Traveling alone is a really big deal. It is a journey of self discovery that grows you as a person.
To make the experience memorable, here are some tips and hacks from Niharika Nigam, the director of business development at Jumpin Heights – the travel company for solo-travelers.
Create your itinerary before traveling: Work out the logistics and choose your dates well in advance.
Be organized: Come prepared with photocopies, maps, guides and local bus passes as these can all be bought or borrowed from locals on the streets through cash. This will also ensure that you don’t need to worry about not being able to get around in a foreign country if you run into any trouble with language barriers or any other mishaps on your trip.
Carry less baggage: Travel light so it’s easier to navigate through areas like train stations and airport terminals with less hassle. You can always buy souvenirs on the way back home when
Travel insurance: Always carry your own travel insurance. It is never too late to buy it.
Have some fun with it: Get out of your comfort zone and indulge in activities you normally wouldn’t do with family or friends.
Suit up: Pack light but don’t be left without essentials because as soon as things go south, traveling can become a nightmare!
Keep your passport safe!
