Exploritas Changes Name to Road Scholar

By June 19, 2010

Follow me on:

Exploritas, founded as Elderhostel in 1975, is changing its name to Road Scholar.

The company is making this change because of confusion over the Exploritas name and trademark. Elderhostel began using the Road Scholar name, which it trademarked in 1992, in 2002 to describe its small group travel experiences. Now, the Road Scholar name is being expanded to cover all of the Exploritas / Elderhostel programs.

Road Scholar offers travel and learning experiences for adults (and, on occasion, their grandchildren). Road Scholar offers scholarships that can offset part of the cost of your learning adventure.
