Solo Travel: Things to Know Before You Kick-start Your Luxury Trip

There’s nothing quite like travelling to a far-off destination on your own to sightsee, explore, and experience a new culture. While travelling with a group can be fun, a solo journey lets you experience the freedom of no rules or schedule other than your own.

When it comes to luxury adventure holidays, it can be tricky to plan and execute all on your own. That is where SevenTravel comes in. Whether you want an adrenaline-pumping adventure or a wellness retreat, we will help you plan the most memorable bucket-list travel experiences possible. 

This article will outline five things you ought to know before you kick-start your luxury solo trip. Following these tips will help you have the safest and most memorable time on your solo journey.

Choose Your Destination Smartly

There are so many travel blogs available these days, each one discussing the ‘best places to travel’. However, there is no one-size-fits-all destination that can be regarded as the best solo travel destination for everyone. 

While there are a handful of destinations that most people want to tick off their bucket list, it is important to choose the destination of your solo journey smartly. If you are looking for an adrenaline-filled adventure, your ideal travel destination will be different than if you were looking for a peaceful wellness sojourn. 

Therefore, before you book your solo trip, make sure you choose your destination smartly based on your travel needs, desires, and preferences. That said, if you are not sure which tourist spot you should pick, talking to a travel operator like SevenTravel can greatly help. Reach out to us or look up the travel destinations on our website to pick the best one for your next adventure.

Pack Appropriately 

When packing for luxury adventure holidays, it is crucial that you pack appropriately. Ensure that you take the weather forecast of your destination for when you’ll be visiting into account. Moreover, you should also do some homework and find out whether there are any cultural standards or dress codes in the country of your choice. 

One of the most common mistakes that solo travellers make is to wear clothes that make them stand out as easy-to-target tourists. Consider dressing up more like the locals to blend into the crowd, especially when going souvenir shopping. 

Make a Communication Plan 

While going on a solo journey is all about you, you don’t want to leave behind worried family and friends who are constantly concerned about your whereabouts and safety. Therefore, before you kick-start your luxury solo trip, make a communication plan with your loved ones to set their hearts at ease. 

The good news is that Wi-Fi is available in even some of the most remote parts of the world today. Therefore, coordinate some dates and times when you will be in touch with your loved ones over the phone. Come up with a communication plan that works for both you and your family so that their minds are at ease and you can focus on enjoying every bit of your luxury solo trip. 

Keep Your Belongings Safe 

Whether you are on a solo sojourn in the mountains or on a luxury safari vacation, when travelling solo, you and you alone are responsible for keeping your belongings safe. Thankfully, there are plenty of steps you can take to ensure that your belongings remain safe and sound for the entirety of your trip. 

With that said, if you take assistance from a travel operator like SevenTravel to plan your itinerary, you will know which areas to visit and which to skip. 

We, at SevenTravel, know tourist destinations inside out, which is why we can rightly guide you on where to go and which places to avoid. This way, you have a better chance of avoiding locations that might not be the safest for solitary foreigners. But, even so, always be aware of your surroundings and inform yourself on which areas and neighbourhoods are known to be dangerous. Importantly, don’t leave your accommodation carrying all your money in case someone does try to pick your pocket. 

There are many backpacks made for solo travellers that are designed to be pickpocket-proof. Investing in such a backpack can save you from the mental stress that goes along with keeping your belongings safe during a solo trip. 

Get Travel Insurance 

Although nobody likes thinking about it, getting sick, or worse, injured, during your solo trip is always a possibility. Even if the odds of such a mishap happening are slim, it’s good to come prepared. After all, better safe than sorry.

Therefore, it can really set a solo traveller’s mind at ease to get travel insurance that covers both health-related and non-health-related misfortunes. 

Final Words

Luxury adventure holidays can be very overwhelming and stressful to plan out and execute on your own, especially if you choose to travel solo. However, with SevenTravel, all you need to do is provide us with your preferences and needs, and we will take care of the rest. 

So get in touch with us to choose from a number of bucket-list travel experiences and prepare for a solo trip experience that you will remember for the rest of your days.
