JourneyWoman Women’s Travel Safety Survey

Last updated on April 14th, 2021

Travel Safety: Staying Safe on the Road

JourneyWoman has provided women with solo travel safety tips for almost 28 years.

We’d like to get your thoughts on women’s travel safety to help us develop editorial and events that will be most helpful to you. We’ll also share the results to help other women.

– Have you ever felt threatened or been attacked while travelling?

– Where?

– What did you do?

– Do you feel you have the right skills to define yourself?

This survey takes about 5 minutes and individual results are confidential.

Thank you!

Don’t miss our Women’s Travel Safety event on Thursday, April 15 where we’ll share the result and provide you with expert tips to stay safe on the road.
