About National Woman Road Warrior Day
A day to honor the nation’s traveling businesswomen.
Women—young, old, single, married, and widowed are fueling an explosive growth in the travel industry. More women are traveling, for business and for pleasure.
Approximately 47% of all women who travel do so for business, a percentage has been rising over the past few years.
Business travel can be a great opportunity to see new places and meet new people. But it can also be a challenge, especially for women.
Top Tips for women who are traveling for business
- Plan ahead and pack light. You’ll want to be prepared for anything, but you don’t want to lug around a heavy suitcase.
- Stay connected. Make sure you have all the contact information you need, including the numbers of your co-workers, clients, and family members.
- Be aware of your surroundings. When you’re in a new place, it’s important to keep an eye on your belongings and be aware of your surroundings at all times.
- Dress appropriately.
- Check ahead for public holidays in your destination to avoid problems with public transport.
