It takes a certain amount of courage and a lot of planning to pack up your bags and bid goodbye to your friends and families alone to embark on a solo trip to unknown parts of the world. The experience of solo travelling refreshing and a lot of education in itself. If you have decided to visit London on such a trip, then these tips will be beneficial for you to get the best out of the city according to what you have in mind. These tips are simple and common for everyone and anyone from any part of the world.
When we are going to an unknown place alone, we tend to prepare ourselves for the most peculiar circumstances which sometimes involves packing more things than what we actually require. But when you travel alone, you need to lug around your own things most of the time which can be pretty exhausting and will rob you of your sightseeing time.
Therefore, it is best to pack only the essential items you need and try to get some dis-chargeable things at cheap rates for the bare essentials in London.
In case if you have luggage more than you can carry, hire a minicab service in Putney before you arrive at London airport so that you don’t tire yourself by carrying it around in a new city. A1 Cars London provide affordable minicabs for airport pickups and it is best to prefer that option when you are in a new city for the first time.
Most solo travellers prefer to stay in a hostel for a number of reasons – to get an affordable stay, to make new friends and get some local experience. But there are also some who prefer to travel alone, after all, that’s one of the reasons you started on a solo trip, right? Therefore, depending on your requirements, you can decide your place of stay – a hostel or a hotel.
