2023 will be the year of solo female travel, research seeks to confirm

Solo Female Travelers launches its third annual survey on travel trends and expects to confirm that COVID related barriers to travel are behind us and interest in traveling solo is higher than ever.

The 2022 edition of the Solo Female Travel Trends Survey replicates previous years’ format and aims to collect 5,000 responses from participants from all over the world.

Results from the 2020 survey revealed 64% of women worry about their safety traveling solo and this was their number one concern. In 2021, changing travel restrictions due to COVID took the first spot.

These challenges do not stop the hundreds of thousands of women who take solo trips every year in search of freedom and flexibility, personal growth and a boost to their confidence.

“Interest in female solo travel is back at 2019 levels and the uncertainty brought in by the pandemic is behind us; we expect the concerns and motivations of women traveling solo to revert to safety and self-actualisation respectively”, says Meg Jerrard, Co-Founder of Solo Female Travelers.

The survey is the largest global research piece on solo female travel and is read by thousands of industry professionals, researchers, tourism company executives and destination management teams every year. The findings are published on International Women’s Day every year and help shape policy and travel products for women globally.

“We realised most travel and tourism companies do not understand what women traveling on their own really want and as a result make incorrect assumptions based on old stereotypes; we want to provide unbiased data to help them better serve us”, adds Solo Female Travelers Co-Founder Mar Pages.

The survey will remain open until the 21st of December 2022 and participants stand a chance to win $1,000 USD in cash split into four prizes of $250 USD. A winner will be picked at random every week.
