Equipment and precautions for women to travel

posted in: Blog | 0

It’s important to plan your trip carefully before going on vacation, regardless of how safe the area might be. Taking care of your newfound surroundings makes it more likely that you’ll have a new and exciting experience. Here are some tips to ensure your trip goes off without a hitch from start to finish.

Clothing

It’s important to dress modestly and conservatively. This means covering your legs and arms, wearing a scarf/shawl around your neck, and having no cleavage or anything else that is too revealing. As women, we would do well to remember that we always attract attention, and much of that attention will be looking at our bodies. Depending on where you are going the culture may not allow women to show their body so go for long pants or full-length skirts, and loose clothing. You should also be sure to bring other equipment like a headscarf if you have hair showing. However much we may want to show skin or be fashionable, it’s just not worth the risk.

Wearing a smartwatch

A smartwatch is a wearable computer equipped with features such as a calendar, alarm clock, and text messaging. The latest models even include fitness tracking and GPS functionality. Security experts agree that personal security can be enhanced through the use of wearable technology like smartwatches. The advanced features such as instant notifications of threats to security, mapping, and workout functions allow users to keep track of their surroundings and reduce risk. Additionally, the ability to control and record video and audio footage on a smartwatch means that evidence is automatically recorded with each encounter, which can be used in criminal cases or for safety purposes when reporting crimes.

Shoes

It’s also important to wear comfortable shoes. That means closed-toed shoes, no high heels or sandals. You should bring along an extra pair of shoes to change into (like flip flops) while you’re on the plane or bus.

Toiletries

Pack items like deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, soap, razor, and toothbrush/toothpaste. This is important for personal hygiene and comfort. You can get most of these in travel sizes or sample sizes.

Health concerns

Bring all your medicines in their original containers and keep them in your carry-on luggage. If you take prescription medications, be sure to pack a few days’ extra dosages just in case of flight delays or other problems that might require you to stay longer than expected.

Prepare for dangerous areas

Although travelers are often told to avoid certain areas of the city or country they’re visiting, it can be difficult for women who want to explore their new surroundings on foot. Women can do this by concealing their money in different places on their bodies, instead of keeping all of it together in a purse or wallet. Avoid dangerous situations, such as accepting rides from strangers. It’s also best to travel with someone else if possible.

Paper spray or whistle

A pepper spray can be helpful if you’re going somewhere dangerous or you just need a little protection from animals that might bite you. A whistle is good for making noise if you’re in danger or lost.

Avoid sexual relationships

Many women experience that their holiday is spoiled by a sexual relationship with a local man. Some of them even wake up without their money and belongings – or worse—a sexually transmitted infection (STI) or a pregnancy! It’s simply not worth the risk.

Additional precautions

  • When walking through the streets of an unfamiliar city or country, stay in well-lit areas and use sidewalks if they are available. If you are in an area where there are no sidewalks, walk facing traffic so that if someone approaches you, you can quickly step up on the road.
  • Keep your cell phone charged at all times, so you do not miss any messages of possible danger. Have more than one way to communicate with people back home; try email or social media.
  • Let someone back home know your travel plan and when to expect you. If you change plans and need to stay longer than scheduled, let them know immediately.
