“She travel club is the fruits of my own experience in travelling all over the world. She, Safe & happy everywhere, is my promise to all women.
Our label will help to make hospitality better for women and facilitate the travelling experience for all of us. Women love travelling and this trend is here to stay. They love discovering the world, meeting newpeople, searching for inspiration, evasion pleasure or wellness. They travel with family, friends, kids and more and more solo.
But women represent also 52% of business travelers.
Travelling empowers women in many ways: meeting new people, expanding network, embracing opportunities, pushing boundaries.
Beside personal pleasure, travelling contributes to empower women economically and foster economic independence.
We want to contribute to open the eyes of the hospitality sector and help hotels to be part of the social change and integrate women comfort safely in their customers’ experience.”
Travelling is part of my life !
“SHe Travel Club combines my passions and the expertise I have developed as co-founder of the Think Tank Marie Claire Agir pour l’égalité: Travel and Gender Equality. Travelling is always a source of inspiration, however as a woman, we have sometimes wished our hotel would provide us with specific attention that would truly caters to our specific needs. This is why I have decided to create SHe Travel Club to help women to feel… SHe: Safe and Happy everywhere and to encourage the Hospitality sector to adapt their offers to our needs !”

I am Italian, from Salerno, Campania living in Paris since 6 years.
As a graduate student in Economics of International Tourism Development at the Sorbonne in Paris, I am proud to be associated with the meritorious work done by SHe Travel Club, an international and innovative startup that aims to reinvent women’s tourism by respecting women’s expectations. SHe, Safe and Happy everywhere is not just a slogan, it’s a promise!”
« I have always been fascinated by hotels so it became an obvious choice to join the hospitality sector as a professional. I have worked as portfolio manager within the hotel distribution covering various destinations and countries.
After My various business and personal trips have allowed me to audit and stay in many hotels of all levels, and to appreciate the essential but also innovative and constantly evolving services. SHe Travel Club’s unique approach naturally convinced me, by putting the needs of women travelers at the center of questions about the evolution of hotel services.
An essential, feminine approach, of excellence, of support, to travel Safe and Happy! everywhere!
