It is not permissible for a woman to travel without a mahram (brother, son, uncle, father etc basically someone she cant marry)  the purpose for the mahram being there is so that he can protect her and take care of her, especially if any emergency arises, and travel is subject to emergencies regardless of the length of time involved. Whatever people regard as “travelling” is like this, and is subject to the rulings on travelling.
