Age Group Travel

Traveling with seniors and teenagers requires special planning and consideration.  You'll want to keep them interested and safe at the same time. This section features trips and planning advice for travel with teens and grandparents, from trusted sources.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Get teens involved in the planning by encouraging them to do Web searches and participate in teen discussion pages on many of the family travel sites.
  • You'll all have a better time if you give your teen some of the privacy and leeway that adults are afforded when they travel, rather than doing things like relegating them to kids' tables come dinnertime.
  • In addition to online travel sites, associations like the AARP may offer more resources for seniors interested in vacationing with their grandchildren.
