FAQS - The Lady Alliance


What are you exactly? A community? A travel company...?

The short answer… both… kinda? The Lady Alliance is a community of women dedicated to encouraging and empowering other women to be the best versions of themselves. Easy peasy. You can join the community through our Facebook Groups, Instagram, or by purchasing a membership. We want to encourage involvement and you can do this in many ways: local or global events, applying to be an Ambassador, submitting photos for our Instagram page, or writing posts for our stories, and more!

As for the travel part… yes, we offer events all around North America and beyond. It’s part of our mission, so we offer them at a low cost. Not every event is able to meet every budget, but we’re hoping that there’s something for everyone! 

How are The Lady Alliance events different from others?

The number one goal is to introduce you to other inspiring, kick-ass, adventurous women. It’s all about building our empowerment tribes! Our second goal is to introduce you to the outdoors. It’s quite the thing to witness, putting a group of women who are passionate about the outdoors in an epic location. We know it’s a cliche thing to say… but it’s where the magic happens.

How much does it cost?

It varies from event to event, so you’ll need to look at each event for more information. However, we try hard to keep them affordable. This is something we have thought long and hard about! It’s our mission to get as many women experiencing the outdoors as we can! Getaways are inclusive of your lodging, some food and some of the experiences (all getaways list specifically what’s included). You’d be hard-pressed to find another company that offers prices as competitive as we do.

Is there a refund policy on events?

Due to the nature of the Women Who Explore getaways, we don’t offer refunds. We do, however, offer transfers. You are responsible for finding someone to transfer your ticket to and arranging the exchange of funds for your ticket. If you can no longer make the event, please get in touch to discuss transferring your ticket.

Does The Lady Alliance have an ambassador program?

You might be exactly who we're looking for as a Women Who Explore Ambassador. We are on the hunt for passionate women who want to spread the excitement globally and in their communities. Our Ambassadors truly embrace and live the #Explore lifestyle.

what's being an ambassador all about?
  • Creating and running a local Facebook Group in your community. This involves knowledge of Facebook and an open mind on how to reach new women in your community.
  • Planning and executing a minimum of one meetup per month in your local community. This involves creating a facebook event, inviting members, running the event and more. Meetups can be anything from hiking to paddling to pub nights to axe throwing to painting to beach days.
  • Open to be trained to run Women Who Explore Getaways. We run around 40-50 getaways a year, ranging from 2 nights to 7 nights. Our ambassadors are paid hosts for these getaways. You will be open to attending a training session to learn how to host these weekends.
  • Locally Connected: You’re open to, or already connected to other women in your area. If you are not connected already, you must have ideas on how to reach women in your area. Running your local Women Who Explore Instagram page (optional).
