Traveling solo is something that concerns a lot of people. They are anxious about boarding a plane by themselves, let alone spending a full week or two in their own company. They worry that they will get lost… forever. They fear that the trip will be boring. Sound familiar? If you really want to travel on your own, but you are worried about doing so, here are some great tips that will make traveling solo a breeze.

  • Start saying YES – There is only one place to begin, and this is by saying yes in all walks of your life. The sooner you do this, the better. So, say yes to the hike your friend has been pestering you to take, or the coffee with the girl you have been talking to. Getting out of your comfort zone as much as possible will prepare you for travelling on your own.

  • Book through a specialist company – This is one of the best things you can do. Nowadays, there are travel companies specialising in all kind of areas and niches, including holidays for people that want to travel on their own. By booking through a company like Just You, you can be sure that the holiday is entirely catered to someone going away on their own. This means you will benefit from activities that are for one person, meaning no awkward moments. Plus, you will feel comfortable every step of the way, as you know your holiday has been catered to you and your needs only.

  • Know your limits when it comes to alcohol – If you’re the person who always seems to get in the biggest mess on a night out, you need to start practising some self-control. Getting drunk while you are on your own is never the best idea, so you need to start knowing your limits when it comes to alcohol.

  • Never underestimate the power of ‘hello’ – You will be shocked by how a simple ‘hello’ can transform your entire holiday. You could meet someone who enlightens you to something special about the place you are visiting. You could meet someone who becomes an integral part of your life for the rest of it. You never know what a simple hello could lead to.

  • Prepare a ten-second intro – When you meet new people, you will start with the usual stuff. Where are you from? How long are you visiting for? You know, the usual small talk. But, when these questions are over, it doesn’t mean the conversation needs to be over. You can open the floor for deeper conversation by having a small ten-second intro to fall back on. Of course, this doesn’t mean a rehearsed speech – keep it natural.

If you follow the tips that have been mentioned above, you can ensure that you feel confident, prepared and excited about taking a holiday on your own.
