What is solo female travel?

The term solo female travel generally refers to travelling alone, on a self-guided itinerary. But travelling solo doesn’t have to mean travelling alone, or indeed, under your own steam. Choosing small group travel offers you plenty of time and space to do your own thing, as well as the opportunity to meet like-minded fellow travellers. Plus – the peace of mind knowing that everything is taken care of by destination experts.

How to find female solo travel partners?

Our small group Women-Only Tours are the perfect way to find like-minded solo travel partners. Choose from 11 enriching and inspiring itineraries, where the experiences, destinations, ‘Business Class style’ transport and hand-picked 4- and 5-star hotels are all included. Get to know your fellow female travellers over dinners at top-rated restaurants, and through Insightful Encounters and meaningful MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences. You can also join our Insight Vacations Facebook group and meet fellow female travellers there.

Where is the best place to travel solo female?

Where you choose to go really depends on what you want from your vacation. Do you want to try somewhere new, step out of your comfort zone or maybe rediscover a place you’ve been before in a whole new light? With our Women-Only tours, we offer a wide variety of options, including Europe, America, India and Morocco, so there's something for everyone.

What size are the groups on Women-Only tours?

All Women-Only tours are small groups. The maximum group size is 24 but the average group size is 20.

How can a senior woman travel alone?

The key is to do what feels comfortable. There are many options based on individual preferences. We’ve found that senior female travellers enjoy tours for the camaraderie and added sense of security, plus a premium level of hotel, dining and comfort, and our Women-Only Tours are curated with all this in mind.

What is the safest country for solo females?

Primarily, the countries that women feel most secure in tend to be the ones that they are most familiar with. North America and Europe are great starting points. Both destinations have mature tourism industries that provide plenty of support to visitors. For destinations less familiar or more adventurous (hiking Machu Picchu, for example), a tour can help women feel more secure and confident.

Which country is the safest for solo female travellers in Europe?

Europe encompasses many different countries with different experiences. Overall, as a collection of mostly wealthy Western democracies, crime is low and travellers can feel safe. Scotland and Ireland are especially warm and welcoming, as are Italy and Spain. It is always advisable to check government advisories for travel and to travel smart, wherever your destination.

Will there be an all-women on-the-road team?

Our Women-Only tours will always be led by a female Travel Director and Local Experts. Your driver will also be a woman, where possible.

How many single occupancy rooms are available?

Due to the small size of our Women-Only tour groups, there will be plenty of single-occupancy rooms available. The only exception is our Splendours of Egypt Women-Only tour, where cabins are limited on the Nile cruise.
