Luxor Nursing and Rehab at Mills Pond on How You Can Travel Like a King for a Fraction of the Price

Many seniors are living on fixed incomes, reliant on Social Security, pensions, and other monthly checks. But that doesn’t mean that you travel like you’ve always wanted to during your golden years!

Luxor Nursing and Rehab at Mills Pond presents these five ways you can travel for less without missing out on anything.


  • Airfare Savings Apps


Airline prices fluctuate on a near-daily basis, so it’s tough to know when the best time is to buy. You can let the airlines’ websites and independent apps like Hitlist. Southwest Airlines, for example, allows you to re-book a flight if you find a lower fare and then the savings are passed along to you in the form of credit toward your next trip.


  • Travel Where Friends and Family Are


Or, alternatively, travel with friends and family. You can stay at someone’s house or share lodging and vehicle expenses. There are usually savings in numbers when you travel.


  • Look Into All Lodging Options


Hotel alternatives like Airbnb and Vrbo offer both price flexibility and usually a larger living space. It’s worth fully investigating all of your options before you decide on lodging for your trip.


  • Use the Exchange Rate to Your Advantage


By studying the currency exchange rate and finding a country where the U.S. dollar goes further, you may be able to travel abroad for a bargain.


  • Opt for Long Weekends Instead of Extended Vacations


In most cases, a four-day trip will allow you to see what you want to see and will cost a lot less than a seven- or eight-day trip. If you’re retired, look at traveling from Sunday to Thursday to lock in generally cheaper hotel rates.
