Tips for Solo Dining

Many solo travellers find dining alone most unpleasant.

  • Chat with the service people.
  • Choose the right eatery. Sitting alone with a book in a cafe isn't as unusual as a table for one at a restaurant.
  • Bring reading material.
  • Eat in if you can't endure another public meal alone.
  • Eat well.

General Safety When Traveling Alone

  • Do your homework. Know how long it takes and how much it costs to get from the airport to your hotel.
  • Arrive during the day. Areas around bus and train stations can be scary or deserted, and small towns tend to shut down early.
  • Book a hotel with a 24-hour front desk if you'll be arriving late.
  • Check your maps and transportation schedules before leaving your hotel/rental car.
  • Register with the State Department. U.S. citizens travelling internationally can consider signing up for the free Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). It could assist you in case of an emergency.

Personal Safety When Traveling Alone

  • Stick to open and public places, especially at night.
  • Trust yourself. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it.
  • Appear confident. Walk confidently and with direction. If you are lost, walk into a shop or restaurant and ask for directions. Don't let on that you are alone.
  • Leave a copy of your itinerary with a family member at home, and keep regular contact via phone, text, etc.
  • Trust everyone and no one. While you might want to meet new people, it makes you more vulnerable. Be open-minded, but keep your guard up enough to ensure your safety.

Travelling Solo

Travelling Solo

Travelling alone can be the ultimate in self-indulgence: You can do what you want to do and rest when you want. Your mistakes are your own, and your triumphs are more exciting.

But without a companion to watch your back, you are more vulnerable. But, a little preparation and common sense can save you money and give you the ultimate experience.

When You’ve Had Enough of Single Travel

The constant sensory input and vigilance of travelling alone can wear you down. Don't be afraid to back off a bit.

When travelling abroad, seek out an expat bar where you can hang out and speak your native tongue. A night in your hotel room can often give you enough of a reprieve to send you out ready the next morning.

Avoiding the Single Supplement

  • You can avoid the single supplement by booking with a tour operator that doesn't charge single supplements.
  • Many tour operators offer roommate matching.
  • You can sometimes save money by booking at the last minute. Tour operators eager to sell out their last few places may be willing to reduce their usual single supplement.
  • You may also want to consider staying in a hostel which charges per bed.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
