Tips for Travelling alone

Travelling alone can seem daunting when you don’t have all the answers to what-ifs. Here are some tips to help you on your solo journey.

Take time to consider what you want out of your trip. Doing your homework before departing will help you deal with any unforeseen circumstances.

Learn to say “no, thank you” in the local language as well as the local hand gestures for no. Keeping local help numbers handy means, you always know where to turn in an emergency.

Start your day early if sightseeing is more important to you than the nightlife. This means you avoid the regular tourist rush times and get unspoilt time wherever you go.

Social media is also a fantastic tool to meet other travellers, including those doing it solo. They may have been in situations or experienced things you have not, expanding your knowledge of what to do and where to turn if you need help.
