How to Travel With Children
Making vacation plans with children in mind can be overwhelming, with hectic schedules, endless packing lists, and cranky kiddos. This helpful article from the New York Times breaks down the planning tips to keep in mind when traveling with a family, the best ways to prepare and combat common travel challenges like a sick child or picky eaters, and even includes an in-depth packing guide.
The Best Senior Travel Discounts, and Where to Find Them
If you are over the age of 65 in the US (or age 60 in the rest of the world), there are a wide variety of travel discounts available to you. Some airlines offer senior fares, as do many large US hotel chains and independent hotels. An important note from this article is that in order to take advantage of senior travel discounts at hotels, you must book with a travel agent or directly with the hotel rather than through an online travel agency such as Expedia. Working with a travel agent ensures you are getting the full discount you are entitled to.
