If you travel for work and are always staying in hotels by yourself (like me), or if you’re someone who just enjoys taking vacations alone, chances are you have felt unsafe at some point while traveling solo. Walking around an unfamiliar city can be intimidating if you’re by yourself. You can’t bring pepper spray, knives, or other self-defense weapons on a plane, but here are 5 products I have found that can make you feel much safer while traveling by yourself.

1. Personal Safety Alarm
When you pull the pin out of this alarm, it makes an ear piercing sound that can be heard 600 feet away for up to 50 minutes! Plus it’s easily portable (it’s a keychain) and has an LED light.
This is a portable door lock that installs in seconds and gives you additional security in your hotel room or AirBNB. It will keep you extra safe by literally adding another lock to your door!
3. Door Stop
This is one thing I always travel with after I had someone open my (locked) hotel room door in the middle of the night. It turned out to be housekeeping and they went to the wrong room – but it still scared me! This is just extra security for your room and is super easy to pack.
4. Door Stop Alarm
If you want to take your hotel room safety to the next level, try this door stop alarm! If someone opens the door and hits this door stop, an alarm will go off to wake you up and scare them away.
5. Portable Charger
If you are ever walking around an unfamiliar city by yourself you should ALWAYS have a portable charger! There is nothing worse than being stranded somewhere you don’t know without a way to get in contact with anyone and unable to use your GPS.
