Women vote Delhi as the most unsafe metro city in survey
Among women who travel alone, 41 per cent said they actually enjoyed travelling alone for work. 76 per cent said they enjoy going solo on holiday.
Lack of company was not a complaint. In fact, majority of the women (58 per cent) said their biggest incentive for solo vacations was that they could do all the things they want without having to worry about what someone else wants.
About 34 per cent women indicated they loved travelling alone as it was adventurous and exciting. Another 32 per cent claimed the thrill of managing everything by themselves was a motivator as well.
According to Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor India, "The rise in women travelling alone on business is an understandable fallout of the increase in the number of working women. The real surprise is the significant number of Indian women who are choosing to travel solo on vacation."
Another interesting insight was that 78 per cent women said they would prefer to stay in an all women's hotel or on a women exclusive floor in a hotel, when travelling alone.
