Travelling groups for women are becoming a rage now. Gone are the days where a woman couldn’t go on a vacation without accompanied by her husband or a male member of her family. Today women travel all over the world for business or pleasure. Women travelling clubs in India are comparatively a new endeavor that is catching the fancy of more and more women these days. It is safer, cheaper and a great way to meet people from all walks of life and build up some confidence.

These women travel groups do not claim to be travelling agencies who will take you places and back. What they try to do is to provide a special touch by including many women centric activities that creates wonderful memories and many a times lasting bonds of newfound friendship. Here are a few well known women only travel clubs in India.

WOW club (Women on Wanderlust)

By Official Website

The brainchild of Sumitra Senapaty, the WOW club is one of the oldest and the best known travel club for women in India. Senapaty was a travel writer, who on one of her quest for a story came across a group of women from United Kingdom who were strangers travelling in a group. The idea stuck with her and after she got encouraged by her friends and family, she decided to start a similar venture in order to encourage the Indian woman to have a sense of adventure and take the route less travelled. As a testament to the club’s success and popularity, WOW does close to 80 trips each year.

This travel club believes that women have different travel needs and thus travelling with women makes a trip easier in some ways. To add a special touch, the group tries to include many activities and workshops that would most likely appeal to the feminine mind.
