Do You Care About Safety?
Traveling solo as a woman requires the courage
to overcome worries about personal safety.
42% of women who haven’t traveled solo cite the fear of something happening to them as the reason for not traveling on their own.
Let’s let that sink in … almost half of women who would like to travel solo don’t, due to fear of safety.
Among those who have already ventured out on their own, 73% still worry about their safety.
While experience traveling solo reduces this fear from 79% among women who have taken less than 5 solo trips to 64% for those who have traveled more than 10 times on their own, this is still a staggering insight.
The majority of Solo Female Travelers, regardless of their travel experience,
worry about personal safety while traveling alone.
As such, we provide the following resources to EMPOWER WOMEN
to travel safely, on their own.
