[Montreal Gazette] Hotel Intel: Travel services for women, by women
Wanderful's international homesharing network helps women who travel
The concept of sisterhood in travel is growing fast and several companies organize tours and lodging exclusively for women. Here are three outstanding sources: Wanderful operates a home-sharing network, and Wild Terrains and Purposeful Nomad run tours built around local culture and women-operated enterprises.
Home sharing: If you’re travelling thousands of kilometres and arrive in a place that is outside of your comfort zone, you might need a best friend, family togetherness or a home-cooked meal.
Wanderful’s home-sharing network is similar to Airbnb, except all the hosts and guests are women and they all are identified through a video process. Many of the hosts are single mothers, empty nesters and young professionals.
