If you’re travelling to Europe, there are at least 5 words you should learn to say before you go. If you’re a female planning to travel solo, explore alone during free time on an escorted group tour or river cruise, or you purely want to connect with the locals, you should try to learn how to say some phrases in the languages of the countries you plan to visit. I share 10 phrases in 11 European languages that may come in handy for solo female travellers.

This week in our virtual tour Around the World from A to Z, the British Isles is featured. I have already written about Britain on another page, but this week I will also include differences to look out for when driving in the British Isles as well as safety tips for pedestrians, safety tips for solo female travellers. I also highlight some features in my favourite region of Great Britain.
Below are 14 safety tips for solo female travellers that other women have used when travelling alone, including myself and my sister, who is much younger than me and recently travelled solo in Vietnam and Australia.
There are many aspects of an escorted group tour that make it an ideal option for female travellers—especially women looking for immersive and authentic travel experiences—even women who usually prefer to travel solo or who don’t feel the need to travel with a group for safety reasons.
For women who prefer safety in numbers, an escorted group tour is an ideal option.
One of the many reasons why women don’t travel as much as they should, especially women over 50 like me, is because they have no one to travel with for one reason or another. For them, the idea of travelling alone to some parts of the world is, at best, intimidating and, at worst, freaks them out.
If you’re in the same boat, mostly you worry you won’t feel safe travelling alone, especially to exotic destinations half way across the globe where not only don’t you speak the lingo or know the lay of the land, but you’re also not familiar with the culture, traditions and laws, in particular as they apply to women.
