7 Safety Tips For Solo Woman Travelling In India

Most solo women travellers don’t think of India as a safe destination.  However, if you stay alert and follow some basic tips you can actually have a very positive solo travel experience in India. India is chaotic, but has a lot to diverse and exhilarating experiences to offer solo woman travellers. We hope you follow our suggestions and explore India to the fullest!

5. Safety

Safety

Safety is a huge concern for solo women travellers in India. “Eve-teasing” is common in India. We recommend carrying messenger bags or your backpacks in front to avoid any accidental brushing. Also carry a safety whistle or safety alarm. They’re both small and easy to carry and they make a loud noise when you press it during an emergency. If you’re being harassed, we recommend alerting people around you and dialing 100 to call the police squad that is dedicated to protecting women. Most public transport has different designated areas for women, we recommend always using those. In restaurants, always sit in the Family Sections.

6. Carry a messenger bag or money belt for all important documents & wallet

Carry a messenger bag or money belt for all important documents & wallet

Make copies of all your important documents – your passport, visa, travel insurance, credit cards, etc. and keep the originals with you in a cross body messenger bag or a money belt. In the unfavorable situation that your travel documents have been stolen, you will still have the copies. Even though you are using a messenger bag or a money belt, you should be alert at all times during your travels in India.

7. Carry An Emergency Contact Information Card

Carry An Emergency Contact Information Card

You should keep an emergency card with you at all times while traveling alone. That way, if there is an emergency, a person trying to help can find the emergency contact card. The emergency card should include complete contact details of someone at home or in India and any relevant information such as allergies or your blood group. Additionally, keep your family or friends aware of all your travel plans and keep in touch with them via a local sim card, which doesn’t cost much!
