Road Scholar Trip Protection Plan with “Cancel for Any Reason” Coverage

Road Scholar is pleased to offer its Trip Protection Plan as a way to protect your program investment. You may purchase this optional trip protection plan when enrolling in your program. By purchasing this plan you will be protected in case ...

You need to cancel your program for a covered reason

As you know, unexpected things can happen after enrolling in a program: medical problems arise; family members or traveling companions become ill; your home could be impacted by a natural disaster. If you need to cancel your trip for these or other covered reasons, the Trip Cancellation benefit reimburses you not only for Road Scholar cancellation penalties but also your unused transportation arrangements including airfare costs, even if you purchased your airfare independently.

You must cancel your program for a reason not covered by the plan (“Cancel for Any Reason”)

If you need to cancel your trip for any reason not covered by insurance, you’ll receive a credit good for future travel with Road Scholar for the full amount of the Road Scholar cancellation fee.

You need to leave your program early

During a program, accidents, illnesses or other unforeseen emergencies—whether they happen to you, your traveling companion, or a member of your or your traveling companion’s immediate family, may cause you to miss a portion of your program or return home earlier than expected. Road Scholar cannot issue refunds to participants for program days missed due to accidents, injuries, illnesses, or other emergencies; however, if you purchase the Trip Protection Plan, you will be reimbursed for program days you miss due to a covered event.

You are delayed going to or returning home from your program

These days, with increasing frequency, air travel is impacted by weather or mechanical problems. The resulting delays could not only delay your arrival to the program but cause you to incur additional expenses while catching up to the program. The Travel Delay/Missed Connection benefit will reimburse you for additional expenses you incur to catch up to the program, including transportation, accommodation and meal expenses.

You need to change or cancel your airfare whether purchased through Road Scholar or independently

Another great benefit of the plan is that it covers the cost of your airfare, whether you purchase your airline tickets with Road Scholar or independently. Even though the plan cost is based on your Program Price, your airfare is protected, too. 

The optional Road Scholar Trip Protection Plan helps protect your investment if you must cancel or interrupt your program for specified, covered reasons, such as illness or injury to you, your traveling companion or an immediate family member of you or your traveling companion. Plus, if you need to cancel your program for any reason not covered by insurance, you will receive a credit good for future travel with Road Scholar for the full amount of the Road Scholar cancellation fee. The plan also provides benefits if you are delayed getting to or returning home from your program and protects your investment should you have an emergency during your program that causes you to miss program days or return home earlier than expected. Your airfare, whether purchased through Road Scholar or independently, is covered — an exceptional benefit and value offered exclusively to Road Scholar participants.
