If you're planning a romantic getaway with your partner, there are a few things you can do to make sure it's extra special. Whether you're looking for a luxurious experience, beautiful destinations, or top-notch service, here are some tips to help you and your travel advisor book the perfect trip.
First, think about what type of experience you want. Do you want to stay in a fancy hotel with all the amenities, or would you prefer a more secluded location where you can relax and unwind? Once you've decided on the basics of your ideal experience, it's time to reach out to your travel advisor.
"When planning a romantic getaway, the most important thing is to make sure that you and your partner are both comfortable," said Cheryl Jones of Lez Go Travel, LLC. "Consider the destination, budget, and activities that will make both of you happy."
If you're looking for a luxurious experience, consider booking a stay at a resort or hotel that offers high-end amenities like spa treatments, gourmet dining, and private pools. Many of these properties also offer special packages for couples, so be sure to ask about any romantic add-ons that are available.
"Always check for romance packages and room upgrades that may be available," said Nicole Steger of The Travel Team, Inc. "Many times the extra cost of a package or room upgrade is worth the amenities included. Doesn’t breakfast in bed one morning and your own private beach cabana for the day sound nice?!"
For LGBTQ couples, it's important to find destinations that are welcoming and inclusive. Look for hotels and resorts that advertise themselves as LGBTQ-friendly, and consider destinations that have a reputation for being open-minded and accepting.
"Specializing in LGBTQ travel, I always suggest a destination that will be welcoming," said Scott Wismont of Rainbow Getaways. "This allows my travelers to be themselves and enjoy the romantic getaways."
Finally, make sure you book with a verified travel advisor. They can help you find the best deals and make sure all the details are taken care of, so you can focus on enjoying your trip. With a little planning and research, you can book a romantic getaway that will create lasting memories for you and your partner.
"When planning romance travel, I know right from the start it’s a special thing for a couple," said Katie Ehlers of LuxTravel Katie, an affiliate of Classic Travel Connection. "Whether it’s a honeymoon, anniversary trip or milestone, I always add special touches for my clients, such as having a picture of the two of them printed and framed in the room upon arrival."
