Mention that you're a senior when you make your travel reservations. Although all major U.S. airlines have canceled their senior-discount programs, many hotels still offer discounts for seniors. In most cities, people 60 and over qualify for reduced admission to theaters, museums, and other attractions, as well as discounted fares on public transportation.

Members of AARP get discounts on hotels, airfares, and car rentals. AARP offers members a wide range of benefits, including AARP The Magazine and a monthly newsletter. Anyone 50 and over can join.

A recommended publication offering travel resources and discounts for seniors is Travel 50 & Beyond magazine.
