Using AARP Travel to Conduct Research
When you know where you want to go, AARP Travel is one of many online services that can help you figure out how to get there and pre-plan the best possible trip. If you don’t yet know where you want to go, this service—for nonmembers and members—offers a quick, five-question quiz to help you choose travel destinations that match your interests. Anyone can use the site to conduct research, use travel tools, learn expert travel tips, and use the booking engine. You must be an AARP member to take advantage of member-only offers and discounts.
