Women Travel Differently


Women Travel Differently
By Kaleel

Do women want something different from men when they travel?

Apparently USA Today thinks so.  In an article “Where the boys are not” 88% of women surveyed said they had plans for a no-men-allowed getaway. 

And these are not Desperate Housewives either.

To accommodate them, a five-star hotel in London features 68 rooms in a wing for women only and uses just female room service staff.

Fairmont hotels often offers  “Ladies only Pajama Party Weekends,” and “Girlfriend Getaway” trips.

So, what do women travelers want that guys don’t?

A lot, says one Fairmont executive.

She says that women like to shop much more than their male partners do, and unless the guys find something equally satisfying, there could be some travel tension.

Another travel consultant noticed that women seem more relaxed, energized after a weekend  of women-only conversation and activity.

One misperception was quickly dispelled:  It seems women don’t just travel alone because they have no partner. They just want time with other women!

And the travel industry apparently hears them. New, creative women’s-only travel deals are increasing, from Mother and Daughter get-aways, to adventure travel weekend trips for women only.
