Why our solo travel newsletter is different

1. JourneyWoman readers have decades of solo travel experience 

As the original solo travel publication, founded in 1994, JourneyWoman has almost 30 years of solo travel experience. Our readers tend to be women over 50 who have travelled the world for decades and willingly share their wisdom with others who are looking to take the first step into solo travel, regardless of age. 

2. We believe all women should have access to solo travel information

We have a different business model than other websites, because of our 30-year history in women’s solo travel and our belief that all women should have access to information about safe solo travel.  We don’t charge for our editorial or ask women to pay a membership fee to access our articles. Simply by joining our mailing list, you become a member!

We are a small team of women, in service to women — and our editorial is written by women, for women. We also accept a limited number of guest writers in addition to our regular contributors.

3. Our website and editorial is oriented to women-friendly companies 

We are not a non-profit and support our solo travel newsletter and our website through partnerships with the women-friendly businesses listed in our Women’s Travel Directory, pay-what-you-can events and webinars, brand partnerships and our new JourneyWoman store.

Unlike other media sites, we have deliberately resisted putting advertising on our editorial features because it detracts from your reading experience. There is, however, limited advertising on our tips pages which tend to be product oriented. We receive a small commission at no cost to you when our readers purchase products mentioned on our site such as clothing, books or travel gear. All products mentioned on our site have been recommended and /or used by our readers.

4. For every new subscriber to our solo travel newsletter, we plant a tree  

We’ve partnered with Tree and are donating a tree for every new subscriber to our magazine, so by joining you are helping reforest the Earth. We also donate proceeds from our merchandise and webinars to non-profits throughout the year. It’s part of our business model.
