Amazon.com Review
One American turns 50 every 7.6 seconds, and here's a book that caters to the pocketbooks of this ever-increasing traveling population.

"Ten years ago when I wrote the first edition of Unbelievably Good Deals, active vacation and adventure trips were seldom offered to mature travelers," says author Joan Heilman. "Today, however, these readers, especially baby boomers who've just turned 50, are looking for action, and the book reflects that trend."

This complete compendium for senior discounts includes special offers for adventure travel; lifetime admission tickets to national parks; airfare specials; up to 50 percent off on hotels and restaurants; discounts for golf, tennis, and ski vacations; and trips, clubs and matchmaking services for singles. The book also offers advice on how to beat the cost of car rentals; save money on train, bus, and boat fares; find thrifty alternative lodgings all over the world; uncover the best shopping values; discover volunteering opportunities; and get the lowdown on going back to school.

The last chapter provides an overview of organizations for people over 50 and what they can offer, or what you can offer them. As the author points out, "When you consider that there are more people in this country over the age of 55 than there are children in elementary and high schools, you can see why we have powerful potential to influence what goes on around here." --Kathryn True
