Do you have what it takes For A Solo Travel Tips

There are many Pros and Cons when it comes to traveling especially when you’re all by yourself. Don’t ever let the thought of you traveling alone stop you from conquering the world and experience a once in a lifetime adventure.

Here are some tips for you:
• Create a detailed itinerary before you go.


In case there is a need to contact you, print out a detailed itinerary and give them to your friends and family in order to somehow ease their worry if your travelling to Costa Rica.

 

 

 
• Know that traveling “Solo” doesn’t mean you’re traveling “Alone”.

 

 

 

Many people would wonder if traveling solo would just make you lonely but the truth is, not at all. In these cases, you would actually meet more people especially people who is also traveling alone.

 

 

 
• Choosing a destination where people speak English.

Knowing that it’s your first time traveling solo, it’s best to start with places where you can communicate with locals if you are having problems rather than throwing yourself into situations where language barrier is a big hindrance for you. Stick with Western countries to limit your culture shock.

 

 
• Do some researching about your destination before you arrive.


It’s best to check out a map and familiarize yourself with the place and learn about any safety issue. Not all tourist area of a city is the safest. Ask your hotel or hostel to give you a highlighted map for you to know the safest place to explore alone.

 

 
• Realize the perks of traveling solo.

Think of all the possibilities when traveling on your own. You won’t have to answer to anyone and get to decide what to do and where to go. It may also be a chance for you to reflect and just get lost in thought while enjoying the view of the place. You get to be in control.

 

 
• Have travel goals.

Traveling without a companion may be a bit of overwhelming so you need to get your goals straight. Making a list on what to do and what you’ve accomplished is the best way to start. You should expect the unexpected and try surfing  at Suck Rock for example.

 

 

 

• Utilize technology to help make traveling easier.


There are travel apps and tools that make traveling easier to most solo adventurers. There are group forums for a particular place where you can attend meet-ups and great events when you’re in the city and enjoy the scenery from a local’s point of view like Montezuma.

 

 

• Keep yourself open to new adventures without putting yourself in danger.


It’s your first solo trip and suddenly fear start to creeps in. DON’T! Let go of your fear and make the most out of your Santa Teresa  vacation. But you also have to be mindful with the decisions you are taking and always trust your gut!

 

 

 

• Make time for yourself.

Yes, it may be a good way to take the time off from your usual schedule but there’s still a chance for you to feel depressed and homesick and those entire traveling make you tired. It doesn’t mean you have to pack your bags and head home. All you need is a little bit of pampering, call someone from home and just relax for a little while and do different  activities in Malpais like Yoga.

 

 

• Learn how to stay safe.


Don’t let the thought of you traveling alone scare you. As what is stated above, find out the places where you need to be more careful than usual. And don’t ever bring valuables if it’s unavoidable check out garments where you can stash your valuables safely. Hop into a cab immediately once you feel uncomfortable, especially at night.

 

• Know that traveling solo isn’t for everyone.


If you’d much prefer having company while traveling then its best not to try going alone. Though it’s recommended to try it at least once in the end it may not be the best option for you. You can always opt for a group tour in Malpais Costa Rica if you can’t find someone to accompany you.

Travel Scandal Involving Expedia,Booking.com and Inter Continental Hotels Chain

Top Online Travel sites and a hotel chain are involve in fixing hotel room prices at unsuspecting online customers.

A investigation that took almost two years was conducted by Britain’s Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has determine that Inter Continental Hotels Group(IHG), the owner of the Holiday Inn chain conspired with Booking.com and Expedia to stop the increase in discounts being given to online customers trying to book for a hotel in their site.  OFT thinks that this problem is also happening to other  major online booking travel sites and further investigation will be conducted.

British-based IHG and US-owned Booking.com protest this accusations and they will show proof that they are not doing anything illegal. Thus problem arise when a small online travel agent was stopped in providing promos for hotel rooms.

OFT said ”

Booking.com and Expedia had entered into separate agreements with IHG which appeared to breach the 1998 Competition Act. Expedia allegedly violated rules from 2007 to 2010, the OFT said, adding that the arrangement between Booking.com and IHG was continuing”.

The regulator continued ” The alleged infringements could limit price competition between online travel agents and make it harder for new online travel agents to offer cut-price deals.”

OFT chief executive Clive Maxwell said: “We want people to benefit fully from being able to shop around online and get a better deal from discounters.”

Mark Datta, managing director of a mobile-only hotel booking service, Blink Booking, was not surprised by the findings. He said: “We have long believed that the big online travel agents have been guilty of denying consumers the best prices — and that hotels’ hands are tied by price parity agreements.

“The online travel market may appear to offer plenty of choice and competition, but the reality is that there are lots of different shop windows selling the same rooms at the same prices — with those prices agreed through deals between the big groups and the big online travel agents.”

IHG and Booking.com said they would contest the OFT’s “provisional findings”. IHG said its arrangements with online booking agents were “compliant with competition laws”.

Expedia said: “Expedia remains committed to ensuring it provides consumers with the widest possible choice of travel options at competitive prices.”
