woman travelling alone without a mahram / woman going for Hajj

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

Are women allowed to travel alone without a mahram and go for wajib Hajj or voluntary Hajj alone without a Mahram ? I know the different opinions amongst sunnis on this issue. But recently I came across a hadith in Al-Kafi where Imam Jaffar As-Sadiq (peace be upon him) was asked if a woman can go for Hajj without permission from her husband and there is no one with her of her guardians: he answered "She can do so if she is safe".
Could you give me the zaidi point of view ?

May Allah reward you with good.

A woman can not travel without Mahram, with the exception of two cases:

1) she travels from the land of disbelief to the land of belief
2) she travels to flee from danger

In the case of Haj,j a woman must travel with a mahram. If she does travel without a mahram then she has committed a sin, but her Hajj is valid. if she does travel for hajj without a mahram she must give Fidiah (sacrifice.)

And Allah knows best
