July Update – The Solo Travel Card!

the solo travel card

It’s the end of July already! This month as well as sharing a life lesson (which I’ve included at the bottom), I want to share something that I’m so excited about. This month was the launch of my biggest product ever!

With so many of us now travelling solo, I have been working behind the scenes for months  to create a product that celebrates the increase in women travelling solo, and am so thrilled to share this:

With the amount of women searching for cultural experiences and recommendations from other solo female travellers, Girl about the Globe has launched the first-ever Solo Travel Card offering discounts within the travel industry to solo female travellers.

The Solo Travel Card is an exclusive card for solo female travellers offering discounts on solo female-friendly products and services.

It allows us to save money on our favourite brands, have reassurance on which companies to book through and help make an impact at the same time. There are discounts from more than 30 solo female-friendly brands, including volunteering placements, yoga retreats, girls getaways, backpacker travel passes, sailing holidays, tribal experiences, African safaris, worldwide airport transfers, culture guides, guide books, travel bras, in-flight skincare and so many more…

With more of us girls travelling and seeking recommendations with who to book through, the card covers everything we need for our trips and gives us peace of mind that we are booking with the right companies.

To celebrate the launch each cardholder also receives a free ‘Plan Your Dream Solo Trip’ course. This twelve part course takes you through the planning stages of their trip, step by step. Discover how to find the perfect destination, when to go and how long to go for, how to work out your travel budget, how to get around, where to stay and how to plan your perfect itinerary. The card is open to all ages and each cardholder is assigned a virtual travel card with a personalised number.

With my ethos on conscious travelling and making an impact, I donate 10% from each card to organisations helping vulnerable girls about the globe. Only solo female friendly companies are included on the card. I really hope you love this as much as I do.

Where have I been this month?

I’ve just arrived in Edinburgh and am writing this from a hostel in Edinburgh where I am staying for 11 days (with a tour booked around Scotland in-between). Thank you MacBackpackers!

This month I have been back in Barcelona catching up with friends and co-working. I just can’t seem to stay away from this Catalan city. If you’re planning a trip here check out my solo guide to Barcelona.

Having spent time solo in Oslo in June I found myself unexpectedly going back this month. So I guess my lesson for this month is… always expect the unexpected. The best surprises seem to happen when you travel solo 🙂

I’d love to know where you’ve been this month or whether you’ve experienced the unexpected when you’ve travelled alone. Comment below. If you know of anyone who would benefit from the Solo Travel Card, I’d love it if you shared the post too. Thanks x
