Guide for solo travellers
Travelers Today says that you do not need to be a brave explorer to travel by yourself these days and the travel website has revealed its top tips for people that are considering solo travel.

Singles holiday breaks are increasing in popularity and now people can enjoy travelling alone just as much as they would with other people. However, there are some things you need to consider if you decide to travel on your own and an article on Travelers Today has revealed its top tips for solo travellers:

Do your homework

Travelers Today recommends travellers check online forums as the best spots to find out information from locals about culture, security and more.

Getting connected

The guide notes that taking your mobile phone is essential, but checking out where local internet cafes are based is also useful, especially if you want to keep connected with friends and family.

Pack smartly

When packing your suitcase and carry-on bag you should put all your essentials in the bag you take on the plane as should your suitcase get lost at least you will still have all the major items you need. The article also recommends separating money and cards so that should you lose your wallet you still have back up.

Be alert

Try to avoid wearing expensive jewellery or showing off your expensive gadgets. Try to stick to the main travel routes as well.

Be imaginative

Don’t tell strangers that you are travelling alone and try to stash cash and other expensive items in hidden away compartments when you go swimming at a beach or swimming pool.
