If you want to book a romantic trip away with your partner, then you’ll want to make sure that everything goes to plan. You’ll also want to make sure that you cater to their likes and dislikes, too. If you’re feeling a little unsure about where to go, or if you want some guidance that will help you to make the trip extra special, then this is the guide for you.
Travel during the Offseason
The best way for you to kill the romantic mood would be for you to experience poor service, huge crowds and packed transportation. If you want to stop this from being the case, then you need to make sure that you travel during the offseason. If you do, then you will soon find that the trip is much cheaper, the hotel has your choice of rooms, abundant staff to attend to you, and that you can even book a more luxurious hotel.
Save up Enough Money Before you Go
Money can be a stressful topic to talk about. With this in mind, you have to make sure that you set your budget for your getaway. Nothing can cool romance faster than being short on funds during a trip. If you can, it’s a good idea to save up in advance, so you can go for a nice meal out without having to worry about the price. You can also order food in the hotel room, without having to check your wallet. By planning ahead, you can be sure to stop any money woes when you get there.
Use Room Service to your Advantage
Sometimes it’s nice to stay in bed and just relax. Although you do want to make sure that you have enough to do when you go away, sometimes it’s nice to do nothing at all. Stay in bed and make sure that you utilize room service. It’s there for a reason, after all. If you want to make their morning really special, why not try and send flowers to the room so that you can make them feel extra special?
Focus on Your Partner and What they Like
It’s very easy for you to focus on what people see as being romantic. If booking a pottery class or taking dance lessons just doesn’t appeal to you, and you’d much rather go to the movies, then do that. Romance is exactly how you define it. If you and your partner love snowboarding, book an excursion and have fun. Just because it’s not a candle-lit dinner, doesn’t mean it’s not romantic. After all, you know your partner more than anyone, so focus on this, and you’ll soon find that your next getaway is the most romantic one yet.
Pamper Yourself and Your Partner
Take advantage of not having a schedule and have a spa day. Pampering each other can be the most romantic thing you do during your getaway. Getting a couple’s massage, facial treatments, or mani pedis can give you two time to relax and connect when you were way too stressed out during your regular routine to do it before. Most hotel concierge desks can make these arrangements for you in advance. Your partner will appreciate being pampered and destressed and so will you.
Of course, if you focus on what really matters about planning a romantic getaway, and if you take the time to think about your partner and what they like, then you can be sure to book the most romantic vacation ever. If you’re stuck for destinations then another country can be very romantic, so explore France, Morroco, Bahamas, Italy or even Spain. There are also plenty of packages you can book online if you want to add some structure to your vacation and save money at the same time, keep an open mind and search popular travel aggregators for deals.
