Aug 21, 2018 | Blog

Are you planning to take your parents on a holiday? It is always a challenge while travelling with both the young ones and the elderly. Both need special attention and care. They have special needs that need to be met according to their demand. So, while planning a family holiday with your parents or elders in the family these are some of the things, which you need to be careful about.

Choose holiday destinations in India which are senior citizen friendly. Involve them in selecting the desired destination and take their choice into consideration. Ask your parents which place they would like to visit. They will feel important and happy that their choice is regarded.

If your parents are independent and want to travel by themselves, make sure that they are in a group of same age, same interests, and like-minded people. There are so many leisurely paced personalized holidays especially customized for travellers over 50. Make sure you choose the right holiday with the right kind of group.

Make sure your parents or elders are up-to-date on all the routine and country-specific vaccinations. Protect your health while travelling and make sure you schedule a consultation with your family doctor before you travel.

Share the cost of travel by planning small group travel with your family and friends and strengthen bonds.

Always plan in advance, which leads to savings on accommodations, airfare, and attractions. Plan ahead and be flexible for off-season travel.

Memories can be made even in a day trip or a 2-3 day vacation to a nearby sea or beach or national park. This also helps the elderly stay active. Travel does not mean that you spend on exotic destinations every time.

Do not hesitate to spend money on travelling during retirement. It can be one of your big purchases. Look at travel as an investment that can improve your health and well-being, which ultimately leads to a more fulfilling retirement.

It has been proven that travel keeps you young or at least healthier. So do not hesitate, plan your next vacation at a latest holiday destination and improve your health and overall well-being.
