With this article today I am going to share with you 06 travel tips for solo female travelers. So if you’re a solo traveler who has safety questions, these hacks are sure to help keep you safe.
Being a travel blogger, I always get emails from female readers regarding their safety when they are traveling alone or even with a companion.
I think we’ve all heard these lines:
The world is not a pretty place.
This country is not safe
You can be a target for the locals
Well, fuck that!
Yes, there are people with bad intentions but believe me, the number is much less.
I have traveled to many countries and the places described as hostile are the ones where I have found the most friendly people.
Understand one thing, that there are certain situations that are not in our hands. So it is better to ignore it.
So with these 6 travel tips, I’m going to try to help you stay safe on foreign lands.
Let’s get started.
Politeness: Politeness and a smiling face are among the best things a traveler can do. In any part of the world, if you keep a smiling face and remain polite, most difficult situations can be handled.
Saying No: Always keep one thing in mind; If you smell something fishy, say “no.” Like most of the time, your gut feelings have an idea of what’s coming out on top. For example, if someone is trying to be your friend and you don’t feel right about it, just say “no” in a polite way.
Do not travel during the nights: Yes, this is another point that you always keep in mind if you are traveling alone. If you are traveling from point A to point B, it is always a good idea to cover the distance during the morning.
Know the Scams: Before visiting any country be it Britain, India, Malaysia, Russia or any other country, you should do your homework on the various scams that other travelers face. Doing your homework is a must for anyone. So try to do your research. It will definitely help you understand what to do and what not to do when you are faced with the same problem.
Appropriate clothing: In some cultures, people prefer to dress modestly when visiting churches, mosques, temples, and other religious places. In addition, if you have a tattoo, try to cover it up, as not everyone likes it. So always try to cover your body and not show your skin in some countries.
Cab Safety: Always try to keep your belongings with you in the back seat so that if you need to jump out of the cab, you can do so without any second thought. After that, always keep the cab number with you, so that you can share the number with the police or your relatives in case of any mishaps.
So here were my six travel tips for solo female travelers. I hope you loved her.
