Travelling and visiting new places and cultures by itself is an enriching experience for any person. And what’s better than travelling alone by yourself? You get to live life on your own terms!
Are you a woman planning for a solo trip to an unknown destination? Then there will definitely be some concerns that you may think of before your travel and adventure begins. We bring to you tips for a safe yet fun adventure that you are planning to embark upon!
Tips for a safe travel:
- Firstly, do a crowd search about your destination
Check top travel sites to learn about your destination in detail, the hotels or accommodation you chose, the neighborhood it is located in, etc. Make sure it is a safe place for solo travelling.
- Go by the guest ratings
While choosing accommodation, logistics, restaurants, etc., go by the ratings that these establishments have received from customers who have already had an experience with them.
- Prepare an itinerary
Prepare a thorough itinerary of your entire travel, accommodation, dates, transport details, contact numbers, etc. and give it to your near and dear ones back home so that they are not clueless about your whereabouts if in case any trouble should occur to you.
- Consider obtaining travel insurance
Although it may not be necessary, you can consider applying for one just in case of any medical or dental emergencies, lost baggage claims, cancellation of trips or delays and many more.
- Keep extra copies of important documents
In case you are travelling to a foreign country, have photocopies of your passport and other important documents and emergency contact numbers taken and keep it with you at all times during the trip. This way you can leave the originals in a safety locker in your hotel to avoid loss of such important documents.
- Make sure you split your money and keep
Do not keep all your money with you in your pocket. Split them up and keep some with you in your pocket, some in your jacket and wallet and some in your hotel room itself. This way, you will be safeguarded even if there should be any theft or loss of your money.
We hope these tips will help you plan the perfect solo travel vacation for you. Happy travelling!
