Traveling the Globe Has Never Been So Easy for Older Women

Everyone wants to get the most for their money – and that means everything, whether you’re buying a large item, shopping… or planning a travel experience! Some of us are still working full-time or part-time and some are retired. Regardless, each of us is looking to maximize our money to get what we want at the best value.

When it comes
to travel, here are five reasons you will find great value on a Road
Scholar learning adventure

Experience Pays Off

With 45 years
of experience offering thousands of learning adventures in the U.S. and around
the world, Road Scholar has developed a loyal network of global partners and
works with those partners to negotiate the best possible rates for every aspect
of a Road Scholar learning adventure. As a result, participants get
behind-the-scenes experiences that would cost much more – or be difficult to
access – if you were to do it on your own.

Road Scholar Takes Care of the Details So You Don’t Have

There is peace
of mind in knowing that you don’t have to worry about planning your days. Road
Scholar’s expert lecturers and study leaders will bring you to must-see
destinations, explore in-depth topics and lead excursions and field trips that
bring local culture, history or learning to life. Every learning adventure

  • Most meals
  • All lodging
  • Tips and taxes
  • Behind-the-scenes experiences
  • Expert lectures
  • Group expeditions and listening devices

Special Offers – Free Airfare

Don’t let the
cost of getting to a particular destination prevent you from hitting the road
on a learning adventure. Road Scholar has a team dedicated to travel services
and can coordinate your air travel as well. And on select programs, Road
Scholar includes free air as part of the program cost. You can search through
the international, U.S. & Canada, and ship-based learning adventures that include
free air as a special offer

Solo Travel for Older Women is Easier (and Safer!) Than

You want to
hit the road but may be hesitating because you’re heading out on your own. With
Road Scholar, traveling solo does not mean you’re traveling alone. And it
doesn’t mean you have to pay more for a single…you have options for single
rooms at no extra cost

Road Scholar’s
programs are designed to foster camaraderie, from activities to meals and
everything in between. Thousands of travelers venture solo on a Road Scholar
learning adventure and learn something new – whether on a new topic or about
themselves – and make friendships that last a lifetime.

Programs with
no extra cost for singles include a nine-day Taste
of Costa Rica
, almost two weeks on The
Best of Croatia aboard a floating classroom
, choose your own pace Hiking in
Virginia and more.

Or you can
always opt to share a room. Just choose the roommate option and you will be
paired up with a roommate in a double room. Like in college, it’s very common
for roommates to end up lifelong friends!

Money Matters

Travel is an
investment in an enriching experience. Road Scholar requires a small deposit at
the time of enrollment and your final balance is due closer to your departure

How often or
how much you’d like to pay in between that time is up to you. Some Road
Scholars have found it easiest to pay down the balance in smaller amounts as
they approach their departure.

Do you have
any fun travel adventures planned? Where are you going and with whom?
