Why Women Should Travel Alone Once In Her Life

A couple months ago, we posted an article on “Women’s Solo Travel Under Scrutiny”. While that article brings up interesting arguments as to why women shouldn’t travel alone, we found this article that argues the exact opposite. Read this blurb of the article, then continue to read the article by clicking the link below!

“There was a moment, the last time I traveled alone, when I was stuck in a dark alley in Mexico, with two wild dogs and a lazy pony roaming around that I thought, “hmmm… maybe this wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had.”

The trip went smoothly. But Almeida, a strategic account executive for a global education company, was glad for the protection — just in case.

“Insurance is one of those things that you feel neutral if you got it and didn’t have to use it,” Almeida says, “but regret deeply if you didn’t, and needed it.”

With all that can go wrong on a trip — you wake up too sick to fly or lose your passport along the Champs-Elysees — travel insurance can come in handy.
