• Solo Travel Scares

    Solo Travel Scares

















    Ixtapan Spa, part of our Feb. 8 group. Single supplement for a whole week is only $170…

    Who isn’t at least a bit nervous when solo traveling? Even vets like myself from The Women’s Travel Group are more on edge when alone. You have to be watch your valuables, scan streets and be responsible for your movements. Compound this with the fact that women are statistically poor sleepers, worse in hotels than at home.…

  • Too Nervous to Travel?

    Too Nervous to Travel?


    Can travel be fun for Nervous Nellies? Yes for some. No for others. Let’s face it, some women just do better in their environment and home. Others yearn to travel but are scared of flying? Being a solo but in a group? Not being understood? Concerned about jet lag? About unusual food? and Yes about toilet access.

    Food and toilets are specifically women’s concerns. Food worries us since we are diet conscious and these days have more allergies: gluten, sugar, seeds, eggs, peanuts… Asking for a specific diet is as easy as forewarning our staff at The Women’s Travel Group.…

  • Share left on Cote D'Azur

    Our policy at The Women’s Travel Group is to offer share guarantees on our trips; if someone is not matched, they often get a no supplement single. What is the worst that can happen if you share?

    2- You might learn about new expensive habits that will cost you; that is how I learned about $$$ Frederic Fekkai hair products from travel mate.

    3- You might have to ask for a second room key?…

    Indecisive friends: URGHHH


    The photo is of a mansion in India where we stopped for a buffet lunch.

    Words of truth from The Women’s Travel Group.

    Here are the most common excuses friends use for avoiding your invitation to travel:

    Number 1    ‘Let me think about it’.    (time frame is ‘never’)

    Number 2   ‘Let me try to get an ff ticket’.   (that puts worth on you, your friendship is worth 50,000 miles or $550.)

    Number 3  ‘My family doesn’t want me to go’. …

    Five Ways WTGroup Women Helped Eachother







    A Hidden Benefit: How Women Help Each Other in Group Travels with The Women’s Travel Group.

    We thought you would enjoy hearing these five anecdotes:

    India:   When several of us had delayed baggage, others in the group immediately offered: socks, medicine, pj’s, even shoes! We lacked for nothing without even asking. Women are great that way, caretakers even on the road.

    Ixtapan:   One woman needed cash to pay for shopping (the resort is inclusive so no need for extra money there).…

  • The 'get rid of travel anxiety' pill

    A professor of psychology in California studied stress levels of people who watched excessive news reports about the Boston Marathon bombers.  She compared their anxieties against those of people who were at the Marathon.  Those who overdosed on news were much more stressed than those who attended the Marathon. The article where this study appeared is about the nation’s hysterical reaction to 2 cases of ebola on our shores.

    If you want to live a normal but adventure filled life, don’t watch the news on television.…
