Hotels.ca Presents 10 Tips to Make Travelling as a Couple Easier


    


    
</pre>
<p><span class="xn-location">TORONTO</span>, <span class="xn-chron">Aug. 4</span> /CNW/ -- No matter how much you are looking forward to going away with a significant other, travelling together can be a challenge. It doesn't matter if you have been married for decades or are just testing the waters as a couple, what can you do to ensure a blissful getaway? Hotels.ca offers a few ways to help make the vacation a great experience.</p>
<pre>
    

    1. Plan it together - It's important that you both feel like you have a
       part in the trip's success. A website, like Hotels.ca is helpful
because
       you can check out all kinds of accommodations from bed and breakfast
       properties to boutique hotels to vacation rentals to spa resorts.
       Together you can read the guest reviews, and check out the location
       relative to the sites you want to see.
    2. Work on each other's strength - During planning, if one of you is a
       savvy researcher then perhaps that person can do the destination
       investigation while the other could be responsible for booking the
       flights or hotels. Working with each other's strengths is even more
       important while travelling; whether it is to navigate the drive, pack
or
       plan the itinerary, this can make the trip more successful.
    3. Pace Yourselves - Take time for the small moments and some relaxation.
       Factor in downtime for your vacation as well as extra time while
       sightseeing.
    4. Communicate - Seems simple enough, but sometimes the questions need to
       be asked. Are you tired? Are you hungry? Do you want to stay in this
       town for another day? We can quickly forget that we are not mind
       readers. Be sure to let your partner know what you're thinking before
       it's too late to do something about it.
    5. Take Time for Yourself - It's important on vacation to have some time
       for yourself, whether it is to relax or explore.  Bring a book, iPod or
       stationery to write a letter. Time of solitude can help you overcome a
       cranky attitude.
    6. Do Not Disturb - Travel can be tough on people, particularly if you
have
       a regular sleeping pattern.  Make sure to sleep-in and enjoy the
       benefits of a good rest when you're away.
    7. Try Something New - Adding a first-time adventure for the couple can
       create an exciting day for both and wonderful memory to treasure.
    8. Stick with the Budget - Know what you want to spend before you go, but
       be sure to add in a little splurge money for the opportunities that
       spring up when travelling.
    9. Use the Hotel Concierge - Frequent travelers know that the concierge
can
       make things happen. They often have discount tickets to area
       attractions, know the best restaurants and want to help make your hotel
       stay special.
    10. You Don't Have to Go Far to Get Away - A vacation is merely a break
        from the ordinary.  And sometimes staying in a nearby resort can feel
        like you're one million miles away.
