Solo travelling is an exciting experience that gives you the luxury to do what you really want to do, without depending on others. It's thrilling, scary, and challenging at the same time. You learn many things about the place as well as learning things about yourself. But no matter how adventurous or entertaining solo travel may sound, the truth is that many of us still find it as a daunting task. Many questions come to you including about safety, practicalities, how interesting it will be and more. Use these practical tips and ideas to get started:
Travelling to Europe or other destinations from Oman is complicated enough without trying to figure out last minute details like car rentals after you land at your destination.
Many people think nonstop and direct flights are interchangeable terms, but there are differences between the two. This confusion is common, as "direct" is one of the most misused terms in modern travel. Knowing its true definition, and those of related terms like "non-stop" and "connecting," will be an important step to ensure avoiding booking flights that may be twice as long, and about twice as involved.
Whether you are a business traveller or a lone explorer, getting travel insurance is a must if you want peace of mind while travelling alone. Even if you’ve got your passport, your visa and all the cool accompaniments for your trip, your travel planning is not complete without insurance. Travel insurance, specially on solo trips, is an important item and should be on top of your checklist.
One of the largest costs of any trip tends to be the airfare, that’s why finding that hidden cheap flight deal can be just as important as finding the right destination, the right time to visit, or the right place to stay. After all, if your flight is too expensive, you probably won’t plan that holiday.
