Women Traveling Alone: France
In this soon-to-be post-COVID world that we live in you may now have the urge to travel and to see places you've been yearning to see for years or even decades. And if COVID ruined your relationship status during the past year of being quarantined, chances are likely you are single right now and "not really looking" either.
Thus traveling alone and taking a trip by yourself isn't such a big deal, and furthermore France is one of the safest countries in the world for women to travel alone. (As opposed to say... New Zealand, the country which as of 2018 has the highest kidnapping rate in the world! Wow! Other countries to avoid are Pakistan, Luxembourg, Germany, and Ecuador.)
There are benefits to traveling alone too.
Another trick to traveling alone is your plane tickets. If you are bringing children with you suddenly the trip you've been dreaming of suddenly got a lot more expensive just for the plane tickets, to say nothing of food and accomodations. However on the plus side, plane tickets to France right now are pretty reasonably priced.
So if you drive (car rental) or take a bus to Montreal you can probably save about $200 on airfare. If you were traveling with someone they might not be so willing to drive the extra mile just to save $200.
France is one of the most well-touristed destinations on the planet and a safe and easy country for travel. Women traveling solo will generally feel safe nearly anyplace they go. As long as you're an independent person at home, you won't have any trouble getting around France by train, bus or rental car.
Safety Tips for Women Traveling Alone in France
If you get assaulted in France, call France's national rape crisis hotline (0 800 059 595) toll-free from any telephone. It's run by Paris women's organisation, Viols Femmes Informations (9 villa d'Este, 13e, Paris; Porte d'Ivry).
Once you are in Paris there are lots of things to see...
And things to do... Rent a bicycle and explore the river banks. Hungry or thirsty? Stop at a cafe and drink! Explore! Go shopping!
When it comes to purchasing things here are several important tips:
Why? Because the rates airlines charge for extra baggage are ridiculous! Traveling light is your best friend.
Remember to read up and research where you are going. I recommend watching all of Rick Steve's Europe videos on the subject of Paris and France in general. I also recommend the Lonely Planet series of travel guides.
