When it comes to packing for a solo trip, it is actually not much different than packing for a trip with a group of friends. For example, if you and your friends always use packing cubes when traveling together, feel free to use them during your solo trip as well. Can’t travel without your favorite book, no matter who you are with? Well, we are more than happy to let you know that you can take it on your solo trip as well! However, there are some certain concerns that become much more pressing when you are traveling alone. This is especially true when you are worried about your personal safety. That being said, if you don’t have anyone to watch your back during the trip, you will definitely want to take a few extra precautions – just in case something goes wrong, you know? With this in mind, here are some things that you need to pack when traveling alone!
It is no secret that things like deadbolts and other security features vary heavily from hotel to hotel. With that said, you should at least consider bringing your own door stopper with you. A good door stopper has the ability to add an extra layer of protection to your hotel room’s door, and that is always a good thing. This is especially true if you are going to be staying at a hotel where doors open to the outside, or at some sort of a budget property that has weird locks.
Inexpensive Wedding Band
Wearing an inexpensive wedding band can actually help deter unwanted attention. And don’t worry, you don’t have to wait for your wedding to start wearing one of these things. Even a simple band will attract less attention, and if it somehow ends up getting lost or stolen, it won’t be a big loss for you. You can get a plain stainless steel band for less than $10, and titanium bands are not too expensive either.
First Aid Kit
There is absolutely no doubt that a first aid kit is one of the most important items that you need to pack for your solo trips. Every single traveler have a first aid kit in their travel backpack at all times. You never know what might happen to you, right? You can either create your own first aid kit, or you can get one from your local store.
