5 Helpful hacks for female flyers
When it comes to travel, sisters have been doing it for themselves since the Queen of Sheba visited King Solomon.
And in 2020, convenient air travel means seeing the most beautiful parts of the world and catching up with friends, family and colleagues no longer costs a regal ransom.
If you’re a fiercely independent female adventurer, there’s absolutely no reason you can’t go anywhere your male compatriots can. But when you’re journeying alone, it makes sense to plan properly and take every precaution necessary to stay safe and have a successful trip.
Five helpful hacks for female flyers
1. Observe official advice
Social and political climates in some countries can change rapidly and unexpectedly – and unless you spend a significant portion of your time glued to global current affairs, you might not be aware that your destination of choice has become unsafe.
So plan properly by reading government foreign travel advice – that way, you’ll always have the most up-to-date information and guidance at hand in case you need to adapt your itinerary.
2. Decide on a destination that women adore
There’s something to be said for being a female travel trailblazer and holidaying somewhere off the beaten track.
But if you’re going solo for the first time, it might be more advisable to choose a destination that other females already appreciate. For instance, stats from Condor Ferries show that in terms of culture, safety, scenery and women’s rights, Japan is the top choice, followed by France, Spain and the US.
3. Pick a female-friendly hotel
If you want an accommodation experience carefully engineered for females, don’t look past the women-friendly rooms from Condor Hotels.
In each hotel with this offering, rooms are located on the same floor and have door viewers, sturdy safety locks and safe parking spaces, while other amenities include cosmetic mirrors, power hairdryers and female-oriented gyms.
4. Become a luggage legend
When you’re taking a short trip or are an amazingly efficient packer, you can get away with taking one piece of carry-on luggage on your adventures and avoid queuing to pick up hold bags at the other end.
But choosing the right suitcase is crucial. There are plenty to choose from, but a 4-wheel carry-on is a good choice. Look for something tough but light at the same time.
5. Park with peace of mind
It’s often more chilled to cruise to departures in your own car than struggling with public transport.
But don’t forget to book safe and secure parking beforehand to save time, cash and stress – SkyParkSecure has discount parking for Birmingham and many other British hubs.
