Girls, are you planning a solo vacation? Here are a few safety tips to follow
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.
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU KEEP YOUR TRAVEL DOCUMENTS SAFE. MAKE SURE TO CARRY PHOTO-COPIES OF YOUR TRAVEL DOCUMENTS
