Cancellation Fee Credit Terms

In the event you choose to cancel your trip for a non-insured reason at any time up to and including the day your Road Scholar program begins, and you have purchased the Road Scholar Trip Protection Plan and are eligible for the Cancellation Fee Credit benefit credit, you will receive a Road Scholar credit equal to 100% of the pre-paid non-refundable Road Scholar cancellation fees imposed for your use toward a future Road Scholar program.

  1. The Road Scholar Cancellation Fee Credit benefit provides a credit good for future travel with Road Scholar equal to 100% of the pre-paid, non-refundable Road Scholar program cancellation fees if the reason for canceling your enrollment is not covered by insurance.
  2. The Road Scholar Cancel for Any Reason Credit Feature applies only to transfer and cancellation fees assessed by Road Scholar; it does not apply to independently-purchased airfare or any other costs incurred by participants arising from the cancellation of their enrollment.
  3. To be eligible for the Cancel for Any Reason Credit Feature, participants must purchase the plan up to and including Final Payment Date, or within 5 days of enrollment, whichever is later. After this deadline has passed, while participants may still purchase the Road Scholar Trip Protection Plan, they will not be eligible for the Cancel for Any Reason Credit Feature; participants will only be eligible for the plan’s insured benefits (e.g., cancellation due to covered reasons such as injury, sickness, death of the insured and family members and traveling companions).
  4. If canceling for a reason not covered by insurance, to qualify for the Cancellation Fee Credit benefit, participants must call Road Scholar Participant Services to cancel their enrollment on or prior to the day their program begins. Business hours are M-F, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. ET. To cancel, call toll free at (877) 426-8056.
  5. The entire value of a credit must be used for program(s) that start within 15 months of the date of the issue of the credit, but no later than 18 months after the date the program was cancelled. No refunds will be given for any credits that remain unused after this time. 
  6. Cancellation Fee Credits can be applied toward:
    • Road Scholar program deposits.
    • Road Scholar program price.
    • International airfare arranged by Road Scholar for our international programs, with the exception of special or restricted fares.
    • Road Scholar cancellation/transfer fees
  7. Credits are non-transferable and non-refundable, and cannot be extended, renewed or redeemed for cash.
  8. Certain restrictions on the use of credits may apply.
