The following are the most common solo travel fears and how to overcome them.

I Do Not Think I’m Outgoing

Solo travels are not only for extroverts or super active personalities. If you are the timid or shy kind of a person, taking things easy can still help you fit in well with strangers when visiting new places. However, it is advisable to start by touring places you are familiar like attractions in your country to build confidence.  

I’m Worried about Travel Costs

Traveling solo can be one of the best ways to see the world for less since you do not have to compromise on where you stay, sleep, visit or things to do. Consider cost cutting alternatives like booking accommodation in dorms, early flight bookings and others.

How Can I Be Sure of My Safety?

This is a concern for every traveler including those who travel with big groups. While there is always no guarantee of safety even during group trips, solo travels require that you take extra care of yourself. The first step is choosing destinations that you are comfortable visiting.

Whenever you start to feel homesick, try something that will make you feel comfortable at the new environment like engaging the locals.
