Senior Travel—Many attractions offer discounts for seniors (sometimes that applies to someone as young as 60). Even if discounts aren’t posted, ask if they’re available. In most cities, people over the age of 60 also qualify for discounted fares on public transport, and ScotRail offers a third off rail travel.

Don't be shy about asking for discounts, but carry some kind of identification that shows your date of birth. Also, mention you're a senior when you make your reservations. Many hotels offer seniors discounts.

If you’re a member of AARP, check for airfare discounts with British Airways.
