Travel Guru Peter Greenberg Signs on as AARP Travel Editor at Large

AARP, the largest membership organization for people 50+, today announced that renowned travel expert Peter Greenberg has signed on to become AARP's new travel editor at large. In addition to his current duties as the Travel Editor for NBC's Today Show, Greenberg will now also provide travel expertise and advice as well as original content to AARP's members via the organization's publications, Web site and major local and national events.

Perhaps best known for his contributions on NBC's Today Show, Greenberg is also the author of the New York Times bestselling Travel Detective series. His latest book is the Complete Travel Detective Bible. Among his many duties as travel editor at large, Greenberg will serve as travel editor at large for AARP The Magazine and write a bi-monthly travel column titled "The Contrarian Traveler."

He will also record audio pod casts of columns and features for the web site, along with an online Q&A column. Additionally, members will be able to access a weekly "AARP travel minute" online, as well as 15 minutes of weekly highlights from Peter's nationally syndicated radio program, now heard on more than 150 stations across the U.S. Topics will range from tips and tricks on how to get the most from your airline to which brochures don't tell the truth, to how to fight back against undisclosed surcharges and fees, to experiential pieces on everything from unusual hotel services to the boom in culinary travel.

During a "Wealth-Seeking" seminar, I was approached by several people who were rather surprised to hear there are services for travelers that promote health, safety, provide information and pre-travel screening plus offer a medical evacuation package, all in one.

There are services like International SOS, Europe Assist...and meny more, but most family physicians do not know what to do with a traveler.

Children and seniors should never leave home without a health protection package.

AARP has published some information on travel...but even though it is a publication for many of us have grand and great grand kids who accompany us on trips?

How can we become a source of information to your readers/members? We would be very happy to present some ideas and do a few speaking engagements.

Thanks Mr. Greenberg for your very interesting writings.
