More In­dian women are hit­ting the road alone than ever. While we all en­joy a solo hol­i­day but it’s im­per­a­tive to think about one’s safety. There­fore, next time you plan a solo trip then fol­low these tips to en­sure a safe va­ca­tion. Plan the jour­ney well and book your ac­com­mo­da­tion/ ho­tel/home­s­tay in ad­vance. Do your home­work and try to get as much knowl­edge as you can get about the places you are plan­ning to visit. Talk to peo­ple, make friends, but do not tell ran­dom peo­ple where you are stay­ing and pro­vide other such per­sonal in­for­ma­tion. Keep all your travel re­lated doc­u­ments safe. Take pho­to­graphs of your doc­u­ments and save them in your phone, in case you mis­place the orig­i­nals. Do not give the im­pres­sion that you are trav­el­ling alone. Walk and talk with con­fi­dence. It’s a nice idea to carry some kind of de­fence mech­a­nism with you. It could be a pep­per spray or a per­sonal safety alarm. These are easy and com­pact to carry, and can be handy in case of an emer­gency. Act smart. Don’t keep all your money in one place. Try to hide money in the most un­ex­pected places. Try to dress like a lo­cal. If you are trav­el­ling alone, you should try to blend with the lo­cals as much as pos­si­ble. Re­spect their be­liefs and don’t wear any­thing which you think could di­vert at­ten­tion to­wards you. Trust your in­stinct. If you are not get­ting pos­i­tive vibes from a per­son, don’t go with them. Learn to say no to peo­ple. This will save you from any kind of bluff.
