Questions & Answers for Solo Participants

Do many people enroll as solo participants?

Yes! On a typical Road Scholar adventure, there is a mix of couples and solo adventurers, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. First-time single participants tell us that they are surprised and pleased by the welcoming spirit of their programs.

As a single, will I have a roommate?

Single rooms are available on most programs. However, you may enroll as a single participant in a double room. The Program Provider will then assign you a roommate. We often hear from participants who say they look forward to attending Road Scholar programs because they are excited to meet new and friendly people who share similar interests. This kinship has resulted in many long-lasting friendships. In fact, many participants currently attend programs with friends whom they first met when they were assigned a room together on a previous program.

Is it possible to have a single room?

Yes, over 90% of the Road Scholar programs offer single accommodations at additional cost. We can't guarantee a single room for all of our programs, but if you request one, the program coordinator will make every attempt to accommodate you.

How can I find someone to room with?

We recommend you use the discussion board on your program's page on our website. Its a great way for all participants to meet each other before their program begins.
