Traveling alone needs a lot of courage. Especially if you are going out solo for the first time, you need to be extra cautious. Traveling solo is something that everyone must do at least once in their lives. Many people describe their first solo trip as intensely satisfying religious experience. So if you are going solo or have plans to do so, then keep these things in mind to help you have a pleasant, safer and a happier solo trip –

  1. Trust everyone and no one

It’s okay to meet new people and explore a little bit. But it’s not good to be vulnerable at the same time. Make sure that you don’t trust anyone so easily while traveling or give in your personal details. Also, don’t trust anyone with your money. Most of the scam artists pretend to be extra nice, so guard up against such people.

  1. Make copies of your important documents

What will you do if you get robbed? How will you make it back home of you lost everything while traveling? The simple answer to that is – digital copies. Never forget to make extra copies of every important document before you start traveling. You can make hard copies to keep in your handbag along with the digital version of them. Simply scan them to your phone, tablet or your personal email for safe keeping. They can be used in case of emergencies to get you home safely.

  1. Avoid single supplement or use reliable booking site

Most of the frequent travelers are familiar with the tour operators that often tack extra out of your bill because of the fact that they are not going to make extra money out of single occupant. So you might end up paying way more than those traveling with partners. One way to avoid is to look for booking site that offers roommate matching. You can look for someone with complementary personality to share your room with and pay far less.

The other way around is to use a reliable booking site such as Trip Smart Travel Solutions. They have a plethora of hotel and flight options integrated into their travel api. They offer travel solutions within every budget with a range of hotels, activities and car rental offerings. You can even modify your itinerary to suit your needs.

  1. Work your network

Once you have booked your trip, you can ask your friends around to suggest you about potential contacts for travel help. You never know if you come across with someone whose friend or relative has relocated to the destination you are traveling to and is willing to show you around. Also, expanding your network means that you might get interesting visitors or connections.

  1. Stay well connected

It is good to occasionally ‘check-in’ on Facebook or other social media sites while traveling. Not only that you can brag about your trip but also let your network know where in the world you are. In case, you are in some trouble, your network may come for your help if they already know your whereabouts.

  1. Let your closed ones know your complete itinerary details back home

Make sure that someone back home knows every detail about your trip itinerary. Whether you are backpacking or on a leisure trip, give your family members all the relevant information of your trip such as flight booking, hotel reservation etc. It is a good idea to do that ahead of time and have a backup in case something goes wrong.

  1. Take a book

Long train journeys and bus trips are perfect for reading. So if you are traveling solo, always bring a book with you.
