Top safety tips for women travellers

Without any doubt, women are on prowl and there is no stopping to it. But when it comes to women travelling around the world, eyebrows get raised of family, friends and well-wishers. Is our world not a place so safe for women? The answer to this is a little controversial, and reason is few handful of bad things happening to women because of fewer sick and foul minded people. We disagree with people that blame these incidents on carelessness. Women you need to be more than that and we have created a comprehensive list that will keep you away from bad experiences.

  • Easy going gals and polite women often do their best not to upset this world, but few people take this as a wrong signal. So you have to watch out, to whom be nice with. If other person might cause harm in wildest imagination, shed off every good thing about you.

  • Even a child is smart enough to feel when vibes are not in their favour. You are a grown up woman and better off with understanding what’s wrong and what’s right. You certainly don’t need someone to tell you that. Always think what best or worst could happen.

  • Women you need to careful where you are booking your hotel, Airbnb, or couch surfing. Internet might lead you in between bunch of rowdy men too. Always make a call to place before booking, tell them you need to be in mid of women, or find a women hostel.

  • The carry bag that every woman carries is their asset. Trust me, don’t be a tomboy sticking to a men shaped wallet. Carry bag is usually inert to pickpockets, as you have a strong hold over it. Use it, but you can always divide what imp. Stuff you want to keep in it.

  • You might be your daddy’s little princess with shimmering pendants and glistening rings, but in distant lands you could be invaded for your unofficial exhibition. All that glitters attract miscreants, so keep them safe in home or in hotel safe.

  • We all love listening music, but its stupidity to do so when you are crossing a street or walking in busy parts of city. You probably could meet an accident that will shatter your harmony. Save it for an afternoon at beach, bedtime, or for cup of coffee.
