Top tips for older travellers
- Plan ahead - Conduct the necessary research into your destinations, making sure, for example, that you travel during seasons when weather extremes are less likely.
- Inform people who you trust about your plans - Letting people know as you move between locations can make all the difference if something goes wrong, especially if you are travelling alone.
- Remain aware of your surroundings - This is particularly important when you are paying for goods, or withdrawing money from an ATM. If your valuables are vulnerable at any point, quickly scan the area for any potential problems.
- Contact your bank and telephone provider before leaving - If you use a bank card or your mobile phone in an unfamiliar location, your provider may become suspicious and suspend its use so its best to inform them of your travel plans.
- Travel lightly - Large cumbersome backpacks will only tire you out and make you stand out as a tourist.
