Baby Boomers Embrace Travel - so Here comes the Boomer Travel Patrol
February 27th, 2014

Baby Boomers Embrace Travel -- So Here Comes the Boomer Travel Patrol

The #1 leisure activity for the baby boomer generation is travel and they spend $157 billion on trips each year. That caught the eye of Liz Dahl, a former travel agent and PR consultant who also happens to be a boomer. Noticing that most people contacting her were in her age group, she saw that advertisers were not talking to them. They covet the 18-49 age group, but we're the ones who control 70% of U.S. disposable income. Enter www.boomertravelpatrol.com

Liz gathered a team of fellow baby boomers that enjoyed or were engaged in various aspects of travel and created a website with this demographic's perspective. She teamed with Don Anderson, a fellow boomer and IT specialist and created a site that offers resources of travel information so the sixties generation can go to one site that doesn't sell anything, but provides an enormous amount of information in addition to the views of the Patrol.

The Patrol offers personal perspective and experiences and then invites the public to share their knowledge at the end of each review by contributing recommendations, tips and favorite places. Currently, the categories for the Boomer Travel Patrol are: Sports; Luxury; Off the Beaten Path; Pet; RV, Tour; Air; Hotel; Food; Island and Guest (which covers areas not covered by the Patrol). For instance, Air Patrol is Diane Diehl , who not only is a boomer, but an international flight attendant for a major airline. Liz is Hotel Patrol and Don's dog, Susie is Pet Patrol. Of course, Don is her voice. Blondee is Food Patrol and was the original cyberchef on the internet. Mark lives in England, is Sports Patrol and a Sports writer for London newspapers. All the Patrol's bios are on the website.

Another unique feature is a weekly Travel Crossword puzzle created for them by Myles Mellor, one of the most published crossword writers of all times. There are daily news feeds from around the world and information on virtually any place in the world this is truly a one stop resource guide.
