Betsy Sell, Managing Director of AAA Travel, said 'The experience of a girlfriend getaway has a deep effect on the lives and friendships of women who take these types of trips, and many believe that going away with their girlfriends is important, no matter the destination.’ The women polled said just getting away and bonding with girlfriends, sisters or other female family members was what mattered most. Accommodations and destinations are just incidentals.
So if you think you need to go on a week-long cruise or scale Mt. Everest to make a getaway worthwhile, think again. Sometimes a girls night in, a girls night out or even a stay at home vacation are just what you need to revive your sense of well-being and reconnect with girlfriends and family members.
If you are looking for getaway packages and only seem to find packages billed as "couples or romantic packages" keep in mind that these will often work well for girlfriend getaways or girls weekends too - usually with little modification. The study, in fact, found that 51% of girlfriend getaways consist of 2-3 women so some of these packages could be perfect. After all, who couldn't go for a soak in a hot tub while sipping wine and eating chocolates?
