top 3 solo female travel safety tips

The full post has over 30 safety tips, but I believe they all fit in these three categories! Here are the top 3 ways to stay safe while traveling alone!


Travel safety begins before you even book a ticket! Make sure you research and plan well. Here are the top two things to research before your trip!

research your destination

Of course, you'll research your destination, but this is more than just the best things to do. Research any safety concerns and familiarize yourself with local culture and traditions

Review hotels

Spend time in the review section of hotel booking sites. Pay special attention to any safety concerns, particularly from women.

Stay aware

It's important to maintain awareness of the people we are with and our surroundings, here's how.

Don't wear headphones

If anything, wear one tiny headphone in your ear for directions while walking, otherwise make sure you can listen to what's going on around you.

trust your intuition

If you're with people or in a situation that "feels off" do your best to quickly remove yourself.

Stay connected

Let your family and friends know what you're up to!

share your location

Share your location with loved ones so they know you are where you said you'd be. You can also share your itinerary so they know where to contact you if needed.

delay posting on social media

Wait until after you leave a destination to share your experiences there. This not only keeps you safe, but it also helps you stay in the moment!
