Life is challenging. Travel is challenging. And, unfortunately it can be worse for women, for an endless supply of reasons. The interest in solo travel continues to rise worldwide, especially among women. Research by Norwegian Cruise Line has found that one in three travelers prefers to travel solo, and older women in particular are driving the trend. And trouble-free travel should, without fail, be a sure and consistent experience for women, everywhere. But, of course, it’s not.
According to internal research by travel network Virtuoso, the greatest increase in solo travel in 2022 came from women aged 65 and older. While they accounted for only 4% of solo travelers in 2019, they made up 18% of solo travelers in 2022. Fortunately, there are some countries that are safer for women to travel.
