Flying solo | Priyanka Juneja, Founder of Hera Travel

We embarked on an adventure of our own to explore how the travel industry has become more inclusive for women.

There’s something uniquely exhilarating about stepping foot off a plane into a foreign country when you’re completely solo. The world is well and truly at your oyster, and with no restraints or expectations from others, you’re free to explore this new land as you please. But travelling alone is like Marmite, particularly for women – you either love it, hate it, or have never tried it. 


Those who find themselves in the latter category may fall into the trap of believing that travelling solo means days spent in absolute solitude and nights fearing for your safety – but that does not have to be the case. From female-only travel companies to hotels that reserve an entire floor for women, we explore how the travel industry has put ladies first.
