TIPS FOR TRAVELLING ALONE

Travelling in a group is fun, but travelling alone gives you a very different experience. If you travel alone then your journey would full up of thrill & adventure. As we know, more number of people in a group creates more chaos. So sometimes it’s better to travel alone. Here are some tips for solo travellers which would help in your trip.

  • ENJOY BEING ALONE This is a prerequisite of travelling alone. If you want to travel alone then try to enjoy being alone. Because if you can’t do this then your solo trip would spoil.
  • DO YOUR HOMEWORK  Try to discover everything about your destination beforehand. Check the official website of your destination. It will give you all the facts you need to know. Ask people who’ve previously visited the place for life-saving tips.
  • PRE-BOOK YOUR STAY Always opt for reputed chains of hotels instead of an unknown guest house. Landing up alone at the destination, and not having a place to crash, is the worst way to start a trip.
  • NOTE DOWN ALL IMPORTANT NUMBERS Staying connected gives you a sense of security. Make sure there’s enough balance in your phone, and your family knows  that place where you have gone. Try to keep important numbers (home or a local friend number) in your mind.
  • SPEAK LIKE A NATIVE Its an easy trick for a complete experience of the place you’re visiting. Learn the local language. Simple phrases like ‘thank you’ and ‘excuse me’ will get you information about the place from locals that no guide book can provide.
  • DON’T WANDER OFF Tourists can become easy targets for cons or muggings. Be aware of your surroundings. Stick to the main roads and conventional modes of transport. Avoid walking in dark alleys during odd hours.
  • DON’T FLAUNT YOUR JEWELLERY Avoid taking jewellery and expensive gadgets with you. Also dress such that you don’t attract unwanted attention.
  • DON’T BE JUDGEMENTAL You’re discovering new places and new people are part of the agenda. So, don’t judge people. It’s okay to be cautious, but give new friendships a chance.
  • PLAN IN ADVANCE If you are going for a solo trip then don’t go for instant planning. Always do advance planning.
  • PACK LIGHT Pack light so that you can easily manage your luggage by yourself.
  • AVOID ARRIVING AT LATE NIGHT Plan to arrive during daylight so that you can find your directions with ease.
  • STORE IMPORTANT ITEMS IN ONE PLACE Always keep your most important items like passport, wallet, camera, phone, etc. in the same place and have a simple check.
