Planning a solo trip this summer? Before packing your bags, keep the following tips in mind.

There is no experience that can compare to traveling alone. You get to be by yourself, explore the area on your own terms, and perhaps also learn more about your own self. It is an uplifting experience. However, nevertheless. Obviously, safety comes first!

So while you pack your things and choose your trip playlist, you can refer to this brief solo travel guide. We had a conversation with Niharika Nigam, Director, Business Development, . For a secure and enjoyable solo travel experience, she gave some crucial advice.

PLANNING AHEAD

Living impulsively is one of the benefits of travelling alone, but it's advised that you have a few essentials prepared. Make sure, for instance, that you are aware of things like the typical means of transportation, the distance between your lodging and the destinations you intend to visit, and how congested the roads are at night.

TRAVEL  ESSENTIALS

When going on a solo vacation, you should be sure to pack things like hand sanitizer, pepper spray, and Pee Safe for public facilities. You'd be shocked at how many locations along the journey might leave you with a bad network and no reception, so always have cash on hand.

PLANNING ON TRYING ADVENTURE SPORT

Always do your research on the experience of the adventure operators you choose. It's important to take this seriously. Look at the customer reviews, the number of years they've been in business, and their safety requirements.

BUY YOUR OWN BEVERAGES

When you're by yourself, you shouldn't trust anyone with your drinks. Purchase bottled water and have your own drinks prepared. Drinks are spiked more frequently than you might realise, and it never pays to wing it.

KEEP IN TOUCH WITH YOUR LOVED ONES

Make sure your family and friends are aware of where you are staying, and attempt to contact them at least once every day. Have a power bank with you and keep your phone charged. Also think about letting family members know about your itinerary.
