there are some basic questions you should ask yourself.
A romantic weekend getaway or vacation.
You will need to coordinated your schedules in order to make certain
that you are both available for the specific dates and time of travel.
Also remember to ask your partner about their travel preferences.
Some people prefer to have a day or two to unwind following any
vacation before returning to work. So talk to your partner about
what they prefer.
Affordable and cheap romantic getaways.
Let's face it, vacations, of any kind, are a splurge. You need to
decide just how much you can afford to spend for your romantic
getaway. Nothing can put a damper on a romantic getaway like worrying about money or how much you're spending. If money is a real concern, avoid planning getaways where it's easy to overspend, like in retail-rich locations. Rather than a hotel with all it's temptations for extras, rent a cottage, cabin, or condo. The money saving bonus here is the chance to cut back on your meal spending by being able to grocery shop and cook in a kitchen. Things really tight? Go camping! Don't have a tent or supplies? You probably know someone who does and you can always ask to borrow them. Another good way to make sure that your romantic getaway stays
affordable is to purchase tickets for your planned activities in
advance. Advance ticket purchases for airfare, activities, shows,
and concerts are often less expensive than when purchased last
minute. However, often romantic travelers can find last
minute deals to specific places. The catch being that you don't
often have a wide range of choices for your destination. The more
you make specific plans for your time while traveling the less likely
you are to go over budget.
Special romantic destinations.
If there is a city or attraction that the two have you have always
wanted to see consider planning your romantic getaway around it.
Even if the activity doesn't seem particularly romantic, there are
always ways to add romance to it! So even if your companion has
always wanted to white water raft down a raging river, you can add
some romance to the journey by arranging for a riverside picnic
complete with tasty food and a little red wine. If you both cannot
agree on an activity, try and find a destination that offers both
of you that activities you desire while making sure that you can
also have plenty of time spent together. The key in making any getaway
a romantic one is togetherness. Even though you may find yourself
participating in activities that aren't your cup of tea, think about
how happy your companion is while they get the chance to explore
something new. Be patient and give of yourself. By making the getaway
romantic for them, you will make it romantic for yourself.
What modes of transportation suit you and your companion
Do you or your partner get sea sick? If so, a
cruise may not be such a great idea. There is nothing romantic about
nausea! Are you or your partner afraid to fly? Perhaps there is
a romantic alternative to air travel that would get you where you
would like to go? Do long car rides make you car sick? Knowing the
answers to these questions can avoid disastrous consequences during
your romantic getaway. Remember, no matter what mode of transportation
you choose there are always ways to make it romantic and special.
What time of year are you planning to travel?
The amount of fun and relaxation you can experience on your romantic
getaway can be directly affected by adverse weather conditions.
Fall and Spring are usually good times to travel but they can also
be particularly rainy seasons with somewhat unpredictable weather.
Depending on where you want to go, the particular season you travel
in can greatly effect the costs of accommodations and transportation.
To save money, always look into destinations in their off seasons,
however remember to keep weather in mind!
