You are bitten by the travel bug and want to travel alone. Well here are some pointers on how to make your trip successful.Tips for Traveling Alone & Keeping Safe When Traveling Alone

If you have never traveled alone it would be a good idea to test your capability by taking some time off and spending some time alone in an unfamiliar city, which could be near your home. This ‘dry run’ would answer many of your questions regarding whether you are comfortable going to a distant place alone, you like traveling with strangers or you enjoy the peace.

The most preferred vacation packages specially designed for solo travelers are the luxury spa vacations, a trip to places which offer something to the art museum lovers like a trip to Paris and Florence or some cruise vacations for the singles. Other than this you obviously can explore a place you desperately want to see.

It is generally suggested that if you want to travel alone it is better to join with a small group. Group traveling has its own benefits, it is your support in a foreign land and your fellow travelers can also be of your assistance, in case you need one. The camaraderie among the people in a small group sometimes creates a strong bond of a lifetime.

It would make sense to pay a little more while traveling alone. This somewhat ensures your physical safety and enhances your mental peace. Always opt for registered cabs and buses in unknown places and never try to wave down a cab in the middle of a street. Get transfers to the airport from your hotel people and hire guides while traveling to remote areas.

Take care of your belongings as there is no one to watch your back. If the hotel provides a safe, use it to stash your valuables, also try to keep a spare stash of cash in a different place from your regular stash. This is a security net in case you lose your wallet.

Finally do inform all your concerned family and friends of your trip by giving them requisite phone numbers and address of your hotel. You should also tell them your rough itinerary and dates of traveling. It would be a good idea to keep in touch with them through email, providing regular updates.
