Questions & Answers

How many winners will there be?
There are seven prizes, and so there will be seven winners.

How will you announce the winners and when?
We’ll announce the winners in early January 2025 and will notify them via email or phone. The winners will also receive a special catalog, with the notification of their prize as a letter in the catalog.

Suppose I win one of the programs, but I have already taken it or don’t want to go on that particular program?
If you don’t want to attend the program you win, we’ll give you a voucher equal to the value of that prize, and you may apply it to any Road Scholar program of your choice. 

What if I am not physically able to participate in the program I win?
If you aren’t physically capable of participating in the program you win, we’ll give you a voucher equal to the value of that prize and you may apply it to any Road Scholar program of your choice. 

Who is eligible to participate?
Road Scholar’s Great Global Giveaway is open to residents of the United States who are 50 and older.

How do I enter?
Any legal resident of the United States age 50 or over who is already on Road Scholar’s active mailing list or who joins the mailing list during the giveaway period will be automatically entered into the giveaway.  Additionally, anyone on the mailing list who adds eligible friends and family members to Road Scholar’s mailing list during the giveaway period will be automatically entered into the giveaway for each successful referral.  To be successful, the person referred must not already be on Road Scholar’s list.

If I win, will I have to travel in 2025?
No, you will have two years from the date of notification to attend the program you win, or a substitute if you so elect. If you haven’t traveled on your program within that period, you will forfeit your prize.

What are the program prizes and their value?
Here are the seven prizes and their approximate values. The prize amounts are based on two people traveling and staying together in a double-occupancy room, including airfare from a major gateway airport: African Safari: A Close-up on Wildlife ($13,500); “Land Ho!” Icebergs and Penguins in Otherworldly Antarctica ($25,000); The People of the Mekong: Vietnam, Cambodia and Angkor Wat ($10,000), Discover a Land Down Under: Melbourne, Adelaide & Sydney ($12,000); French Art Voyage: Paris, the Rhône and the French Riviera ($13,000); The Best of the Grand Tetons to Banff: Iconic National Parks ($13,500); South American Odyssey: Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Machu Picchu & More ($17,500).
