Give Yourself A Budget: Your holiday vacation doesn't have to break the bank! Simply decide on the type of accommodations that you'll enjoy and set aside a realistic budget. Be on the lookout for special hotel discounts such as senior discounts, best rate guarantees and vacation packages. Remember to pack your proof of age identity card and any senior club membership cards.

Plan Ahead: Whether your visiting family or taking off on your own, research your destination and remember to book online hotel reservations (http://www. daysinn. com/DaysInn/control/advanced_search? variant=caen) well in advance. Look for national hotel chains that cater to senior travel, such as Days Inn hotels with amenities including a free Daybreak Caf"reakfast at most locations and free high-speed Internet access.

Get Rewarded: Check with your hotel to see if they offer a loyalty rewards program travel, such as Wyndham Rewards. Now through January 8, 2009, Wyndham Rewards members who stay at participating Days Inn locations in Canada and the United States will earn Double Aeroplan Miles or Double Wyndham Rewards points for each hotel stay as part of the Double Points or Miles promotion.

Play It Safe: An important senior travel rule: pack any medications or prescriptions in your carry-on bag and bring along enough medication to last the entire trip. Visit your doctor to learn about potential travel health risks before you begin set out on your holiday vacation (http://www. daysinn. com/DaysInn/control/special_offers? variant=caen) and consider preparing a first aid kit for the road.

Security On The Road: Before departing, make sure you have adequate insurance coverage. Always carry your supplemental travel and health insurance policy with you and review all insurance requirements before you leave. Keep the telephone number of your insurer handy in case of emergency.

Stay Connected: It's a good idea to send your holiday vacation itinerary to a friend or relative so someone will always know your whereabouts. Be sure to carry a prepaid phone card or cell phone so you can keep in touch from the road.
