Why a survey on Solo Female Travel Trends?

Despite women booking over 80% of travel and representing 54% of the hospitality industry jobs, little comprehensive research has been done on solo female travel trends, that means companies are simply offering what they think you want.

So why don’t we tell them what you actually want?

The 2020 survey was our first step towards normalising solo travel for women and providing the travel and tourism industry with invaluable insights to better serve us. We are committed to continue giving a voice to our community and amplifying the efforts of our peers and those with a shared vision with the 2021 edition.

The results from this year’s survey will be used in scholarly publications in collaboration with Dr. Elaine Yang from Griffith University, Australia.
