Simple Tips for Couples Travelling Together | Fundamental Rules To Follow

Traveling as a couple is one of the best things to do. It’s pretty imperative for a couple to travel together to saviour the relationship. But if done wrong, it can just go downhill. You have spent so much time and money over that trip so make sure you make the most out of it.


Tips for Couples

Don’t Forget to Go on Romantic Dates

I know it’s pretty obvious that a vacation in itself feels like a long date. But let’s be honest here, what’s a date without a proper romantic arrangement? Walking the streets of a foreign city, wine tasting, or even going on a tour all seem like cute dates. But don’t forget to take time to go be alone with your partner and do something sweet for one another.

Don’t Expect All Couples Travel to Be Romantic

You’re traveling with your lover. Every moment should be roses and fireworks and epic mountaintop couple selfies, right?

Wrong. You will absolutely have some beautiful times like that while traveling. But not every second of travel is glamour and romance. Delayed flights, getting lost, language frustrations. All of these things can suck the joy right out of the moment (not to mention kill the romance.) So don’t head into your travels expecting pure, unadulterated bliss. But you still can find the joy even between these fuss, right?

Do Make Time For Romance

By the same token, while you can’t expect a constant lovefest, you should be deliberate about making time to enjoy romantic moments together. It doesn’t always sound spontaneous and passionate, but it’s what you gotta do! Whether your idea of romance is an afternoon where you opt to order room service and stay in bed all day, or a special hike you take just the two of you, give some thought to how to make your couples travel sweet and memorable. These intimate moments will stand out and be some of the best-treasured memories of your holiday.

Don’t Argue About Money

Woof. Arguing about money is the worst. And when you’re on a vacation, it can be even more of a buzzkill. There might be an exception to this if you’re traveling long term. Then, the issue of travel money is inevitably going to come up, and you’ll have to work to compromise and budget as a team. But when you’re on a shorter vacation, strive to refrain from financial arguments. How do you do this? Have a serious discussion BEFORE you depart about what you are planning to spend and where you might be able to splurge. It’s always wise to budget expecting those splurges, too. That way you don’t feel stretched thin when you decide a couples massage is just too good to pass up.

Don’t Complain Endlessly

You’re on a’re traveling with your loved one. And the last thing a person would want is an incessant complaining company on a trip. Try and keep your complaints inside. Or better yet, reframe your mindset and for every complaint that you feel you want to make, instead state aloud something you are happy about or grateful for. This will boost your own mood, and perhaps help your partner feel more joyful as well.

Do Divide Travel Responsibilities

On trips of any length, it can be exceedingly helpful to designate travel-related tasks to each person. If the Smiths know that Husband Smith is responsible for carrying the passports, there will be no “but I thought YOU packed them!!!!” at the airport. Wife Smith can rest easy knowing her man has got it under control. And Wife Smith can be in charge of something else, like printing boarding passes or booking the hotel. This helps both partners contribute and makes the process less stressful for everyone.

Don’t Let Your Relationship Stop You From Getting to Know the Locals

Needless to say, it sounds way easier to cuddle up in the corner of a pub sipping on some wine. But the very motive of traveling should be getting to know the new place and the people, their culture and their behaviour. A trip should be a learning experience in itself. So if you’re traveling as a couple, it shouldn’t, in any way, be an obstacle in getting to know the locals and learning about their culture and tradition.
