Best Group Travel Destinations for the Solo Female Traveler
Travel safer, create lifelong connections and see the world.
Traveling alone can be a little intimidating. Traveling by yourself as a woman can be, well, even more anxiety-inducing. Many solo female Travelers have concerns about planning big trips by themselves, dining alone and, of course, staying safe in faraway places. But solo travel is freeing in ways you can’t experience unless you’ve actually traveled by yourself. Being on your own in a foreign land allows you connect with countries and cultures in ways you never thought possible.
That’s why solo-booked travel groups have become so popular recently. In fact, solo female travel has exploded over the past few years. According to the George Washington School of Business, nearly ⅔ of today’s Travelers are women. Condor Ferries says the search volume for the term ‘female solo travel’ has increased nearly 62% over the past 3 years. Not only that, but 32 million American women traveled solo at least once over the past year.
If you’re a woman who wants to travel solo, but some destinations seem unattainable for whatever reason, we’d strongly encourage you to opt for group travel. In fact, it's estimated that in 2020 nearly 80% of TrovaTrip Travelers booked solo. Come for the adventures, stay for the friends and lifelong connections.
