About Independent Travel Help
Independent Travel Help (ITH) is a travel website and blog that Teresa Keane set up in January 2012. Teresa is a British-born female who, at the age of 38, backpacked solo for the first time in her life around 18 countries in a year from India to Argentina. Not wanting this to be a ‘stand-alone’ experience in her life, and with a passion for travel, she set up ITH.
ITH aims to inspire and motivate women aged 35 and over by giving them information so they can make travel decisions that are right for them. The topics we cover include information about destinations, tips, and mindset.
ITH is targeted towards women aged 35+ who are interested in travelling in a meaningful way and one that is right for them.
The stats are constantly changing and this page isn’t always up-to-date. Here are the most recent stats:

I set up an open G+ community called Independent Travel Help recently. The aim is to have a place that people can go to for anything related to independent travel, whether it is inspirational, motivational, and any information (travel hints, tips etc.,) to help people make informed decisions about travelling independently.
Teresa is always seeking new experiences around independent travel. Because of this, we are interested in things that will appeal to different types of women in that age bracket (luxury, budget, adventure, volunteering etc.). Teresa has a strong interest in the following:
- Responsible travel
- Off the beaten track
- Quirky and unusual things
- Demystifying independent travel
At ITH, we produce written blog posts for this site and other travel websites such as Traveldudes, occasional articles for online travel magazines, travel videos, and photo posts.
