either age 50, 55, 60, 62 or 65.

But, you first need to be aware that when it comes to senior travel bargains, the “senior discount” may not always be the best deal.

Hotels, airlines and cruise lines, for example, offer advanced bookings along with special deals and promotions from time to time that may be a lower rate than what the senior discount is. Always ask about the lowest possible rate and the best deal available.

Club memberships: If you’re a member of AARP, there are dozens of travel discounts available on hotels, rental cars, cruises and vacation packages. To find them, see discounts. aarp.org/travel or call 800-675-4318. Annual AARP membership fees are $16 or less if you join for multiple years.
