1. A digital wallet or a physical folder that will store all your essential documents
Keep your friends close, but your documents closer! If you keep your credentials, such as passport, Aadhaar card, and boarding passes, within easy reach in your bag, then you will be able to locate them easily when needed. Hence, it's essential to have a dependable digital wallet or a compact physical folder to store all your documents. This folder/digital wallet should always be with you when leaving your hotel/stay.
2. Important gadgets to always stay connected
3. Anti-theft bag to prevent pick-pocketing
Your bag is going to be your constant companion during your travels. Make sure it doesn't fall prey to pick-pocketing. Leaving your bag even for a minute is quite dangerous. An anti-theft bag with anti-theft zippers would safeguard all your essentials within your bag. These bags also come with an in-built USB charger, so you can juice up your charger whenever needed. Apart from carrying your regular fanny packs and sling bags, buying an anti-theft backpack would prove to be a good investment as you would be able to use it for all your future journeys.
4. A Forex card for all your foreign transactions
To avoid financial inconvenience at foreign shores, get a forex card from your bank and load it with the currency of the country you would be visiting before boarding your flight. This would not only save you from making trips to various currency exchange booths but will also ensure that you don't face the risk of carrying wads of notes while you travel.
5. Trusting travel insurance for untoward incidences
Let's keep in mind that a solo traveller has to prepare for untoward situations where things can go wrong. Incidents like loss of baggage/passports, flight delays, and injuries can jeopardise the well-planned travel schedule. Therefore, reliable travel insurance is mandatory for safe travel to minimise the effects of such unpleasantries. Bajaj Allianz General Insurance’s Travel Prime Individual Plan is designed for solo travellers who embrace a bit of risk in their travel adventures. *
* Claims are subject to terms and conditions set forth under travel insurance policy.
Here are some benefits of Bajaj Travel Prime Individual Plan and its coverage-
Medical expenses and medical evacuation: This covers medical treatment costs for illness and injury suffered during overseas trips, as specified in the policy terms and conditions. *
Emergency dental pain relief: Dental pain can not only spoil your trip, but a visit to the dentist overseas can also be quite heavy on your pocket. With Bajaj Travel Prime Individual Plan, you get a sum of USD 500 as emergency dental pain relief, as stated in the policy schedule. *
Loss of checked baggage: Solo travellers occasionally find themselves in unpleasant situations where their checked-in baggage goes missing during transit. Such an event can obstruct your travel itinerary and leave you feeling distressed. However, with the Bajaj Travel Prime Individual Plan, you can travel worry-free, as the insurance comprehensively covers the complete and permanent loss or destruction of your checked-in baggage, as listed in the policy terms and conditions.*
Loss of passport: Misplacing or losing your passport in a foreign country can be very troublesome. During such a scenario, you would have to shell out extra money for obtaining a duplicate passport. This expense is covered by the Bajaj Travel Prime Individual Plan, to the extent of the policy limitations.*
Hijack cover: In case of highjacking leading to the insured’s kidnapping while travelling on aircraft, the insurance company will provide coverage up to the maximum sum specified in the policy terms and conditions.*
Delay of checked baggage: In case your luggage takes more than 12 hours to arrive, and you need new things such as toiletries, medication, clothing, etc. on an emergency basis, this policy would cover the expenses for the same, as specified in the policy terms and conditions.*
*Claims are subject to terms and conditions set forth under travel insurance policy.
Solo travel may come with its own challenges; however, it's essential to have a Plan B in case things don't go as planned. Bajaj Travel Prime Individual Plan offers numerous advantages and serves as your reliable Plan B, ensuring your journey goes smoothly as you check off your bucket list to-dos with happy memories and moments.*
*Standard T&C apply
