Protecting Women while they Travel

Reading Time: < 1 minute

UrSafe will provide its personal safety app to Solo Female Travelers’ nearly 90,000 members around the world in a deal announced today by UrSafe CEO Anthony Oyogoa, M.D and Solo Female Travelers co-founders Meg Jerrard and Mar Pages.

Interest in solo female travel is rising, and search volumes for the term grew six-fold in the four years before the start of the pandemic, but despite the growing trend, women still face many challenges and stereotypes when planning to travel on their own. Female-identifying individuals encounter additional challenges.

“Our survey revealed that safety is the number one concern for 73% of solo female travelers and this concern decreases only slightly for women who have traveled solo more than 10 times,” explains Jerrard. “Using UrSafe to provide geolocation information to local emergency services, granular travel visibility to trusted allies and live streaming of incidents can increase travel confidence among woman who travel alone.”

“We tested many safety apps before selecting UrSafe because of its voice-activated SOS call function, which does not require someone who is in a stressful situation to find her phone or on having the battery-draining Bluetooth feature turned on. As a global community with members in more than 100 countries, we also value UrSafe’s global and expanding footprint and its affordability,” Pages adds.

“Exploring the world should be exciting, fun, and empowering, and we’re delighted to provide an extra layer of safety to enable women to focus on the joys of travel,” says UrSafe’s Oyogoa.
