TOP 10 TIPS FOR FEMALE SOLO TRAVELLERS

Josh okungbaiye

More and more people are travelling solo as a way for self-discovery and character development. It's fantastic to explore and see what the World has to offer, but its important to stay safe out there. We know that for some of you, this may be your first time travelling to another country alone. Just to help you out, here are our top 10 tips for female solo travellers. Enjoy! :-)

(1) Only use Official Taxis

Check with the information point, the airport officials or hotel information point and find out where the official taxis are. Do not go into a taxi that you have not called for.

(2) Arrive in the daytime

Arrive in the daytime; there will be a lot more people walking around that can help you.  Also, trying to find your way around a city you have never been to is a lot less scary in the daytime.

(3) Learn the places to avoid

Research the city or country you will be visiting in advance. Find out which parts of the city are safe to stay in. Do not compromise your safety just to save money. Make sure you have travel insurance, take the taxi instead of walking at night. Be very vigilant and aware of your surroundings.

(4) Photocopy your travel documents

Losing your passport or flight tickets is a common problem and can ruin your vacation. To avoid this, make sure to have photocopies of your passport, flight tickets and any other important documentation. Put a copy, in your bag, in your purse, in your hotel room or have it saved in your phone. You never know when you might need it.

(5) Avoid giving away personal information

While travelling solo, you will meet a lot of interesting people. Remember to be vigilant and do not let strangers know what hotel you are staying in. Also, do not tell the person you are alone.

(6) Check out travel alerts

Check for any travel alerts in the country you will be visiting and look out for any alerts on wars or any other state of emergency situations. In addition, research the common crimes and scams in the country so you are well prepared and watchful.

(7) Dressing Requirements

Some countries are a lot stricter than others in terms of dressing. Before you travel check on the dressing requirements for that country or city and dress accordingly.

(8) Listen to the Locals

If locals or hotel staff tells you to not go to a certain area because it is dangerous. Do not go. In more nuanced situations, always follow your gut.

(9) Act Confident

Even though you may be unsure of yourself at times. Always act confident and assertive, it will make you less of a target.

(10) Let people know where you are

Visiting a new country or city is very exciting and you can get so caught up in the fun that you forget to update your

TOP 5 TIPS FOR TRAVELLING AS A COUPLE

Josh okungbaiye

(1) Choose a destination you are both interested in

Choosing a destination that interests you both is key to your trip as a couple being a success. You do not want to start off on the wrong foot where one of you is not happy about being in a particular country or city. It will just lead to tension and bad vibes, which will ruin your holiday. So to avoid such negativity, sit down together and decide as a team where your next adventure will be.

(2) Decide on a budget

Planning your budget is extremely important, especially when it comes to things like food and entertainment. In order to add structure into your spending, try and set a daily budget. Get a sense of how expensive things will be at your destination by checking TripAdvisor. Another useful tip is to watch Youtube videos about the particular country you will be visiting. All of the available content will get you both mentally prepared on what to expect and it will give you both a good reference point on how to decide on your budget. This is key to really getting the most out of your trip together and your wallet will thank you later.

(3) Do Something Romantic

Do something romantic everyday. This will give you guys a chance to communicate and remind each other why you fell in love with each other.

(4) Laugh when things go wrong

Things will definitely go wrong during your trip. It may be missing your flight or even arriving at the wrong hotel. When things go wrong, avoid blaming each other and try and see the humour in the situation. Good memories together can often come of situations that seem bad.

Situations that go wrong can even bring you and your partner closer together. In a few years down the road, both of you will look back and laugh.

(5) Compromise

Compromise is the golden relationship rule. On holiday you may not always see eye to eye, but try to compromise so you can both can get the most out of your trip together.

Be flexible and spontaneous. Things may not always go according to plan, but as long as you are both comfortable with that, your trip together will be one to remember.
