MORE ABOUT SOLO/INDEPENDENT TRAVELERS
The term FIT does not restrict to a young solo individual, it could be a couple, a group of friends or a retired individual exploring the world in his/her own way. Selecting plus planing their own journey and exploring places that interests them.
The reason its termed FIT is because of the way they travel and plan their itinerary.
They don’t depend or spend on an agency or a fixed scheduled itinerary, they prefer less crowded spots and won’t rush while they’re exploring.
Not that FIT’s don’t plan or they spend too much time on research. As it’s more DIY you’re bound to spend some time on research. However a little research doesn’t take long and it’s enough for one to be well prepared & learn how to go about in a new town altogether. This way they also get the ‘top things to do’ in a particular destination for a much cheaper price comparatively.
How Do FIT’s Travel?
Being independent while you’re on a journey has its own perks and much fewer flaws, thanks to online OTA’s making flight tickets, accommodations accessible at a click!
Independent travelers decide for themselves instead of letting an agency plan where they would like to visit and what they would like to do in that destination. This gives them the liberty of choosing the time they prefer to explore and also discovering places that are not filled with tourists.

#3. Travel Like a Local
It’s cheaper and better than cabs, look for the bus, train or metro routes that’ll be easily accessible on google maps once you set your location and destination.
On Klook you can instantly book your pass or tickets for the following:
JR Pass – Japan Railway Pass
Eurorail – Eurorail Tickets to various locations.
MTR Pass – MTR Airport Express
You can also book your wifi/sim prior to your travel dates & collect it at the airport to commute and communicate without hassles. Have an organized trip booking a Portable Wifi or a Local Sim for that destination. Don’t await a free wifi service anymore, just get your Klook Wifi or Sim & surf the internet or go live on your Instagram handle whenever you want.
We recommend buying USD and then converting them to the destination’s currency before hand as INR currency exchange rates fluctuate quite often.
You can buy your currency online too from a well reputed dealer, most of them also provide free delivery services.
On Klook you have an option of above 30 currencies to choose from for payment, you pay what you see & there’s no hidden cost !
#6. Skip Tourist Spots
It’s alright if you want to skip the prime “places to visit”, the destination will have so much more to explore. Take sometime to walk through the streets near your accommodation and you’ll sure love the time you’ve spent exploring on your own feet.
Step out during the day and maybe you’ll stumble upon a location that’ll be much better than the touristy chaotic places.
