Safe and Solo Travelling in Greece

Safe and Solo Travelling in Greece

Greece has a welcoming culture and is a perfect destination for solo travel. Even so, venturing out alone comes with a natural desire for safety.

Here are some tips to ensure a smooth and secure solo adventure in Greece:

Planning is Power

Research your destinations. While Greece is generally safe, be aware of areas with higher petty theft rates. Familiarise yourself with public transportation options and ferry schedules for island hopping. Booking accommodation in advance, especially during peak season, gives peace of mind.

Pack light for easy island hopping and consider a money belt for valuables. Bring a photocopy of your passport and keep the original in a safe place. Download offline maps and translation apps for navigating unfamiliar areas.

Cautious and Connected

When exploring, especially at night, stick to well-lit areas and main roads. Inform your accommodation or a friend about your day’s itinerary. Be mindful of your belongings in crowded areas.

Never forget that travelling solo does not simultaneously mean being lonely. Hostels and guesthouses are great for meeting fellow travellers. Consider joining group tours or activities – a fantastic way to explore and make new friends. Strike up conversations with locals – Greeks are known for their hospitality!

Trust Your Gut

If a situation feels uncomfortable, politely remove yourself. Solo travel allows you to set your own pace, so don’t feel pressured to participate in anything that makes you uneasy. Take your time, take it slow, and make it your own.

Greece is a welcoming destination. By following these tips and using common sense, you can have a safe and unforgettable solo adventure in this beautiful country.
