It is a good idea to get a sense of what is going on during the time you want to travel. Check out weather, crowds, and availability of places to stay well ahead of time. You can avoid disappointment if you have your heart set on something that wont’ work when you planning to be there.
Depending on how often you have travelled together in the past, this may be a long or short conversation. You’ll want to talk about what this trip looks like to each one of you. Lots of pool and sun time or days hiking and snorkeling followed by a high end dinner? Most destinations will offer lots of choices. Be ready to be flexible with each other, and know that you may not be able to fit in absolutely everything on both of your lists and that’s okay.
Speaking of lists- definitely make one. Especially if this is a longer trip than you are used to taking, keep notes as you plan using your favorite method. Record important dates for reservations, confirmation numbers and anything else you’ll need to have with you.
Most couples are busier than ever today just with work and normal life. A lot of couples get help from a wedding planner to ease some of the stress, and more and more are also using an expert travel agent to help as well. A good agent will help you as much or as little as you’d like, with the goal of making your trip being the absolute best it can be.
