Solo travel deals to help women take the first step


This month, we bring you July’s best solo travel deals from our partners in our Women’s Travel Directory. These tours are designed for women by women — so you can be sure they understand your unique needs and thirst for new adventures.

It’s never too late to get started in solo travel. The thought of taking that first step into solo travel can create a lot of anxiety, particularly if you haven’t travelled a lot or without a partner.

Most JourneyWoman readers recommend taking a woman-friendly group tour, particularly if you’re feeling anxious or aren’t sure where to start. There are many women-owned and women-led group tours that create safe travel experiences for women and create environments that push and challenge a woman’s sense of adventure, with less ego and less competitiveness.

As a solo traveler, feeling safe is important. Many men will never truly appreciate the potential dangers we face, and women feel safer with other women. When we feel safe, we can push our boundaries and fuel our freedom and independence. Surrounding yourself with women can be empowering and educational

We also want to remind you how important it is to purchase travel insurance. Check prices on insuremyflight.com.

Join me on the Croatia September 2023 tour where we stay in 3* and 4* hotels each night and head out most days by catamaran or ferry or speedboat to our next stunning destination. We start in Zagreb with a welcome dinner and your own room for the first night.

Highlights of the Croatia September 2023 tour will be a walk around the Plitvice Lakes. You cannot miss a visit to the Plitvice Lakes which comprises 16 terraced lakes joined by waterfalls! Nor a day’s visit to the Blue Cave from Hvar Island and a cookery class with a Chef in Split. Of course, lunch would not be complete without trying Croatian wines.

And much more ladies. Come join a small group of women and share the wonder of this beautiful destination on the Croatia September 2023 tour.
