BRITISH Air­ways has re­leased re­sults of its Global Solo Travel Study, re­veal­ing that more than half of women in­ter­viewed are choos­ing to travel solo.

The sur­vey, which in­cluded re­sponses from al­most 9,000 18-64 year olds across the UK, US, Brazil, France, Ger­many, Italy, In­dia and China, re­vealed that over 50% of women had trav­elled by them­selves in the past, while 75% of re­spon­dents said they were plan­ning a solo trip.

The “most ad­ven­tur­ous” women trav­ellers came from Italy, where 63% said they had ex­plored an­other coun­try alone, fol­lowed by 60% of Ger­man women.

US women were least in­clined to travel solo, at just 16%.
