Travel Styles

When planning your vacation it’s a good idea to know your preferred travel style so that you’ll enjoy your trip. However, there are several travel styles to choose from—including luxury vs budget, adventure vs wellness, immersive vs self-discovery, self-catering vs all-inclusive and so on. No one travel style fits everyone and no person fits just one travel style. My role as a solo female travel specialist is to discover which travel styles fit your needs, interests and preferences.

Travel Styles, Types and Categories

There are three categories or types of travel which encompass all travel styles. These are business, leisure and event travel. As a solo female travel specialist, my main focus is leisure travel.

Leisure travel encompasses just about every travel style you can think of. The number of travel styles is endless and depends on the criteria used (e.g. reason you’re travelling, who you’re travelling with, your budget, comfort level, interests, destination and so on), and who’s categorizing them.

Different travel writers and travel companies categorize travel styles differently depending on their travel niche. Many travel styles often overlap one other so when determining your own travel style, you could find yourself in more than one. For example, escorted group tours range from budget backpacking and active hiking tours to luxury wildlife and wilderness safaris or immersive cultural experiences.

One thing travel styles for solo female travellers is not usually about is your age, although some travel styles may be more preferable to certain age groups than others. Consequently, some tour operators may cater only to a specific age group (e.g. 18 to 30-something) or be more geared towards an age demographic that you are in.

As well, some travel companies focus on romance or family travel and exclude solo travellers. While my main focus is to help women 50+ who have no one to travel with experience the world safely, I’m happy to help women of all ages who are looking for safe travel experiences, whether travelling solo, with their partner, family or group of friends.

My role is to create a trip that encompasses all your travel styles (or as many as possible) and match your travel needs, interests and preferences with the right travel suppliers.

Do you know which travel styles fit your needs, interests and preferences?

As mentioned above, travel companies, tour operators and travel writers may categorize travel styles differently, they may break one travel style, such as Escorted Tours, into several other travel styles, while some travel styles may combine several other travel styles.

For example, Adventure Travel could be categorized as Active Adventure and Soft Adventure, or Urban Adventure and Wilderness Adventure. Adventure Travel can also range from budget to luxury travel, and may include independent travel, escorted tours and self-guided tours. Add to these sustainable tourism, voluntoursim, eco-tourism and indigenous tourism and you can see the list could go on forever.

Determining Your Travel Style

As I mention here, my niche is solo female travellers 50+. With that in mind, my main goal is to help solo female travellers experience the world safely. While you may not have someone to travel with some of the time, there will be other vacations when you’ll be travelling with your partner, family, friend(s) or a group of like-minded women. I am of course happy to help arrange your travel no matter who you travel with.

My role as your travel advisor and travel planner is to arrange a vacation that best matches your travel styles for each individual trip and that may change for each vacation you plan. Your travel style will depend on why you’re travelling, who you’re travelling with, where and when you want to go, how you want to travel at your destination and how long you want to stay and explore.

It will also depend on your comfort level, interests and other preferences, as well as those of your travelling companions if you’re not travelling alone. It may also depend on specific things you would like to see, do and experience at your desired destination.

Partnering with some of the best tour operators, cruise lines, onsite suppliers and hospitality in the industry, I help solo female travellers, like you, and their travelling companions experience the world safely, ensuring all their travel needs, interests and preferences are met.

Whether you’re travelling solo, with your partner, your family, friend(s) or with a group of like-minded women, I offer six main travel styles to help you experience the world safely: Escorted Group Tours, Fully Independent Tours, Self-Guided Tours, Ocean Cruises, River Cruises, and All-Inclusive Vacations. These travel styles encompass several other travel styles, such as Luxury Travel, Budget Travel, Adventure Travel, Road Trips, Rail Travel, Marine Travel, Wildlife Safaris and Wellness Travel.

As your travel advisor and trip planner, I can help you determine which travel style from the six main travel styles I offer suits you best, find or create the perfect itinerary using the best supplier(s) for your travel styles, and make all the travel arrangements to meet your needs, interests and preferences. For some destinations, I may need to make recommendations that put you into a different travel style than you expect.
