Take a Road Trip
A road trip is an ideal way to enjoy long conversations with your partner while exploring the world together. Pick a destination not more than three to four hours away from home. Look for a small town in your region which has something special to offer such as a historic site, a winery, or a great restaurant. If you are looking to reignite the sexual fire, hit a secluded road and make out on the back seat of your car. Not to mention that road trips are much cheaper as they save you loads on airline tickets.
Look for a Package Deal
When it comes to travelling, putting all your eggs in one basket can rather work in your favor. Purchasing air tickets, accommodations, sightseeing, car rental and more together will not only save you money but also time and effort.
We recommend to book with online travel portals as they offer much better deals than desk travel agents. If you are one of our friends based in India, you can benefit from booking through this website called Cashkaro.com. You can earn cash back on retailers you shop at. All you have to do it, visit their site, pick a travel partner like Expedia, Make my trip, Yatra, and more and shop the usual way. And wow, you get cask back using the site. The best part is their discounts or cash back are always over and above any ongoing offer.
Find Alternatives to Expensive Hotels
If you can sacrifice the luxurious amenities like spa treatments and room services, you can save a lot by skipping the hotel. Get adventurous and consider small apartments or bread and breakfast as an option. In fact, renting an apartment will not only cut your accommodation and food bill, you can also enjoy living like a local for the duration of your trip. To make your getaway more romantic, settle in for a night of pampering. Forget the expensive spa’s and treat each other to a full body massage. If possible, run a bubble bath together. Relax in the bed the next day.
Overall, a romantic getaway does not have to cost you an arm and a leg. All it requires is a little planning and creativity. If possible, take time to plan ahead so that you get a clear vision of what you want and at the same time not miss out on the great deals.
