Capita Travel and Events and Maiden Voyage join forces to help make hotel world more female friendly

Capita Travel and Events, the UK’s specialist in travel, meetings and event management, and Maiden Voyage a world-leading provider of female business traveller safety solutions have joined forces in a unique deal to certify and showcase hotels that are ‘Female Friendly’. Capita Travel and Events will be inspecting hotels across the British Isles and incorporating those that qualify into their hotel programme.

Leigh Cowlishaw, director of supplier partnerships, Capita Travel and Events, said “We asked travellers whether or not they ever feel at risk when travelling and 67% of women said yes, compared with 19% of men. Our data also tells us that female travellers form a large proportion of our customers’ travelling population – a trend which varies between customer industries. Traveller wellbeing, for all travellers, is an important part of our Smarter Working proposition, so it made sense for us to join forces with a company which is changing the way in which hoteliers approach the needs of individuals. At the same time, Maiden Voyage saw the opportunity to use our UK hotel market expertise to help source the types of properties which meet its identified criteria – Maiden Voyage research shows that women business travellers want to be treated appropriately, not necessarily differently.”
