Stay safe while travelling. When travelling alone it is important to remember a few simple safety rules and tips. If you are heading out by yourself, let someone know where you are going, especially at night time.Keep to open and public places, especially at night.
Don’t carry all (or a lot) of your money around – keep some locked securely away, along with an emergency card in your hotel room or cabin. Make sure you have access to a few emergency contacts if you think it’s necessary.
Dress sensibly. No matter where you are in the world, if you’re heading to the big tourist draws, avoid wearing expensive jewellery when you’re out during the day. Leave your more valuable accessories in your hotel room and save them for dinner in the evening.
Balance planning with spontaneity. It’s important to plan ahead and have a general idea of what you want to do and where you want to stay, but don’t let that smother all spontaneity in your trip. You can choose to go where you want on a whim, and it is worth embracing your freedom to do that while you’re away.
Whether you are travelling alone, or with a companion, make sure you stay safe, but most of all enjoy you holiday!
