Travel Tips for Women over 60:

You will definitely need this. You are more prone to sickness and injuries. Also, you need to coordinate with your medical insurance as well. Think of this way, having an insurance will save you money and you can use your savings for your other medications. At least, you are rest assured that even you are travelling in another land, you will be covered.

Make a list using your organizer or notebook so you will not forget everything you have planned. Also, think of 1-2 places where you will keep the list so you will know where to search this.

Before booking a flight, reserve aisle seats so you will have a wider legroom, can go to the restroom easily and can seek assistance faster. If you want to enjoy your long flight more, book a business or first class flight for more comfort and the crew could assist you immediately.

Have a medical check-up with your doctor and other healthcare providers such as going to your dentist and optometrist. Don’t forget to take required vaccinations and medications before your flight. Bring a small first aid kit. Place your meds on a pill organizer and don’t include this on your checked-in bag. Just carry this with you.

Take fewer clothes and do your laundry more. If for shorter stay, better to pay for the laundry. Test and carry empty bags first before deciding on which bag will be the lightest to carry. Then, you can stack this bag on the top of the stroller bag. A jacket and a small flashlight are enough as extra items. Also, bring a magnifying glass and another pair of eyeglasses. If in case you have a checked-in bag, make your stroller bag as your carry-on bag so you will just pull this when you arrive at the airport.

Bring a cheap smartphone with you and inform your loved ones where you are. You must learn even only the basics of operating your smartphone. Take note on your phone and organizer the details of your hotel room and the plate numbers of the taxi you are riding in.

Use sandals and shoes without laces. Flat shoes will make you comfortable and be able to walk well. Look for your desired shoe designs so you will not feel haggard and ugly.

If you do not have a carry-on stroller bag and need assistance during transfer flight, don’t hesitate to ask for cart or wheelchair assistance especially if you are a slow walker. Stay hydrated and do short walks to make your body function well. When you get your checked-in bags at the airport, check if things are still complete and if there are illegal things that were put inside your bag. If there are, stay on your place and ask an airport staff to call the airport security.

Travel where you can be taken within a few walks up to a few minutes to the nearest hospital. You must save the hotline numbers so you can call the ambulance and the police. You may also get the fire department contact number as well if you are renting an apartment.

Aside from knowing the locations of hospitals and police stations. Get to know your own embassy in the place. Also, connect with friendly hotel staff so you can call them while you are in an emergency.

Just get an accommodation during night hours and travel the next morning. Do not walk on isolated places.
