Don’t get left out in the cold when it comes to ski cover | Global Solo Travel Trends | Scoop.it

Even for hale and hearty millennials, this is an important issue. On travel two months ago, I visited a friend in a foreign hospital. I was surprised to learn not only did they not take insurance, they did not take credit cards and yes cash payment was required daily! So know before you go!

Lost hiker: 'When you find my body...'

Lost hiker: 'When you find my body...' | Global Solo Travel Trends | Scoop.it
Geraldine Largay knew she was so very lost that the chances of her making it out of the thick Maine woods were gone.
Elizabeth Avery's insight:
This post really demonstrates the danger of getting lost even with a hiking buddy. Worse yet, hiking alone, a simple sprained ankle can be dangerous if it is too difficult to make it back to safety. It is important not to assume you will get a signal on your phone or your battery won't decide to die on you.  See our post at SoloTrekker4U.com on 5 Tips for Solo Travelers for Hiking Safely.

Elizabeth Avery's insight:
With such an intriguing title, it is hard to pass this by without taking a look. I was pleased to see that they have some of my favorite tips. (Remember to have your carry-on for everything you need at hand: even snacks! Don't forget to have some chocolate handy) A new tip: Use your phone and photograph the back not just the front of your credit cards.  I had photocopied the fronts and sometimes laboriously written out the information on the back in years gone by. Save yourself some work by snapping the photos with you phone before you set out.

Solo travel savings tips for retirees

Solo travel savings tips for retirees | Global Solo Travel Trends | Scoop.it
Dear Savvy Senior,
Elizabeth Avery's insight:
At any tme of life, but especially for those of us Baby Boomers, it is important to have good health insurance for travel and access to emergency funds. Some foreign hospitals only take cash even requiring daily payment and do not wait for insurance. Even hardy travelers can have an accident especially when jetlag and fatigue are thrown in to the mix.  So have a plan in case you need it.

If you are new to solo travel and concerned about being lonely, sign up for a class at your destination.

Detained Americans Fast Facts

Detained Americans Fast Facts | Global Solo Travel Trends | Scoop.it
Read CNN's Fast Facts about recent cases of foreign governments detaining U.S. citizens.
Elizabeth Avery's insight:
This is one area that is seriously overlooked.  Whenever I plan a trip abroad, I check both State Department and Internet resources on local regulations. One that is very important and is an issue for most travelers: prescription and over the counter drugs. Even if legal at home, they may not be abroad. In addition, having a personal prescription may not be enough.  Lastly, if you travel with a large supply of drugs, it may be deemed with the intent to distribute. In the past, some destinations have had mandatory 4 year jail sentences for violations for more than 200 substances. So don't give u and plan on a "staycation". The important thing is to "know before you go" and follow the required procedures if you must carry prescriptions or over-the-counter drugs on travel.
