New Buddy System for Seniors

Counting out seniors due to their age? One travel agent says think again. Travel agent Pat Hager noticed a problem when her clientele became reluctant to book vacations due to their age. After failing to find adequate services to help them, Hager decided to take matters into her own hands—launching a travel site for seniors to use to find a travel companion. With 237 regular users, the site has already helped many clients connect with travel companions. As the senior population continues to grow, Hager believes they are a strong demographic to support the travel industry. (Skift, 12.04.18)
