Women travelers, both business and leisure are enjoying getting out and about in the world.  Listed below are some of the most popular Women Travel sites on the web.  Some of the on-line travel agencies have a section for Women Travelers.  Most of them also have a message board that let travelers leave messages.

A growing women travel segment is girl getaways which are travel experiences designed just for women such as weekend getaways of a few days or an all-girl adventure tour. There are also tours and experiences for women and their daughter. This type of women travel also goes by names, for example, like girlfriend getaways, gal getaways, all-girl getaways,
bachelorette parties, and all women travel.  See our box further down the page for some ideas about finding a girl getaway.

 Search the web.  Sometimes the quickest and easiest way to find a girlfriend getaway experience is just to search the web. Here are some tips:
  ● Key words to include:  girl getaway will give you way more hits than other term for this travel niche.  Use more qualifier words to narrow down your search- such as where you want to go (country, city, region, specific place), activity (surfing, painting, spa, horseback riding, adventure, hiking), type (tour, independent travel) when? (month/year or specific date ranges --- don't expect most websites to recognize anything other than the year perhaps!), length (weekend, week, 3 days) and age/relationship (mature, single, mother and daughter, etc.)  Example:  Galapagos Islands tour girl getaway.
  ● Google search:  here are some initial search terms to let you get an idea of what is out there.  Once you see the search results, just do another search by clicking in the search box and adding more key words.
