Can you travel the world safely as a woman? Definitely. Women are traveling alone more than ever now, but there are still greater obstacles for us. However, following a few basic safety tips, staying alert, and listening to your intuition will always help you stay out of bad situations, whether you’re traveling solo or not.

Here are a few tips that will help you explore your dream destinations without a worry:

Research Your Destination Thoroughly

This is something every traveler needs to keep in mind. Researching is pretty fun, as you can scope out cities you want to visit, activities you want to do, the food you want to eat, and of course, look up safety information.

Check which neighborhoods need to be avoided, if taxis are safe, where medical centers are, how safe your accommodation is, how will you get around, etc.

Keep Your Valuables On You

Well, try not to bring anything too valuable like expensive jewelry, your birth certification, or other important documents on the trip. But you still will be carrying a passport, your smartphone, perhaps a Kindle, DSLR, or a laptop. Keep all of this in a day bag and never in your backpack or luggage.

Only Carry What You Need

Don’t walk around with all your credit cards, too much money, and your passport. Just keep what you need and lock the rest in your room or locker.

Don’t Trust Too Quickly

When you’re traveling, it’s very tempting to socialize and make friends with locals and other travelers. However, you have to be careful. Con artists seem like great friends and wait for you to leave your valuables unattended. We recommend not trusting strangers and leaving your valuables with them.

Don’t Drink Too Much Alcohol

This is a safety tip that should be used everywhere. Alcohol slows your reaction times and dulls your senses, leaving you pretty vulnerable. Not ideal at all when you’re traveling alone. Drink less, have water in between, and be aware of what you’re drinking.

Blend In

To avoid pickpockets, it’s good to blend in. Know the culture and dressing of the place you’re visiting and stick to that. The more you stand out, the more you’re calling criminal attention to yourself.
