Is it safe you to travel alone?

Well, this is the question that all women solo travellers have to grapple with. Unlike the rest of the world, a woman travelling alone is a rare sight in India and is still rendered as a unique concept. With ever increasing crime rates, safety issues come to the forefront warding off any desire or enthusisam. But for all those brave heads who want to push boundaries, we are here with our top ten travelling tips which if followed can secure you from the hassle and keep your spirits retained.

Presenting top 10 safe travel tips for our women solo travellers!

Do Your Research

For some ever-enthusiastic travellers, researching and planning about a trip is much more fun that exploring that destination in reality. For women travellers in specific (for males too, actually), this part of your trip is a must-do. Before you step your foot on an alien land procure every kind of safety information. For getting around in the city, what are the various modes of transportation available? Are there any particular taxis that you can hop on to? Does the trend changes in night? What is the nightlife of the city like? Find answers to all these questions before you make your move. Remember that safety comes first.

Study about Accommodation

For women travellers, it is important to check the safety ratings of a place that you have chosen for stay. Make sure to go through some reviews of former guests to get a peek into the safety arrangements and facilities. As always advised by the elderly, if you meet strangers, don’t give much details.

Trust is the Key

Don’t talk to strange people! All of us have got such kind of advice from our darling mothers and we all have always shooed it away thanks to our overconfidence. Well, that advice is extremely important when you are a solo traveller. Trust your instincts. If you are uncomfortable in some stranger approaching you, let him/her know your discomfort without worrying about sounding rude. It is for your own safety.

Gel along with not only People but the Local Culture

When in Rome, do as the Romans do! While researching your next destination, make sure to have a detailed understanding of how the local people dress and live. Try to look like a local and if that is difficult, be confident or at least pretend to be so. Talk to people and make friends with them only when your instincts allow.

Carry Some Defence Mechanisms

If you are a woman, safety is of supreme importance when you are travelling not only in India but in other parts of the world as well. The trick is to be aware and not scared. Don’t leave you confidence and invest some cash into pepper sprays, open assist knives, and other self-defence tools.

Keep Yourself Ready for Trouble

Do remember to keep an extra copy of your personal documents and be ready with some extra backup cash. If arrived at night, take a licensed cab or let your hotel arrange a taxi for you. If that costs you some extra pennies, remember that safety comes first.

Pack Wisely

While travelling solo, just carry some essentials and keep your valuables locked up. Don’t carry all your credit cards and fancy stuff like i-pads, laptops, etc., when going for a short walk or a tour. Carry some bare essentials that are required for that day.

Resist Alcohol

Bottom’s Up is not a good idea in a foreign land. You might end up disclosing all your secrets landing yourself into trouble.

Book in Advance

You might love the idea of ‘wing it.’ But self-preservation is sometimes better than anything. Book your hotels, taxis, tours etc. well in advance to ward off troubled scenarios.

Keep your Near Ones Close

Get your data packs recharged and let someone know your whereabouts either via checking-in to your social networking accounts or via GPRS. Before heading for your journey, let someone know your about your bookings and travelling time.

Leave your worries at home and the let the adventuress in you to discover the wonders of world!

So, now you have finally decided to cross that solo trip from your bucket list. But, it is obvious, that there are a number of doubts and queries that are cracking your head. Definitely, you must be worried about how to plan your vacation, what to pack, safety measures, and hotel bookings.Travelling solo means you are responsible for yourself and there is no chance of relying upon someone for remembering and arranging things. After all, being a hippie is not a cake walk. Hence, we are here with a list of top 10 Travel Hacks for Every Solo Traveller that will be valuable for a solo trip.

Research everything but don’t Plan

Travelling solo enables you to change what you like to do at your impulse and after an unplanned encounter. You will discover more if you have not done any advance ticket bookings. Try to act at spur-of-the moment. But, this does not mean that you should not conduct your research. Study everything that you desire to do at the destination but don’t draft a travel checklist or an itinerary. Ultimately, you will realise you have enjoyed and learnt more.

Believe Your Instincts

Have some faith on your gut. If a stranger or a place is giving you discomfort leave urgently without worrying about being rude. If you have make friends with fellow passengers, hang out with them either in a restaurant or café instead of a hotel room. Before everything else, safety is of utmost importance. All said, be confident and a bit careful while you fully enjoy your vacation.

Pack Wisely

This step is important for all those who want more than a pair of clothes, a charger and booked tickets. Remember that when you are travelling solo, you are the only person who will carry your luggage. Instead of being burdened by more baggage, ‘travel light and see more!’ Presently, most of the hotels provide laundry service, so few t-shirts and bottom wears are just enough to explore the new destination. Have a separate bag pack of essentials containing your documents, money, electronics etc.

Mail all Your Required Documents

E-mail yourself a photocopy of all your important papers like identity proofs, tickets, passport and Visa. This will be useful in case your stuff is stolen or has been misplaced. It is wise to be prepared as you never know what surprises are waiting for you at each turn. Few steps and you have some regret-free holidays.

Be Connected

You might want to have some lone time with yourself and that’s why you have planned a solo trip. But this does not mean you are not connected with your near and dear ones while you are on a travelling alone. Just as a safety measure, inform your family and friends about your travel plans and bookings. This is important as in case of any emergency they won’t face any difficulty tracing you.

Recharges and Power Back-ups

Before heading out on a journey, make sure your cell phones are fully recharged. This will help you in avoiding many frustrating moments in the course of your trip. It is wise to carry along a power back-up or a portable phone charger so that you can simply charge your phone without hunting for charging points.

Managing your Finances

Always carry some along with you as your credit and debit cards might not work everywhere especially when you are travelling to remote locations. Also, some extra cash always comes handy in matters of any emergency. Also, if you are travelling abroad, it is advisable to exchange currency before embarking on a journey as currency exchange counters/ATM might not be easily avalaible.

Be like a Local

As people say, when in Rome, do as the romans do. While researching your next destination, make sure to have a thorough understanding of how the local people dress and live. Try to look like a local and if that is difficult, be self-confident or at least pretend to be so. Talk to people and make friends with them only when your instincts allow.

Travel during a Day

While you are on a solo trip, make sure you travel during the day time as far as possible. Since, most occurrences of thefts and robbery happen at night, it is important for you to be prepared. In case if you have to travel at night, prefer reliable means of transportation and be cautious.

Carry Entertainment

Although travelling solo enables you to discover more as it forces you to meet new people and makes you come out of your comfort zone. But there will be times when you will be stuck with yourself and in those moments, it is alright to connect with the world while chatting with a friend on social media, read a book or listen to some music.
