Women make over 80% of all travel decisions
JourneyWoman ranks in the top 15 travel websites globally
Women have trusted us for almost 30 years to decide…
Where will I go this year? Which company will I travel with? Where will I buy my travel equipment, travel books and travel clothes?
Journeywoman has been in business since 1994 — almost 30 years – and is known as a pioneer in the women’s travel industry.
If there is one thing we know as travellers, it’s that we are all connected. The recent COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated this tenet in ways that will redefine how we travel and think about travel for years to come.
JourneyWoman is a community of women who love to travel and share a common set of values and interests, in service to those of us who want to experience our world – authentically – on our own terms. We passionately advocate authentic travel as a core principle formed by the vision of Evelyn Hannon, echoed by the chorus of thousands of JourneyWoman who are guided by belief that we all can make the world a better place.
We reach over 100,000 women travellers via our Journeywoman newsletter and social media channels.
A September 2019 survey reveals much about the JourneyWoman community:
✤ Extremely loyal community with 62% belonging 5+ years
✤ Passionate about travel with 72% taking 5+ trips a year
✤ Globetrotters to every continent
✤JourneyWoman travellers are independent and self-directed: Approximately 50% travel solo and 25% are accompanied by a spouse or partner
✤About half of all JourneyWomen are in the USA, and 37% in Canada. Our Community is growing rapidly in Australia, the UK, Ireland, and India.
✤Most of our readers are between 55-74 years old, with a growing audience in the 45+ age group
✤ Our readers truly care about the Earth, and support responsible travel
This is what the press and our advertisers say about JourneyWoman
Over the years, more than 125 media outlets, from the New York Times to People Magazine, have showered us with praise.

We have made a conscious decision to LIMIT advertising on our beautiful website, in sharp contrast to many other travel websites, because we believe that our community wants authenticity. However, we do have many other ways to connect you with female decision-makers in a way that is honest, real and genuine.

How you can become part of the JourneyWoman movement
To build strong relationships with our partners and help present their products and services in a strategic way, we’ve designed a different kind of Partnership Model that reinforces our commitment to you, and your to our community. Our Model is based on an annual membership fee, which includes a year-long listing in the JourneyWoman Women’s Travel Directory. As a team with a long history in marketing and branding, we will work with each partner to ensure we are providing you the most strategic value for your hard-earned dollars!
As a small, women-owned and operated business, our ethos is to support other small businesses and female entrepreneurs. We also work closely with mid-sized and large travel companies offering multiple tours to multiple locations, and with travel-related product brands and services.
Criteria for Inclusion
We ask all of our partners to align with our criteria for Authentic Travel: As our world faces unprecedented challenges, the time has come to take action and help protect our world for future generations by travelling authentically.
