How Men and Women Travel Differently

Stereotypes aside, men and women have different habits, especially when it comes to travel. I’ve talked to tour companies, done my research, and learned from personal experience to find out what exactly these differences are. And while not everyone fits certain characteristics, here is what I found to be the major differences between men and women in their travel habits.

No one travel habit is better than the other, it’s just in good fun to compare them. Sound off in the comments section below with your own thoughts and experiences on male and female travel habits.
