Once you retire it becomes so much easier to finally travel to those places you never had time or money to go to while supporting a whole family and tied to a corporate vacation schedule. Since most seniors are not tied to a schedule, it is significantly easier to get a good deal because of the ability to wait for those cheaper flights. In addition to the flexibility of timing as an advantage to travel expenses and what many seniors don’t know though is that travelers of sixty years of age or over can save on adult regular VIA rail fares in economy class. In addition, all passengers ages sixty-two and above receive a ten percent discount on any unrestricted Greyhound passenger fare. These cost savers can make traveling in your golden years considerably more affordable and those vacation destinations seem a little more within reach.
