First Couples Holiday? Make It A Trip To Remember With These Top Tips


Your first holiday together as a couple is an exciting step in your relationship. It shows trust, commitment and that you both want your relationship to progress forward. But it can also have a negative outcome too. Some couples are not always ready to spend so much time alone together and could break up as a result. This is usually due to lack of planning and compromise. So to make this holiday the first of many, here are some top tips to make it a roaring success.

Have a practice run first

Instead of just planning a two week holiday straight away, think about planning a practise holiday first. You could have a weekend break at Hoburne Holiday Parks or spend a few days exploring London or Manchester. This will give you the opportunity to get used to being together 24/7 and see what interests you both have. You might realise you love the same kind of attractions or have different interests. Doing this will give you a good indication of whether you’re both ready to go on a big holiday and what kind of trips and activities you could plan.  Plus if it doesn’t go quite to plan, you don’t have an awkward long haul flight to deal with.

Research your destination

If you think you’re ready to go on holiday together, it’s time to start looking at possible destinations. Don’t just book your trip without doing plenty of research into destinations beforehand. Or you could end up going somewhere entirely unsuitable. Try to do this research together using holiday websites, reviews and brochures to help you. You need to find somewhere that caters to both of your needs and interests to make it as enjoyable as possible. Be considerate of each other’s opinions and compromise when appropriate. That way you should find a destination that is perfect for you and your partner, rather than just you alone.

Try something different

This holiday is the ideal opportunity for you and your partner to try something different. Try to find an activity neither of you have done before at your holiday destination. It could be going on a cruise, going sky diving or visiting a theme park. While you will obviously have your own interests, make the effort to push your boundaries and do something you wouldn’t usually do. This will not only make this holiday more memorable, but it will also help you get to know each other a lot better.

Don’t overload your schedule

It’s good to have some activities planned for your holiday before you leave. But if you fill up your schedule too much it may make your holiday feel too much like hard work. This can lead to arguments that could have been easily avoided. You may find there are places to see and attractions that you hadn’t see online that interest you both. So give yourself some free time just to go with the flow and just enjoy being together.

With these tips to help you, there’s no reasons why you can’t enjoy every second of your holiday together.


  1. I think it is all about balance. When we went on holidays before children, we would spend time together chilling but then would visit places together and see some amazing sights x

  2. I love going on holiday with my mister, we have been to some great places and some proper rubbish places. We both like time to chill and relax xx
