With the majority of women now traveling “solo” as individuals, a key benefit of traveling “women-only” is immediately fitting into your group of fellow travelers as a solo traveler. Not having to deal with the male-female pair situations inherent in trips frequented by couples for example, means solo women are never the odd girl out, feeling like a third-wheel in as sea of couples. Newly single, divorced. and widowed women also point out that they really prefer not to be around couples when traveling. Solo women like meeting other women solo travelers and feel this is easier in a group setting vs when traveling alone independently. And many women point out that on a women-only trip, it is easy as a solo to get paired with another woman as a roommate thereby avoiding the dreaded “single supplement” and making the trip more affordable.
