ANNAPOLIS, Md., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- There is safety in numbers the saying goes. Traveling alone can be very dangerous for women as the tragic death of Sarai Sierra in Istanbul, Turkey recently proved.

When friends or family are unavailable to travel, women believe they are faced with two choices: go alone or don't go. There is a third choice women are often not aware of - they can travel alone but be part of an all-women group. Women only travel groups offer pre-arranged travel to destinations around the world in a safe and secure environment, giving women the freedom to travel without having to depend on someone else.

"Sarai Sierra believed she had someone to travel with, until her friend canceled at the last minute. Unable to find someone else, she decided to go alone. Sarai took all the recommended precautions, communicated daily with family, but it ended tragically," says Debra Asberry, Founder of Women Traveling Together. "It didn't have to end this way. Women can fulfill their travel dreams and take advantage of the safety and security that group travel provides."

Women Traveling Together, founded in 1997, offers professionally guided, small groups of 18 women, to more than 50 destinations world-wide, including adventure, cultural immersion, and special interest travel. Women wishing to share accommodations to save money are guaranteed to have a roommate. As the largest and oldest women's travel company in the US, Women Traveling Together has helped thousands of women fulfill their travel dreams, and given them the independence to travel on their own terms.

Debra Asberry is also the author of "Someone to Travel With: Connecting Women who Share a Passion for Travel" (release date May 31, 2013) which speaks directly to the rewards and benefits of women-only group travel.
