Women go solo
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%.
