Dear Sister in Islam,
The answer to your question is as follows:

A woman, whether young or old, is not permitted to go on a long journey without the company of her Mahram (one with whom marriage is not allowed forever) or husband. The Prophet of Islam (SAWS) is reported as having said, A man should not get together with a woman in a separate place nor a woman should travel without her Mahram. (Mishkaat Shareef 221) Therefore, you should travel along with your Mahram or husband, if you are married.

And Allah knows the best,
