Elderhostel -> Exploritas -> Roads Scholar

In case people don't know of this latest name change, Elderhostel, which became Exploritas about 6 months ago, has now changed its name to Roads Scholar. There was a challenge from another similarly named company about the name Exploritas. Same good programs, same helpful staff.

I got a letter from them explaining the name change, but I think the Exploritas name wasn't well received. During my last trip , the new name was routinely made fun of, by participants and staff.

Susie, I agree with that completely. I myself was disappointed with the choice. I hope they don't get challenged by the real Rhodes Scholar people because the Roads Scholar name rolls off the tongue much more pleasantly. We could be back to Elderhostel before you know it!!!
