Our New York Group
I decided today to talk about Woman Travel and the Group that our Company launched in October of 2012.
I started this group because I had had several woman in our local area talking about traveling alone, why the single supplement stops them from traveling and some just wanting other woman to travel with so they feel safe and to gain more friendships with people that had similar interests. Several woman that were booking with me had husbands that didn’t like to travel so they would get together and travel as a group. So the need was definitely there for a group of this nature.
On our trips one of my agents always accompanies the group. We always plan dinner the first night at destination so everyone gets to meet everyone. The tours change with each destination, some are what the client picks and they do on their own (or with others that are also going) and some are all group tours where we are together more.
I started with a facebook page and asked people what they thought our group should be called. After a contest we came up with “Her World Travels”, We invited people to join our page and it took off from there. I try and post information that woman would like to see. Articles regarding Single woman traveling alone, how to pack, and information on destinations. The top four destinations that people wanted to visit were Ireland (one of my top 3 destination I have been to), San Francisco, New York and New Orleans.
Our San Francisco trip was October of 2013. We had 15 people go and it was so much fun! New York Trip was June of 2014, and New Orleans is set to go in October. Ireland is being planned for June 2015. We have since changed our name and we are called Traveling Divas. Love the new name!
What do I hope for this group? That we can have people joining us from all over the world to enjoy destinations as a group and make new friends and feel safe while traveling. Its been a year and a half and its steadily growing. Check us out on http://www.facebook.com/thetravelingdivas.
