OUR

STORY

WE INSPIRE SISTERS

by creating a positive space on Facebook for like-minded Sisters to connect

From seeing photos of Sisters doing the things you have always wanted to do, to reading a post about someone who once was afraid to travel solo overcoming their fear while in Rome, to just getting words of encouragement from Sisters you have never met.

WE CONNECT SISTERS

through our group trips around the World and our meetups throughout the USA

We create opportunities for Sisters whom once were strangers to become inseparable travel buddies and life long friends.

Sisters Traveling Solo™ was created to empower Sisters to travel solo; to travel in general. Our mission is to connect, empower, inspire, and support Sisters.

WE EMPOWER SISTERS

by giving them the tools need to travel the World

Any member who is eligible to obtain a U.S. passport but are unable to obtain one due to financial hardship can sign up for our passport giveaway. Having an opportunity to get one for free, 100% funded by Sisters Traveling Solo. 

WE SUPPORT SISTERS

by traveling responsibly

In 2017 we introduced our Cultural Experiences where we work with and give our dollars to local women. And in 2018 we introduced our Sisters Travel Magazine a platform that will allow our Sisters who blog access to a greater audience.

"As women, we need to give ourselves some time. We need to recoup. We must learn who we are, and traveling solo can help us do that."

Cole Banks

Founder, Sisters Traveling Solo™

MEET FOUNDER COLE BANKS

Cole is helping to drive the travel culture for black women with unmatched global travel experiences. The idea of Sisters Traveling Solo was sparked after Cole read an online post discouraging black women from traveling solo. As a woman of color, the post disturbed Banks who frequently travels around the world solo and she knew she was not alone. Her passion for traveling, solo experiences and wanting to help other sisters led to the creation of the Sisters Traveling Solo.


In 2018, Cole left her corporate job at The Coca-Cola Company to focus on Sisters Traveling Solo full-time when the company began booking more trips than she had vacation days to cover and she was no longer able to balance both. Now, her office can be anywhere she wants it to be as she continues connecting, empowering, inspiring and supporting sisters.
