Female-Founded Startup Solves Travel Safety Issue at Web Summit
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - LISBON, Portugal - Nov 10, 2017 - JOZU for WOMEN announced today at Web Summit it will launch its advanced safety features to allow its members to contribute to its proprietary safety rating system in Q1 2018 in its mobile application. With 87 percent of all women citing safety as their greatest concern when on a trip, these features will include the ability for women to have their location and situation messaged to their country of citizenship’s Department of Foreign Affairs, the local police and other verified female members using the service. These features are in addition to a proprietary rating system that is based on the level of safety experienced with staff, the location/neighborhood, and other guests.
The announcement of adding badges to hotels that have reported incidents of violence against women fails to address the greater underlining issues of transparency and safety. To address the shortcomings in the industry of both fake or hidden reviews, JOZU for WOMEN has leveraged the power of its community not only to provide travel tips by women for women but also come to each other’s rescue when needed. With more than 800 million women traveling this year, and 3/10 more than five times this year, the need for information that is transparent and relevant is ever-increasing.
More than 800 million women are traveling this year and make 90 percent of vacation purchase decisions. The Mexico incident was horrific and could have been avoided.
“The need for transparent information relevant to the needs of female travelers is not ‘new’. We’re making up more than 55 percent of all hotel room nights, and 2/3 of traveling passengers. We make 90 percent of the vacation purchase decisions, and we’re tasked with making plans based on the information we can find online. The incident in Mexico was horrific, but sadly not unique, and further, could have been avoided,” said Stephenie Rodriguez, CEO and Founder of Jozu for Women Inc.
