Hotels can often be the most expensive part of booking a trip. It’s not terribly hard to find a great deal on flights, but trying to find a reasonably priced hotel lately can feel like a lost cause.

Luckily, these hotel chains offer discounts to seniors (and a bit younger) – so if you meet any of the age requirements below, pack those bags! Just be sure to bring your ID as you will need to verify your senior status at check-in.

50 years of age and up

For discounts once you hit the half-century mark, some of the largest hotel chains in the U.S. offer a special rate if you are an AARP member. Joining AARP is only $1/month, but you can still get hotel discounts without the membership card (you just have to wait until you are 55+ for most of these deals).

Best Western

You can get 10% off the rate of a room (at minimum!) if you are an AARP member. Otherwise the offer extends to those 55 and older. For details visit bestwestern.com.

Choice Hotels

If you are 60+ or an AARP member, you’ll save up to 10% with advance reservations at hotels like the Radisson, Econolodge, MainStay Suites and 19 other brands in the Choice Hotels portfolio. Just select “Senior/AARP” from the special rate dropdown or request the Senior Rate when you call 800-4CHOICE (800-424-6423). Visit choicehotels.com/deals for more info.

Hilton

AARP members can save up to 10% off the best available rate. Non-members aged 65 and older and their families can save up to 7% off the best available rate at participating Hilton properties. A maximum of two rooms are bookable at this rate. For details visit hilton.com.
