Leading Online Travel Agency offers tips for first-time solo travelers
Women are undeniably changing the travel industry as shown by a rise in popularity in both female group travel and in female solo travel. CheapOair.com is proud to support the traveling women of the world and has some advice for women planning to set out on their first-ever adventure alone.
Do your research
There are some places that are very welcoming for female travelers and others that should be visited with caution. When choosing your destination, it’s a good practice to research local laws, customs, and travel advisories. This will come in handy when you’re deciding where to go, where to stay, how to get around, and even what to pack.
Talk to a travel agent
With all the information available online, sometimes reviewing your options can get overwhelming. A travel agent can help you sort through all of the flights, hotels, rental cars, and activities to find the best options for you. They can also help plan your entire itinerary from start to finish to ensure everything fits together perfectly. Some travel sites even have special phone-only deals that can help you save money. Talking to an agent might sound old-fashioned, but there’s nothing wrong in working with an experienced travel professional to make sure you get the exact trip you want. CheapOair’s trained travel agents are available 24/7 by telephone at 1-800-566-2345.
Be aware of your surroundings
Once you’ve selected where you want to go, CheapOair.com recommends studying maps and travel guides on the places you plan to visit. Try to find out if there are any areas or neighborhoods that are considered unsafe or should be avoided by tourist. Knowing where you are will not only make you feel more comfortable, but it will also help you look more confident. The more confidence you have, the less vulnerable you will seem to anyone looking to take advantage of tourists.
Get outside of your comfort zone
Solo travel is a great time to really challenge yourself. Put your devices away and talk to someone you wouldn’t normally talk to, go on an excursion you wouldn’t normally go on, and embrace the fact that you are the sole decision maker and it is only your opinion that matters for the duration of the trip.
