women, woman, solo, traveler, daytripper, female, vagabond, whistlerLearn simple tips and tricks to keep you smiling in each country you visit with our top 10 travel tips for women travelers:

  1. Read up on a few points of cultural differences and some words of the local language as well as learning their equivalent to “911.” Blending in and having a plan are key to safe travel.
  2. Not only should you consider boosting your immune system beforehand with herbs like echinacea or commercial products like Cold FX, also consider any issues that could arise during your trip.  Your own personal mini-first aid kit helps avoid panicked late night runs when you’re not at your best. And, if you’re traveling in developing countries, it’s also must. You probably won’t find what you’re looking for there.
  3. Bring a rubber doorstop as additional security for weak (or non-existent) deadbolts.
  4. If your hotel clerk isn’t discreet when informing you of your room number, calmly ask for a new room and a lower tone of voice. You never know who’s listening in.
  5. Call the front desk to let them know your room needs cleaning. The “Please Clean” sign hanging on your door is an invitation for burgling. (And the “Do Not Dwomen, female, solo, travelers, tour, car, hire, bc, canada,isturb” sign works equally well to help prevent this when you’re out.) Also, don’t use room service breakfast door hangers because they ask for number of guest(s). You don’t want anyone to know you are alone.
  6. Get to know the staff in your hotel if your stay is over a day or two. Just a nod and a hello is all it takes to be friendly and makes it all the more likely they’ll help you when you need it most.
  7. Stay alert and constantly aware of your surroundings. Try to minimize alcohol consumption and avoid constant interaction with your devices. Paying attention at all times keeps you proactive rather than reactive.
  8. Use the ATM machines in the daytime and in populated spots to withdraw local currency in small amounts. You also get the best rates and won’t loose much if you’re pick-pocketed.
  9. Get a hotel postcard from the counter with the hotel’s info on it and keep it on you when you’re out. Life on the road can get confusing enough.
  10. Cities can be intimidating and especially if you’re traveling alone. If you’re headed someplace interesting, make arrangements to hire a sedan for the day and see the sights with a personally guided tour.
