Traveling solo comes with a long list of benefits, but it can be quite scary—especially in the age of uncertainty we live in now. Many passionate solo travelers can’t shake off their wanderlust despite the global pandemic, and here’s a couple of things you should keep in mind if you happen to be one of them.

Local Trips

Traveling internationally can be very risky since you could end up in quarantine during or after your trip, especially if you’re going to a country with a high number of coronavirus cases. Instead of putting yourself and others at risk, plan a fun trip in your own country or state.

Means of Transportation

Public transportation has been a breeding ground for germs long before 2020, and it’s best avoided. Traveling by car is your best option right now, but if you’re not a driver or can’t afford it, wearing a mask while traveling on a bus or train is a must.

Private Accommodation

Traveling alone usually means meeting a bunch of new people by staying at backpackers hostels, but that’s not really an option right now. Renting private accommodation is the best way to ensure you’re staying safe and avoiding high-risk contacts.
