Wanderful is a community for women who love to travel. Our global sisterhood joins together both online and in person with the same goal in mind: We are women helping women travel the world.
Wanderful was built on the idea that women are each other’s greatest asset. When we support each other, we create a community of encouragement and growth potential that has no limit.
Maybe you’re still searching for your own travel community or maybe you’re just wondering whether or not to become a member of Wanderful.
We asked our members about their favorite benefits, so we thought you might like to know what makes this women’s travel community so fabulous.
1. Wanderful is a *Global* Women’s Travel Community
One of the top reasons members love the Wanderful community is our global reach of membership.
Members connect with women who are from around the world and who are traveling all around the world. Together, we share experiences and insights, travel tips and advice, stories and sisterhood.
If you’re traveling soon, you can tap into this network to get insights from those who live there or have traveled there recently.
If you love your home city, you can offer advice and inspiration for other members to come and visit. And, when they do, you know you can meet up with like-minded women and share that special bond!
This global reach reflects the variety of experiences women have while traveling. Wanderful welcomes all women who love to travel!
2. Virtual Events for All Members to Join
Members get access to all our virtual events. We have a wide range of webinars and courses to help you learn travel hacks and tips, but we also get together to socialize online!
Language circles help us keep our skills fresh and ready to be used wherever we venture to next.
Virtual brunches and wine nights help us to feel connected to women around the world.
Wanderful members who are certified trainers or yoga instructors offer online classes and tips for other members.
Netflix-watching parties, online music streaming together, and virtual book clubs are all fun ways to connect with other travel-loving women. Geography and borders can’t keep us apart!
3. Members Get Free Admission to Monthly Chapter Events
With around 50 chapters in cities all across the world, you might already have a Wanderful chapter in your own backyard!
Monthly meetups like Brunch Club and Wanderful Women Wednesdays are free for members to attend. (Note that non-members are always welcome for a small fee.)

It’s amazing what connections can happen when you start off on such similar ground!
I have met a new friend through here and rekindled an old friendship also. In the future I’m sure that I will make many new friends.
Going to Boston Chapter events introduced me to local travelers and bloggers who have become friends.
I’ve been a member for a number of years and love the camaraderie of my fellow travel sisters. So much valuable information and friendships made!

7. We Support Women Travel Creators Changing the Industry
Wanderful is the creator of WITS, the Women in Travel Summit. WITS is the premier event for women travel influencers and creators, and the brands that want to work with them.
Hosted on two continents with hundreds of attendees each year, WITS brings together women travel creators to challenge the travel industry status quo. By encouraging more diverse voices and experiences to be shared, WITS attendees and sponsors are creating a more equitable and inclusive industry for all.
Are you a woman working in travel as a creator or influencer? Or do you run a travel business? Check out what WITS is all about right here.
After seeing the power of this women’s travel community at each WITS conference, Wanderful also supports women travel creators through additional membership perks. Creator members of Wanderful hone their skills and connect with the right brands all year long.
On May 27, 2020, the Travel Industry Virtual Meetings Day will offer brands and qualified media a chance to network and create opportunities to collaborate.
After multiple travel conferences had to cancel during early 2020, Wanderful and the WITS planning team realized the significance of this loss. Virtual Meetings Day will help travel industry professionals and creators all around the world to connect during this challenging time.

10. Women Helping Women to Travel More
Whether it’s opening up our homes to other traveling members of Wanderful or offering to meet up for a coffee or a walk around the city together, Wanderful is all about helping women to get out into the world.
And — guess what?! — the world includes your own backyard!
You don’t need to travel thousands of miles from home to get the benefits of travel. In fact, here are a variety of ways you can expand your own horizon and travel without even leaving home.
Women encouraging other women to explore, to get uncomfortable, to challenge preconceptions, and to learn something new about the world is what Wanderful is all about.
This is a women’s travel community built on true connection and inspiration to explore the world in every way possible. And we would love for you to join us!
