Practical Advice for Women Traveling Alone





Family ResortsWomen are beginning to realize that men are unnecessary, especially when it comes to traveling. That’s why more and more women are
choosing to explore the world alone without being bogged down by companions who can’t afford bucket-list trips or can’t take the time off to spend a month abroad.

Ladies, it’s imperative to do your research and speak to our professionals before embarking on your adventure. You should be conscious of the unique cultural situations and safety concerns inherent within each destination. No matter how smart and fit you are, one poor decision could mar a perfectly good holiday. So keep in mind these simple tips and precautions to ensure a safe and enriching journey.

Before you leave, share your itinerary with the folks back home. Let them know where you’re planning on going, even if nothing is set in stone. Set up regular check-in times, and  be in touch when you get to each new location.

Pack light and try to dress like a local. A quick way to call attention is by bogging yourself down with suitcases. It’s also hard to keep track of more than one bag, increasing the chances of one growing legs and disappearing. Bring items you can easily carry and keep track of.

Since you are traveling solo, stash your cash all over. Make sure you have a few stockpiles spread throughout your bag, on you, or in your purse. Cash is universal, so having a little extra in a hidden pocket or a shoe can mean the difference between walking back to your hotel and taking a taxi at the end of the night through unfamiliar streets.

When you get to your location, don’t be afraid to talk to the locals and make friends. Find out what the area is really like, but be cautious. Don’t give out too much information about where you are staying or who you are traveling with. Use “we” when you are referring to your travel companions if you find yourself in uncomfortable conversations.

Most importantly, enjoy your trip!
