When Traveling Solo

You should be aware of what is around you at all times. That may seem like a given, but so many people are so overwhelmed with the sights and smells of the city around them, that they forget to stay aware. While you should most definitely enjoy yourself, you should carefully survey your surroundings regardless of where you are.

While traveling at night is a good way to take advantage of lower flight rates, this is not a good choice for someone that is traveling alone. It is okay if you are going to a city that you are familiar with in most cases, but if you are going somewhere new you should be traveling during the day. Most criminals strike at night and you want to make sure not to make yourself vulnerable to them.

Never let any strangers know that you are traveling alone. You may see a nice looking person with a pleasant face, but do not let that fool you. Be polite and enjoy their conversation if you are in a very public area. Never give them any clue that you are alone and never give out any of your hotel information.

If you have anything that is of value, it should be on your person as much as possible. You do not want to have to worry about any of your things getting stolen while you are enjoying your travels. Use the safe at the hotel you are staying at if you have anything valuable that is too large to carry around with you.

While you should have a little cash on you when you travel, the majority of your money should be in traveler's checks. It is usually advised that you take credit or debit cards in order to increase the convenience, but using them may rack up a lot of fees that can be avoided if you use traveler's checks.

Check in with your family and friends as often as possible when you are traveling alone. You want them to know that you are fine so they don't worry, but you can also advise them of any moves you plan on making during your trip. This will come in handy if something happens to you because they will know what to tell the proper authorities as far as your whereabouts are concerned.

Go with your first instinct, even if it turns out to be incorrect. It is much better to be safe than to be sorry.

As stated above, traveling alone can be quite exciting, but it can leave you vulnerable to crime. Use the advice given to you in the article above to make sure that you remain safe and sound while on your next solo trip.
