THE MEMBERSHIP FOR
WOMEN WHO LIVE TO HOLIDAY
The all-female travel club that empowers women to dream, plan and book amazing holidays that can't be Googled – founded and ran by trusted travel industry experts with an all female community at the core.
At a time when we all need something positive to focus on and adventures to dream and plan, Girl About is offering Standard Membership 100% FREE
No strings. No catch. No credit card required.
My mission is to empower you to create the most incredible holidays without the hassle of hours spent researching and comparing holidays and hotels on faceless websites. No more contradictory reviews from people you have absolutely nothing in common with.
Lyndsey Thomas ‧ Girl About & Girl About Travel Club Founder
When I launched the Girl About Travel Club (FREE to join right now) in September 2020 I did so because I wanted to create a safe, unbiased platform for women to use as their trusted go-to for holidays and travel. A place where you can get your questions answered by experts in lots of fields with the purpose linking back to your holidays.
An online space for holidays that's not just all about travel offers and holiday deals.
Holidays are what I live for. But my family and I want to travel beyond the obvious.
We don't want expensive-for-expensive-sake hotels, and we don't want huge resort properties in busy Spanish resorts.
The type of accommodation we love is often hard to find and requires a lot of research. I'm talking white-washed inns in The Greek Islands, pretty little gites in France, and small wildlife lodges in the middle of a national park in Sri Lanka, where elephants wander free.
Even when I think I've found what I want, there's always the anxiety around what we'll be met with when we arrive at the hotel.
Will it be everything it promises to be on that faceless website?
Will the recommendations from people I have nothing in common with serve use well?
Or will our worst holiday nightmare come true - stuck in a hell hole for days or even weeks.
This is just one of the reasons I set out to build the Girl About Travel Club. There are many more. But this is my personal reason.
I’m here to bring you unrivalled expert access to the best destinations and experiences from around the world. It’s my mission to inspire and inform you with the knowledge you need to book incredible holidays that you won’t find elsewhere. Come and explore with us!

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING
Thanks to the experts in the Girl About Travel Club - these ladies gave us the best advice around Covid19 and a holiday to Greece in 2020. We trusted their judgement and advice and so glad we took the plunge when we did. We were one of the few who had a trouble-free holiday abroad.
I have LOVED my first few weeks as a VIP Travel Club Member. The Canada Expert Event was incredible. I was able to tune in to so many experts and really get to grips with how and where I want to holiday in Canada. We are adding Canada to our trip next year for sure after that! So much info on Canada in one place.
I 100% trust the advice I get around travel from the Girl About Travel Club team. They are straight-talking and knowledgeable and they know there stuff when it comes to travel. It's thanks to them that I narrowly avoided a disastrous trip to Greece in 2020 - booked through Love Holidays. I won't use an online travel agency again that's for sure!
It’s really important to us that this club is inclusive to all women, regardless of their situation.
We want to give everyone who identifies as a woman a platform to dream, plan and book incredible holidays with the help, support and recommendations of like-minded women and of course the Girl About Travel Club team.
Dream, chat, plan, book and share your travel experiences.
The Travel Club is about giving you all the facts, heaps of expert-led advice, and all the options to book a holiday. Our preferred travel agent of choice is ATOL protected Charitable Travel - book with Charitable Travel via The Girl About Travel Club and donate 5% of your holiday cost to one of our chosen charities.
This pioneering one-stop-shop of resources, downloads, articles, guides, access to industry experts and destination expert events is for those who want a holiday that’s beyond the brochures and a one-stop-fly-and-flop jolly. Plus, live chats with real women who love where they live and can give our members the info beyond the guide books.

The Girl About Travel Club is powered by:
So much more than a travel and lifestyle brand, Girl About is a memory-making brand built on women’s experiences, advice, knowledge and recommendations. Above all, we aspire to help women create amazing memories for themselves and their families.
We are Girl About – a nationwide collective headed up by global travel industry experts and made of up women engaging their local communities across the UK with travel ideas, knowledge, inspiration, recommendations and resources.
Friendship, support and community are at the heart of it – the Girl About Blog Squad is the beating heart of Girl About.
Our Ambassadors across the country – the official Girl About in their city – champion all the great places to make amazing memories in their neck of the woods. Independent businesses for the most part – the cool, the quirky, the downright amazing:
- The best boutique hotels, historic inns, and luxury pubs with rooms.
- Restaurants that provide ambience and experience. Exquisite dishes, theatre, amazing tasting menus and maybe a Michelin Star.
- The ‘can’t-miss’ places to visit with loved ones when visiting their city/county.
- And quirky experiences from glamping to sheep-shearing and everything in-between.
