Solo Travelers

Are Road Scholar programs popular with solo travelers?

We are trusted and well known for offering a warm and welcoming atmosphere for couples and solo participants alike, particularly solo female travelers. The atmosphere you’ll find is of learning in the company of a small group of individual friends, rather than traveling with a collection of couples. And you very likely won’t be the only person without a partner; nearly 1 in 4 of our participants go solo. 


Is it possible to have a single room?

Yes! Nearly all of our programs offer you the option to have a room to yourself. Since you won’t be splitting the cost of the room with someone else, you’ll  likely have to pay a little more. However, we do have many special offers where single rooms are at no extra cost.


I’m enrolling on my own, but would like to share a room with a friend. What do I do?

If you are enrolling online, select the double room option. Then a few clicks later we’ll ask if you have someone you’d like to room with. If you are enrolling with us over the phone, just mention that you’d like to share your room with a friend. We’ll take it from there!


Do you have any tips for solo travelers?

Yes! See our page for solo travelers. It includes tips, videos and profiles of Road Scholars who like to go it alone.
