Why should boys have all the fun? I am sure you have all heard this, as you grew up watching Bollywood actresses such as Alia Bhatt or Priyanka Chopra endorse the Hero range of two-wheelers for women. Well, we women are entitled to have our share of fun as well! I am sure you are fed up with watching your guy – friends going on trips with their pack while you just look at their pictures and wish for the same.
You need not just watch anymore as times are fast-changing and becoming much better for us women to go out there and let the world watch as we claim our share of fun! Women have preferred to stay behind without feeding their adventurous selves for one main reason – safety. To cast away those worries or insecurities, organizers have come up with women exclusive travel groups as an apt solution. Here is a list of highly-rated and recommended travel groups to look out for.
‘If you love travelling, you’re one of us’. This is one of the first things you will notice as you open the website of Byond Travel. True, isn’t it? Among all the ways people come closer, travel is something that naturally bonds people together. And what better way than a gang of girls tripping all over! Byond stands true to its name; the trips organised here extend beyond the nation’s borders and allows women to choose from more than 50 countries to explore.
This Bangalore based company kicked off in 2014 and since then has helped women to visit different lands, explore their music, arts, food, culture and people. The community is growing steadily, with around 40,000 members currently. You can forget all your worries about safety as Byond makes sure each woman feels safe and comfortable throughout her holiday.
‘Women, be bold. Wander the universe’. This is what the founder of the WOW club, Sumitra Senapaty, has to say to women. She has personally travelled to different countries and personally curated itineraries to offer women the best authentic experience. WOW club also customises trips for your girl gang based on your convenience. You can choose your holiday themes like adventure, wildlife, spirituality, leisure or culture.
A unique feature of this organiser is that they also offer tailor-made itineraries for women who want to explore solo! What could be perfect than detaching yourself from everyday life, discovering foreign lands and rediscovering yourself? However, the trips are limited within India only. Don’t let that stop you from checking out their website as India is immensely beautiful and I am sure you will be baffled at what our country has in store for us.
Wovoyage caters to women from all over the world with offices in India, Japan and Australia. They aim to empower women to travel the world in a safer, comfortable and more personalised way. With their campaign #aloneican, they hope to break age-old stereotypes that have restricted women for ages and hope to shatter such ideas by curating travel experiences exclusively for women. They offer a good variety of travel options within India and the world as well. However, most of the destinations are limited to Asia; they do have packages for other countries like Egypt, Tanzania and Dubai.
