Solo female travel in a post-pandemic world
The Solo Female Travel Trends Survey 2021 launches today with the objective to continue giving women who travel on their own a voice in the travel industry and understand the impact the pandemic had on travel behaviors and needs.
As travel returns, women favor intimate group trips to bucket list destinations with a purpose. In honor of International Women’s Day 2022 and in collaboration with the Tanzania Women Guide Foundation, Solo Female Travelers will take women to the top of Africa on an all-female guide, porter and trekker team.
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not interested in shopping or Instagram worthy shots. 5,000 female respondents urge the travel industry to stop using outdated and irrelevant stereotypes of what women like to do when traveling solo.
