I’d like to welcome Raushan Jaiswal as a guest blogger today. He created the cool infographic about safety tips for female solo travelers. Enjoy.
There is no denying that travelling solo can be one of the most insightful adventures in the life. Travelling on your own is fun, challenging, and exhilarating. One of the greatest joys of travelling alone is the freedom to do whatever you like, whenever you like.
Solo travelling gives one the freedom to experience the world without the influence of a friend or partner’s tastes, prejudices, or preferences. You can discover more about yourself at the same time you’re discovering more about your travel. This makes the solo travel delightfully self-indulgent and an ideal opportunity to try something new and exciting.
But solo travelling, especially for a woman, has some perils too. The world is not safe for a woman as we wish it to be. Solo women travelers are more vulnerable to security threats like robbery, harrassments, scams, etc. These safety concerns are the very reason that is keeping most travel enthusiasts away from indulging in our dream travel.
Don’t let your voyage of self discovery be ruined by the evils of the world. A little preparation and common sense can both keep you safe and get you through the rough spots.
Below is a comprehensive list of safety tips for solo female travelers prepared by a travel company
Be prepared and be safe by following the solo female traveler’s safety guide while you are on your life changing journey. Enjoy your journey to the fullest by following these tips because when you feel safe, you’re better able to relax and enjoy your trip.
While there is a greater risk for women traveling alone, solo travel is a dangerous business for both genders. Although these safety tips were written with women’s safety in mind, most of these tips are applicable to both men and women.

#12 and #14 have reversed titles. What is a “cat keychain?” Might need one of those if it is an effective deterrent. I assume Mace is legal everywhere? And wearing a wedding ring is a great deterrent for shutting down some stalkers but just seems to encourage others! By and large this is a great list of things to do and to watch out for, very good work. Thank you.
Thanks so much Bonnie…Very observant I appreciate the comments. Raushan did a great job with this
A lot of these tips also apply to men as well of course!
Absolutely Andrew! Many of them can apply across the spectrum. Thanks for commenting
