Women are vulnerable! Sounds true but it definitely rings a bell in women’s mind that why do they need to be thought as vulnerable to any mishap? Be it traveling or business trips, there has been a steep rise in women traveling abroad all alone. And because of their vulnerability, they are likely to encounter more problems. So, here are some winning tips on how you can counteract your susceptibility to any mishap or avoid any problem and yet enjoy your trip to its fullest no matter at what corner of globe you are.

Make it a Holiday to remember

Mug up the Place

Sounds strange? Well, before you head off, you must have a fair idea about the country and place you are going to visit. Knowing about the culture of the country will facilitate enjoying your trip while being a part of the same culture. You can easily get this information from a tourist guide for any country.

Passports and Visas

Before planning your trip, you must be sure of your passport validity. If it’s not valid, then don’t delay and apply for a new one. For the countries you plan to visit, keep all your required travel documents or visas updated and ready.

Say No to Valuables

Carrying extra jewelry and credit cards will simply invite anti-social elements like thieves. So, it’s better to leave all valuables at home. Don’t even put on costume jewelry that only looks expensive. That will pose an unnecessary risk to your security as thieves would hardly have any idea about real and artificial until after they steal it.

Don’t Forget This 

You are going away from your native place and will be alone. So, dont forget to leave these important details with your relatives or friends so that they can track and help you in any urgency.

Health Insurance and Prescription Drugs

Check to see whether you hold adequate health insurance coverage for your visit abroad. If not, you must purchase supplemental traveler’s insurance to keep your trip safe and sound. If you are on any prescription drugs, make sure that your stock can cover your entire trip including some extra medications in case your stay is delayed. Keep your prescriptions only in labeled containers to avoid any misunderstanding of drug trafficking.

Be Confident

Be confident when you land in a foreign territory. Look, act and move as if you well versed in the ways. Be confident in doing everything from shopping to asking directions. This will help you stay away from any potential risk. 


Hotel Safety

Be smart and alert while choosing your stays and hotels. Inquire about the hotel safety and check for an easy and reliable transportation. It would be great if you choose a hotel near by most of the places you plan to visit. Once you enter your room, check whether all doors and windows have working locks. Don’t open the door without peeking out of the keyhole. 



And finally the most important tip or precaution you MUST take. Dressing up conservatively and inconspicuously will help you to a great extent in a foreign territory. Just wear what looks attractive yet goes with the local culture. Local women can be of great help to you in this concern. Dont wear any clothes that could spark harassment. 

Remember, your trip’s success and pleasure is all in your hand. With a sound knowledge, good and professional guidance and precautions, you can enjoy a hassle free, charming and memorable trip all alone.
