Things to do before you leave for senior travel:

  • Confirm all travel reservations.
  • Check out the local weather conditions for where you are going.
  • Make sure that you have liquids and medications properly stored for travel, and be sure that you have enough for the duration of your trip.
  • Leave phone numbers of where you can be reached and travel itinerary with someone.
  • Make a copy of traveler’s checks and leave a copy at home.
  • Secure your home if it will be vacant, and ensure that everything is locked (windows, doors, garage, etc) and leave a spare key with a neighbor or nearby family member – do not leave key under a mat!
  • If you will be out of town for an extended period of time, you should stop your newspaper delivery and have the post office temporarily stop mail delivery.
