ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.

Just booked for June 25. My first trip to Ireland. Any other singles going?
Shirley Hill Feb 27, 2015 at 06:12 PM

Hi Margaret. I am also going on June 25 and my first trip to Ireland also. I will be arriving before the trip starts, and will be staying at the Park Inn by Raddison on the night of the 25th. I am also a single.

Trip insurance is a complicated subject! There are three basic types of insurance: 1. cancellation insurance, like the Berkley ins. offered through Road Scholar for about 10% the cost of the trip; 2. medical insurance while traveling, which Road Scholar includes automatically, and 3. medical evacuation insurance, which, per my reading of the Road Scholar ins. policy, is not included.
You'll need to decide what is most important for your folks based on where they are going, etc. AARP has some informative articles on the insurance issue.
Frankly, it's hard to make a good financial argument for cancellation insurance; the amount you can lose is finite, and it is a loss you can recover from. That said, I buy it because I'd fuss myself into the grave if I didn't.
If your parents travel a lot, it might be useful to get a Medicare supplemental that covers overseas medical care, and maybe even a separate evacuation ins. policy.

I have been on 22 RS programs and purchased insurance every time. I have had only one claim from a trip last summer and I had no problem with Berkley Insurance which is not owned by Elderhostel as far as I know (as they sell insurance to many others). Cost is based on a % of the program cost so it varies by program. You can see the expected cost for each program on RS web site in the information for each program. My one claim was for overnight stay due to problems with Southwest Airlines and SW would not pay for hotel room in Burbank California for my granddaughter and myself. I had not purchased the air travel thru RS but Berkley still reimbursed me for the $300 hotel room which was all SW could locate for us on a busy Friday night in the summer.

I am looking to buy trip insurance as my parents are in precarious health and there may be a chance I would need to cancel my trip. I have read that it is NOT a good idea to buy trip insurance from the actual trip sponsor. Any comments from people who have purchased insurance from Road Scholar or elsewhere and please give ballpark figure of cost.

Enrolled in the Jul 9 - Jul 23, 2015 trip with my daughter, Julie. Anyone else going then?


Cary Benson Sep 25, 2014 at 06:16 PM

Hi
Leaving next Thursday, 10/2 for Ireland from Newark airport. Anyone else on that plane?
Cary and Dirck
Dana Winslow Sep 26, 2014 at 09:20 AM

We are on the same plane you are--see you there!


Jerry Banks Sep 17, 2014 at 06:54 PM

Jean, thanks for the tip about the hop-on-hop-off bus. These are fabulous ways to see a city in a hurry.


Jean Feinstein Sep 13, 2014 at 03:44 PM

Carla: You have a free day in Dublin to spend as you wish. I suggest you take a tourist Hop On/Hop Off bus. One of the stops is at the Guinness Brewery where you can take a tour, shop, and have a free beer. No reservations are needed.
CARLA LIBERDA Sep 13, 2014 at 04:23 PM

Thanks. I appreciate the helpful details.
