Hodophobia, the fear of traveling….

For many people there is a real fear of taking those first steps and these fears hold them back from leaving the country and, perhaps even their own state.  They  just can’t bring themselves to make the arrangements – it’s all too daunting. Packing, getting themselves to the airport, the TSA, arriving in a foreign airport…

For those with the fear of traveling, whether it’s for business or pleasure, consider the following:

Fear of Flying
It’s best to get professional help. Group therapy or counseling can help you overcome your anxiety around the fear of flying. You’ll need to get to the root cause in order to overcome it and make your travels bearable.

Turn off the News
Much of our fear about a destination comes from what we read in the news and hear from friends. Those negative stories about a place: the crime rate, a natural disaster, a public transportation accident, etc. In reality, what’s reported in the news rarely affects the traveler’s experience.

When the Pain of Not Going Outweighs the Fear of Travel
Whether it’s in business, your personal life or in travel, we are rarely moved to make a change until the pain and fear (or laziness) of not doing it overcomes the pain and fear (or laziness) of doing it.

Much of life is like this. We don’t make a move until we really have to.

Take Baby Steps
Start small. Take a trip to see a friend in another city or visit a family member who’s living abroad. The idea is to get comfortable with the process until you feel confident enough to build up to the trip.

Puerto Vallarta is absolutely safe and friendly, contact us, we will be happy to help you plan your trip and take the anxiety away.
