Travel as a Gift for Mom: A Growing Trend for Mother's Day
Travel as a Gift for Mom: A Growing Trend for Mother's Day

ANNAPOLIS, Md., April 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Mothers are receiving travel as a gift for Mother's Day from their husbands, making moms with children at home one of the fastest growing segments of the women's travel industry. Today, ten percent of the women who travel on an all-women's trip have at least one child under the age of eighteen at home, according to Marian Marbury, owner of "Adventures in Good Company," the largest all-women's adventure travel company ( Marbury, who has been involved in the industry for over 15 years, says that this growth is in part due to the increasing awareness of the women's travel industry as a growing segment of the travel industry.

Debra Asberry, President of "Women Traveling Together", one of the largest women's travel clubs specializing in getaway weekends, cultural excursions, and spa retreats concurs. "Mothers with children at home need a break, and husbands who give travel as a gift most often choose to give their wife a spa weekend getaway." (

A mother taking time for herself was almost unheard of fifteen years ago," says Marian Marbury. "Two specific factors have contributed to the increasing number of mothers taking vacations without their kids. There is no longer a stigma attached to the concept of women traveling independently from their families, but more importantly, women (and their families) recognize the importance of time away 'with the girls.'"

"Whether the trip is a spa retreat or a hiking trip, moms are rejuvenated by the relaxed atmosphere, the friendships that come so easily, and the laughter," says Debra Asberry. "And frankly, a husband is more comfortable knowing his wife is with the girls and not a co-ed group."

"Adventures in Good Company" and "Women Traveling Together" offer a wide variety of travel opportunities ranging from spa getaways to outdoor adventure. The companies have a combined total of over 50 tours to choose from. Complete itineraries can be found on their web sites and catalogs are available from both.
