You are never too old to set a new goal or to dream a new dream
Live Life To The Fullest
In a world where senior citizens are generally excluded from ‘normal’ activities such as travel (because of lack of amenities) our solution is unique in its approach to inclusivity – ensuring that this section of society has equal access and opportunity to travel with complete ease and peace of mind. Offbeat Roads India is committed to implementing the right way to travel for Sr. Citizens by providing end-to-end solutions such as:
Accessibility-friendly Accommodation. We carefully select properties that are either pre-designed to or can be altered to cater to the needs of our guests.
Travelling Caretaker on board: We have a trained nurse/ caretaker during the entire duration of the trip, who expertly understands the needs of our guests, instilling a sense of confidence and comfort in them.
Medical Assistance: Our guests’ medical care and safety is a primary priority for us. We request and record their medical requirements pre-travel and meticulously keep track of their medical schedules. Whenever necessary, we carry oxygen cylinder and nebulizers along with us. We have a team member trained in first aid care on board at all times. No matter where we may be in our itinerary, all the emergency numbers, hospital lists in the vicinity are available with us at all times. We also take care of insurance requirements during the travel.
Easy pace: Keeping the unique lifestyle requirements of our guests (senior citizens and differently abled) in mind, we design our travel packages so as to not over-pack our trips with too many things to do, thus ensuring a relaxed and leisurely pace of traveling.
Custom-fitted Assistance: We design our administrative travel teams as per the specific requirements of our guests. For instance, a person well-versed in sign language will accompany guests with hearing and speech challenges. This way the guests can communicate easily with the rest of the group as well as with locals, having an authentic travel experience.
Comfortable & safe transport services: It goes without saying that safe transportation for all guests is a priority for us. All our vehicles drive in accordance with set speed limits. We ensure regular comfort breaks during the journey along with soothing music.
Addressing concerns: From the very beginning, well before the trip commences we educate and clear the doubts our guest has regarding the trip

Mental Benefits of Travel
Things like navigating new cities, exploring museums, having conversations with new people, practicing new languages and seeing new sights can flex the mental muscles, keeping seniors’ brains active and engaged.
Physical Benefits of Travel
Seniors can also benefit from the physical activity that often accompanies travel. Whether it’s walking around museums, jaunting around new cities to see the sights or taking public transport, there are lots of physical challenges that accompany travel. These challenges can help keep seniors healthy and in shape, so long as they don’t push themselves too hard. – A paper titled “Destination Healthy Aging: The Physical, Cognitive and Social Benefits of Travel”
