Reap the rewards of your golden years after reviewing our list.
Wanderlust isn’t just reserved for the young. It’s also open to the young at heart — and sometimes with sweet savings. As you enter retirement, traveling and vacationing become more accessible because you have more free time. Planes, trains and even automobiles are just a few of the modes of transportation you can get discounted as a senior. In fact, your destination may also offer discounts for you to take advantage of.
From the classic early bird specials to AARP discounts, a variety of dining deals are available for seniors. Chances are, your go-to restaurant offers some form of a deal, but many popular establishments and local eateries include discounts, free beverages and special menus. Whether you’re in the mood for Italian food or looking for a quaint new date spot, these discounts are sure to keep you and your wallet full.
Although you’re retired, finances and income can still be in the forefront of your mind. Seniors receive a magnitude of financial perks including tax reductions and medical coverage. Whether transitioning to part-time work or living off your retirement savings, be sure to review the many ways your wallet and bank account can benefit from your golden years.
The rewards of aging extend far beyond financial benefits and travel discounts. Along with age comes time and experience, perfect for volunteering and part-time work. There are plenty of services available to help you find work or volunteer opportunities best suited for your lifestyle. Seniors can also continue learning with free college tuition in select states, enjoy discounts on grocery shopping or receive a lesser rate for entertainment and adventures.
There are plenty benefits out there depending on where you live and your age. Do not be afraid to ask if a restaurant, retail store or any other service offers a senior discount. The worst they can say is “no.” If your company offers a discount for seniors, please let us know and we can add it to our list.
