Road Scholar’s Solo Travel Report: 2023 Trend in Solo Senior Travel

Nonprofit Road Scholar serves 80-100,000 adults over 50 each year. This pool of people offers a valuable wealth of data and information that can illuminate trends in the interests and behavior of senior travelers.

We are excited to share that we have just completed a study using data from our pool of participants, focusing on the community of 20-30,000 solo senior who travel with us annually. A fascinating trend emerged from this data study: the majority of seniors who travel solo are married but travel without their spouses.

Learn more about how we collected this data, find out the top reasons that married seniors said they travel without their spouses, and join us in considering what this trend says about the Baby Boomer generation.
