Tips By Women Who Chose Traveling Over Secure Life
With the dynamics of travel industry changing over the past one decade, a large number of women travel alone. Women who have been travelling alone over these years have come up with some worthy tips which are likely to help you travel alone and be safe.
6. Keep your valuables in different locations
You should take only your personal credit or debit cards while travelling and avoid carrying too much hard cash. These cards should not be placed at one place only. Instead, you should keep your valuables in multiple locations like hip pocket, shoe or socks.
Carrying all these in your purse is a risky assumption and having a money belt is cumbersome. In case of any robbery attempt, all your valuables will be gone in one instance and you will lose all.
5. Do not appear as if you are travelling alone
Never appear to travel alone. In case you are at an alien place, do not let others assume that you have come for the first time to the place. Even if someone asks you, shrug them off and say that you come often to the city or town where you happen to be at that time.
4. Plan your visit
Plan the places and locations where you intend to visit. Never pull out a map or check your GPS for routes in public places and cab. Do not leave your map or GPS with markings in hotel on locations you intend to visit. Check out all these in personal and appear confident when in public or in an alien situation.
3. Do not loiter around
When you alight from flight or train, do not loiter around the station for too long. While choosing cab for the onward journeys do not wait around for too long. Bad elements are found at such locations only and in case you keep moving at a fast pace, you will never come in their view.
2. Chose the hotel carefully
It is advisable to book the hotel prior you leave for the vacation trip. In places where such option is not available, try to opt for a reputed or big hotel which has ample guests around. Some hotels have women only floors and you can opt for these too.
Try booking a room which is not near the staircase and is one floor above the basement.
1. Don’t become friendly too soon
When travelling alone do not become friendly with alien people too soon. Do not socialize with strangers and in case you are in any such situation, limit the amount of alcohol you take.
