First Time Couple? Here Are Some Helpful Travel Tips

Friday, 18 February 2022

As a couple, there is nothing which can be more exciting than the first time you spend a holiday together abroad. When you are dating, you want to spend as much time with each other as possible, and this includes going on holiday abroad for the first time as a couple. When you are getting ready to travel there will be a ton of excitement and anticipation, and here are some things to think about when going on the trip. 

Plan Your Trip 

Before you go ahead and book a holiday with your new partner, you first want to plan what you will do, where you are going, and how long for. The Travis visual travel planner is a useful app that allows you to curate your whole trip from start to finish in one place meaning you don’t have to have 15 tabs open in your browser at once! 

Prepare for the Flight 

Flights are something which if you have never flown before, can be pretty intimidating, to say the least. Flying with your partner for the first time will give you a sense of safety and comfort right away, but you will also want to think about bringing some entertainment onto the plane with you to pass the time. A deck of playing cards will be great because you can both play together and keep each other distracted, or you can download a movie onto your laptop and watch it with earphones in. Whatever you choose, it will make the flight go so much smoother. 

There Will Be Ups and Downs  

You will likely be preparing for your first couples holiday with the idea of romantic strolls on the beach, candlelit dinners and romantic gestures everywhere, but it isn’t realistic to think that everything will be romantic on holiday. In actual fact, this might be the first time you’ve both spent this long living together, and it is impossible to be romantic 24 hours a day. Expect some silence, some little tiffs and times where you both sit and do something entirely different for a while. It is normal, and it isn’t anything to worry about! 

You Might Get Stressed

There will be a huge ball of excitement building up when it comes to planning and being on holiday with your love, but there will also be some stress. You’ll have to decide where you will go, what you are packing, how much money to take and then while you are there you’ll be waiting for the other one to get ready to go out… there will always be some annoyances to deal with. But these little stresses will be nothing compared to the fun you will have together. 

Share Your Luggage Space 

If you are going to a hot country together, then you won’t need to bring too many layers, and this means that it is pointless carrying a suitcase each. It makes much more sense to share your luggage space if you can because it will save you money and time when unpacking at the destination. You won’t need to worry about forgetting your bags because everything will be in one easy to access place for you both. 

Save Up Together 

When it comes to paying for everything on your trip away, there will always be a worry that you aren’t contributing enough and you can feel guilty if your partner pays for everything. To combat this, make sure that you pool your funds together before you leave, and both pay an equal amount towards your spending money. While you are away, this means you both feel happy with contributing towards activities and you have more money to spend on things like meals out and fun activities together. 

Explore New Places 

It is always fantastic landing in an entirely new place and having the freedom to go and explore the area. When you land in a new place with your partner, be brave and visit new territory. Don’t be scared to try new activities and go where no one has gone before because it will allow you both to spend some quality time together and chat. 


When you go on holiday, you will always have the ideal opportunity to spend as much time as possible with the other person, and this can allow you to form a more tangible relationship with each other. When it comes to you as a couple, you will have the chance to get to know each other on a much deeper level, and it can be one of the greatest privileges in the world. Having that time alone to be with only each other is precisely what you need to feel close, and you will come home having learned some more of their adorable quirks and loves.
