One great way to reduce travel expenses is by taking advantage of available discounts. For senior citizens, that means you can typically find a great deal during any time of the year.
In this article, we’ll look at some popular hotels and chains that offer senior citizen discounts. I’ve followed up with each of these chains to verify the details of their senior discounts, but be sure to call before booking to check for any exclusions.
Hotels That Offer Senior Discounts
Each of the hotels and hotel chains listed below offer a senior citizen discount that can help you get a better price than advertised. If you haven’t yet met the required age but you’re an AARP member, be sure to mention that when booking. You may still be able to get the discount or sometimes a rate that’s better than the senior discount.
It’s worth noting here that the senior discount isn’t always the best available rate, so make sure to do your research.

More Ways To Save
For the best prices on hotels, Clark recommends booking online through a discount travel site.
Once you know when and where you’ll be traveling, take advantage of your senior discount on a refundable room. Then, check Priceline and Hotwire closer to when you’ll be traveling. If you find a better deal, cancel your original reservation.
