Women Helping Women Reach the Top

As travel returns, women favor intimate group trips to bucket list destinations with a purpose.

Solo Female Travel Survey: 73% of Women Worry About Safety, 23% Distrust Influencers.

The first of three instalments from the 2020 Solo Female Travel Trends Survey reveals that women travel solo for many reasons, indisputably worry about safety, trust others like them but distrust influencers. To address the safety challenge, Solo Female Travelers launched a women-only Safety Index and Empowerful, the first Solo Female Travel Safety, Wellness and Sexual Wellbeing Festival.

What women traveling solo want is not shopping or pictures for the gram but culture, beauty and nature.

The second round of results from the 2020 Solo Female Travel Trends Survey released on International Women’s Day reveals that solo female travelers dream of going to Greece, Japan, Australia and Italy, pick a destination based on culture, safety and nature and are not interested in shopping or Instagram worthy shots. 5,000 female respondents urge the travel industry to stop using outdated and irrelevant stereotypes of what women like to do when traveling solo.
