3

Dress conservatively

Always dress conservatively on your solo travels in India. Carry a multipurpose scarf, which can be uses as an emergency blanket. A multipurpose scarf is great for solo women travellers, as you’ll be able to use it to keep warm, cover yourself or dress up an outfit. We don’t mean you need to be covered from head to toe, wear loose cotton clothing such as pants and a top or a kurta and tights.

Don’t go out alone after dark

In most towns and cities in India, it’s advisable to not go out alone in the dark. Make all you travel plans during the day so you reach your destination before sunset. If you do plan to go out alone in the night, make sure you have reliable company.

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.

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!
