With this article today, I’m going to share with you 06 travel tips for female solo travelers. So if you are a female traveler who likes to go solo and have questions about safety, these hacks will surely help you protect yourself.
As a travel blogger, I always get emails from my readers regarding their safety when traveling alone or even with a companion.
I guess we’ve all heard these lines:
The world is not a pleasant place.
This country is not safe
You can be a target for locals
Well, fuck that!
Yes, there are people with bad intentions but believe me the number is much lower.
I have traveled to many countries and the places that have been called hostile are the places where I have found the nicest people.
Understand one thing, that there are certain situations that are not in our hands. So better ignore it.
So with these 06 travel tips I would try to help you stay safe in foreign lands.
So let’s get started.
Politeness: Politeness and a smiley face are one of the best things a traveler like you can do. In any part of the world, if you keep a smiley face and be polite, most difficult situations can be tackled.
Say no: always keep one thing in mind; if you smell something fishy, say “no”. Like most of the time, your gut feelings have a clue of what to expect. For example, if someone is trying to be friends with you and you don’t feel right, just say “no” in a polite way.
Don’t Travel Overnight: Yes, this is another point you always keep in mind if you are traveling solo. If you are traveling from point A to point B, it is always suggested to go the distance in the morning.
Knowledge of Scams: Before visiting any country, be it Great Britain, India, Malaysia, Russia or any other country, you should do your homework on the various scams that other travelers face. Doing homework is a must for everyone. So try to do your research. It will surely help you to understand what to do and not face the same problem.
Appropriate Dress: In some cultures, people prefer to dress modestly when visiting churches, mosques, temples, and other religious places. Also, if you have tattoos try to cover them up as not everyone likes it. So always try to cover your body and not show your skin in some countries.
Cabin Safety: Always try to keep your belongings with you in the back seat so that if you need to jump out of the cabin you can do so without hesitation. Then always keep the taxi number with you, so that in the event of an accident you can share the number with the police or your relatives.
